Every year, home design observes popular trends that gain steam, and 2015 is no different. One of the hottest design trends of this year is the use of quartz surfaces. But what exactly makes quartz stand out amongst the other surface options? Let’s have a look at a few of the defining characteristics that have helped make this material the leading countertop material of the year.

Built to Last

Because countertops are featured in the most commonly used rooms of a home, they are susceptible to wear and tear. Kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities must withstand the normal activities of daily life. It’s safe to say that quartz has this covered.

Aesthetic Beauty

Another reason quartz earns its spot on the top of the chart is, not only is it built to last, it’s also a beautiful surface. Now available in a wide range of unique colors and styles, quartz slabs cater to individual preferences and home decor choices more than ever before. The beauty of quartz is also available in multiple colors. Because quartz is manufactured stone, it can be uniquely crafted in a variety of colors, no matter what your design taste is – a feature that other surfaces cannot boast.

Environmentally Friendly

The emphasis on eco-friendly products and sustainable practices plays a viable role in protecting our environment. Quartz is the perfect solution to these green commitments. This natural stone surface is non-toxic and leaves a minimal ecological footprint.
