The kitchen is a very valuable part of the household. For some families, it is the melting pot while for others, it is where homeowners spend the entire day. There has been a growing trend of granite kitchen top counters across many American households. It makes a great material to hold kitchen appliances and be the venue where people pound meat and chop all those vegetables and fruits.
However, there is a growing interest in quartz countertops. It is said to be one of the hardest materials on earth with a non-porous surface, which makes it one of the most preferred countertops for kitchen remodeling. Quartz is an abundant gem stone that makes it easily available. The beauty of quartz is seen in its natural gem-like color. Some manufacturers can even create an anti-microbial protection countertop to prevent molds and mildew from forming.
Stylish quartz countertops are not just used for the aesthetic quality but also because they are stain proof. This is thanks to its non-porous surface. Even the toughest coffee stains would not be able to penetrate through its surface. Other materials used for kitchen countertops (such as limestone, granite, etc.) need to be sealed or treated since they have porous surfaces. Quartz countertops are maintenance free and are ready to be used right after it is done.
In terms of cost, quartz countertops are the same as granite so if a homeowner or chef is having his or her kitchen remodeled and is thinking of the right material to use, quartz would make an excellent choice. Aside from it being clean, it is also very durable since it is safe from scratches, scorches or burns.
Quartz countertops are available in different colors, sizes, and molds. They would look good in any type of kitchen setting and since they are relatively low maintenance, they will last long – even outliving your next kitchen remodeling.
When considering what will go into the kitchen, it is important to think about how long it will last and how it will withstand the different elements that are found in an ordinary household. Since this is a place where the cooking will take place, the cleanliness is a vital aspect. Also, there are times when guests will enter the kitchen as it is natural for them to gravitate towards the food source. Having a kitchen that is not only clean but has aesthetic quality as well will make the entire experience better.
Working in the kitchen will be more fun with a nice and new countertop especially when one knows that it is of the best quality and will not get stained, scratched, or burned. It is generally a more environment-friendly material so not only will the kitchen be greener, it is also more modern and contemporary.
