Quartz – the Countertop Buyers Love



Quartz countertops have been around for decades, yet they are one of the

hottest design materials this spring. Available in a variety of colors, this natural

stone is not only durable but beautiful, and more and more homebuyers are

putting quartz countertops on their must-have list.


Quartz is a natural material best known for the beautiful crystals it forms. Quartz

countertops are not pure quartz, however, and contain no crystals. Instead, the

countertop is engineered using quartz, resins, and pigment. As a result, there is a

quartz color palette for any design aesthetic. Home shows featuring the newest

home trends for 2020 showcased quartz countertops of white, gray, slate and

blue.


Quartz is one of the best choices for durability as well. Unlike granite or tile,

which can crack and chip, the resin included in quartz countertops is almost

indestructible. While other surfaces can scar and burn if subjected to hot

cookware, quartz will stand up to the heat of cooking, making it a top choice for

homebuyers of all culinary skill levels.


Quartz is also low maintenance compared to its more porous counterparts.

Whereas natural stone and granite can absorb liquids, causing stains, quartz does

not have this issue. No longer do homeowners need to fear dripping red wine or spaghetti sauce on the kitchen island. Along with this, quartz is antimicrobial—

meaning that bacteria can be easily wiped away—making your kitchen countertop

truly one of the healthiest surfaces in your home.


Quartz countertops are just one of the many improvements that homebuyers

crave. Quartz is beautiful, durable, healthy, and sustainable; it’s no wonder

homebuyers have made these countertops important items in their home search.
