For years in the interior design industry, granite was the gold standard for countertops. But today, homeowners are discovering the beauty and versatility of quartz countertops. A stunning alternative to natural stone like granite or marble is quartz. While many may consider quartz to be a natural stone, it is not. This surface is a manufactured product that is stunning and can mimic that of natural stone. One of the advantages of using quartz on your countertops is that it can be fabricated into vibrant modern colors that you cannot get in a natural stone. Depending on the look you want to achieve in your space, quartz may be the right choice. At Delorie Countertops & Doors, we offer a wide selection of quartz countertops products in our massive Pompano Beach showroom.
What are the pros of using quartz as a countertop material?
If you’re looking for an excellent countertop material, then you can’t go wrong with quartz. You want the most beautiful and durable countertop in your kitchen and bath, especially if you have kids or pets. When you choose quartz, you get all of that and more.
- Quartz is strong, durable, and features bright, appealing colors. Because it is just as popular today as granite, some like to say that it is more scratch and scuff resistant than natural stone.
- Quartz has a non-porous surface that is more stain-resistant than granite, marble, and concrete. When you choose a quartz product on your countertops or backsplash, your home will look stylish and sleek. Also hygienic, its non-porous surface helps keep the germ population at bay.
When you select a slab of granite, you generally don’t get to choose the color scheme. Sure, you want a product with the colors you like, and because quartz is manufactured, you have a say in the choice of the color and specific piece you want.
