Current Obsessions: Maximize Your Kitchen Upgrade with a Quartz Countertop

December 06, 2017

A kitchen renovation is a huge undertaking, and far too many homeowners look back and regret decisions they made (or didn't make) during the process. Don't cut corners now only to regret it in the long run. Make the most of your kitchen remodel by choosing low maintenance, high-style, quartz countertops

The cost of a quartz countertop may seem expensive when compared to other materials, but remember, you will most likely keep the same countertops in your home for years or even decades. The easy care of quartz will pay for itself, as it requires no yearly sealing, special cleaning products, or other costly and time-consuming maintenance. Even everyone's favorite white quartz countertop—like this lovely Cashmere Oro Quartz by MSI—will retain its fresh and clean look without much effort. If this white kitchen has you longing for more, check out even more white dream kitchens

Another benefit of quartz vs. a natural stone such as granite is the wide variety of colors and styles offered. You could opt for a sleek, contemporary look like the monochromatic Hazelwood Quartz from MSI. Then again, perhaps a classic marble-look quartz like Fairy White Quartz, with its delicate grey veining on a soft white background, is more your style. The possibilities are endless and there's truly something for everyone when it comes to quartz countertops

Even though quartz has a huge assortment of styles to peruse, you can be sure of getting a consistent, man-made pattern with no imperfections or color blemishes to contend with. With natural stone, all bets are off about getting exactly the hues and pattern you fell in love with in the showroom. However, just because quartz is consistent doesn't mean it's boring! Quartz can have just as much variety and interest as natural stone, as seen in this image of Toasted Almond Quartz countertops from the Q Premium line.

Not only is quartz a stylish choice, but it's also a smart decision for your next remodel. Quartz is resistant to chipping, scratching, and staining, making it a worthwhile investment that will withstand the daily wear and tear of cooking and cleaning with ease. And with an elegant, natural-looking slab like Fossil Brown Quartz, you won't grow tired of your countertops in a year or two. Instead, you’re likely to appreciate their durability and easy maintenance more and more as the years go by.
