Quartz countertops are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners looking to upgrade their kitchens. Here’s the scoop on all you need to know about them.
What Is a Quartz Countertop Made Of?
Quartz is a type of natural rock that is found all over the world, and quartz countertops are made by combining ground quartz with resins and pigments to create a hard, non-porous surface.
Why Choose Quartz?
There are many reasons why they are a great choice for both bathrooms and kitchens. Here are just a few of the benefits:
They are extremely durable. This makes them an ideal material as they are resistant to scratches, staining, and heat damage. If you’re looking for a countertop that will last you a long time, quartz will be it.
Easy To Maintain
Since quartz is less porous than marble, it won’t stain or harbour bacteria as easily as some other natural stone countertops. Many countertop surfaces require semi-regularly sealing to prevent staining and bacteria absorption, but quartz doesn’t require sealing! One less thing to add to your home maintenance list.
As quartz is technically man-made, it comes with the same beauty that all natural stone countertops do, but it stands apart in its ability to be personalized. Because of this, they are available in many style and colour variations to match your space perfectly. In fact, at Cover-Ups, we carry over 40 different style and colour varieties in our store!
How To Clean Quartz Countertops
A popular cleaning solution is vinegar and water. If you use this type of cleaning solution, then this is your cue to switch. Vinegar is acidic and can damage your natural stone countertops, even quartz! Change to a mild soap and water solution, and check out our previous blog for more tips on cleaning your vanity.
