The kitchen area is inherently a high-traffic area; be it a workstation, baking area or your go-to social area, your kitchen countertops will see a lot of movement. And for those with a particular gusto for hosting, taking into consideration the durability of a countertop becomes extremely important. And there is a reason quartz countertops become top sellers- their superior durability compared to natural stone countertops makes them ideal for high-traffic areas.
For one, quartz countertops can mimic the look and feel of classic marble, as quartz countertops are man made, engineered stones. Therefore, quartz countertops can come in a wide array of colors, so you can choose the best look for your personal aesthetic. However, unlike marble countertops, quartz won’t etch, scratch, or chip with heavy use. With this engineered stone, you can achieve the timeless look of marble, without having to worry about its maintenance.
For our social butterflies who love to host, quartz is inarguably the better option for kitchen countertops because this material requires no sealant. This low-maintenance material only requires soapy water to clean, and a daily wipe-down is more than enough.
Quartz countertops are also non-porous, making them a great option for people who forget to use coasters. Since this material won’t absorb any stains leftover, you can focus on hosting rather than chasing down every wine glass with a napkin.
While some may object to the higher price tag quartz naturally comes with, the premium price really seems small when you get down to the nitty-gritty. Quartz countertops require much less maintenance and care than natural stone, so in the long run the benefits quartz offers quickly outweigh the initial investment.
There’s no denying that kitchen countertops have become the focal point in most houses. And with this increased use, home renovators are looking to make longer-term investments in their installations. While quartz countertops have long been a popular choice among homeowners, hosting has never been easier than with our wide range of quartz countertop colors.
