Quartz is a beautiful, natural material. Many homeowners choose quartz for their bathroom remodeling projects because it adds a graceful ambience to the home. Quartz is also ideal for other interior applications, including kitchen countertops, backsplashes, and even flooring. When you choose quartz countertops for your bathroom renovation project, you can enjoy a beautiful new bathroom that requires only minimal upkeep. Here’s a look at some of the attributes of quartz applications:
Strength and Durability
Bathroom countertops made from quartz last for years. Quartz is four times stronger than granite, which means it is highly resistant to chipping and scratching. In fact, homeowners who use quartz as a kitchen countertop are urged to use cutting boards, because the hardness of the countertop can dull knives. Bathroom remodeling projects should be practical as well as aesthetic, and quartz applications offer the best of both worlds.
Quartz is the only bathroom countertop material that offers built-in anti-microbial protection. It combats the spread of mildew, mold, and bacteria. This germ protection is built right into the countertop; it will not wear away with use. Additionally, most quartz is non-porous, which means that it does not readily stain and never requires a sealant. It requires only minimal cleaning; simply wipe the surface with a damp rag and a mild household cleaner. No special cleaning products are required.
Quartz countertops are available in a variety of colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find one that will complement your bathroom renovations. Unlike granite, the colors and patterns of quartz remain consistent from sample to slab. This means that you won’t have to go to a stone yard or end up with unpredictable results.
