Many new homeowners and those who are renovating are going with stone for their counters and worktops. Quartz is getting increasingly popular, and for good reason. Here are some reasons why a quartz worktop might be a great choice for you:[/vc_column_text][vc_gap height=”20″][vc_heading title=”1. Stain resistance” type=”h2″ style=”style1″ divider_width=”full” divider_color=”dark” text_transform=”Default” color=”default” align=”left” margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]If you spill something, anything on a quartz countertop, simply wipe it away and be done with it. Quartz worktops are impermeable, so nothing can get into any crevices or cracks to stick around and ruin the look of the worktop. The same can’t be said for granite and you can be sure that quartz will maintain its high quality look well after installation.[/vc_column_text][vc_gap height=”20″][vc_heading title=”2. Mould, mildew, and bacteria resistant” type=”h2″ style=”style1″ divider_width=”full” divider_color=”dark” text_transform=”Default” color=”default” align=”left” margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]The lack of permeability that we spoke about above also makes quartz a forbidding location for nasty additions like mould, mildew, and bacteria – so much so that disinfecting your quartz counter will be a breeze. This also makes it ideal for bathroom counters as well. It doesn’t hold moisture at all, and mould, mildew, and bacteria need and thrive on moisture. Wiping it down regularly with a household cleaner will easily keep it clean and sanitised.[/vc_column_text][vc_gap height=”20″][vc_heading title=”3. Can take a beating” type=”h2″ style=”style1″ divider_width=”full” divider_color=”dark” text_transform=”Default” color=”default” align=”left” margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]Quartz is very tough. In fact, there are few things in the world that are as strong and can take a beating like quartz can. The only things harder are diamond, topaz, and sapphire. You or your children can drop things on it, smack it with utensils, or scrap pizza stone across it, and it will still look as good as new. It is also very heat resistant, so there’s no worry if you put down a hot pot by accident.[/vc_column_text][vc_gap height=”20″][vc_heading title=”4. Easy maintenance” type=”h2″ style=”style1″ divider_width=”full” divider_color=”dark” text_transform=”Default” color=”default” align=”left” margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]Quartz is much easier to maintain than its countertop cousins. With other countertops, such as granite, there are very specific cleaning instructions that must be followed to keep it looking as good as new. Not so with quartz! You can use any of your favourite cleaners on it, including vinegar, and it will retain its shine, colour, and look throughout its lifetime. Also, with quartz, you do not need to seal it regularly to prevent bacteria growth, unlike granite.[/vc_column_text][vc_gap height=”20″][vc_heading title=”5. Colours and textures” type=”h2″ style=”style1″ divider_width=”full” divider_color=”dark” text_transform=”Default” color=”default” align=”left” margin_bottom=”20″][vc_column_text]Interior decorators love quartz (or at least they should!) for the amount of colours in which it is available. Because it is manufactured, it comes with many more colour options that its natural stone counterparts such as granite or marble. The texture can also be manufactured to suit the needs of the buyer, making it a great option to cater for all your decorating needs. It usually has a pretty contemporary look, but can be altered and manufactured to fit the tone of the rest of the room.[/vc_column_text][vc_gap height=”20″][vc_column_text]When you’re renovating your home, it can be difficult to get things that are exactly what you want at the price you want it. Quartz countertops are a great choice because of this. There is no other worktop product that can be manufactured to give you the perfect colour and texture for your kitchen or bathroom. At the same time, it provides unmatched bacteria and mould protection, making maintenance a breeze.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”large” style=”normal” color=”light” align=”center” margin_top=”5″ margin_bottom=”25″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ el_class=”sidebargrey”][vc_column_text]
