What’s the best material to make every room in your house beautiful and unique? It’s natural stone quartz, of course! Granite and marble are the most common materials that come to mind when deciding on home renovation materials. These have been readily available and transforming homes for over 50 years. Granite and marble materials replaced laminate, the more traditional material of the time. They brought the look of nature inside.
Natural stone quartz counters didn’t appear in American homes until the 1990’s but they have actually been around much longer. Quartz countertops were first invented in Italy by Marcello Toncelli in 1963. Toncelli changed the way we see renovation. He took one of the earth’s hardest and most abundant materials and added man made engineering. There are many different reasons for choosing natural stone quartz for countertops. Quartz is prized for its durability and flexibility, for its nonabsorbent matter and dazzling array of color options.
Perhaps describing quartz as super durable and flexible sounds rather odd. Yet that is just what quartz is. Natural stone quartz is combined with resins to bind the particles together, which makes it both flexible and extremely durable. What this means is that not only do you have more options for where and how you can have your countertops, they will stand the test of time.
Home surfaces get residue on them such as food, spills, and all other sorts of “stuff.” What we do not want is to have harmful bacteria growing in the surface areas. Quartz is amazing because it is non-porous, which means it is non-absorbent. That raw chicken you were cutting next to the sink or that beef patty ready for the grill in your outdoor kitchen will not leave their invisible mark on quartz. It also means that if you spill some wine or coffee they won’t leave a footprint. Just wipe and go. Last but far from least are the color choices. For all this durability and hygienic glory it seems that there would be few color choices right? Nope, you can go all natural with woodsy shades to bright pink, red, blue or green. That way you can have just the right colors to fit the home and you.
If these reasons to get natural stone quartz did not catch your eye here are just a few more quick ones:
* Natural stone quartz can be cheaper if not comparable to the cost of granite and is easier to place in your home due to its flexible structure.
* It is more environmentally friendly since it doesn’t have to be mined outside the country in huge slabs because it is readily available.
* Quartz has an even color consistency because it is engineered, making the look flawless and irresistible.
