Quartz countertops, the new alternative
2017 is the year for homeowners to finally change their homes into what previously had only been a dream. This is because:
- Today’s challenge in the building industry that creates a restriction in the amount of homes built for sale.
- There has been a huge increase in the price of existing homes.
- Home renovation adds value to the asking price for homes
- Household income has increased since the recession. More homeowners have the resources to fix up their homes.
Quartz countertops are making their move to more and more homes.
According to the U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trend Study, 40% of homeowners now choose quartz for their kitchen countertops. Up until recently granite was the go-to for kitchen renovation due to its style and status.
Some quick facts about granite and quartz
- Quartz countertops compare wel to granite in strength but in addition bring benefit of greater flexibility.
- Granite must be sealed before use and repeated every year. This will ensure your countertops remain stain resistant. Without the sealant they can retain moisture and discolor.
Both Quartz and Granite Worktops:
- Are durable; however, neither is indestructible.
- Both are stain resistant. A simple spill only requires a speedy clean-up to prevent nearly any stain (if your granite is properly sealed).
Durability and flexibility sound a little strange when describing a surface material.
Yet that is just what makes elegant quartz such a strong choice. Because it is human-engineered it has the added benefit of being more flexible than other materials. That added flexibility means that it can be finished with fantastic edges and shapes for just the right look you’ve been searching for.
Your color choices are virtually unlimited
The trending quartz colors for 2017 are neutrals, with white quartz countertops as one of the top picks. The beauty of quartz manufacturing is that you can choose from many different shades of beige or white.
Quartz colors can accent even the smallest of rooms
With neutral in gear and stainless steel appliances in demand, the use of accent colors can be a cost-effective way to get creative and tie a whole room together.
