Quartz countertops are a beautiful, high-functioning feature that will make your kitchen more livable as well as add timeless appeal and value to your home.
Quartz has great functional features that make it an ideal selection for kitchen and bath projects. It is extremely durable with its stain resistance and low incidence of chipping and breaking. It also does not need to be sealed ever. Its increasing popularity can be attributed not just to its performance but just as important are the much improved color offerings available now.
In terms of aesthetics, quartz countertops offer a greater consistency in color as quartz is manufactured and therefore does not have the variation of natural stone. This means what you see on a sample should match what is installed into your home.
We work with quartz in approximately 40% of our kitchen and bath projects. The LG Viatera “Musica” Collection features some popular neutral colors, in particular Aria, Minuet and Rococo. See the full collection here.
And wherever we look we cannot escape the popularity of the white kitchen! Transitional and contemporary kitchen design is dominated by white, and white quartz countertops such as LG’s Snow Storm or White Zeus Extreme from Silestone have tremendous appeal.
Quartz also provides a great option for those who want the look of marble but are hesitant about marble’s softness and incidence of staining. Caesarstone’s new color line up for 2016 is a great alternative to marble, view it here .
Whatever your color palette for your new kitchen or kitchen update, Quartz is likely to have the color options as well at the functionality to meet your needs.
