5 benefits of quartz countertops

More and more of our customers are choosing quartz counters for their kitchen remodels. Not only can quartz mimic the appearance of more expensive materials like marble, but it is also stain-resistant. In this blog post, we go over the 5 reasons kitchen quartz countertops are so popular so you can make the best decision for your home. For more information, our countertop installation contractors recommend visiting a quartz countertop store near you.

1. Easy to clean

Quartz is a non-porous material, which means you don’t have to worry about stains seeping through the surface of your new kitchen countertops. If you spill on your quartz countertops, simply blot away the stain with a damp washcloth and dry with a towel. You also don’t have to worry about whether someone is using a coaster. The condensation drips won’t cause water stains on quartz countertops.

You don’t have to worry about water stains like you do with marble countertops. For this reason, quartz countertops are perfect for kitchens and bathrooms where you can expect water drips around the sinks or the occasional spill. Quartz is a durable countertop material that’s kid-proof and life-proof.

2. Low maintenance

To maintain the shine of your kitchen and bathroom quartz countertops, simply wipe down with a soapy washcloth. You have a busy life, why spend more time than you have to on countertop maintenance?

3. Wide range of colors

Since quartz is manufactured, you are able to choose from a wide range of quartz countertop colors from apple green to smoky gray. Natural stone countertops can’t offer the same range of colors as quartz. Quartz even allows you to choose designs that mimic the look of more expensive materials, like marble. While quartz is versatile enough to fit into any kitchen’s interior design, some people may be bothered by the seams that are sometimes noticeable on quartz countertops.

4. Sanitary cleaning surface

Quartz is non-porous, which means bacteria and viruses have fewer places to hide in your kitchen. If you are concerned with keeping your kitchen a clean place to cook, you may want to consider the pros and cons of quartz countertops.

One of the benefits of quartz countertops is that they’re not covered in microscopic holes that harbor bacteria. Quartz countertops will keep your kitchen clean and sanitary. Since odor-causing bacteria can’t hide in the surface of your countertop, this also cuts down on smell.


To keep your countertops looking nice for years to come, we always recommend using cutting boards. However, quartz is a scratch-resistant countertop material that won’t scratch or chip when using a knife directly on the surface. Many of our customers appreciate being able to choose bathroom and kitchen countertops that will stand the test of time.
