It’s spring now and for some homeowners that means it’s time to make a few changes in the house. A new roof, new windows, or perhaps some new countertops. If you’re thinking about installing new kitchen or bathroom countertops, textured quartz is becoming the new trend. Granite has often been the popular choice for those wanting a strong, clean and good looking countertop, but Quartz countertops are gaining popularity and for good reason.
Quartz countertops are extremely easy to clean. They don’t require annual sealing treatments, so you don’t need to worry about bacteria seeping into pores or the added maintenance cost. To clean, all you need is some warm soapy water. Afraid of stains? Quartz is stain resistant, making coffee, juice, or wine stains a thing of the past. Textured quartz is a great choice if you’re looking to get a uniformed appearance. It is also heat and scratch resistant, being a material only surpassed in hardness by diamond and a handful of other precious stones.
Quartz countertops are available in a stunning array of colors, ranging from the standard eggshell white, through a spectrum of chocolates, ocean blues, and ebony blacks;as well as several patterns designed to resemble tiger eye, jasperor amethyst.
