And, we’ll let you know everything you should know about choosing quartz countertops, why finding the right color is so important, how you can find the right thickness, what you should expect for quartz maintenance, and much more.

Choosing the Color and Pattern

This is where most people start; they take a look at samples in order to find the color and pattern that speaks to them. Do you have a certain style or aesthetic in mind? We can help point you in the right direction to achieve the look. 

There are a variety of different colors and patterns available so when purchasing quartz, you want to think about the space it’s going to be in. It can be a good idea to bring in paint samples, cabinet samples and keep in mind your appliances and other parts of the kitchen.

You’ll also want to take a look at the different patterns that are available. There is a myriad of different designs from marble looking designs to speckled styles, which can completely change the look and style of your kitchen. We can help find the right match for your unique kitchen design.

Choosing the Right Size

Along with making sure that the countertop is aesthetically pleasing, we also need to make sure the countertop is the appropriate size and thickness to fit into your space. Determining length and width is simple, as this just requires measuring the dimensions where you want the countertop to go. We can take care of this for you!

For thickness, the typical thickness for one of these countertops is 1 ¼ inch. Depending on the space, how much it’s going to be used, and what it’s going to be used for, we may recommend a different thickness.

Quartz Maintenance

Quartz countertops are relatively easy to maintain. You won’t need to seal quartz in order to protect it from moisture. Instead, cleaning with water and soap should be sufficient for keeping your quartz countertop clean.
