| | Quartz

Until more recently, granite was the only word you’d hear from home owners to describe the countertops for their dream kitchens. With incredible elegance, value, durability and return on investment, it’s no wonder granite countertops have reigned at the top of interior design wish list. But now, granite shares this top spot with another great countertop material; quartz. Quartz countertops of today aren’t anything like they were decades ago. They have really come a long way in their looks and design and are a major contender on the countertop market. As experts in not only granite, but quartz countertops as well, we would like to tell you more about the rise of quartz and what makes it a must-have on your wish list. And, when you’re ready, stop by our showroom to see what quartz countertops will work for your Wayzata home. We would love to answer any questions you might have about them and help you get started selecting your new, beautiful quartz countertops.

One reason for the upswing in quartz countertops all over the area is their unmatched durability. Thanks to the quartz content, it’s tough and super durable and resistant to stains and scratches. And, in terms of maintenance, quartz countertop surfaces require none; no sealants, no wax. As quartz countertops are non-porous, it also makes them easier to clean and fend off bacteria; making them ideal for families.

Quartz countertops come in a very wide range of colors and patterns, including solid colors and imitation granite. Countertops made from natural stones like granite, however, can be a little more limited due to the natural process from which they are made.

With so many options in the selection of quartz countertops, it allows homeowners and interior designers to control the overall color and texture throughout the design process, ensuring a more cohesive and simple look. Fabricators are able to create stunning quartz countertops that fit around sinks or curved cabinet ends easily.

And, these are just some of the great reasons quartz has seen a huge uptick. Ready to learn more about what makes quartz countertops so perfect for your home?
