In 2021, the upgraded kitchen isn’t complete without those shiny new stone countertops. These days, engineered stone counters are popular, for a number of reasons.
You may be more familiar with the term “Quartz” as the Portland industry refers to it. This material is formed from quartz crystals and held together with resin. It is compressed into slabs that have similar color and texture to natural granite and slate. Colors and patterns are expansive.
You’ll find popular earth tones and neutral colors such as gray and black, as well as marbling, speckled and solid patterns in different sheens. The options are virtually limitless!
Discerning homeowners appreciate the array of benefits inherent in quartz countertops.
- Non-porous surface – in these days of COVID we are more aware of bacteria and contaminants. Quartz is non-porous and therefore won’t provide hiding places for harmful bacteria.
- Non-staining surface – this really is at the top of the list for avid cooks and red wine lovers! Red ring left on the counter? No problem! Wipes off with a wet soapy dishcloth.
- Heat resistant – home chefs can confidently set a hot pot on quartz. No burning, no searing or melting.
