Benefits of Quartz Bathroom Countertops
Like everything else in the world of bathroom countertops, quartz has its list of pros and cons. Whether the pros outweigh the cons, or vice versa, really depends on the needs and preferences of the individual and their bathroom. That means the first step in determining what the benefits of quartz bathroom countertops are for you is to identify your needs and preferences.
The next step would be to educate yourself on quartz. It’s not a subject matter that’s foreign to us, so we’ll help you there. The first thing to know is that quartz is man-made, which already separates it from most other countertop materials. Quartz is engineered using 90% ground quartz mineral and a 10% mix of resins, polymers, and pigments. These are all important details that shape how and why you’ll benefit from quartz bathroom countertops. And with no further ado, here are those benefits:
A huge benefit of quartz bathroom countertops is its durability. This is said to be achieved through the engineering and manufacturing process, which makes quartz resistant to cracking, chipping, and scratching. Quartz is also non porous, meaning it doesn’t stain easily or be otherwise contaminated. Durability is important for your bathroom countertops, and with quartz, you’ll enjoy the benefit of one of the most durable countertop materials!
The maintenance of quartz bathroom countertops is an area in which the benefits are often understated. The same reasons that the durability of quartz benefits you blend into why the maintenance of quartz benefits you. Being nonporous, quartz reduces the amount of time, effort, and money required to adequately maintain it. To clean and sanitize quartz, all you need is soap, water, and a little respect for Mr. Miyagi’s principles. Short of any damage from accidents, well-maintained quartz is said to last a lifetime. In the event that may not be true, most quartz manufacturers offer 10 to 15 year warranties.
Quartz can, in certain circumstances, be as expensive as natural stone countertops. This isn’t usually the case, though. All things considered, including design value, durability, and maintenance (its other benefits), quartz is more cost-effective than natural stone countertops, and may sometimes even be less expensive than countertop materials other than stone. If you’re on a budget but don’t want to compromise, the cost of quartz is a huge benefit to you!
One of the primary benefits of quartz bathroom countertops is its aesthetic appeal. People usually prefer natural stone countertops, not just in their bathrooms but throughout their homes, because natural stone countertops are beautiful and add the appearance and feel of luxury. Unlike other natural stone countertops, the manufacturing process of quartz makes a wider range of colors and patterns available. This gives you the benefit of having access to more design choices while also being able to better integrate your bathroom countertops to your overall bathroom design goals.
