Are you in the market for a new kitchen countertop? You might be surprised to learn that another material is overtaking granite as the most popular choice for kitchen countertop design trends. It’s not wood, stainless steel, or natural stone. Rather, quartz is currently the hot trend for your kitchen countertops.
* quartz is stronger, safe from scratches, and very resistant to cracking
* nonporous, meaning it’s highly stain resistant — safe from oils, liquid, and most home cleaning products
* never needs to be resealed like granite
* quartz natural stone needs no maintenance and is extremely difficult to damage
Many people forget that the countertop is a great element to add personality to your kitchen. Right now, the current trend is an extra thick countertop on the kitchen island, almost doubling the usual 1.25” thick counters to 2.25” thick. This is a great way to emphasize your countertop and make it the focal point of your kitchen.
Your kitchen is a big investment, and you don’t want to end up with a passed-trend look that you don’t enjoy. So any way you go, quartz or something else, make sure you like it and will continue to like it over the next several years.
