Remember the days when everyone had Formica kitchen counters? After the Formica craze, Granite became the coveted countertop, but these days Quartz is quickly becoming the most popular option for kitchen counters.
While Granite countertops are natural stone cut into individual slabs, Quartz countertops are made of crushed quartz mixed with resin in a ratio of 93% quartz to 7% resin. This design and manufacturing process means Quartz countertops are just as strong as Granite but come in a vast array of colors and patterns. They are also more flexible and thus, easier to install.
This flexibility means that Quartz can be used on larger vertical surfaces like backsplashes and even shower enclosures without the all-too-visible seams of natural stone. Whether you choose Granite or Quartz, they will both add beauty and style to your kitchen.
