Granite was popular as a favorite kitchen countertop in the end of 20th century. Million homeowners all over the world believe that it is the lowest-maintenance countertop material. Also, they agreed that granite offers contemporary kitchen look. In fact, they are not absolutely true.
You may see gains on your granite countertop. You might also feel your countertop looks monotonous. So, what is the best now? The answer is quartz.
More Contemporary Style
Most of granite countertops are available in gold and busy patterned design. That’s why this kind of countertop material is not really suitable to the modern kitchen style. On the other hand, quartz countertops are launched as a simple pattered countertop material. It also allows you to have more varying countertop look. It is because quartz surface can be easily brushed with any colors.
Though granite serves a strong countertop material for your kitchen, you can get more benefits by using quartz. Quart is more flexible than granite. You may integrate your kitchen sink on quartz countertop. However, you wouldn’t integrate it with hard granite since granite is prone to crack.
As I mention before, both granite and quartz has almost equal strength. However, granite is porous that allows any dust to be left. It means you need more effort to keep your countertop clean. Quartz is in the opposite. It is not porous so that you can easily clan it. You have to simply swipe it with dry towel that it always looks new.
More Eco-Friendly Material
Granite indeed a natural material, but it needs to be modified with any chemicals to avoid staining. It means the waste of the chemicals might pollute the nature. Besides, it also exported from abroad that gives more carbon because of its shipping. Otherwise, quartz as a countertop material is more eco-friendly. It is made of 90% natural quartz material and 10% of polymer, color and other chemicals.
After all the facts above, still you need any considerations to replace your granite countertop with quartz one. Do the action now or you might find your kitchen out of dated!
