An educated homeowner who has researched has learned that one of the absolute best choices for their kitchen and bathroom countertops is quartz.

If you want to change something in the kitchen, start with the countertops. Quartz countertops have become very popular between both professional chefs and amateur cooks all around the world.

The cost of quartz vs. granite is that they typically are in the same price range; most variation in pricing is based on the quality of the stone.

Quartz is always much less expensive than marble, but it is more expensive than solid surface.

Because quartz countertops are made with a blend of stone and resin, the resulting surface is very hard like granite, but also glossy. Quartz countertops are made of 93% natural quartz granules and 7% resins and colorants. Very contemporary and attractive look!
