Quartz Bathroom Countertops
When designing a home, a bathroom is a room that you will use every day, multiple times, therefore making it quite important! Countertops are high use areas that need to be both durable and attractive. There are many different options when choosing which materials will be the perfect fit for the space. Some of these materials include: laminate, tile, wood, granite, solid surface or most popular engineered stone material of Quartz.
Nevertheless choosing the best material for your bathroom countertop often depends on your taste and the style you are going for. Below we cover Quartz countertop for bathroom vanities.
Quartz is quite similar in appearance to granite, while being 90% organic with only 10% being pigments and binders needed to create the counter. Some popular brands of quartz include Silestone, Caesarstone or Cambria. Keeping in mind that as a natural stone, process will be on the higher side compared to laminate or solid surface.
Some people would prefer quartz countertops because unlike granite and other natural stones, it is non-porous as it is binded by resin, making cleaning and maintenance easier. Additionally, because the surface is non-porous, it is very hygienic as there are no tiny pores for bacteria to thrive. Another advantage of quartz is its heat resistance – it doesn’t bend or warp even in direct contact with heat, and burn marks can be easily sanded off. Quartz is also lauded for its scratch and impact resistance – it is more durable than natural stones because of its binders.
Perhaps the most important take-away from selecting a quartz countertop would be its cost. It is a little less expensive than granite, but costs more than twice as much as solid surface. Depending on the brand, the average cost of quartz would be around $75 per square foot, up to $100 per square foot for the higher end quartz. Another factor to consider is that quartz is not a good outdoor material – prolonged exposure to sunlight and other natural elements would fade the color/pigments over time.
