Quartz is a popular choice in countertops. Stain resistant and simple to clean, quartz countertops are a great natural stone material for the kitchen. Since it’s one of the hardest materials on the planet, it’s more durable than granite and for designers, options are available in a variety of colors. From clean white, vibrant red, and alluring green to grades with recycled glass or flecks of metal worked in, quartz comes in many colors and varieties. Certainly, as countertops go, there is no design style quartz can’t accommodate. Quartz countertops can be found with beautiful, natural marbling and the same veining typically seen in high-end, natural stone countertops.
