Adding natural stone to your home? There are lots of great options to choose from, whether it’s for your kitchen countertops, bathroom countertops, or somewhere completely different in your home. One option that’s becoming more and more popular is quartz. Read on for some of the great reasons for choosing quartz for your home.

Aesthetic appeal

Like most stone countertop options, quartz looks great in any home, no matter what style you’re going for. Although quartz is an engineered material, it imitates natural stones like granite and marble very well, producing an appealing look in your kitchen or elsewhere. This also means that it’s appealing to buyers if you’re looking to sell, which could make it easier to sell or even drive up the price slightly.

Diverse styles

Another benefit of quartz being manmade is that it comes in a huge range of colors, patterns, and styles. Some natural stones, like granite, are already pretty diverse, but quartz goes a step further in this respect because it can be made in pretty much any hue possible. So, you can brighten up your kitchen or bathroom with interesting colors and patterns to suit your design style.


You might wonder if the manmade quartz can live up to the durability of true natural stone. Since quartz is mostly made up of natural stone, it has many of the properties of stone, making it tough and durable. The resin that is added to quartz during the engineering process, actually adds to it’s durability.
