“Quartz countertops are actually made of quarried slabs of the natural stone, the new engineered material is actually created through a manufacturing process that mixes approximately 95 percent ground natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins.”
Thanks to its industrial origin, quartz counters are scratch and stain-resistant, and are non-porous, making them super-tough (and a much cleaner choice!). Mold, bacteria, mildew are not able to penetrate the surface. They also don’t require long-term maintenance, the way wood or natural stone requires re-sealing.
They still remain a popular choice for modern kitchen designs in 2018. Quartz is one of the most hygienic countertop options for homeowners and attractive for its durability. Caesarstone, Cambria, and Silestone are all coming out with some beautiful countertop colors for 2018.
Essentially the colors, shapes, patterns, and materials are what sets the tone and the atmosphere for your home. The simplest of color can make your home come to life. Here are some of the most popular color blends and combinations if you are looking to renovate your kitchen for the new year.
