When you decide that it is finally time to exit the workforce and enjoy your well-earned retirement, there are many inevitable changes that you will need to make in your day-to-day life.
While the baby boomer generation currently entering retirement is, by and large, a very robust demographic – perhaps the healthiest batch of retirees of all time, even – they still need to take steps to create a home and a lifestyle that will last them well into old age. Adopting cost-effective habits are a must – no matter how much you saved to enjoy a leisurely retirement, you still want to enjoy the security of having a healthy savings account.
This is why when many seniors look into countertops for the kitchen; they often choose engineered stone (also known as quartz countertops) such as Silestone or Caesarstone.
Quartz countertops do not need sealing at all and have very little maintenance requirements. Simple clean with warm water and mild soap is all that you need to keep your quartz countertops clean.
Uniform and Clean look
Since all brands of quartz countertops like Silestone, Caesarstone or DuPont Zodiaq are manufactured under controlled conditions, you do not find any natural imperfections or blemishes to bother about.
Generally, you can find engineered surfaces that run through every price range, with some color groups costing more than top-tier granite and others undercutting natural stone. It is possible to find decent quartz countertops at an affordable price range.
15 Year Warranty
Most of the popular quartz countertops come with a 15 year manufacturer warranty. You can enjoy your kitchen or bathroom countertops with peace of mind.
Popular engineered stone manufacturers select, train and approve reputable fabricators to fabricate and install their quartz surfaces.
