If you are just now adding an island to your kitchen, you may be struggling with how to match it to your current countertops and kitchen design. A beautiful kitchen island can really bring a kitchen together, as well as provide a place to have snacks or quick meals, a more convenient cooking area and a central location for kids to grab lunches or snacks on their way to school or activities.
Quartz will not only give you the strength for a long-lasting investment, but this engineered countertop allows for more flexibility in design.
Should I Choose Quartz for My Kitchen Island?
Quartz is an excellent choice for a kitchen island. Quartz countertop is made from an industrial fabrication of quartz stone, resins and some other materials. Not only can you have a more customizable look, but quartz creation leads to it being non-porous. Whether the kids spill juice on the island or your water glass leaves a sweat ring, you’re in the clear. Waterproof quartz will hold its brilliance and wipe up clean.
Quartz’s waterproof nature also means you do not have to worry about bacteria infiltrating your quartz. Cooking can inevitably lead to the spread of bacteria and cross-contamination that even the best cleaning cannot always fix. Rest assured with quartz that bacteria won’t be lingering in after your countertop clean up.
Quartz is also quite durable, although the edges can chip, and it is not quite as heat-resistant as granite. However, you can round the edges to avoid chipping, and your quartz countertop should be fully resistant to normal kitchen wear and tear.
