How Granite or Quartz Countertops Can Add Style To Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s not only the place where the food is, but also a place where the family gathers and entertaining friends and family happens. The kitchen plays a large role in your home, so why not design it to your liking? One way to add a bit of style is new countertops. This can completely transform your kitchen without doing a whole renovation. Here are a couple ways adding granite or quartz countertops can spice up the look for your kitchen. 

Appearance 
Granite and quartz countertops offer a smooth, clean and classic look to your kitchen, making them timeless. With a variety of colors and patterns to choose from, you’ll be sure to find a look to fit your kitchen perfectly. When choosing a granite or quartz countertop, consider the edges. Pencil edges are common in kitchens but if you have small children or a small kitchen, opt for rounded edges instead.

The Difference 

Granite is a natural rock mined from our mother earth. Quartz is actually created through a manufacturing process that mixes approximately 95 percent ground natural quartz with 5 percent polymer resins. It’s a manmade product but uses mostly quartz, a rock from nature.

Durable
When sealed properly, granite is resistant to staining. Quartz is the most resistant to staining and never needs sealing! The easy cleanup is what makes them both a popular choice for kitchens; the smooth surface makes it easy to wipe away crumbs and debris. Although they are not impervious to damage, granite and quartz are also quite strong and chip resistant. Have a hot pan and forgot to bring out a trivet? Setting it on the countertop without damage is possible with granite! But do not try the same with a quartz countertop as quartz is not heat resistant and can be damaged. Still, the durability of granite or quartz makes them perfect choice for everyone. From the everyday cook to the busy family household–granite or quartz make a great choice. 

New countertops can add something a bit extra to your kitchen creating a welcoming environment for anyone who steps foot in the room. For more information, contact the team at Holland Kitchens & Baths today to get started on renovating your dream kitchen.
