The Practicality of Choosing Quartz Countertops

You have several choices when it comes to choosing the material for your countertops. When you research different countertop materials you will find that there are pros and cons to all types of countertop materials both natural and man-made. Quartz countertops are becoming more and more popular in kitchen design and for a great reason! Quartz countertops at the Lake of the Ozarks are a manmade countertop but this allows the design to be extremely flexible when it comes to color choice and shape! Read on to learn why quartz countertops may be the most practical countertop solution for your lifestyle. 


Quartz is an extremely durable mineral. In fact, it’s one of the hardest minerals on earth. Quartz is also resistant to scratches and stains which makes it extremely practical in kitchens and bathrooms. Because quartz countertops are so durable, they prove to be cost-effective in the long run. It might seem like a bigger investment from the start, but having quartz countertops pays off.

Ease of Maintenance

Because quartz is a manmade surface and isn’t a natural stone, it does not require any sealing, oiling, or waxing. Quartz is also non-porous so they are easier to clean and bacteria can’t get inside. Now that’s a win-win in our books!

Quartz Looks Natural

Quartz is created in everything from solid colors to imitation granite and marble. Quartz is manmade so it can be transformed into many different colors and patterns. Having the look of granite or marble with the durability of quartz is a great option. This is just another reason why quartz is such a versatile countertop.


Quartz countertops come in a wide variety of colors. Because quartz is a manmade product, you are able to get the color you want. Granite and other natural stones are limited in colors because of the natural process through which it’s formed. Because quartz is available in so many different colors, it can easily be made into any shape or size and fit any style of décor.
