Quartz and Granite are two extremely durable and long lasting countertop options available to us. Both these elements are extremely luxurious and can make your kitchen look attractive. This makes it extremely difficult for you to choose between granite and quartz. You need to have a really sound knowledge of both these elements before choosing either of them for your kitchen. So, we are here to discuss some of the major factors that you must keep in mind while choosing the appropriate countertop for your kitchen.
Decide how much you would want to customize your stone
Comptoir quartz is basically a man-made substance, which is made from polymer and quartz resins. Because it is man-made, you can customise it as per your choice. Being the homeowner, you will have complete control over how your countertop is going to look. There are no chances of natural imperfections and slight discoloration and an even less granite. However, granite is a natural stone which is mined from the earth. It is then cut into slab. Each slab is completely unique. As a result, you will not be able to control the design as per your own choice.
Keep the maintenance factor in mind
Granite, being a natural stone, needs to be taken care of periodically. Otherwise, it will leave permanent stains making the surface dull. Granite requires a lot of maintenance. It can also easily crack or break from the external corners. Quartz, on the other hand, may get burnt easily. You should never replace a hot pan directly on the surface. Otherwise, it may leave behind a permanent ring on your kitchen counter. Quartz can also get scratched easily if you try cutting your items directly on the surface of your countertop. So, if you want a kitchen countertop which does not require a lot of maintenance, quartz is the option for you.
Consider the strength
Granite is heat resistant. It is also quite hard which makes it a very good option for rough kitchen users. You need not have to worry about cracking your countertop or even burning. Quartz, however, is not as strong as granite. However, if you can avoid placing heavy items on your kitchen countertop, you can use quartz without facing any kind of problems.
Consider your style
Are you looking for something sleek and elegant for your kitchen? Do you want your kitchen to look extremely stylish and organic? Well then both quartz and granite surfaces are extremely beautiful. Quartz is quite elegant and sophisticated as it is made of man-made stone. The patterns and colours are also quite uniform making it a perfect choice for people who love precision. However, granite is 100% natural. Every slab will be unique in its own way. The flashes of different minerals will add a natural look to your countertop.
