Unlike natural stone, quartz slabs must be manufactured. Typically, they mix about 94 percent of ground quartz with different resins and colors to create custom designed countertops. At Design Plus, we make sure our man-made quartz is sourced only from the top international manufacturers so we can ensure we are putting only the finest quality quartz countertops in your home.
There are many benefits of a quartz countertop:
1. QUARTZ IS TOUGH AND DURABLE
Quartz countertops are man-made slabs of stone, which means they are made up of about 90%quartz and 10% binding polymers and colored pigments. This high quartz content makes these countertops exceptionally hard and durable. The durability of this material makes it a great option for countertops where you will probably be banging down pots, pans, knives, cups, and plates. Quartz is tough and will be very resistant to scratches, chips, and stains. The durability of these countertops allows them last for many years. You’ll be able to enjoy your quartz countertops for years without worrying about ﬁxing chips, scratches, or cracks.
2. QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS ARE NONPOROUS
Because of how quartz countertops are engineered, it creates a nonporous surface. This means that there aren’t any holes or cracks where spills or liquids could soak in. This is one of the beneﬁts of quartz countertops for a few reasons. First of all, it means that the countertop is much more resistant to staining compared to porous countertops. A nonporous surface is also much more sanitary. Without any cracks or holes, it is much harder for bacteria, viruses, or other germs to become lodged into the counter. The smooth, nonporous surface also makes it much easier to wipe down and clean, which adds to the cleanliness of a quartz countertop as well.
3. EASY TO MAINTAIN
Countertops made of natural stone, like granite or concrete, must have a sealant or wax coated on top of it. One of the beneﬁts of quartz countertops is that they don’t need any sealant or wax coating. This means that quartz countertops require less maintenance compared to other countertop materials. And because quartz countertops are nonporous surfaces, they are super easy to clean and maintain. You won’t have to worry about getting stains out with an intense scrubbing session like you would with other countertop materials. Simply wipe them down with a cleaning wipe or with a cloth, soap, and water, and it will be all set.
4. QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS COME IN A WIDE STYLE VARIETY
We mentioned that quartz countertops are man-made, which is part of why they are so durable. Another one of the beneﬁts of quartz countertops being man-made is that they can be engineered to have a wide range of colors and aesthetics. Natural stone only comes in colors and aesthetics.

You can get anything from lime green to a natural brown to a dark black. You can also get either a matte or a shiny ﬁnish for quartz countertops. It would depend on the style and design you prefer for your home
5. UNIFORM IN LOOK AND FEEL
Because natural stone comes straight from Mother Nature, it often has color and texture variation. The color, pattern, or look of natural stone isn’t guaranteed to be uniform. While this might not bother some people, others prefer their countertops to look and feel the same throughout. And that’s one of the beneﬁts of quartz countertops. Since they are manufactured, quartz countertops look and feel uniform throughout the countertop. This will provide a consistent style and look of the countertop, which can add to your kitchen or bathroom’s design aesthetic.
