Is Caesarstone Quartz Right for Your Kitchen Countertops?
Your kitchen is the heartbeat of your home, the place where good meals are shared and memories are made. Though it’s not something most people think about, your kitchen countertops play a large role in how your kitchen looks and functions. They need to be durable enough to stand up to your toughest challenges, and aesthetically pleasing to make your kitchen a place where you enjoy spending time.
When you’re redoing your kitchen countertops, you have several options in materials. Stone has been trending hot in recent years, including granite, marble, and quartzite. Caesarstone Quartz is one to add to this list. Here’s why it’s a good fit for modern kitchens.
How Caesarstone Quartz is Made
Caesarstone Quartz is engineered using natural quartz, one of the hardest minerals in existence.
To create the material, the quartz aggregate (quartz, pigments, and polymers) are carefully inspected, then mixed together. The mixture is poured into molds to form slabs, which are compressed under a very high pressure. The slabs are also vibrated in a vacuum to eliminate all the air, thus creating a non-porous surface.
The slabs are then cured at 90℃ for 45 minutes, which lends to their unmatched strength and durability. Caesarstone puts each slab to the test to ensure color consistency and strength.
The Advantages of Caesarstone Quartz Countertops
Caesarstone pioneered quartz as a countertop material and uses an aggregate of 90% real quartz combined with pigments and polymer resins. The result is a durable, beautiful countertop that’s rich in functional benefits:
High Impact Resistance
Quartz is naturally hard, inherently making it ideal for kitchen counters. In fact, Caesarstone Quartz outperforms marble and granite when it comes to impact resistance.
Quartz is a non-porous surface, which means stains and colors won’t leave a lasting mark. In addition, it’s also highly resistant to chips, cracks, and scratches.
Multiple Design Possibilities
Caesarstone Quartz can easily be cut to fit your design. This includes adding curves and rounded edges, as well as odd shapes to fit irregular spaces. It’s also available in a wide array of colors to fit your unique aesthetics.
Because quartz is a non-porous surface, it doesn’t harbor bacteria and debris. This also means it doesn’t require sealing and special care like other countertop options. It’s relatively low maintenance and will look like new for years to come.
Quartz is naturally abundant all over the world. Caesarstone as a company is also invested in sustainability efforts, so you can feel good about your countertops and their little impact on the environment.
