It wasn’t too long ago that granite and marble were the only two stone countertops that Nashville area homeowners wanted used in their home remodels. That trend is slowly starting to turn towards quartz countertops, and for a few good reasons – five of them!
Let’s look at why more homeowners in Nashville are moving towards quartz countertops so that you can understand the trend, and possibly bring it into your design.
Five reasons to choose quartz countertops
1. Low maintenance
Quartz countertops do not need to be sealed, will not stain, and can have any number of cleaning products used on it. Quartz is a non-porous material that is manufactured, and it is made to act exactly this way. You’ll save time and money as you don’t have to buy and use sealer over and over like you do with granite and marble.
2. How durable quartz countertops are
If you thought your granite was durable, wait until you try quartz countertops! Not only will it not stain, as mentioned above, but it is scratch resistant – making it perfect for cutting vegetables on. If you cut things in your kitchen, which I’m willing to bet everyone in Nashville does, quartz can be the best choice for durability alone.
3. Quartz countertops have a more uniform look
Quartz is made to look a certain way, meaning that the homeowner in Nashville who chooses it can plan for paint and other color choices well in advance. This can save time during the design process as you don’t have to wait for your slab to be delivered to know for certain how it will look.
4. Quartz countertops are now sexy
When quartz countertops were first introduced they were bland. Boring. Lackluster. No one in Nashville saw them and went “Wow! That looks interesting enough to install in my home!” You can now get the same level of excitement from quartz countertops with great patterns and marbling as you can with other stones.
5. The cost of quartz countertops is lower than you think
The average cost of new quartz countertops is roughly the same as mid-level granite. This can differ depending on the design and current market fluctuations, but you’re getting all of the above points for roughly the same price as any other material you could choose.
