Whether you are looking to remodel your kitchen, bath, mudroom or any counter surface, we have a wide range of options. We are often asked what the differences and similarities are between Quartz and Quartzite. So, we’ve compiled a list to help explain and guide you toward making a choice that will best suit you and your families needs.
In shades of white and grey, Quartzite can often have a hints of blue, or even green or a light tan brown due to trace minerals in the material. However, it’s the white and grey swirls which have made it such a popular option. Quartzite is harder than granite, but since it is often mislabeled, the consumer should be aware and only purchase from the most reputable of dealers. It needs to be regularly sealed, a fact that should be taken into consideration upon purchase.
While Quartz is a man-made stone, it holds its own in the sales arena, since it offers both light and dark shades, swirled or grained, and is non-porous. Customers love Quartz, not only for the options it provides, but also because it does not require sealing. At 93% quartz and 7% resin, the composite can be created into hundreds of color and style options. When customers choose Quartz, they’re picking a luxury product with tremendous durability and low maintenance. It comes in a wide variety of textures, as well, which reflect or absorb the light accordingly. The one caveat of quartz is that heat, such as that from a hot piece of cookware, will discolor it. Because technology brings the beauty and look of man-made products ever closer to that of natural stone, it becomes harder and harder for the unsophisticated eye to discern one from the other.
If you have a home, business or rental property in the Connecticut or New York and are considering upgrading with Quartz, Quartzite, Granite or Marble, please gives us call us at 203-446-5050. We are more than happy to provide a complimentary consultation.
Selecting new countertops for your kitchen or bathroom can be a challenging task... there are many variables to consider (e.g. material, cost, slab size, colors, availability and source).
Granite is still a highly sought-after natural material, especially popular in high-traffic rooms such as the kitchen and bath. Using granite for your counters is a solid investment as it stands the test of time in both appearance and durability.
That being said, quartz is now the most popular and requested countertop material. Quartz is known for being structurally more durable in comparison to other stones, including granite and marble. With low maintenance, high durability and endless color options, quartz offers a tempting and stylish alternative to natural stone. Anatolia offers a remarkable line of Caesarstone, which is perfect for a variety of kitchen + bathroom applications.
