Quartz Countertop Prices

Quartz countertop prices range between $50 to $150 per square foot, depending on several variables. To help you understand what goes into the cost of quartz countertops, let’s look at a few key points.

  1. Quality of quartz countertops- The differences in cost between higher quality quartz countertops and lower quality can be pretty significant. So, are higher quality quartz countertops worth the price? First, know that quartz countertops are solid, regardless of the quality. Higher-quality quartz countertops are more resistant to scratches, cracks, and stains. High-quality quartz also is purer, meaning there is no smell, and there are lower levels of volatile organic compounds. Finally, lower-quality quartz may turn yellow and contain more than 12% resin. Overall, spending a little more on a quality quartz countertop is an investment that will pay off in the value of your home.
  2. How many and what types of quartz slabs do you need? – The layout of your countertops and whether or not you are trying to avoid seams all factor into the quartz countertop price. Fewer slabs of a quartz countertop cost less. Avoiding seams cost more. To keep the quartz countertop price within your budget, aim for larger slabs, the less pieces of quartz you need the less you will pay and you will avoid seams that come from
  3. Color of quartz countertops– Many manufacturers have standard quartz countertops in select colors, these often cost less than more unique or special-order colors and styles. If you are looking to stay on budget when choosing a quartz countertop, try to find a neutral color offered by the manufacturer and boost your kitchen’s design with smaller accents
  4. How many cutouts will you need in your quartz countertop? – Quartz countertop prices can increase significantly with more cutouts. Countertop cutouts are pieces of quartz that are removed for sinks or electrical outlets.
  5. What type of edge finishing do you want for your quartz countertop? –  When factoring in the cost of quartz countertops, keep in mind the edge you select. The more ornate and custom the edges, the more you will pay for a quartz countertop. Choosing a standard, straight edge for your quartz countertop will save money.
  6. Installation– Much of the quartz countertop price is the installation. You can expect to pay anywhere between $60 to $200 per square foot for quartz countertop installation. On average, the quartz countertop installation price is about $130 per square foot.
