Why Quartzite Kitchen Countertops are All the Rage

Quartzite has been among the most popular materials used for kitchen countertops of late, and for good reason. This stone has many desirable properties that make it ideal for just about any kitchen. If you’re unfamiliar with its benefits, here are just a few reasons why it is so popular:

Its Striking Appearance

Quartzite’s appeal is at least partially aesthetic. The stone has a one-of-a-kind color palette that features many variations of white and gray. These earthy tones give it a visual appeal that sets it apart from other countertop materials. And due to the wide variety of natural patterns, Quartzite offers tremendous versatility, making it perfect for kitchens of all different styles.

Its Durability

It seems the durability of quartzite has been a pretty big selling point for those who have invested in it for their kitchens. Compared to other countertops materials, it’s less likely to break or chip, while also being denser. Adding to its long-lasting nature is its resistance to etching. Over the course of its lifetime, your countertop will come in contact with a lot of substances. Some, like lemon juice, are acidic and can permanently change the makeup of stones that contain calcium carbonate, thus altering the appearance of the stone as well. However, this will never be an issue with quartzite as it does not etch.

The Lack of Maintenance

The appeal of a quartzite countertop to customers goes beyond just the pleasing appearance and the long-lasting nature of the stone. It’s also the lack of maintenance that convinces people to make the investment. Once a quartzite countertop is sealed, you can wash it with exclusively soap and water. In fact, using cleans that contain too many chemicals can harm the seal.
