Quartz Countertops in Elk Grove Village, IL and the Northwest Suburbs

Quartz countertops are a popular choice for both the bathroom and the kitchen, appealing to homeowners who want the appearance of natural stone surfaces without the required maintenance. If you're planning a remodel, these are just a few of the reasons you should consider quartz countertops from OHi.

Advantages of Quartz Countertops

Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on Earth, which makes it a great choice if you need countertop surfaces that can stand up to wear and tear. Unlike natural stone countertops, however, quartz models are factory engineered from 94 percent quartz combined with polyester resin and pigments. This allows you to choose from a diverse range of colors and styles, including reds, greens, creams, and neutrals with sparkles, marbling, or veining. Polished, matte, and textured finishes are available.

Quartz countertops are non-porous and resist scratches and stains. Unlike granite, which needs to be sealed once a year, quartz is a low-maintenance option that does not require resealing. Just wipe up stains immediately and avoid harsh chemicals. Also, although this surface resists heat and scorching, you should use a hot pad for dishes straight out of the oven.

If you're concerned about your environmental impact, quartz countertops will keep you living green. They are made from recycled materials rather than new raw materials, making them a sustainable choice.

Uses for Quartz in the Bathroom and Kitchen

Because of the variety of colors and finishes, quartz can fit with any kitchen or bathroom aesthetic. With a lifespan of 15 years or more, these counters are suitable for a major remodeling investment at an affordable price.

Whether you use quartz in the kitchen, bathroom, or both, soapy water is all you need to clean these surfaces. A gentle cleanser can be used to remove stains. Because these rooms are moist, quartz is a good option because it is naturally antimicrobial, so it resists mold, mildew, and bacterial growth.

Quartz comes in large slabs that allow you to outfit expansive countertops and islands without unsightly seams. It's also flexible enough to be molded around sinks and other fixtures.
