Unlike granite, quartz is a man-made stone, created from 90% quartz stone. This leaves your quartz countertops almost completely nonporous. This is so important for multiple reasons, one being it’s safer for your family. Nonporous means it doesn’t house any moisture or leftover residue, meaning raw food and bacteria won’t seep into the pours and get you or your family sick, and it’s easy to clean!
Quartz is harder than granite, making it more durable and a great work space for your kitchen. Since these countertops are made from 90% hard minerals, knives and other sharp materials stand no chance. Its highly unlikely quartz would ever scratch even in the most severe situation. It’s by far one of the most durable kitchens surfaces you can get!

Most of the time when people think of quartz, they think of a smooth/shiny finish, but the possibilities for quartz countertops are endless. Since quartz countertops are man-made, almost any color and pigmentation can be brought out in the stone, making quartz a perfect option for any kitchen update or remodel. With this being said, there are also little to no imperfections in quartz.
