The bathroom is a unique place in your home. When you’re thinking about what countertop material to install there, it’s important to remember that you need to pick something that can withstand a higher amount of moisture and humidity.
Many people are interested in a luxurious look for their bathroom, but they also want a material that is functional and durable. At True Blue Surfaces, we have the perfect solution: quartz countertops.
Here are some reasons why you should choose quartz countertops for your bathroom:
They’re extremely tough.
When you install a quartz countertop, you can rest assured that it’s unlikely to chip, crack, or show any other signs of damage. It’s almost indestructible because it’s a man-made material that includes resins binding the particles together.
The presence of these resins gives quartz countertops an edge over other stone materials. Beyond that, they’re also pre-sealed and treated using special coating substances that boost their strength even further.
There are tons of options.
If you’re drawn to clean lines and crisp patterns, quartz countertops are your best bet. Since it’s a man-made material, its patterns are known for being more uniform and predictable than those of natural stones.
This uniformity makes quartz a very versatile option. It can look good in all styles of bathroom, no matter the interior. Whether you’re looking for a bright white surface, a smooth and dark surface, or a pleasing pattern, it’s likely that quartz has what you’re looking for in terms of design.
Unlike many natural stones, quartz is a nonporous material—meaning it never has to be sealed, and you don’t have to worry about liquid damage.
Quartz is also one of the best antibacterial surfaces so you don’t have to spend time worrying about germs and bacteria either.
The nonporous nature also means that staining quartz is nearly impossible. It doesn’t absorb any kind of moisture, which makes it a perfect option for the bathroom.
They’re cost effective.
When you install quartz countertops, you’re getting great value for the money you spend, especially considering the durability and quality. They are an affordable option, especially compared to some natural stone options, so if you’re renovating on a budget, quartz is a great option for you.
Imperfections are less likely.
When you look at a marble or granite slab up close, you might notice small imperfections that occur naturally—whether that’s fissures, cracks, pits, or color streaks. Such things can be expected in all kinds of natural stones.
Since quartz countertops are manufactured from the very beginning, this minimizes the chance for imperfections, and you’re more likely to end up with a flawless stone.
They’re low maintenance.
The bathroom probably requires the most cleaning out of any other room in the house. It’s important that this room is tidy and hygienic, so you’ll want a countertop that’s easy to clean. Quartz fits that bill perfectly.
Since they don’t have pores, they are always sanitary. Beyond that, you don’t need any special chemicals in order to get them clean. All you need is warm water, mild dish soap, and a soft cloth or soft sponge. Steer clear of harsh chemicals like bleach and anything that contains alkali, and you’ll be good to go.
We mentioned the uniformity of quartz earlier, but it’s important enough to bring it up again. Many people prefer the seamless, streamlined look of a consistent pattern in their bathroom, as it coincides with the motif they’ve chosen. If you’re working with natural stone options, you’ll be hard-pressed to find something that doesn’t have inconsistencies somewhere.
With quartz, you’ll never have that problem. The patterns on the slabs are aesthetically pleasing and offer a clean look for a smaller space.
