Getting new countertops can make a big difference in the look and feel of your kitchen. As the most used and longest lasting surface in your kitchen, you’ll want to make sure you’re happy with your choice of counters. Prime Kitchen Cabinets has a wide array of beautiful choices to pick from, including one of our favourites - quartz countertops - in our Langley space.
A variety of natural quartz crystals are mined from the earth then ground into a dust. The dust is then mixed with resin, polymers, and pigments under intense heat to form solid slabs. Depending on how the quartz was ground, you’ll see different appearances - when ground finely, you’ll see a smoother look, which coarsely ground quartz gives a flecked appearance.
Here are just a few of the great qualities that come with quartz:
Eye-Catching and Design Friendly
Quartz countertops used to only come in a glossy finish but as technology moves forward, we are now able to offer them in three different finishes for you to choose from - matte, textured, or glossy. And, because they’re engineered in factories rather than cut from the earth, you can choose which pattern, finish, and colour best suits your style. The resin ensures that your countertop is more flexible than standard stone so it’s a lot easier to shape for different design elements. Resin also means that seams will be almost imperceptible so you don’t need large slabs to make up your counters.
Low-Maintenance and Durable
Harder than granite and stain and scratch resistant, quartz is a great family friendly option that can take on whatever you throw at, drop on, or spill on it. It’s also nonporous so it’s easier to clean and germ-resistant. Plus, you won’t have to deal with resealing it like other countertop materials.
