Bev's Keen Eye on Design

August 2016: Crazy for Quartz

Quartz countertops have quickly taken over the design industry. Why do we designers love quartz so much? Durability will likely be the number one reason. Quartz is one of the strongest materials in the world, making it extremely durable and easy to maintain. Designers want to leave their clients with a design that will last them a lifetime; with quartz you can have peace of mind that it will. However, not all quartz slabs are made the same. It is important to learn about the manufacturer that is making the product you choose. The higher the percentage of actual quartz rocks to binding resins makes a huge difference in the durability and quality of your countertops. A strong percentage ratio is 93% quartz and 7% binding resins. After researching the quality of the product, you can have fun choosing from a huge range of colors and patterns to best suit your design!  Here are some of my own projects with a variety of colors and styles of quartz countertops:
