Ever since I bought my house, I dreamed of the day that I could redo my kitchen. My original kitchen was fine, but not the kitchen of my dreams! The biggest purchase I made in my remodel was new quartz countertops. They are one of the biggest purchases I have ever made (other than my actual house and car). I was so happy when they were installed and for the first few weeks I didn’t even want to use them.
Quartz is more stain resistant than granite or marble countertops because it is not a porous stone, but you still want to make sure that you are taking proper care of them to prevent damage. Quartz is actually made of ground up stone held together with binders. This gives you the look and feel of stone without it being an actual slab of stone. There are a few things to know about quartz countertops in order to keep them looking their best.
