The countertop is the foundation of kitchen decor. It carries the burden of the tone and feel of the space.
Quartz is a high end alternative to granite; it is non-porous and does not need re-sealing. Quartz is being designed to resemble natural stones such as granite and marble. Manufacturers are creating them with veining, looking very much like the natural stone.
Another beautiful countertop material is called “solid surface”, and is made under the names of Avonite, Corian, and Swanstone. These materials have been around for 50 years and have shown their value in the kitchen countertop market. They are available in multiple colors and patterns, seams are virtually invisible and they are stain resistant.
