Marble and granite have been the material of choice for kitchens and bathrooms for decades — however, times have changed. The most sought-after material is now Quartz. Quartz is made from one of the hardest minerals on earth and considered the most durable option for kitchens + bathrooms.
Unlike high-maintenance granite and marble (they're beautiful but fragile!), quartz is naturally stain repellent and impervious to acidic foods. Translation: you don't have to worry about your countertops looking trashed from normal wear and tear. Quartz does not require sealing or waxing, whereas granite and marble require at least yearly treatments.
The biggest reason for the recent surge in quartz popularity can likely be traced to advances in the man-made stone's aesthetic.
Manufacturers have figured out how to remove the overly flecked and unnaturally uniform patterns and create the organic-looking swirls and variations of natural stone. We think the quartz here to stay.
