When you’re looking for a way to give your kitchen a fresh new look, there’s no better way to make a dramatic change than to update your countertops. Depending on the type of counters already present in your Viera, FL, home, you may be able to completely revamp the look of your kitchen simply by swapping the old tops for new ones. Here are some factors to consider when choosing between granite and quartz to make sure you get the best countertops for your home.
You may prefer quartz because it allows for more customization in its appearance. Since granite results from the cooling and solidifying of molten material, there’s little room for customizing its look in your countertops. If you want a more natural look, granite is often the preferred choice, while those who prefer customization typically go with quartz.
You probably want to upgrade your countertops without breaking the bank. Because of the installation process, you can do some of the preliminary work for granite countertops yourself, which can provide some savings.
Since quartz is more customizable, the price range on quartz countertops can vary. However, due to the weight of quartz, you will need to budget for a professional installer who can confirm that your home is structurally capable of supporting quartz countertops.
Granite countertops can require daily cleaning with soap and water or an approved household cleaner. Conversely, quartz only requires cleaning if you spill something on the surface. If you don’t want to spend as much time cleaning your counters, quartz is an easier option.
