5 Reasons to Be Grateful for Your Quartz Countertops This Thanksgiving

Here we are, November once again. It’s the season for cooking. The season for turkey. The season for gratitude and appreciation of that which enriches our lives.

At this time of year, our kitchens take an elevated position in our household. They become more than just kitchens: they become the focus of our attention, the center of our household, and a place where we spend hours preparing for one of the most important meals of the year.

You may not often think about how important your countertops are, but at Thanksgiving, their importance becomes abundantly clear. If your countertops are made of quartz, this is a good time to reflect on how their performance contributes to your ability to make an outstanding Thanksgiving meal.

1. Durability

No kitchen material is harder, more scratch-resistant, and more stain-resistant than quartz. Made from crushed stone and resin, quartz needs no sealing in order to maintain its perfect, pristine surface.

Did your spouse spill the red wine, and the spill went unnoticed? Or maybe your teenager dragged a hot pot across your countertop?

More likely than not, your counters will be fine. Although you should wipe up stains as soon as possible, and you should avoid dragging hard or sharp materials across your counters, quartz can stand up to a range of accidents and long hours of use. After a Thanksgiving of cooking and celebrating, your quartz counters should be just as beautiful as they were before the meal.

2. Beauty

Enduring beauty is one of the reasons that homeowners choose quartz over other materials. Because it’s made from crushed stone, quartz can be shaped to take on the appearance of any natural countertop material, from marble to granite. It’s the perfect backdrop to bowls of stuffing, baking dishes filled with turkey, and casserole dishes brimming with macaroni and cheese.

3. Longevity

You’ll be enjoying your quartz countertops for many Thanksgivings into the future. Over time, your counters will become a part of your Thanksgiving tradition and Thanksgiving memories. Looking back on pictures of this year and years to come, quartz will be one of the unchanging features in your holiday photos.

4. Functionality

One of the great joys about quartz is how easy it is to clean. It’s non-porous and responds to a variety of non-abrasive cleaning products.

No more worries about applying poultices to unsightly stains after the meal is over – because quartz is highly stain resistant! Your countertops should be the lowest maintenance part of your Thanksgiving Day.

5. Value

Maybe you had to spend a little more money for quartz than you would have spent on another countertop stone, but you’ll be so happy you did. Quartz is the countertop material that gives back with every Thanksgiving that goes by.
