What Do Quartz Countertops Look Like
Rather than being quarried natural stone slabs like granite, quartz countertops are a composite of quartz chips or dust and resin. Countertops with quartz chips often have an attractive speckled appearance because the quartz is visible as it’s suspended in the resin. In contrast, those engineered with quartz dust exhibit no speckling.
These two engineering methods allow for almost limitless color and style choices in quartz countertops, which gives quartz countertops an advantage over natural stone countertops like granite and marble. Unlike natural stone, quartz countertops lend themselves to customization so that they will match your vision as well as your backsplash, cabinets, or flooring.
