Most people have two rooms in the home they want to upgrade or renovate. The first is typically the kitchen, and the second is the bathroom. For those first-time homeowners, starting with a bathroom remodel in their Minneapolis home may be a smaller project to become comfortable with the process.
One of the important choices in any bathroom remodel is the choice of specific materials. This will include the flooring, the vanity, tub, toilet, and shower or bath style, as well as the type of countertop. While marble and granite are often considered the more traditional choice, quartz countertops offer advantages that neither of other natural stone options can provide.
All quartz countertops are man-made, but they contain approximately 95% ground quartz, which is a naturally occurring mineral. The other five percent is a resin, which acts as a binder and a sealer. As such, these countertops and non-porous, which means they never need to be sealed.
In addition, quartz is very hard and durable. It can stand up to daily wear and tear, and it is very resistant to chips and cracks.
The resin acts as a permanent seal or blocking agent to prevent any moisture from entering the surface, something which can happen with granite or marble as the sealer wears off.
This means there is no risk of soap, chemicals, oils, beauty products, shaving cream or any other types of liquids from penetrating the surface to cause a stain. Maintenance is simply a wipe down with a microfiber cloth and warm water.
The colors, patterns, and styles of quartz countertops for Minneapolis bathrooms are extensive. This offers a greater variety to choose from, ensuring homeowners can find the perfect combination to top off their bathroom renovation with style.
