But still both Quartz and Marble has their own pros and cons. We will see different features of both stones and then decide which one is better for us in present days and why. Let’s start:
Quartz Pros and Cons
If you are considering using quartz as countertops or flooring in your kitchens and bathroom. One thing you should certainly do is weigh up the pros and cons of having them installed. Whilst it is estimated that 91% of the money you invest in your kitchen will be returned in property value it is still money for you to spend – and that should require some thought (especially in this day and age).

If you like marble you can still use it but as we selected quartz as winner therefore we discuss it in more detail and see some of its benefits as kitchen counter-top and try to find more reasons that why we should use quartz over marble. Let’s start.
Why Quartz Countertops for Kitchens instead of Marble?
So why should you be looking at using quartz in your own kitchen designs instead of marble or granite?
Quartz is a stunning material in and of itself. It has a distinctive sparkle and luster that gives it that certain ‘something’ many people want for their kitchens. With a lot of quartz in one place, as would be the case with counter-tops.
It is also a very affordable material. Unlike granite or marble, which can be hard to find, transport and get the right ‘shine’ to, not to mention expensive. Because Quartz is so readily available and easy to work with it is possible to get quartz counter-tops for kitchens at far more affordable prices.
Hard and Durable:
It is also hard-wearing. Most quartz countertops for kitchens are in fact only 92% quartz. The rest are made up of resins and other materials directly intended to help firm up the countertop and ensure that you can still be using it in your kitchen decades from now and still not have it looking old and tired (even if we are)!
Stunning Focal Point for Kitchen:
There are few things that you can buy for your kitchen that are more stunning than quartz countertops. They provide an amazing focal point for the kitchen, at a price that most people can afford.
