Countertops are an essential part of the room design and layout of bathrooms and kitchens. Engineered quartz countertops are a popular choice as they are durable and can match almost any home design style.

There are many different types of materials that can be used for kitchen countertops. What’s important is that they provide you with a durable surface that is easy to clean.

Natural stone – like granite or marble – are considered good countertop materials and are sought after because the colors and patterns of natural stone are visually appealing.

However, one alternative to an all natural stone countertop that is rising in popularity is engineered quartz. Engineered quartz has many of the characteristics of natural stone – including the aesthetic appeal, but also has a few other properties that make it idea material for countertops.


Engineered quartz is a material that is created by mixing quartz with flexible resins and pigments. Quartz is a crystalline mineral; it is actually the most abundant mineral on earth. It is known for its durability and its heat resistance and the vast array of colors that it can come in.

Some varieties of quartz are considered semi-precious gemstones and are prized for their luster, sheen, and color. Examples of semi-precious gemstones that are varieties of quartz are amethysts, rose quartz, agates, jasper, tiger’s eye, and onyx.


Engineered quartz is made by mixing ground quartz and resins, plus pigments, to create slabs of material. Most engineered quartz slabs consist of 90 to 94 percent ground quartz with 6 to 10 percent resins.

Engineered quartz slabs are not made to order, the manufacturer creates slabs of set sizes and thickness. The slabs are made to fit a specific project requirement and are installed in pieces.
This material is easy to maintain and clean – which is an important characteristic of a kitchen or bathroom countertop. Any liquids that you might spill in the course of cooking or while going through your cleansing routine can be quickly mopped up by just wiping the surface of the quartz.

To maintain your engineered quartz countertop, you just have to wipe it down daily. Don’t use abrasive cleaners, just take a soft cloth and wipe the counter using warm water and soap. If there’s some staining, you can try using a nonabrasive cleaner.

Abrasive cleaners can scratch or wear down the finish of the countertop, but that’s the only real thing that can damage the engineered quartz. If you are careful with your engineered quartz countertop, the finish should last as long as the countertop does.
