How to choose your quartz countertop

When you are considering quartz as the material for the countertops in your kitchen and bathroom, you must know that you are choosing to have both a durable and beautiful countertop. However, you also must know how to choose your quartz countertops and what to look for when choosing them in order for your home to have the best quality, durability, and aesthetics for its countertops with no regrets. Our quartz experts at Phoenix Quartz will tell you the most important details to have in mind and look out for before and during the process of choosing your quartz countertops. 

1- Know the final design you want for your kitchen or bathroom to decide what color, texture, and pattern your quartz countertop is going to be

Quartz countertops are available in various colors and patterns. This is why you need to do a thorough research before deciding which one is going to end up as your countertop so that you won’t be overwhelmed by the choices or you choose something that turns out to be the wrong quartz countertop for your kitchen space and looks.

You don’t need to worry, though, deciding on a color for the quartz countertop for your kitchen or bathroom is actually much easier than it may seem. It won’t take an interior designer to decide on the countertop; all you need is to be specific, know what you like, and what you prefer to have in your own home.

What is important to take into consideration is paying attention to the color tones of your cabinets and paint, or if you have tiles, to be able to choose a color for the countertops that complements the already existing colors in your kitchen. 

Browse Phoenix Quartz’s catalog to know the available colors to be able to form a general idea of what your new quartz countertop is going to look like.

2- Consider the proper thickness of the quartz countertop to match your needs

A slab of quartz comes in different thicknesses, for example Phoenix Quartz offers many thicknesses for countertops like the ½- inch, ¾- inch and 1½- inch thicknesses, in addition to the standard thickness which is 1¼-inch. This thickness is usually recommended and used one for countertops and bathroom solid surfaces like vanities. 

There are also other thicknesses available for different purposes like the 1 cm thickness slap of quartz that is used to for small corners like the ones that usually exist in a walk-in-shower or kitchens with smaller spaces.

3- Choose the right edging

This is an important detail to look out for. You need to know the different edges to choose the one that suits you best. The standard edges you will find at Phoenix Quartz are:

- Flat Polish: this usually is the best quartz countertop edging to go with contemporary designs.

- Bevel: This one has a slight angular edge that can be customized along with the width of the edge itself.

-  Quarter Round: The top edge of the Quarter Round edge has a radius which makes it perfect for a more traditional look.

- Half Bullnose: This is a perfect round edge that also goes well with traditional looking kitchens.

- Full Bullnose: The second type of Bullnose edge features a more round edge which makes quartz countertop look thinner.

No matter what your needs are for the quartz countertop you want in your kitchen, be sure that Phoenix Quartz will have it ready for you in the best quality and wide color selection that is guaranteed to include your color of choice.
