With all of its natural elegance, it’s no wonder why marble countertops are such a hit. But the material does come with its share of maintenance and cost. Schloegel Designer Amy is here to talk about quartz alternatives that deliver the same look without the fuss.

Marble is absolutely beautiful, but it can be scratched, corroded and needs to be maintenanced annually. So the material, which can also come with a hefty price tag, may not be best for everyone. Luckily, quartz marble tops offer all the elegance, but without the price or maintenance.

countertop materials for kitchen and bathAmy suggests considering quartz offered by lines like Polar Stone, Caesarstone and Silestone. The quartz comes in a variety of colors and shades with veining that looks real. Of course, because no two pieces of natural marble is the same, Amy recognizes that some people will shy away from quartz because their patterns are repeated. That may be changing soon, though, as more and more suppliers are coming out with quartz colors that are less patterned and look even more like the real thing.
