Watching one hour of the HGTV channel is going to give you dozens—if not hundreds—of home decor and renovation ideas. From a crazy fun treehouse in the backyard to a complete overhaul of the front deck to increase curb appeal. But it seems that once you go inside, countertops are almost always the first topic of conversation. This has become a popular conversation starter: quartzite countertops in Baton Rouge.

A Change of Countertop

Countertops have a huge impact on the look and feel of your bathroom or kitchen. Deciding to update them can completely transform a room—even without touching anything else. If new countertops are creeping up higher on your home to-do list, there’s a lot to consider. You’ll first have to decide what material is best for you and your family. Price, durability, and aesthetics should all play a role in this decision. Granite is a common choice, but maybe you want something more modern. And you’ve seen the industrial-chic look of concrete, but don’t think it’ll match your style. It could be time to give quartzite a chance to update your kitchen or freshen up your powder room.  

3 Reasons to Consider Quartzite

All-natural. Quartzite is a metamorphic rock, which means it was created by intense heat and pressure deep underground. To use it as your countertop, it’s mined and cut into slabs that are later custom-fitted to your cabinetry. Different minerals form the beautiful streaks of color in quartzite and give it a marble-like pattern. There’s no pouring and no added pigments in the final product. When you have a quartzite countertop you’re seeing the stone as mother nature made it (just cut to fit and shined up a bit).

Beautiful. If you entertain often, quartzite is sure to impress your guests. It combines the toughness of granite with the ethereal beauty of marble. Stone professionals will cut your countertops from an existing slab you select yourself. This means you’ll know exactly what texture and pattern will be gracing your home. In the kitchen, quartzite is a beautiful, Instagram-worthy backdrop for all your culinary creations. In the bathroom, it creates a spa-like atmosphere to reinvigorate and inspire your morning routine.

Timeless. Quartzite countertops in your kitchen or bathroom will last you for years. Its natural colors are less likely to be dated in a few years. It’s generally white or gray so it can complement almost any kitchen color scheme. Also, quartzite is durable—it’s even harder than granite! Getting it sealed on a regular basis ensures its longevity and makes clean-up a breeze.
