Granite Or Quartz?

Hello, friends!  Thank you for stopping by!  I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Father's Day. 

The age-old adage "A picture is worth a thousand words" is certainly true.  There are quite a few older homes in my community, ours being one of them, and several homes here have the same tile or comparable. It wasn't until I started writing my blog (and snapping pics) that I realized how extraordinarily dated my countertops looked. Yikes.  We are almost into the home stretch of our kitchen renovation, and we recently came to decision-making time!  Time to choose the countertops. We looked at a few options, and finally settled on quartz.  

Granite vs Quartz:

⚫Both vary in price. 
⚫Granite is 100% Natural, quartz is manufactured. 
⚫Being that granite is 100% natural, there can sometimes be flaws in the slab
⚫Quartz is fabricated, so there are likely no flaws
Granite requires sealing, quartz does not
⚫Quartz is nonporous and more resistant to bacterial growth, and also more mold resistant. 

I chose a grey quartz with sparkling flecks.  Here is a snap of the island. 


Quite a difference from my outdated tiles.

I hope this information has been helpful.  Thanks again for stopping in, keeping my fingers crossed we will finish soon!
