Home Depot: Quartz and Corian Countertops
Choosing the right countertop for your kitchen can be daunting given the many styles and material options. Here's the lowdown on two of our favorite countertop materials -- quartz and Corian -- to help you make the choice that best suits your home and lifestyle.
Quartz vs. Granite
Trying to decide between quartz and its similar-looking counterpart, granite? Consider that, unlike granite, engineered quartz has a uniform appearance and a nonporous surface that holds up well against heat and stains, and quartz costs about the same as midrange granite. Plus, granite needs to be sealed a few times per year, while quartz does not.
Advantages of Quartz
Martha Stewart Living™ by Viatera quartz countertops, available exclusively at The Home Depot, feature beautiful veining and rich depth of color, designed to coordinate well with a variety of MSL finishes. Some of the hardest, most impervious countertops available, they also resist heat, scratches, cracks, and stains, making them exceptionally easy to maintain.
Advantages of Corian
Martha Stewart Living™ countertops by Corian® are rich, complex, and come in a variety of custom colors. Corian is also easy to care for: Spills do not permeate the surface and scratches can be easily removed to restore the countertop to its original beauty.
Adding decorative edges to your countertops can be an easy, cost-effective way to customize your kitchen’s look.
