Can Quartz Countertops Look Like Marble?

Customers often ask, “Is it possible for quartz countertops to look like marble?”

The answer is a resounding “Yes!” Some of today’s quartz countertops really do replicate the gorgeous marble aesthetic. Add these visually striking countertops to your kitchen, and you will find you gravitate toward this part of your home even when you don’t have anything to cook!

Select Your Kitchen Countertop Material With Care

Homeowners have a seemingly endless number of options when it comes to counters. From quartz to marble, concrete, granite, soapstone and beyond, there is plenty to choose from.

Each of these countertop options has unique strengths and weaknesses. What matters most, though, is aesthetics and durability.

Quartz Sink Run
Quartz and marble are commonly favored for their beauty as they are light in hue with grey tones. These two colors work perfectly together for kitchen countertops. Opt for quartz countertops that look like marble and you will have the veining of stone without the clutter presented in other patterns.

Aside from visual appeal, quartz countertops that look like marble are also favored for their longevity and maintenance. Unlike marble, quartz is not porous and is, therefore, more resistant to stains and scratches.

You will not have to wipe down spilled liquid immediately after it contacts your quartz countertops as they are awfully difficult to stain. This is the aesthetically pleasing low maintenance kitchen countertop your family needs.

And, of course, quartz is a more affordable option than marble.

About Quartz

Quartz is an engineered stone, meaning it is possible to achieve the widely-coveted veining as presented in natural stone. Quartz is visually appealing as well as durable. Plus, with quartz counters, you will not have to worry about applying an annual seal as required by granite.
