Because quartz is manufactured, it can come in any color and pattern imaginable. It can make a statement, be a neutral hue or be made to look like marble or granite.
Quartz is non-porous and difficult to stain.
High Abrasion Resistance
Quartz scores a 7 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. To put that in perspective, a diamond scores a 10. As you can see, quartz is a hard material that is unlikely to scratch, chip, or crack.
Since quartz can be manufactured in any color, you can find exactly the look you desire.
Quartz does not require regular maintenance (ex. sealing).
