The Definition of Quartz Stone
Quartz stone is an engineered stone, which means it is a material that is made by man and not by nature. Even though quartz stone is engineered, it still provides the look of a natural stone, but includes the benefits of an engineered stone. In short, it is a win-win material.
All quartz stone is made by combining 90% ground quartz with 8-10% resin, polymer and pigment. The result of this combination of materials is a hard surface material, which can be compared to granite because of its looks and its properties.
Due to the fact that quartz stone is engineered, manufacturers are able to give a different look to quartz depending on the request of kitchen and bathroom supplier. The look of a quartz benchtop or countertop will depend on the manner in which the quartz is ground. For example, if the quartz is ground in a coarse manner, the benchtop will have a flecked appearance. If quartz stone is ground finely, the customer will get a benchtop with a smooth appearance.
More Durable than Granite and Marble
One of the biggest benefits of our Nova Stone Bathroom Vanities is their durability, especially when you consider the fact that quartz stone is more durable than granite or marble. Even though natural stone can look amazing as benchtops on bathroom vanities, they do have a tendency to get damaged more easily.
Bathroom vanities with quartz stone are more durable and this has everything to do with the nature and the properties of quartz stone. Since quartz stone is an engineered stone, manufacturers are able to eliminate some of the disadvantages of natural stones. For example, marble is a stone you need to apply a sealant on from time to time. Quartz stone does not require a sealant, since the material is more resistant to normal cleaning products and common types of damage. The same applies when you compare granite with quartz stone. While granite is a porous material that requires sealing from time to time, quartz stone is quite the opposite. Instead of having to spend more time and money on the maintenance of your benchtop.
Easy Maintenance for Nova Stone Vanities
Given the fact that all our Nova Stone range have a benchtop in quartz stone, customers do not have to worry about the maintenance of their new bathroom unit. Similar to the medium-density fibreboard that was used to create the drawers of our Nova Stone Vanities, the quartz stone benchtop ensures easy maintenance for all our customers.
Maintaining a quartz stone benchtop does not require any special knowledge, since you can quickly go over the benchtop with a damp cloth. If you should encounter some stains on the surface of the material, you can use a basic detergent to remove the stain from the surface.
Emulates the Appearance of Marble and Granite
Many customers like the look of natural stones such as marble or granite, but they dislike the amount of care and maintenance that goes into owning a bathroom vanity with a benchtop made from such a material. Fortunately, quartz stone is a material that can successfully emulate the appearance of marble and granite, giving you a bathroom vanity that looks and feels like natural stone whilst adding value to your home.
