Quartz Bar Tops

When it’s time to build or update your bar tops, quartz makes for a superior, strong, and non-porous surface. Unlike granite, it doesn’t require maintenance by sealing, but it has many of the same good looks and qualities.

Let’s face it - bar tops have to go through a lot of abuse and hard use. They need to resist water, handle sliding glassware, and not get stained from liquids and acidic substances.

You may have admired a quartz bar top in a commercial setting, and wondered if one would be feasible for use at home.

Here are some of the things you might want to know about if you’re planning out a new bar in your home or business.


Is Quartz Easy to Maintain?

Yes. The great thing about the manufacturing process for quartz is that it gives you a sealed surface. When the natural stone is bonded with the resins that give the counters a clean look and shine, it also gives it a non-porous finish.

The end result is a bar top that can be maintained with hot water and sponge for most clean-ups. Otherwise, non-abrasive cleaners, like those used for other stone surfaces, will work beautifully on your quartz counters.

You also won’t have to seal it periodically, as is recommended for granite bar tops.


Does Quartz Look Right for Bars?

Quartz countertops are made from 93% quartz, so they are already made of almost all natural stone. The engineered stone can be designed to look like any type of marble or granite you’ve been admiring.

That small amount of other materials lets the designers customize counter looks to look as natural as any granite. You’ll see many of the same veining, patterns, and colors that are available with granite countertops.

As with any technology, the process has gotten only better over the years, and the engineered stones you saw several years ago may look nothing like what we offer today.


Is a Quartz Bar Top Sanitary?

Quartz bar tops and counters are a great way to keep things hygienic and sanitary. They’re non-porous and antibacterial by virtue of their design and components.

When it’s important to keep your surfaces clean, you’ll find that quartz offers a lot of advantages. It resists liquids and repels stains - as well as the bacteria that go along with them.

Using acidic drink ingredients like juices, bitters, and other mixers can really take a toll on certain materials. Alcohol and sodas can stain butcher block and laminate rather easily. You won't have these worries with quartz.

Quartz is also naturally mold-resistant - a great quality in an environment that tends to stay wet or at least damp while you’re using it.


How Does Quartz Compare to Butcher Block?

Wood is often used for bar tops - but it can require more maintenance. Even with a heavy-duty finish, it can be susceptible to scratches and staining.

If you’re dealing with heavy items, lots of moisture, and hard objects like bottles and glass regularly, a surface like quartz will be more durable and require much, much less upkeep to maintain its good looks and naturally sanitary qualities.
