Quartz Bathrooms

Your bathrooms may have less countertop space that your kitchen, but choosing the right type of material for them can make a really dramatic difference in how the space looks.

Quartz has a number of qualities that make it perfect for the bathroom environment, whether it be for your vanity or shower surround.

Although they’re sometimes known as “engineered stone”, they’re actually made of 93% quartzite - which has been mixed with resin and pigment and put under extreme pressure.

The final result is a hard surface that is even tougher than granite - and one that comes in a wide variety of looks. If you’re on the fence about the type of countertop look you want in your bathroom, be sure to browse quartz samples. We've compiled some common questions about quartz in the bathroom.


Why is Quartz So Great in Bathrooms?

Quartz is already sealed, stays sealed, and will maintain its finish with little care. In a moist environment and in spots that tend to stay wet - like around sinks and faucets, it remains waterproof and will cut down on stains from water and everyday items.

Cosmetics, lotions, oils and other substances can stain certain natural materials if not properly sealed. Quartz is a non-porous surface, essentially eliminating any chance of staining.


Does Quartz Look Like Granite?

The process of manufacturing quartz makes them incredibly diverse in their colors and patterns. Manufacturers can make adjustments in the design - and that means countertops can look like almost any color of granite - same with patterns.

On the other hand, it also opens up the possibility to add other colors and looks - so if you’re looking for something that has all the great qualities of natural stone for your bathroom, but want a slightly different style, quartz can also be the answer.

If you're looking for a solid color surface for a cleaner, more modern look, there are many solid color options to choose from with quartz.


Is Quartz Practical for Kids Bathrooms?

Stands up to abuse? Won't stain when the vanity becomes your child's blank canvas for drawing? If that sounds to you like a bathroom that kids use, you’re not alone!

The materials used in quartz make them ideal for holding up to standing water and tough use - and they’ll help keep your bathrooms hygienic and sanitary.

It’s easy to clean quartz vanity tops with just warm water and a sponge for small spills. For any other cleaning, a non-abrasive cleaner will work fine - you can choose from several green options that will cut down on the use of chemicals around your children.

They’ll find it easy to keep up with, too. You might be interested in some of the more colorful options that are available with quartz for a more fun approach to a kid’s bathroom.


Will I Need to Seal Quartz?

The wonderful thing about Quartz countertops is that they’re already sealed and will never require any resealing treatment. The materials that are used not only make for a very strong product, they also make it non-porous.

This attribute means you’ll never have to worry about your new vanity top losing its ability to shed water and stains, even under the conditions that involve a lot of water, humidity, and frequent cleaning.
