The Benefits of Quartz Countertops

The Benefits of Quartz Countertops

One of the most important design elements when renovating your kitchen is the type of countertop you choose. Although there many different options on the market, one popular material for countertops that we recommend considering is quartz. This material combines the beauty of natural stone, the durability of solid surface materials and the variety of colour and style available with laminate. Keep reading to learn more about why you should think about choosing quartz for your kitchen counters.

What are quartz countertops?

While you’d expect quartz countertops to be made of natural stone like granite counters, they’re actually man-made. Natural quartz and waste rock from quarries are crushed or pulverized and mixed with various polymer resins and pigments to create a very hard and resistant material. The end result is a slab that’s between 90 and 94 per cent quartz and other kinds of natural rock.

The look of a slab of quartz depends on how much the natural quartz was ground up and the colour of the resin it was mixed with. When the quartz is ground very finely, the final slab can be uniform in colour or mixed to mimic the look of natural stone. Sometimes materials like recycled glass, ceramic and silica are included in the mix to add a little extra sparkle or other interesting characteristics. The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to the appearance of quartz. No matter your style, you’ll be able to find a quartz counter to match.

Why quartz?

Quartz is one of the top choices for countertops in Vancouver because it combines beauty with durability. Because of the resin it’s made with, a quartz countertop is non-porous, meaning that it doesn’t need to be regularly sealed like granite or marble. It also resists stains, so there’s no need to worry if someone spills red wine on your new white counter. Furthermore, because the material is man-made and not natural stone, it’s a more predictable material to work with and will have few imperfections. 

When you renovate your kitchen with Century Cabinets & Countertops, you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of quartz countertops from well-known brands like Ceasarstone, Silestone, HanStone, Diresco, Zodiaq and CanStone. We have five locations in and around Vancouver to help you make the right choice. Call the location closest to you to start building your dream kitchen.

Selecting the Right Cabinet Hardware for Your Kitchen

Selecting the Right Cabinet Hardware for Your Kitchen

Once you’ve decided on the main design elements for your kitchen renovation, it’s time to think about the small things. The hardware you choose for your cabinets and drawers is what make a good design great. Century Cabinets and Countertops in Vancouver has some tips for making your kitchen pop.

Handles and Hinges

Best Quality Cabinets in Vancouver

The first detail you should think about is what you’ll use to open and close your cabinets and drawers. There are two basic types of handle seen in Vancouver kitchens, which can be mixed and matched to create all kinds of looks and styles: 

  1. Knobs: these attach to your cabinet or drawer with one screw and work best for cabinets, though they can also be used for smaller drawers. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours to match your style.
  2. Pulls: these are attached with two screws and come in a variety of lengths and finishes. They work well on drawers and cabinets and can be made to look modern or classic, depending on their length, shape and colour. One type of pull is a cup pull, which is enclosed on top and usually shaped like a half moon—a great choice if you’re going for a classic or shaker aesthetic. 

If you’re looking to keep your kitchen ultra modern and sleek, go for a spring mechanism. With no handle at all, it just takes a little push to open and close your cabinets. 

 If your cabinets have visible hinges, make sure to match their look and finish to the handles you’ve chosen. 

Matching Cabinet Hardware to Your Appliances

While it’s not necessary for the finish of your cabinet hardware to exactly match the look of your appliances or faucet, it’s important that they complement each other. You want to make sure everything looks like it belongs together. Don’t be afraid to mix metals—if your faucet has a brushed nickel finish and your appliances are stainless steel, think about an oil-rubbed bronze, aluminum or matte black finish for your hardware.

Organizers

You may already use a utensil insert, but there are other items available to save space and keep your kitchen organized. You can use mug hooks under your cabinets near your coffee maker or canisters for dry goods to keep your pantry organized. If you’re storing your dishes in a drawer instead of a cupboard, make sure you have peg organizers to keep them from shifting every time you open the drawer. Finding the right hooks, canisters and organizers can be a great way to personalize your kitchen and help create the aesthetic you’re going for.
