Pros: Once known as ‘engineered stone’, quartz surfacing is 80% natural quartz stone mixed with resin and colorants. It is ultra-hard, durable, non-porous, and stain-resistant, and is available in many colors and patterns.

Cons: While it mimics natural materials, quartz doesn’t have the pattern variation or free-form grains of stone. You’ll need a professional to fix chips.

How To Clean It: Wipe up spills as they happen. Clean with a specialist cleaner designed for stone or quartz.
