Why Quartz Countertops are Great for Basement Kitchens and Bars

There’s nothing wrong with using your basement as a storage space and not much else, but if you’ve decided you’d like to transform your basement into a beautiful and functional living space that contains a kitchen or bar, you’ll want to make sure you choose the right materials for the job. When considering countertop choices for your basement bar or kitchen, opt for quartz.

Quartz Countertops

Why Quartz is Great for Basements

Quartz countertops are created using a man-made process composed of mostly of ground quartz mixed with small amounts of polymer resins. This combination of strong natural rock and durable resin makes these countertops extremely durable and low-maintenance. If you’re going to be using your basement kitchen or bar for parties and other social gatherings, you don’t want a countertop material that may stain, chip or scratch. Quartz surfaces are stain and scratch resistant and easily cleaned, which is one of the reasons they are so popular. Your basement kitchen or bar area is often used as a recreational place for family and friends to kick back and enjoy themselves; a quartz countertop will allow you quit stressing over scratches and stains so you can have fun too.

Match Your Basement’s Style With Silestone, Caesarstone or Viatera Quartz

In the past, quartz got a bad rap due to the lack of colors and designs available with this type of stone, but with the way quartz is manufactured today, you have tons of colors from which to choose. If you want a bright and airy basement, you can get gorgeous white or light gray quartz. If you’re looking to add a bar to your mancave of a basement, there are deeper, richer colors available as well. Choosing colors is especially fun if you plan to use your basement kitchen or bar as a sports bar. You can choose colors that match your favorite team to create a truly unique area.

Quartz countertops can come in matte or glossy finishes, which helps add to the aesthetic you’re aiming for in your basement design.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
