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.
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.
