With the shelter in place orders that came with 2020, we all had a heightened awareness of the cleanliness of our homes!
This year, hygiene will continue to be a main concern, especially in germ-prone and high-traffic areas like bathrooms, putting an emphasis on easy-to-clean surfaces and anti-microbial fixtures.
Because quartz is one of the hardest natural materials, resisting scratches and stains, and is easy to maintain, it’s a top choice for homeowners this year especially. Quartz can easily accommodate all the frequent cleaning that homeowners are doing now. Plus, it’s non-porous, which means it can’t harbor as much bacteria as more porous materials. This is a vital consideration in a room that is constantly being barraged by moisture and water.
Quartz has a contemporary feel with sleek profiles and little to no seams, which makes them that much easier to maintain. Lighter finishes are all the rage, showcasing the warmth of today’s modern bathrooms. That’s because there’s a move toward organic trends that feature an eclectic mix of earthy elements. Quartz counters paired with natural wood is one example of this.
