Is Quartzite the Best Kitchen Countertop Material?

The decision-making process during a home renovation project can be daunting. It can be easy to become complacent during the process, but that’s the last thing you want to do! Every decision you make is extremely important as it’s bringing your vision to life. One of the many decisions you’ll need to make is the type of countertops you plan to install. From granite to quartz and marble to quartzite, the options are endless.

If you’ve been wondering if quartzite is the best kitchen countertop material, Brazilian Exotic Granite is here to walk you through the pros and cons so you can make a confident decision on your home’s countertops.

Advantages of Quartzite Countertops

Quartzite countertops are a great option for your home’s countertop — and for a good reason! Here are a few pros of installing quartzite countertops.


Your kitchen likely sees a lot of action. From cooking family feasts to having your children do their homework at the kitchen island, you need a countertop that can withstand whatever you throw its way. Quartzite countertops are very durable for a natural stone, meaning that you don’t have to worry about them showing their age and wearing down over time. Why install counters that you will need to stress over repairing small chips and cracks when you can install durable quartzite instead?

Low Maintenance

Managing a household is a hectic job. Whether you’re chasing after a toddler, cooking dinner for a family of five, or all the above, you likely have a seemingly never ending to-do list. The last thing you want is to add another chore to that list, such as resealing your countertops to keep them looking their best. With quartzite countertops, the maintenance process is easy! All you need to do is gently wipe them down every so often with a gentle cleanser or warm water and soap and they’ll continue looking good as new.

Neutral Colors

If you’re like most homeowners, you probably want your countertops to look great without being too bold or vibrant. Quartzite countertops come in a more neutral color palette that boasts blacks, whites, grays, browns, and beiges to offer a beautiful natural-looking countertop. Whether you’re hoping to create a serene and white backdrop for your kitchen with Mont Blanc quartzite or you’re looking for something moodier and bolder like Sandalus quartzite, there’s a perfect option for you.

UV Resistance

If your countertops are being installed in an outdoor living space or a kitchen with ample natural lighting, you may be worried about them fading from the sunlight. Luckily, quartzite countertops are resistant to UV rays which means that even if they receive direct, natural light day in and day out, they’ll continue looking their best without showing any signs of fading.

If you were questioning whether quartzite is right for your kitchen countertops, it’s clear that they make a great option for active families that crave beautiful, yet durable counters. Brazilian Exotic Granite offers quartzite countertops that can stand up to daily wear and tear while looking just as good as the day it was installed.
