Quintessential Quartz

Countertop Concepts cabinets/countertop project. Quartz countertops

Quartz countertops as we know them are produced by a number of manufacturers, the most popular being Silestone, Cambria, and Ceasarstone. Quartz is comprised of 90% ground quartz, and 10% resins, polymers, and pigments. Quartz has risen in popularity as the trend in home design has shifted to lighter and lighter colors. This trend in kitchen design has reached Wichita, KS and the surrounding area in full force, particularly the whites with grey veining.

When choosing a Quartz, color and company are key. While Cambria boasts a plethora of colors, they may not be as affordable as the options provided by Silestone (made by Cosentino). Silestone has proven itself to be a first class product that offers many unique patterns and finishes. To see samples of either Silestone or Cambria, visit our showroom at 6680 S Oliver just south of Wichita, KS on the north end of Derby, KS.

Quartz is non-porous, providing superior stain protection. The resin in Quartz makes it extremely durable, limiting chipping and scratching, but making it susceptible to heat. Countertop Concepts take pride in its ability to install Quartz, providing our customers with unmatched craftsmanship.
