QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS ARE NOW MORE POPULAR THAN GRANITE COUNTERTOPS IN THE KITCHEN

Granite was the only choice for home owners when they fantasizing about their dream kitchen countertops.

With their natural beauty and fantastic resale value, no doubt that granite countertops occupied the top position of home design wish lists. However, now more designers are turning to another material for kitchen: quartz.

Regarding to the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) most recent trends report,

cites popularity with quartz as on the rise, particularly within the last five years, while interest in granite has declined.

More than 450 designers participated in the organization's 2016 Design Trends Survey, which has been tracking trends in kitchen and bath design every year since 2010.

In 2010, 73% of responding members reported using quartz in their kitchen projects. By 2015, that number rose 16 points to 89%, with 67% expecting to do more projects involving quartz in 2016.

On the other hand, homeowners themselves reported favoring granite countertops with 41% choosing the material for their kitchen renovation projects in 2016, according to Statista, one of the Internet's leading statistics companies. Quartz, however, wasn't far behind at 40%.
