There‘s a lot to love about open shelving and the only disadvantages are either related to personal style preferences or the lack of privacy. But let’s focus on the pros first. The biggest advantage of all when you have open shelves in the kitchen is the fact that you can easily access everything that’s on them. You can see everything at a glance and quickly grab the item you need.
For everyday care, a mild dish detergent and soft cloth are really all you need. Glass cleaner, a degreaser, Goo Gone, a nonabrasive sponge and a plastic putty knife are also helpful tools, according to Bob Vila. Although quartz resists stains from liquids like wine, vinegar, tea, lemon juice, and soda, or fruits and vegetables, it's still important to wipe spills up right away, before they dry. If you have a dried spill or heavy stain, try using a glass or surface cleaner, a nonabrasive sponge. Keep a plastic putty knife handy to gently scrape off gum, food, nail polish, paint, or other messes that harden as they dry. For tougher grease clean-up, use a degreaser that will help loosen the grease from the surface. Follow the cleanser manufacturer`s instructions for use. Should your quartz countertop be marred by a permanent marker, use a soft cloth and a product like Goo Gone to safely remove the mark. Rinse well. Quartz doesn't need to be sealed, but an overall deep cleaning is also recommended. experts also recommend a periodic overall deeper general cleaning. To do this, spray a a nonabrasive surface cleaner over the entire countertop and let it sit for 10 minutes. Wipe it up with a soft sponge.
Granite is heavy and quartz can be even heavier. Professional installation is highly recommended for quartz countertops in kitchens for a long list of reasons that go beyond its weight. They are a big investment and installers should be certified to mount the specific brand of quartz you purchase. Many countertops come with a warranty, but often if installed by a certified professional. Even though some home stores sell the material as a DIY, most experts don`t recommend going it alone – except for those who sell it that way. Quartz is a wonderful option for those who want the look of stone with less maintenance hassle. Or, if you want the durability of quartz in a brighty hued version, quartz can do that too. Just make sure you budget appropriately for this beautiful and durable kitchen countertop option.
