Quartz is most certainly a material which is on everyone’s mind when it comes to kitchen and household projects – but more often than not, its main usage is in kitchen countertops. Are there more uses to this great material around one’s home, or is it a modern one-trick pony?
Nowadays, quartz has a handful of other uses around the house.
It’s mainly used because it’s a very durable material, which is still fairly easy to install and handle and has a lot of unique patterns which look wonderful both in practical and decorative uses. If you need some ideas, here are places in which you can use quartz:
- Furniture units/accents. Quartz can be used as a touch of luxury and uniqueness for things like TV stands or fireplaces. For extra points, you can have a piece of furniture made entirely out of quartz – for a truly special look.
- Bathroom surrounds. While quartz is already used in bathroom vanities, it can be upgraded to bathroom surrounds as well. The larger panel sizes mean a near seamless look can be achieved with almost no grout lines, also making quartz easier to clean and care for in the bathroom.
- If you have some leftover quartz pieces after building your countertops, these can be used to create a few shelves around the kitchen. Not only will they look great with the countertop, they will also be very sturdy and easy to clean.
- Quartz Window sills. Resistant, easy to clean and almost impossible to scratch, no matter what you place there.
