Either you’re doing up the kitchen from scratch, or you are in the process of overhauling the interiors of your existing kitchen. A countertop plays a vital role in both the looks and utility aspect in the kitchen. So which one do you go for? Granite or quartz? The following information might just clear your mind and make your decision simpler.
When you have a contemporary kitchen decoration with white or beige cabinetry and black granite countertops, the best thing would be to opt for iron corbels. Metal corbels look perfect when they are paired with a light colored background.
Depending on the degree of pressure and temperature, streaks and patterns are formed in the quartz crystals, giving it its characteristic appearance. Pure quartzite is usually white or gray in color. However, many a time, impurities such as deposits of iron, carbon, clay and other minerals get included in the mixture giving the quartzite different colors such as red, pink, orange, blue, etc.
While installing a countertop in your kitchen, it is wise to remember that once installed, the countertop becomes an integral feature of the house, and you must take every measure to ensure that it adds value to the existing look of the kitchen. The table on quartz vs granite countertops is for reference, and one must thoroughly evaluate the properties of both granite and quartz countertops, and also the monetary constraints and specific personal requirements before finally installing any one of them.
Corbels use almost the same functional area as brackets, the only difference between the two is the width; corbels being thicker than brackets. When you choose kitchen countertops with a heavy material like granite or marble, then corbels or brackets become an essential part of their installation.
Quartzite is a hard metamorphic rock that is obtained from sandstone and natural quartz. It is formed deep within the Earth’s crust when the extreme temperature and immense pressure from the movement of the tectonic plates causes sandstone to metamorphose, and its grains recrystallize to create a cement-like blend of quartzite crystals.
