Quartzite and quartz are two popular materials used in interior design and architecture, each with their own unique characteristics and benefits. Although often confused, these two materials have significant differences in their uses.
Quartzite is a natural stone that forms from sandstone and quartz fused under heat and pressure. It is an extremely durable stone and resistant to stains, scratches, and heat, making it ideal for kitchen and bathroom countertops, wall cladding, and flooring. Quartzite has a natural and varied appearance, with veins and patterns that can add a touch of texture and depth to a design project.
On the other hand, quartz is a material composed of 93% natural quartz and 7% resin and pigments. It is manufactured in a variety of colors and patterns, making it highly customizable to meet the needs of a specific project. Quartz is highly resistant to stains, scratches, and heat, making it ideal for kitchen and bathroom countertops.
The choice between quartzite and quartz will depend on the specific needs of the project. Quartzite is an excellent choice for projects that require durability and resistance, while quartz is highly customizable and can be adapted to a wide range of designs.
