The new Tuscany Village luxury townhomes have unique features unlike any showcased on the market today. From plunge pool spas to rooftop terraces, you will surely find the home that perfectly suits your tastes and needs.

Among some of the popular optional features offered with any of the floor plans are quartz countertops, which can be added to the kitchen and master bath. Quartz is an engineered stone that is both durable and forgiving. The manufactured look of quartz is fairly contemporary with very little maintenance required. Quartz is non porous so it resists staining and can stand up to many stain causing sources in your kitchen like wine, juice, coffee, and oil. Its non porous surface also means that it will not harbor bacteria or viruses. The only thing to be cautious about with your quartz countertops is that it is not as resistant to heat as other countertop materials. You simply need to be careful about putting hot pots, pans and hair dryers directly on the surface.

You might be wondering how other countertop materials compare to quartz. Below are other popular countertop materials and how they compare.

When choosing the countertop surfaces for your kitchen and bath, you really need to determine the look you want and how much ongoing maintenance you are willing to undertake. Granite and marble, with their natural color and veining, are hard to beat. However, they do come with added maintenance. Both will need to be sealed after installation and neither is as stain resistant and scratch resistant as quartz. The manufacturing of quartz often mimics the color and veining of marble without the added maintenance and propensity of staining.
