The overall cost however is all dependent on the size of your kitchen, cabinet style and counter top selection. Some extras that will add to the cost of a kitchen that you must consider are; crown moldings, crown to the ceiling, light rail, upgraded edge profiles, adding an island or peninsula, extra sink cut out, glass doors…etc.
Quartz is a man-made product, made up of 93% natural quartzite and polymer resins, generally creating a more uniform appearance. Unlike a natural stone like granite, it is virtually stain, scratch and chip resistant. This also makes for a maintenance free product, where sealing is unnecessary. Another benefit are that the seams in a quartz product are also less noticeable do to the constant coloring in the material.
The price here at Rockwood Kitchens are comparable for both products. Granite is slightly cheaper from $48-$65 a square foot. Whereas quartz is $55-$80 a square foot. Both products offer their own unique properties and it all comes down to personal preference.
