Quartzite

Like granite, quartzite is used most often in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, mud rooms, flooring material, and backsplash surfaces.

Durability and Maintenance

Quartzite is colored differently depending on the stone, and quartzite is easy to maintain with soap and water. Quartzite is a very durable material but is slightly more likely to chip than granite. The main differences between granite and quartzite are that quartzite is slightly denser and more expensive.

Here’s an example of how Drury has used quartzite in a kitchen remodel with Arabescato Quartzite with straight edge.
