Quartz can be a great building material to use in the home. With exceptional beauty, it can be the highlight of any room. It can also be used on the exterior of the home. Here are 5 reasons to look at Quartz in the Home.

Quartz Countertops

One use of quartz in the home is the kitchen countertop or a quartz bathroom worktop.

Quartz countertops are very durable and don't tend to chip, break, stain, or require a lot of maintenance when compared to other types of countertop building materials.

Quartz gives an exceptional look to the kitchen or the bathroom and be the highlight of these rooms. At McMonagles we have the experience to install these types of countertops and to find just the right one to meet your needs. These quartz countertops also hold their value over time and will add even more value to your home if you decide to sell it in the future. Quartz is therefore a great material to use for any type of countertop.

Quartz in the Garden

Quartz is also a great material for outside used. In the garden area, for example Quartz Stones can be used as stepping stones. You can also use pieces of quartz in the garden as decorations, use crushed quartz in flower beds or other planter boxes to give your garden a unique look.

Landscapers use Quartz often to make gardens stand out.

Quartz Crystals

Staying in the garden for a moment there is lots of evidence to suggest that quartz stones encourage the growth of many plants and that Quartz Crystal (as well as beautiful) are a great addition to any gardeners garden.

Quartz Decorations

For many quartz can be used as simple decorations. They may add quartz crystals to a container to add colour and variety in the home or give a room a particular look and appeal.  

You might add quartz to the bathroom, for example adding small pieces to a flower box or other planter to give the plant a better visual appearance. Scouring Pinterest within the world of quartz and decoration offers endless possibilities to add such beauty and a unique style to any home.

There are many uses for quartz in the home, both inside and out. The colour of the material can add variety to a room home.
