Cirrus White Quartzite
Cirrus White Quartzite - A Strong, Durable Natural Stone Surface
You don’t necessarily want to spend hours daydreaming – you do have obligations like work and family to attend to. However, it’s not always a bad thing to have your head in the clouds. Dreaming of bigger and better things helps us to relax and feel hopeful about the present and the future.
If you’re looking for ways to incorporate soothing, dreamy elements into your home design, you can’t go wrong with Cirrus White Quartzite, a marble-like stone that imbues your kitchen, bathrooms, or other living areas with a breath of fresh air.
Light and breezy, this gorgeous quartzite offers a consistent, bright white background lightly brushed by wispy veins in pale gray.
It feels like nothing so much as feathery cirrus clouds, delicately dotting a windswept sky over a sun-soaked shoreline. In essence, it’s pure zen, which makes it a great addition for any homeowner looking to create a sanctuary from the demands of their daily life.
Choosing this quartzite for the countertops in your home delivers untold benefits. For starters, it goes with absolutely any design style. Whether you have a traditional home featuring elaborate architecture or you’re looking to update a minimalist, modern design, this tranquil variety will fit right in.
It’s the perfect complement to trendy gray and white interiors, acting as a buffer between white cabinets and a gray backsplash or white upper and gray lower cabinets. It’s equally appealing with black and white kitchens or bathrooms, where it will contrast beautifully with dark elements.
Because it is a true white, it also pairs with wooden cabinets in every color, from pale blonde or ashy, weathered wood, to buttery oak, honeyed hickory, rich cherry wood, or decadent mahogany.
It also looks lovely with a range of metallics, whether you want to match with stainless steel and brushed nickel elements or you prefer the standout appeal of gold hardware and fixtures.
In addition, quartzite is extraordinarily practical, especially in busy kitchen or bathroom settings. It lives up to the “hard as a rock” hype with a rating of 7 on the Mohs hardness scale (making it harder than granite).
It’s resistant to heat, staining, scratching, etching, cracking, chipping, and even UV fading. Installing white countertops in a busy household can be stress-inducing, but quartzite is well-suited to the challenges of messy children, not to mention exuberant cooks.
With proper cleaning and maintenance, quartzite can last more than a lifetime. Because it’s natural stone, you will have to seal it regularly. Preserving the sealant is essential to avoiding any harm.
With that being said, cleaning is as easy as wiping daily with a damp cloth and using a combination of gentle soap and water to remove grime. You could also opt for a specialty stone cleaner that you can simply spray and wipe away. Some products even help to protect the sealant for added longevity.
