What is the Best Thickness of Quartz Countertops?

There are basically 3 types of thickness of quartz countertop available in the market for different applications mentioned below. You can select based on your requirements  and taste. Generally, 2 and 3 cm thickness are considered to be best and durable. 

1 or 1.2 Cm Thickness

This is the thinnest and cheapest option that’s available and it’s relevant to two applications. The first application is in prefabs or, also known, prefabricated countertops that have laminated edges. These slabs come pre-polished and pre-laminated. Typically, they are affordable and time-effective. However, they are fragile and require considerable support. The second application involves using it as vertical wall cladding, such as shower walls, fireplace surroundings, and wainscoting. Because of their lightweight capacity. 

2 Cm Thickness

Next comes a 2cm countertop, which weighs less and is better suited for vertical applications since it may be more prone to damage. But, when the 2 cm thickness of quartz is used for your kitchen or bathroom counter, it adds a contemporary aesthetic appeal because of its slimmer profile. This option of thickness is stronger as it doesn’t require minimal support as compared to the 1.2 cm thickness option. Hence, they are best for clean and minimalist appearance of interiors. 

3 Cm Thickness

The 3cm quartz thickness countertop withstands heavier weight because of the added thickness. Hence, it’s the ideal choice for the spaces that will see heavier traffic and use. However, since this classic countertop choice is heavier, you must ensure that your cabinets and even flooring, and foundation could handle this amount of added weight. Also, in most cases, this thickness of quartz countertops would be the best. 

The thickness of the quartz countertop doesn’t play any role in their care and maintenance. You can just clean and polish with specially designed quartz polish and cleaner.
