Designing Your Home
When it comes to designing your home, it is essential to select materials that are both beautiful and functional.
Coffee Tables and End Tables
Coffee tables and end tables help to provide balance to a living space, when arranged in front of or beside a sofa and chairs. They are a central design element which can beautifully complement and tie together your décor and provide a space for other decorative elements such as lamps, books, picture frames, and magazines. However, they also play an important functional role in any living space, housing frequently used items such as remote controls and providing a convenient spot to place food and drinks or gather to play a game or complete an activity. Although selecting coffee tables and end tables can be overwhelming due to the wide variety of options available, quartz tables stand out in terms of their durability, manageability, and design appeal. At Quartex Surfaces in Toronto, we carry an extensive selection of quartz that can be used for your coffee tables and end tables in order to help you achieve a living space that is both aesthetically pleasing and practical.
Quartz has long been a popular selection for kitchen and bathroom countertops due to its extreme durability. However, recently it has also gained popularity as a tabletop finish for coffee and end tables as a result of its resilience. While alternative finishes such as glass and wood are susceptible to damage and show signs of wear over time, quartz is as durable as concrete but is scratch, stain and heat resistant. As a result, it will stay in pristine condition even when exposed to daily wear and tear. Quartz scores 7.0 on Moh’s Hardness Scale, a measurement ranking scratch resistance, sapphires and diamonds, score a 10.
Quartz is also a non-porous material, which means that spills and leaks will not stain its surface. Given the frequency with which coffee tables and end tables house drinks and snacks, spills are almost inevitable. Unlike most comparable surfaces, quartz easily tolerates spills, making it an ideal, carefree option for your living space. Its non-porous nature also means that quartz is an incredibly hygienic material which will not harbour bacteria, mold, or mildew. As a result, you can rest assured that the surface your family members use to eat and play on on a daily basis is clean and germ free.
Comparable materials such as granite and marble require frequent resealing and the use of a specialized cleaning product, while glass tabletops quickly show marks and fingerprints, necessitating frequent cleaning, and wood is easily scratched and quickly damaged by warm drinks and food. Quartz, on the other hand, is renowned for its low maintenance appeal. Quartz can easily be wiped clean with a cloth or towel and gentle cleaning product. This makes it an ideal choice for both coffee and end tables, which are frequently used by the whole family.
Although quartz is incredibly low maintenance, it is still important to take precautions to maintain its beautiful finish. Harsh and abrasive products and cleansers should be avoided as they may damage its surface. In addition, inks, dyes and permanent markers can penetrate its surface, leaving a stain. As such, in the event that your quartz coffee or end tables are exposed to any of the aforementioned products, they should be cleaned immediately with a manufacturer approved cleanser.
In addition to its practicality, quartz is a beautiful material, which is available in a wide range of colours and finishes, suitable to any design aesthetic. Although quartz often resembles natural stones such as granite and marble and is often thought of as a contemporary finish, due to the manufacturing process, it is available in a number of unique colours and finishes, which appeal to any design sensibility, from traditional to modern. As a result, you can choose from our range of natural options, including shades of grey, white, black, or brown, selecting from finishes such as brilliant white, midnight smoke or grey iceberg or opt for a more distinct selection such as a bold blue or gold. To allow for further customization, we also offer a range of finishes for your tabletops, including smooth, high gloss, polished, sandblasted or embossed. Finally, our customer care team can help you select the best height and edge profile- from bevel to ogee, bullnose or chaufer – for your tabletops. Although our website is an excellent place to start, we recommend visiting our state of the art showroom to see the vast range of design options available. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff would be happy to guide you through our selection of products during your complimentary consultation.
