“In the stone category, natural quartzite remains one of stone’s hottest offerings,” said Roy Viana, director of natural stone and slab for Dal-Tile Corporation. “Natural quartzites feature the luxurious look and feel of marble, with all of the benefits of greater durability and hardness. When you talk about countertops, natural quartzite continues to be the fastest-growing category in natural stone for countertops. For those seeking softer looks with more natural movements, natural quartzite is a good fit.”
Daltile’s spring 2022 launch features two beautiful natural quartzite slabs, Caldera Blue and White Pearl.
“The outstanding features of quartz include the virtually unlimited availability of colors and designs combined with durability, ease of maintenance, flexibility of installation and value,” added Viana. “For example, with quartz, you can add gorgeous marble looks to your home’s design in a material that stands up to everyday activity, perfect for kitchens. Bottom line: Quartz offers the vast array of selections that people want in a material perfectly suited to real life activity.”
Daltile’s Spring 2022 ONE Quartz launch includes a stunning 135-7/8” x 78-3/4” design:
It is important to note that the new quartz slabs are manufactured in the brand’s Dickson, Tennessee plant, the most advanced quartz slab production facility in North America. This state-of-the-art facility is producing extra-large quartz slabs that are the epitome of design and style, and the largest in the world (136”x79”). The quartz slabs produced in this facility are made using the highest quality raw materials (quartz, resin, pigments), proprietary design technologies, the most advanced decorative capabilities, the highest levels of gloss and clarity, and exclusive colors and designs. Made in the USA with both domestic and imported materials.
“Domestic production allows us to provide world-class service and react more quickly to our customers’ needs as far as design and service,” said Viana. “There is also no matching the quality we can get when we use workers from the United States.”
