Ideal Materials for Seamless Countertops

 Made of mostly natural quartz, ColorQuartz lets you make long runs of countertops without seams. Calacatta Island.

Countertops with few or no seams offer a blend of practicality and modern style. Eliminating seams or grout lines not only continues the visual interest of a design, but it significantly reduces the places where grease and grime can collect and harbor bacteria. Continuous, smooth surfaces are far easier to clean making them a more sanitary choice. 

Beyond a cleaner surface that’s easier to maintain, seamless projects offer increased design possibilities. There are virtually no limits when it comes to size, and cool design elements like waterfall islands look that much sleeker. 

Our two favorite products for creating seamless countertops are Neolith  and ColorQuartz. Both products come in long slabs (with Neolith’s options being the longest in the industry), which make it very easy to create long runs without seams. Both materials are excellent for use as countertops. And both may be continued up the wall, seam-free, onto backsplashes for a look that’s modern and virtually maintenance-free. 

Ultra-compact Neolith is ideal for creating seamless countertops. Neolith Estatuario Island. 

Neolith is an ultra-compact surface made up of 100 percent natural minerals, including clay, feldspar, silica, and mineral oxide. Created in Spain through a high-tech process that creates a lightweight, waterproof material, Neolith is scratch, stain, UV, cold, heat, and fire resistant. Neolith stands up to harsh cleaning agents and it can easily handle high traffic areas and abrasion. It comes in slabs up to 144 inches long and as thin as 3 to 5 millimeters. This makes it excellent for achieving long stretches without joints. Plus, it’s so light that it’s very easy to transport and install. 

ColorQuartz is made mostly from crushed quartz, one of nature’s hardest minerals, combined with high quality polyester resins and pigments. 
ColorQuartz is formed into dense slabs that are four times stronger and twice as impact-resistant than natural stone. ColorQuartz is non-porous, so bacteria won’t grow. Plus, it’s resistant to stains, chips, cracks, and chemicals. Though it’s fabricated similarly to natural stone, the seams of ColorQuartz projects may be blended in until they are virtually invisible.
