It’s becoming common knowledge that in the rental housing market, Quartz countertops are more and more the gold standard.

Other surfaces just can’t match the longevity, beauty, and affordability of this miracle material, and discerning renters ask for it by name. But there’s more to it than what a countertop is made of.

Here, we’ll explore the advantages of the sleeker 2cm (or ¾”) thick Quartz material vs the 3cm (1 ¼”).

New Market, New Look

On the forefront of modernity, a thinner, sleeker material is almost invariably being selected when it comes to countertop design, and a 3cm front edge is widely regarded as too bulky to fit in with the sharp lines that cutting-edge kitchens and bathrooms gravitate toward.

Practicality is key these days, and a 2cm backsplash makes for less crowded surfaces, giving tenants more space. Additionally, 2cm quartz, though thinner, is still quite durable and more than capable of handling the rigors that renters subject their countertops to.

Less Material, More Value

Quartz in general delivers massive return for an affordable investment, so it’s not hard to understand why thinner quartz could provide even more value. A thinner material equals a reduction in cost, and the prudent property owner can spend a significant amount less on remodels or new construction simply by choosing to design with 2cm material!

And because quartz countertops can drive higher rents in properties regardless of the thickness, this is a surefire strategy for larger margins.

What’s the Takeaway?

In summary, increasingly consistent selection of 2cm over 3cm thick material for countertops in rental properties nationwide represents one of the most drastic shifts in countertop design seen in recent years. It’s easy to see why this thinner, versatile and affordable surface option is taking the countertop world by storm and quickly becoming the undisputed way to go.
