The standard depth for base cabinets is 24 inches, which ensures you can recess the sink or a cooktop within the cabinetry. Stoves and dishwashers are typically sized according these standard measurements as well. If you install a kitchen island, the standard sizing is the same as base cabinet standard measurements.

Stools for raised 42-inch countertops are usually between 28 and 30 inches tall, giving a comfortable 12 to 14 inches of knee room.

Quartz is actually harder than granite and thus, more durable. In fact, quartz is nearly indestructible, and because it isn’t porous like granite, it’s easy to keep your countertops relatively bacteria-free. Be careful with cooking pans though: Quartzcan be damaged by excessive heat, so use heating pads at all times.

Granite will take a hot pot while quartz is less resistant to high heat. Cons: Quartz is a manufactured stone and it is hard to duplicate the veining and pattern look you get from genuine marble or graniteQuartz is approximately 20% to 40% more expensive than granite.

Quartz Scratches Easier Than Granite. The same resin that makes quartz susceptible to damage from heat also makes it more likely to scratch. While it’s not easily scratched under normal use, it’s definitely more likely than granite to see scratches from dropped pans or slipping knives.

Although quartz is very scratch resistant, we do recommend using a cutting board on your quartz countertop. A hot pot or pan can potentially lead to discoloration, we suggest using a trivet to maintain the quality of your countertop.
