It is important to choose the right worktop to suit your kitchen and lifestyle perfectly. Quartz worktops have been increasing in popularity for the last decade, and there are no signs of this popularity slowing down.
Quartz surfaces are non-porous, hard wearing, resistant to heat and scratching, and do not require sealing, making them very low maintenance. Together with their aesthetic advantages, the durability of quartz has meant that this has become the kitchen worktop of choice for many homeowners.
Quartz is usually made from man-made stone, typically engineered using 93% natural quartz, along with various resins and polymers to create a wide range of finishes. Using quartz leads to a final kitchen worktop that is not only strong but also beautiful and sleek.
Thanks to its non-porous properties, quartz does not absorb liquids that are common in kitchens and bathrooms. Problematic liquids for natural stone surfaces include water, oils, wine, juices and soap, making quartz a more hygienic alternative.
Quartz worktops are also easy to keep clean and look as good as new, as they simply require a damp cloth and a mild detergent. This makes quartz the perfect choice – offering the look of marble or granite if desired but without the drawbacks.
