Lugano by CRL Quartz
Lugano Quartz Material Description
Lugano is a marble look, white quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by CRL company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Lugano is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
To this day, quartz remains one of our best-selling stone worktops products. It is nearly infallible, defined by near-indestructible properties, easy cleaning & maintenance, but above all exceptional beauty. Quartz is modern, stylish, sleek and perfectly slots into any environment, as though it naturally belongs there.
The marble look, white Lugano quartz worktops are incredibly sturdy and resistant to abrasion, cutting, staining and general wear and tear that impact other, weaker materials, like wood or laminate worktops. You may cut vegetables, fruit or meat directly on a quartz surface, forgoing the need for chopping boards. Even the sharpest of blades won’t scratch this durable stone.
The sleek quartz kitchen worktops are also completely waterproof. Since they are man-made products, they are imbued during the production process with special resins and agents that prevent all water absorption. Therefore, even if you leave a coffee, wine, grease or water spill over night, the worktop won’t soak any of it up, leaving the colour and pristine shine entirely unharmed.
Discolouration, chipping, and warping aren’t a threat to speckled Lugano kitchen quartz worktops. These are products blessed with incredible longevity and unmatched durability. In essence, these tops are a one-off purchase that lasts a lifetime.
What thicknesses are available for Lugano?
The slabs of Lugano by CRL are available in 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
What makes Lugano so unique?
Product colour description:
The marble look pattern contains veins streaming and pulsating down the length of Lugano by CRL. They animate this surface, granting it energy, depth and chromatic richness. Organic, marble effect colours pair well with a cabinet of virtually any colour. But above all, they are stand-out centrepieces on kitchen islands, where the organic patterns cascade down the edge, flowing onto the adjoining side panels. This natural theme is universally applicable to similar or contrasting colours.
In today’s world of interior design, the colour white is incredibly fashionable, and a priority choice of many people. This CRL Lugano kitchen worktop product certainly follows that trend, adopting a white hue that befits almost every kitchen cabinet. The contrasting darker shades and homogenous lighter shades become resonant with the white worktop in the foreground. White is a universal, neutral colour, but likewise a safe & timeless option. Whether the interior is full of disparity or scarce in diversity, white always prevails. Dark blue + white composition would be our suggestion!
Material structure & composition:
Majority of our stone products, as Lugano above, are speckled in nature. This means their composition comprises of small-to-medium contrasting veins and threads that spread across the slab surface in a usually regular manner. Like on a leaf, further mimicking the natural inspiration. This structure is a part of our marble-look, natural colour range – fantastic for almost any interior, modern and traditional alike.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops & full splashbacks,
- Modern and traditional interiors,
- General cladding.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The marble look, white Lugano by CRL can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
CRL (CR Laurence), leading suppliers of quartz stone, are based in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Located close to our Polish Granite showroom, CRL to this day remains one of our main partners. Their comprehensive assortment of quartz slabs (designs, patterns, hues) impresses most of our customers, as they meet the highest standards of quality. Thanks to CRL’s diversified range of slabs, e.g. the speckled Lugano, our customers may choose a dreamed-of worktop surface that suits their unique interior.
It could be a ‘natural’ themed creamy colour containing irregular veins and speckles running through it like minute rivers. Or a vibrant, grey-blue shade with wave-like patterns stretch across the surface. There are just under 50 colours, each with unique character, that make up the CRL palette.
Thanks to their high levels of innovation, CRL were able to create quartz materials that resist absorption, heat or impact damage. Discolouration is neither a problem. As such, the compact CRL products are highly recommended for quartz worktops that are exposed daily to sharp knives, liquids or potential wear and tear.
