Midnight by CRL Quartz
Midnight Quartz Material Description
Midnight is a black quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by CRL company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Midnight 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 black Midnight 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 plain Midnight 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 Midnight?
The slabs of Midnight 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 Midnight so unique?
Product colour description:
Black materials, like Midnight by CRL above, are extremely popular in the quartz and granite worktops industry. Primarily because this is a universal colour. Black brilliantly contrasts white & green cabinets or grey floors. It is a colour that emboldens your kitchen and manifests the strength inherent to this stone product. Black resembles depth, a crevice, a black hole. It’s a deceptive colour that seems plain, drab and intimidating in our minds, but when applied to a piece of furniture it inspires a sense of awe and wonder.
Material structure & composition:
This Midnight stone product is plain in nature. The consistent colour, unbroken by patterns or complex compositions is very desired by our customers. A stone worktop need not be elaborate to be displayed – homogenous stone worktops are often bought for their functionality. Contrary to widespread opinion, ‘basic’ colours are visually stimulating, befitting humble interiors or practical designs. One cannot forget that plain is the staple of the prevailing current trend: minimalism.
Material recommended for:
- Contemporary, minimalistic interiors,
- Tile & paint alternative,
- Bathroom & surface panelling.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The black Midnight 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 plain Midnight, 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.
