Quartz Worktops – Why should you choose them as your kitchen surfaces?
Quartz worktops add a unique style and design to any kitchen. From modern to more classical kitchens, they fit into almost any environment. But above their elegant beauty, their extreme durability and resistance renders them ideal kitchen products, since the risk/susceptibility to wear and tear is minimal. This is especially important during the recent pandemic, in times where we spend far more time in the kitchens, cooking, baking and generally utilising the kitchen worktops/appliances far more frequently.
The material not only prevents scratching and staining, it’s also invulnerable to impact/mechanical damage, therefore you need not worry about chipping or crumbling these stone worktops.
In fact, it’s been tested and proven that a quartz worktop can be even more resistant, durable and long-lasting than 95% of other ornamental synthetic worktop products. So choosing these kitchen surfaces will not only fulfill the job of elegant decoration, quartz worktops are also an economic investment, saving money in the long term, since the stellar stone will last you a lifetime.
There are currently over 500 quartz colours available on the UK market; in vast range of finishes & textures: (polished), suede (matt) or volcano (rustic).

Further Answers to your Quartz-related Questions:
Is each quartz type different in terms of characteristics?
What you elect in terms of colour should purely be a matter of personal preference and taste. Please do not be mislead into thinking that each colour has seperate qualities – on the contrary, all quartz material (no matter which supplier company) is identical. And all our past customers will admit that their materials share the same advantages: longevity, solid durability, damage/heat/bacteria resistance, low-porosity, low maintenance, and everlasting non-fading allurement. These are the virtues of every single quartz material created, and the colour, texture or pattern does not impact these attributes.
To further that point, the only reason quartzes may differ in price is because the stock constantly fluctuates; new models come in, while others become limited. Likewise, some quartz designs are very expensive to produce, therefore the suppliers set the price bar very high. These are only some of the factors to consider.
Where is quartz applicable?
Quartz nowadays can be noticed around every corner, even if we don’t own the material ourselves. The product has finally entered the mainstream and because of the attractive, affordable prices, more people than ever incorporate this stone in their homes. But apart from kitchens, quartz can very well be used elsewhere:
In fact, majority of new apartments and houses that have been built in the last decade contain hints of quartz, either exposed inside or outside. Its sleek, stunning and elegant design makes it a perfect fitting for modern, glass enveloped creations. Its integration as a decorative piece has become a signature custom of big firms, offices, banks and interior/exterior design groups. Quartz’s wide use is no longer strictly domestic.
What are quartz worktops made of? What consitutes their integrity?
Engineered Quartz is an artificial stone, compared to its natural stone-cousin, granite. The material consists of vast properties: approx. 94% quartzite + other additives e.g. resin, natural detritus, mineral pigments, dyes etc. These are the properties that make its resistance to staining and corrosion so impeccable.
Because quartz is a man-made material, and produced by many suppliers worldwide, it is available in hundreds of distinctive colours. Collection of beautiful plain hues (black, dark green, blue, light grey, white, beige, brown, silver, gold) marble-like vein imitations (like the classic Calacatta, Statuario, Marquina or Carrara colours), mirror-chips, grains – whatever you desire is probably out there available for supply & purchase! It’s truly a hard wearing, modern, high quality product that offers your kitchen a contemporary, unique touch, converting it into a happy and pleasing interior space.
