Quartz kitchen worktops offer the perfect finishing touch to add a rich and luxurious feel to your new kitchen design.
Quartz is not mined out of the earth like granite and other materials and cut into slabs, therefore making it possible for the manufacturers to engineer worktops that are exceptionally beautiful and consistent. They can also be finished so that each has a shiny surface with a muted satin look, in many different colours and design. Your options are nearly endless as quartz ranges from natural colours such as whites, blacks and browns to other colours such as gold’s or blues with small amounts of glass or metallic flecks added to create variety,
As a material Quartz is one of the strongest available and therefore makes an ideal choice for worktops. Created from 93% quartz combined with 7% resin to bind it together they are extremely hard-wearing and highly practical. It is the strongest option available for kitchen worktops and is non-porous which means it is scratch and stain-resistant, as well as being impervious to bacteria. Although they aren’t stain-proof, they are highly stain-resistant and will not require sealing or future maintenance. A non abrasive sponge with warm soap and water is all that this surface will require to maintain the worktops.
Quartz is extremely versatile, meaning that you can have more intricate designs such as curves, fancy edges and irregular shapes. As well as being highly resistant, Quartz will not need buffing dry or polishing, it will dry without smears. Quartz kitchen worktops do not burn, or give off smoke or toxic substances when exposed to high temperatures, making them a popular option in kitchen design.
