10 reasons to choose a quartz worktop

Kitchen worktops are an essential part of the room to get right as they provide an aesthetic appeal and will be with you for decades to come. There are plenty of options too, which is great as you have wonderful choice over the look of your kitchen.

One of the popular materials in recent times in quartz. Quartz is an engineered stone offering a number of brilliant benefits for any kitchen, so take a look at the 10 best reasons to make your investment.

1. Cost-effective
Quartz provides an aesthetic appeal with hardwearing qualities suitable for the kitchen, but without the same price as you’d expect from granite and other stone products. Of course, prices will vary, but if you’re on more of a budget, then quartz is definitely the route to go down.

2. Customised options
Quartz is unique compared to other worktop materials in allowing you to easily customise the full appearance. Slabs of quartz can be produced with any pattern, texture or colour you wish for, giving the perfect kitchen finish.

3. Excellent appeal
With quartz, the material isn’t mined and can therefore be adapted to fit your own taste. This gives the manufacturer plenty of room to play with to create a beautiful appeal. Quartz can also be finished with a shiny surface.

4. Non-porous
With quartz you won’t have to worry about germs and bacteria as it’s a non-porous surface. This gives you the opportunity to have a thoroughly clean and hygienic kitchen at all times.

5. Low maintenance
With quartz you don’t have to worry about regular maintenance as you would with something like wood. Quartz is easy enough to clean with soapy water and won’t scratch.

6. Excellent durability
Quartz is 93% pure quartz stone and 7% resin binder. This means it’s incredibly resilient and a lot stronger than the other options you could consider, such as laminate, wood or even bamboo.

7. Naturally hygienic
Quartz worktops prevent bacterial growth. This ensures healthy food preparation and storage.

8. Stain and scratch resistance
You won’t have to worry about staining or scratching your shiny new quartz worktop as it’s resistant to both. You’ll also be able to place hot pans directly onto the surface without the risk of burning.

9. Lasting colour
Once your worktop is fitted, it won’t start to lose its colour over the years. It keeps its natural form, even through decades of use and has an extremely long life expectancy.

10. Hides seams
Stone worktops can have visible seams where the joints are, but your quartz manufacturer can colour and polish the surface to ensure they’re invisible to the naked eye. This will provide your kitchen with a fantastic lasting appeal.
