The Benefits of Marble Effect Worktops
Marble-effect worktops can be created from a variety of stones such as quartz, granite, porcelain and ceramic. With these, you have a variety of choice of colours, patterns and textures so you can find the perfect fit for you. Materials such as quartz are much easier to work with than marble. Larger slabs can be used as the joints are well hidden. Being man-made, quartz tends to follow a similar pattern so that each countertop will match. Marble occurs naturally so will differ between slabs.
One of the biggest potential drawbacks of marble is the price. It’s a luxurious stone so tends to be higher on the cost scale. Marble-effect worktops tend to be more affordable. They’re also light and flexible so it’s much easier to manipulate into the right shape for your kitchen. We pride ourselves in all our work being tailored to our clients. Our suppliers such as Compac and Radianz provide stones which we turn into beautiful worktops.

If you want beautiful worktops but live in a busy household, marble-effect is the stone for you. Materials used for marble-effect, such as quartz, are non-porous. This means that it won’t be damaged or stained by common things found in the kitchen such as wine and lemon juice. It’s also a very hygienic stone as dirt and bacteria cannot penetrate the surface. Simply wipe over with warm soapy water and your surface is clean.
