Quartz Worktops UK – The Perfect Meeting Of Nature and Science
Quartz worktops have become exceedingly popular in recent years due to their fabulous aesthetics and durability. They have the look of natural stone but require a minimal amount of maintenance which will save you time constantly worrying about your worktop.
Quartz is the most common mineral in the earth’s surface and worktops are made up of 93% natural quartz. There are only three natural minerals harder than quartz – diamond, sapphire and topaz, so not surprisingly it is almost completely scratch resistant, heat resistant and completely non porous.

What is Quartz?
Quartz is the fourth hardest natural materials known to man with only diamond, sapphire and topaz being stronger. Quartz worktops are 93% natural quartz and as you can imagine makes the worktop extremely durable as it is scratch and heat resistant. The quartz worktops also have resin and colours added to ensure you have a quality worktop that needs little care and looks great.
Why Quartz Worktops could be for you?
Being man made Quartz comes in a huge range of colours and as it is factory controlled you can rely on the consistency of colour. There are mottled as well as single colours available and quartz worktops are available in a number of finishes. We turn Quartz slabs into bespoke shaped countertops that are honed to accompany your sinks and taps, we have also made special countertops for those who are looking to add a bar in their home.
Not only can Quartz look extremely similar to granite, it is easy to care for and is extremely hygienic, being non- porous means bacteria is unable to breed on the surfaces of the countertops. Compared to granite, Quartz has a high resistance to abrasive materials such as Lemon juice, vinegar, red wine and cooking oil that would affect granite because it is half porous.
When it comes to cleaning Quartz it requires very little maintenance, in fact it is probably the easiest to keep clean and care for compared to other materials used for kitchen worktops. By simply wiping the worktop with a damp cloth and using another soft cloth to dry will do the job. For any other spills that may dry on work surfaces using a scourer or in the worst case scenario using a sharp knife will remove the spill. Despite what you may think Quartz will not be affected by scratching and the surface will not be damaged.
Depending on the quartz you choose, it may be possible to match your floor tiles to your worktop so if this is something you want, talk to us and we will advise you.
