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.

The quartz worktops also have resin and colours added to ensure you have a quality worktop that needs little care and looks great.
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, due to its non-porous nature, which means bacteria that is unable to breed on the surfaces of the countertops. Compared to marble, 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.

Quartz and granite are two of the toughest natural materials and are excellent choices for kitchen worktops. The biggest difference between quartz and granite worktops is the engineering process of the stones. Quartz worktops are man-made, whereas granite worktops are a hundred percent natural. This makes quartz worktops have distinct advantages over granite, in terms of what can be done with them.
