A fairly modern addition to the family of popular worktop materials, quartz worktops are the perfect clean contemporary interior choice for any design. Engineered by mixing ground or crushed quartz with polymers, resins and pigment to create a stylish variety of textures and colours, these stunning kitchen materials boast a range of practical and aesthetic advantages that make them a consistently popular choice regardless of your interior approach.
Defined by durability
Scoring a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, quartz is one of the world’s hardest minerals, giving quartz worktops a distinct practical advantage over natural stone. Made with approximately 6-10% resins, quartz is a non-porous material that never has to be sealed. This means no matter what splashes and spills your kitchen worktop is subject to, quartz will withstand it effortlessly.
Positioned in the heart of the home, quartz kitchen tops are going to be subject to daily wear and tear. From hot dishes to regular exposure to cleaning products, any kitchen needs to be equipped with durable and easy to maintain materials that minimise the potential for any permanent damage.
Chemically inert, quartz typically doesn’t react with chemicals. This means any traditionally concerning spills such as wine and fruit juices no longer need to be at the forefront of your worries – the chemical neutrality of the material ensures no permanent damage.
This means a stress-free, easy to clean worktop option. The porous nature of quartz worktops means liquids can be absorbed rather than being left to stain, easily maintained through simple cleaning with soap and water. Moreover, since quartz never has to be sealed, quartz worktops are very hygienic with unique antibacterial qualities.
