Quartz worktops are modern, durable and easy to maintain. For these reasons and their natural style they are a popular worktop choice for our clients.
What is Quartz?
Quartz is a man-made stone. It is engineered using up to 93% of natural quartz with additives of resins and polymers. As a result a wide range of finishes can be produced which are both strong and handsome.
Quartz can be honed for an understated look or polished for a little glamour. There are a plethora of colours – soft white for a blank canvass or gold noir for a moody atmosphere and many shades in-between. Grains can take on the look of marble and granite or catch the light with the mirror chip. Whatever the choice quartz blends seamlessly to its surroundings.
Quartz is available in large format slabs. Because of this the pattern can be consistent over large areas. This is a big advantage for large areas such as a kitchen island.
Unlike natural stone, quartz is non-porous. Therefore, it doesn’t absorb liquids frequently found in the kitchen, such as oil, wine, citrus juice or bleach.
In addition, it is heat resistant and scratch resistant. It is even possible to chop directly onto quartz although Kitchenality recommend using a chopping board.
This makes it highly practical.
Quartz is simple to clean. Warm water and soap or a mild detergent are all that is needed. Also its’ non-porous quality means that it prevents a build-up of bacteria and mould. It is, therefore, easy to keep the whole worktop clean and hygienic.
Kitchenality’s service includes template, fabrication, installation and delivery of quartz and any other worktops.
