Top Benefits of Quartz Kitchen Worktops you do not Know About

by Joe Morgan Sales Manager

Most of the general audience tend think of granite countertops as their first choice for their kitchen worktops. However, this trend is gradually declining as an increasing number of people have started opting for quartz stone for their kitchens. In fact, as a result of the competitive nature of the quartz countertop prices, quartz has become an increasingly popular choice.

 



However, it is not just the price which is driving the sales of quartz kitchen worktops in UK and surrounding areas. There are a number of other benefits which is attracting customers steadily of which a few have been mentioned below –

 

Tough and Durable

 

White quartz countertops are made from slabs of stone. They are composed of 90% quartz and the remaining consists of colored pigments and binding polymers. It is because of the high content of quartz in these worktops which makes them very durable. It is also greatly resistant to chips, stains and scratches. Because of the durability of quartz stones for kitchens, they can survive for many years without the need to be replaced or fixing chips, cracks and scratches.

 

Nonporous

 

Owing to the nature of how quartz kitchen worktops in UK and surrounding areas are engineered, it results in the formation of a nonporous surface. This results in no holes or cracks getting formed where liquids could fill up and soak in. This results in more number of advantages.

 

To begin with, a nonporous surface means that the white quartz countertop will be more resistant to staining as compared to its porous counterparts and the characteristic of white quartz countertops is very similar from white macaubas quartzite. Nonporous means it is also more sanitary and thus no bacteria, germs, or any harmful viruses can form on the countertop. As the surface is smooth, it can be easily wiped and cleaned which leads to it the worktop remaining clean for a long duration of time.

 

Easy to Maintain

 

Worktops which are made from natural stone such as concrete or granite need to be sealed with a coating of wax on top of it. Quartz stones for kitchens on the other hand do not need any such sealant. This greatly brings down the quartz countertop prices as they require less maintenance over time as compared to other countertop materials.

 

They are also very easy to clean and maintain as a simple wipe with cloth, soap and water is more than sufficient to clean it. Thus, no more intense sessions of scrubbing as is usually done with other kitchen countertops.

 

Variety of Styles

 

Quartz countertops come in a wide variety of styles as they are man-made. They can thus be modified according to wide range of colors and aesthetics. Natural stones can only be worked with the colors which they are available in. This however, is not the case with quartz which can be colored to match the color scheme of your residence or kitchen. Virtually every possible color and design imaginable can be manufactured based on the tastes and preferences of the customer.

 

Countertops which are made from natural stones may still be popular, but they cannot match up to the level of cleanliness and durability which is offered by quartz kitchen worktops in UK. They are thus a great long-term investment.
