Choosing your perfect Quartz Worktop can sometimes feel a little overwhelming, with such a wide choice of materials available. While some people are drawn to natural, organic granite to add a luxurious feel to their kitchen, others may want a worktop that is extremely durable and hard wearing. As a result quartz has seen a significant increase in popularity over the years and is an ideal alternative to granite – for people who want the visual appeal of natural stone, with the benefits of an engineered material.
Quartz is a natural mineral, and it is combined with resin and other materials to create the quartz slabs that are available at The Granite Guild. When it is used for kitchen worktops it is extremely hard wearing and durable. It is non-porous, meaning that germs and bacteria cannot get into the surface, and it will not pick up stains as some granite’s can. You only really need a mild soap and water to wipe away any mess on your worktop. Quartz is man-made, and is therefore more controlled and consistent than granite. There is a much wider range of colours available than in other natural materials, from calm, muted tones to bold, bright shades – the only limit is your imagination.
We have an excellent selection of Quartz Worktops, and we supply all the major brands such as Silestone, Compac, Technistone and Cimstone, available and ready to go in our warehouses. This durable material is extremely hygienic and hard wearing, giving you a perfect worktop for your home.
