When it comes to choosing new worktops for your home, it’s not a decision you will want to make in a hurry. There are a number of excellent options out there and, by understanding the pros and cons of each option, you can make an informed decision.
Quartz is one of the most popular of all stone worktops in households today. While stones like granite and marble are mined straight from the earth where as quartz is engineered. Ground quartz is combined with pigments as well as resins in order to give the worktops their superb appearance and strength.
One of the main differences that results from the use of resin is the fact that quartz is not porous like other types of natural stone. It’s always good to check with your supplier but most, if not all, agree that there is no need to seal these worktops thanks to the resin. Another benefit is the fact that these worktops are known for their colour consistency which helps create a uniformed design rather than one with unpredictable veining.
Quartz is also available in a wider number of colours which gives you far more flexibility in terms of your design and colour scheme. They are also great for cleaner cuts and seams which gives your worktops an even more perfect appearance.
