Quartz versus slate worktops



There is a significant difference between slate and quartz worktops. Not every home is the same and every homeowner has different needs. As a result, when choosing a particular countertop, different people will make different selections. Of all the options available, two of the most popular are slate and quartz worktops. Slate is a natural stone which is composed of metamorphic rock while quartz is a man-made product. Quartz is comprised of crushed stone blended with a special resin.

Slate is an attractive worktop to install. It is available in a number of colours like gray, black, charcoal, and brown. Some kinds of slate include hues of red or green. That said, these colours aren’t as flashy as those of some other natural stones which makes them more subdued in terms of style. Since they are non-porous, they are easy to maintain and keep clean. Slate is affordable and resistant to chipping, scratching, and heat. Slate worktops are, however, known for having sharper edges which can result in chipping and possible injury. When installing slate, it’s important to make sure that the edges are rounded.

Quartz is known for its luxurious and elegant appearance as well as a wide variety of colours. It is durable against chipping and cracking. Quartz is also non-porous and competitively priced. The one main downside is that quartz worktops are usually not all that unique in terms of design.
