Are quartz worktops a good choice?

Are quartz worktops a good choice?

Kitchen worktops are one of the most important elements of any kitchen, as they need to be functional and aesthetically pleasing in a space used for food preparation and socialising. There are many different materials available for worktops, but one of the most popular luxury options is solid quartz. But are quartz worktops good? In this short article, we’ll explore the benefits of these worktops, and why they might be the perfect choice for your kitchen.



Solid quartz worktops are incredibly durable, making them an ideal choice for hardworking kitchens. Quartz is one of the hardest materials on the planet, and when it’s engineered into a worktop, it becomes even tougher, being resistant to scratches, stains, and heat. Whilst they may cost more than laminate worktops for example, their extended lifespan can make them a good value and practical option.


Low Maintenance

Solid quartz worktops are incredibly easy to maintain, which is great news for busy homeowners. Unlike some other materials, such as wood or granite, quartz doesn’t need to be sealed, polished, or reconditioned. Simply wipe the surface with a damp cloth and mild soap, and your worktop will look as good as new.



Solid quartz worktops are non-porous, which means they don’t absorb liquids, bacteria, or other contaminants. This makes them an ideal choice for food preparation areas, as they’re incredibly hygienic and easy to keep clean.


Aesthetic Appeal

Solid quartz worktops are available in a wide range of colours and patterns, making it easy to find a style that suits your kitchen. The finish on a quartz worktop is often considered to be more consistent and predictable when compared to the level of variation that can be found in marble and granite alternatives. Whether you’re looking for a sleek, modern look or a more traditional feel, there’s a quartz worktop that will fit the bill. Our sales centres have a range of colours and patterns on display to help you select from our range. Please check with our sales advisors if quartz worktops are included or available as an upgraded option.


Resistant to Stains

Another great benefit of solid quartz worktops is that they’re resistant to stains. Unlike some other materials, such as granite or marble, quartz doesn’t absorb liquids, so it’s less likely to stain. This makes it an ideal choice for kitchens where spills and stains are a daily occurrence.
