Whether you’re renovating your entire kitchen or just updating your worktops, quartz is a great choice. However, quartz work surfaces can be more expensive than other worktop materials, so you’re probably wondering, ‘Are quartz worktops worth it?’

The experts at Mo’s Stonex have put together this guide with everything you need to know so you can decide if a beautiful and durable quartz countertop is the right fit for your kitchen. 


What is a quartz worktop?

Quartz worktops are often called ‘engineered stone’ worktops. They’re a popular alternative to natural stone surfaces like granite. Quartz countertops are made from a mixture of crushed quartz crystals, resin, and coloured pigments. 


Why choose a quartz worktop?

There’s a reason why quartz is one of the most popular worktop materials: it’s durable, stain-resistant and available in a huge range of colours and patterns! Here are some reasons why a quartz worktop is a worthwhile investment. 


Quartz has an elegant and polished appearance, making it a great choice if you want to add a luxury feel to your space. It can be manufactured in various colours, including sparkly options and marble-inspired patterns. It’s easy to find the perfect quartz countertop to match the rest of your home’s interior!

Low maintenance

A quartz worktop won’t ever require sealing like a natural stone worktop, making it the perfect low-maintenance choice. Quartz work surfaces are also incredibly easy to clean and highly resistant to stains, so there’s no need to stress about accidental spillages.


Quartz countertops are non-porous, waterproof, and antimicrobial. Your quartz worktop won’t harbour harmful germs or bacteria, making it a hygienic choice for all kitchens and bathrooms.  


Paying more for your worktop and investing in quartz means you’ll get a tough, durable surface that will last for years and years. Quartz is highly scratch-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about damaging your beautiful new countertop. 


Engineered quartz worktops are made from a combination of ground quartz and resin. The addition of resin makes them more flexible than natural stone worktops. This makes them easier to install and allows you to choose from a wider range of edging options.
