One of the main reasons why so many people opt for quartz worktops is their incredible toughness and durability. They’re ideal for use in high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Quartz countertops are also heat and scratch-resistant, making them much less likely to get damaged than cheaper types of kitchen worktops, like laminate.
Quartz worktops are a hygienic choice for bathroom countertops and food preparation areas in kitchens. This is because they are non-porous, meaning they don’t absorb spilt liquid or harbour harmful chemicals or bacteria.
Their non-porous quality also means they’re fully stain-resistant and super simple to clean. A spillage of juice or coffee won’t make a difference to your beautiful surface – it’s as simple as wiping it away with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. It’s easy to keep a quartz worktop staying shiny and sparkling clean!
A huge benefit is that quartz worktops are low maintenance. They don’t require regular sealing and are easy to clean, with no routine care necessary.
Finally, quartz worktops are manufactured using resin mixed with ground quartz, and it’s this resin that makes them more flexible than natural stone surfaces. Quartz worktops are therefore unlikely to chip or crack, resulting in a durable and long-lasting investment.
