Quartz work surfaces are a first-class choice for high-traffic areas like kitchens and bathrooms because of their toughness and durability. They’re also heat and scratch-resistant, so they’re less prone to damage and visible wear and tear than cheaper options like laminate worktops.
With a quartz countertop, you don’t have to worry about spillages. They’re fully stain-resistant and easy to clean. All you have to do is wipe up the spilt liquid with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water, and your quartz worktop will look like new again.
Quartz is also non-porous, so quartz worktops won’t absorb any liquid, and germs and bacteria won’t seep into the material. This makes them a safe and hygienic choice for bathroom countertops and food preparation areas in kitchens.
The resin added to ground quartz during manufacturing makes quartz surfaces more flexible than natural stone. This means they’re less likely to crack or chip over time, so you can enjoy your stunning new quartz worktop for years to come.
Another benefit of quartz over natural stone or solid wood worktops is that quartz never requires sealing or oiling. Most natural stone worktops have to be resealed regularly to protect the material, but choosing quartz means you’ll never have to stress about remembering to seal your work surface!
