Quartz is one of the most popular materials for kitchen and bathroom work surfaces and is a great alternative to natural stone worktops like granite and marble. Quartz is often called ‘engineered’ stone because it is processed in a factory.
Unlike granite which is mined whole from stone quarries, natural quartz is ground up and mixed with resin to form large quartz slabs. Most quality quartz worktops are made from 90 – 95% natural quartz minerals and 5 -10% resin and pigments. The mixture is then compressed and heated up to produce large, incredibly strong, durable, solid slabs.
Quartz worktops come in a huge variety of colours and patterns because of the different pigments that are added to the mixture. At Mo’s StoneX, we stock a massive range of beautiful quartz colours, from popular sparkly colours to subtle greys and whites. We have many of London’s most in-demand quartz brands, including Caesarstone, Silestone, Cimstone, and Quartzforms. Mo’s StoneX also produces its own range of Quartz colours, including marble-inspired Carraras and Calacttas.
Our range of customisable finishes and styles makes it easy to create the perfect custom quartz worktop to transform your kitchen or bathroom in London!
