About Quartz Worktops

Quartz Worktops are made of pieces of natural Quartz bonded together with a small amount of adhesive. Quartz worktops are often made up of 90-99% Quartz but the exact ratio depends on the manufacturer and type of Quartz worktop.

As an example, Samsung Radianz Quartz is 93% quartz, as it is quite fine-grained. Below our experts run you through how Quartz Worktops are made and how this provides some excellent features and benefits for these worktops.

What is a quartz worktop?

Unlike granite worktops, quartz worktops are made from engineered stone, formed by a combination of ground quartz, resins and polymers to create a very solid material. The manufacturing process makes quartz heat resistant, making it ideal for kitchen countertops. Its hardwearing and moisture-resistant qualities help keep it looking newer for longer, making it an investment feature for any space.

These work surfaces create a luxe look that can provide a striking contrast to heritage designs or blend seamlessly with a contemporary finish. The consistent composition of the material also leaves a uniform colour and pattern for a cohesive look throughout a room.

Quartz countertops are also non-porous, preventing bacteria from growing and making it more hygienic. Varying styles, lengths and profiles are available in a choice of colours to suit different looks and budgets. These worktops are suitable for both kitchens and bathrooms.

Why are quartz worktops so popular?

Quartz, also called “engineered stone,” is one of the hardest minerals on earth, thus when used as a worktops option in homes, it is arguably the most durable choice. Unlike other mined natural stone slabs, quartz is produced in a factory. Here are some other reasons people love quartz worktops:

Quartz, also called “engineered stone,” is one of the hardest minerals on earth, thus when used as a worktops option in homes, it is arguably the most durable choice. Unlike other mined natural stone slabs, quartz is produced in a factory. Here are some other reasons people love quartz worktops:

  • They can be made in a variety of colours from bright red to lime green, as well as popular brown, black and cream neutral colours.

  • Quartz is less likely to crack or chip in compared to granite or marble since it is stronger.

  • It is a non-porous material so it will not harbor bacteria in tiny cracks like other countertop materials.

  • It is resistant to stains so oil, juice, wine, tomato, coffee and more have no effect on the color.

Highly stain resistant

As a non-porous stone, quartz worktops are extremely stain resistant. Whereas spillages during food preparations can often seep into the cracks of granite and marble stone, this does not happen with quartz worktops.

Maintenance is a breeze

Quartz worktops require minimal maintenance, unlike some other natural stones such as marble. This makes them an ideal material for high traffic areas of the home such as the kitchen.

They are extremely flexible

They are very pliable and able to be adapted to fit bespoke worktop designs. And this is yet another reason that makes quartz worktops a popular choice not only for kitchen worktops.

Hard wearing and durable

Hard-wearing and durable, quartz worktops are highly resistant to chipping and scratching. However, whilst natural stones such as granite also share these qualities, quartz worktops carry the added benefit of flexibility, making them easier to work with when it comes to installation and edging options.

Huge range of colours at affordable prices

As a non-porous stone, quartz worktops are extremely stain resistant. Whereas spillages during food preparations can often seep into the cracks of granite and marble stone, this does not happen with quartz worktops.
