While granite has traditionally been the go-to worktop material, quartz has fast become a popular choice for homeowners and interior designers looking for something different. Engineered quartz worktops are an expert blend of natural stone, colour pigments and binding agent - which means they come in a range of different colours and styles that can complement existing home décor.
One of the hardest minerals on Earth, quartz is both long-lasting and extremely durable - which means it’s guaranteed that, with the proper care, your quartz worktop will look beautiful for decades to come. Unlike natural rock, one of quartz’s greatest benefits is the fact it’s non-porous - which makes it impermeable to water, air and bacteria. This makes it the ideal material for use in the kitchen, where meal preparation and general socialising are day-to-day occurrences. This also makes quartz an exceptionally hassle-free option, able to be maintained easily without the need for excessive care routines.
As a mineral, pure quartz is both transparent and colourless, but with other varieties like blush rose quartz or pale blue quartz, and through modern manufacturing processes, you can bring a quartz worktop to life with a range of different colours. At Stone Genie, we stock a great selection of different colours to tie in with your existing home aesthetic. Whether you want your worktop to be grey, white, brown or red-tinted, you’ll find the perfect type here to add style to your kitchen design.
The price for quartz worktops varies depending on size, shape and style, but with our easy-to-use online quote generator we can provide you with a straightforward breakdown of costs. What’s more, with our 0% interest finance option*, you can spread payments over a number of months - which means your dream kitchen worktop is well within reach.
This worktop type is inherently easy to care for, boasting robust properties that make it great for long-term use in a kitchen. Simply wipe with a damp cloth, using a neutral detergent if required to tackle tougher stains. Like most types of worktop, you should ensure that dirt and liquids don’t sit on the surface for an extended period of time - as, although it’s a hardy and non-porous material, it can still be damaged by extremely hot, acidic or corrosive liquids. The dense body of this material will help protect it against scratching, but we’d still recommend using chopping boards to keep your surfaces in pristine condition for longer.
Requesting a quote for a quartz worktop has never been easier using our online price estimator. Simply select the style you’d like to receive pricings for and complete our straightforward form.
