When you’re choosing the perfect look for your kitchen it can be difficult to decide what style, colour and most importantly material, is right for your space. Your ideal worktop should be durable, require very little maintenance and most importantly be unique which is why Quartz is one of the most popular choices.
Quartz countertops are composed of natural quartz which is one of the hardest minerals on the Earth, rating an impressive 7 on the Moh’s hardness scale. To create your kitchen countertop, 90% ground quartz is combined with a 10% mixture of resins, polymers and pigments to provide the stunning granite-like surface. But for many, what makes quartz a perfect material for a kitchen countertop, other than its appearance, is that it is non-porous. This is perfect for food prep areas as it does not facilitate the growth of bacteria and is resistant against stains- making kitchen clean up easy. Simply spray warm water mixed with a few drops of antibacterial detergent onto the surface and wipe clean with a soft cloth!
It is an obvious choice for many designers with it being such as flexible material to work with. Quartz comes in a wide variety of natural colours such as black, white, various shades of brown as well as brighter options such as blue, gold and red. Undoubtedly whatever colour you choose, it is a material that will breathe new life into your home and definitely become an eye-catching centrepiece for your kitchen.
Quartz countertops are not only a beautiful and contemporary choice for a kitchen countertop, they are also a very practical choice. It is not only durable but easy to maintain and from a design perspective, it is a material that can be moulded to meet whatever colour scheme your space has. Undoubtedly it is the perfect choice for any modern living space.
