For this reason, quartz worktops are also suited to bathrooms and wet rooms.
When considering a quartz worktop there a few factors that all home owners will want to consider. Primarily you will need to know that is is hard-wearing, looks good, is easy to maintain and stain resistant. Although the same might be said of a variety of counter surface materials, what makes this option stand out is the great array of colours available and the fact it doesn’t require resealing like granite. We are confident that our options including Arenastone, Compac, and Okite will meet your needs.
It might seem a novel concept to have a worktop made from man made crystals, but this technology allows more variety and a stronger result than might be found naturally. The process of hydrothermal synthesis melds together individual crystals using high heat and pressure. A relatively new ability, geologists began this practice in the 1840’s but it wasn’t until much later a commercial use was applied. In modern day engineering it is formed using mainly ground quartz and a small amount of colourings and polymers. The end product is extremely hard and depending on the level of grinding can have a speckled or smooth appearance.
One of the main reasons for quartz popularity in kitchens and utility rooms as well as bathrooms, is the low level of cleaning required. It won’t stain easily and resists taking on strong odours. You won’t need expensive shop bought cleaning agents as simple hot water and a soft cloth will solve most spills. It is probably no surprise however, that it should not be subjected to extremely harsh substances such as paint, oven cleaners and other corrosive chemicals as these may well damage the surface. Stand out brands we can provide such as Samsung, Silestone and Cimstone are all made to a highly durable standard.
As a frequently installed work surface, purchasers are always keen on the glossed, shiny effect that this hardened crystal composite provides. For this reason it’s a great light reflector and does well to bounce light around an otherwise dim or small room. As with natural stones like marble, you’ll find this to be a cool surface to work with, perfect for a food preparation area or in a room that sees a lot of heat such as a WC or utility. Cooking enthusiasts often see this as a primary influence on their decision such is the renown of it’s cooling properties, particularly for things like rolling pastry or defrosting goods.
The great thing about choosing this for your home is the wide choice of colours and finishes available to you. You might be hoping to match a wall colour, or provide a striking contrast to really lift the room. Luckily there are numerous styles that will work well against anything from white, shaker-style kitchens to black tiled bathrooms. You can go for a creamy, marble vein appearance to a light and bright sparkling fleck. Whatever the tone you can be assured of a gleaming and resilient finish that will add a personal, sophisticated touch to your interior.
