Worktops are very much central to the design of your kitchen and with so many options now available, finding the ideal surface to compliment your new kitchen perfectly, shouldn’t be too difficult.
Worktops, Splashbacks & Upstands
Quartz represents a great alternative to natural materials and its physical properties mean it’s a hard wearing and durable material ideal for kitchen worktops.
This man-made material contains 93% natural mineral. In order to achieve the desired colour and consistency, quartz is combined with resin binder and colourants (7%). When comparing quartz and granite worktop qualities are similar but not identical.
One advantage of quartz is with uniform structure and extensive selection of colours that allows designing a personalised kitchen. Among light shades, white is particularly popular because there is no pure white rock (granite) available in nature.
A popular choice in new kitchens due to its natural beauty and durability. A granite worktop will maintain its diamond polished finish for years.
Sourced from all over the world and ideal for that special surface in your kitchen, each slab of stone is one of a kind with its own characteristics and colouring, formed millions of years ago deep below the Earth’s surface.
