5 Reasons Why Quartz Is The Perfect Countertop Material

5 Reasons Why Quartz Is The Perfect Countertop Material

As one of the most hardworking elements in your kitchen, it’s essential to choose the right surface solution for your countertops. Not only does it serve as an area to prep your meals, but also offers up extra worktop space to store all your cookware, utensils and heavy appliances. Hence, you’d want to make sure that you invest in an all-around, highly durable material that’s built for your needs.

A great option to consider is engineered quartz. Unlike natural stone, this man-made stone is engineered from a mix of quartz, resins and pigments. The result? A non-porous, incredibly hardy and resilient surface that doesn’t require any sealing, which makes it an ideal choice for kitchen countertops.

And that’s not even all! Read on to find out why you should consider installing quartz countertops for your home.

1. Durability

For those who fancy the classic marble look, you might be surprised to know that it isn’t exactly the most practical choice. Marble is significantly more fragile than other natural stones which makes it prone to scratches, and its delicate, porous structure also makes it highly susceptible to stains.

That’s where engineered quartz comes in. For unparalleled durability, look no further than Caesarstone, the leading manufacturer of premium quartz surfaces. Made with up to 90% natural quartz, Caesarstone surfaces are extremely durable and resistant to heat, scratches, and all sorts of impact, so rest assured that it’s capable of withstanding a whole lot of everyday abuse. So, if you’re someone who does a lot of heavy cooking, a quartz countertop from Caesarstone might be right for you.

2. Maintenance

What makes quartz a real winner in our books, is that it’s an absolute breeze to maintain and looks great with minimal effort. Thanks to its virtually non-porous and dense nature, you never have to worry about staining. What’s more, quartz surfaces don’t require any form of sealing, treating or polishing so it will stay pristine for longer. To clean up any accidental spills, all you need is just a simple wipe down with soap and warm water to ensure that your surfaces are kept in tip-top condition.

But don’t just take our word for it. Our Materially team did an in-house test on a couple of countertop samples with Caesarstone, where we left two common staining culprits – coffee and wine – on the surface for an hour. Based on our findings, we found out that it was superbly easy to remove the liquids with just mild detergent. No stains left behind!


3. Aesthetic appeal

Functionality aside, this versatile material certainly isn’t lacking in the style department. The beauty of quartz surfaces is that it comes in a wide array of colours, patterns and textures to complement your desired aesthetic without having to worry about durability.

5. Customisation

Mixing and matching the right slabs for your countertops might be a costly and time-consuming affair, but it doesn’t have to be! Most quartz manufacturers offer custom stone slabs that are available in various sizes, colours and patterns to fit your unique needs, allowing you to achieve a more personalised look for your home.
