What is a quartz worktop?

Quartz worktops are a form of engineered stone that are made from ground-up particles of quartz stone bound together with plastic resins to create a non-porous, durable material.

Interestingly, a quartz worktop is not made of 100% quartz, with the exact proportion depending on the worktop you choose. Most will be between 90-99% quartz.

One of the big benefits of quartz over a natural stone is that the engineering process stabilises the material to make it much sturdier and more reliable to work with. Natural stones can tend to be a little unpredictable due to impurities and imperfections.

Why choose quartz worktops?

With a variety of worktops available, you might be torn between quartz, granite, marble, wood or a number of other materials. Below are a number of the great reasons to choose quartz for your kitchen worktop.

Low maintenance

A quartz worktop is really easy to maintain and only requires your usual standard of daily cleaning. There are no special treatments, lotions or potions needed to keep it looking its best. Top tip – for extra shine you can use a simple window cleaner product.

Stain resistant

Quality quartz worktops are non-porous, which means they’re extremely resistant to stains. And thanks to the way quartz is made you won’t need to keep resealing them like marble or granite worktops.

Scratch resistant

Quartz is naturally scratch resistant, so there’s no worry of marking the worktop and damaging its appearance with daily use. Although it doesn’t mark easy, make sure you don’t expose your quartz worktop to extreme heat to avoid damage.

Quartz worktop optionsDurable

As an engineered stone surface, quartz offers top notch durability and is a very sturdy surface to have in your kitchen. Quartz is also much less prone to being chipped or cracked, unlike granite or marble worktops.

Custom options

Quartz is one of the most customisable materials for a worktop. You can get quartz made in a wide range of colours and patterns to suit the specific design of your kitchen and complement the style of your home.


Thanks to its non-porous properties, quartz is excellent for hygiene in the kitchen as there’s nowhere for germs and bacteria to collect and grow. That makes quartz a perfect choice for a surface you’ll be using for food preparation.

Long lasting colour

Quartz doesn’t fade over time so it will keep its colour for years to come. Regular use won’t affect the colours or patterns, so you can use your worktop to your heart’s content without worrying about it looking prematurely aged.

Useful quartz worktop checklist

  • Measure your kitchen worktop to calculate the total length of quartz you’ll need. If working from designs, use them to work out the worktop measurements.
  • Research your options for different types of quartz worktop to suit your kitchen’s interior design.
  • Speak to your local quartz worktop specialists for their professional advice and accurate quotes.
  • Shop around for fair and competitive quartz worktop prices.
  • Always hire a tradesperson with relevant experience and ask to see examples of their work.
