The Kitchen Worktop Guide: What is Quartz?

Due to its durability, solid surface worktops are the number one choice when it comes to choosing a kitchen worktop.

With so many different solid surface worktops on the market offering an array of colours, textures and patterns we are spoilt for choice.  T

This can make the process of choosing which kitchen work surface is best for you a little more difficult.

In our kitchen worktop guide, we aim to provide the facts enabling you to make an informed decision for when it comes to you choosing your kitchen worktop.


Quartz is a compound made up of 90% natural quartz which makes it extraordinarily hard and resilient and perfect for kitchens. 

It is a non-porous material, meaning it doesn’t allow liquid to pass through the surface and it is highly resistant to stains, from coffee, wine and lemon juice to name just a few.
