Why Granite And Quartz Make The Best Kitchen Worktops
When you’re attempting to create a new look for your kitchen, finding the perfect worktop is key. Having such a lot weighing on just one element however, can make finding the right one difficult and time-consuming. There are so many different worktop materials to choose from which makes choosing the right one even more of a challenge, especially when you need to take into consideration your lifestyle and the space you’re working with.
The Best Kitchen Worktops
The ideal kitchen worktop should be easy to maintain, durable and of course stylish. Here at The Only Way Is Granite, we know of only two worktop materials that really tick all of those boxes and those are granite and quartz. Both of course have their own advantages. While quartz worktops provide you with maintenance advantages that even nature itself wouldn’t be able to, granite of course offers the ability to increase the value of your home. To show just why granite and quartz make the best kitchen worktops, we’ve broken it down for you.
Quartz Kitchen Worktops
Quartz worktops are created using natural quartz which is one of the hardest minerals found in the earth. Put together with small quantities of glass or metallic flecks to create a little variety and the result is a very beautiful worktop. Quartz kitchen worktops are non-porous which means it doesn’t allow things such as bacteria and fluids to permeate. This makes it not only incredibly hygienic but stain resistant too, making them ideal for family life. It also means that granite worktops require no sealant whatsoever and as a result, are virtually maintenance free. Colour options are another amazing benefit of this amazing material. Unlike granite, the options for colours and pattern are almost endless allowing you to bring virtually any look to your kitchen that you desire.
Granite Kitchen Worktops
Granite worktops, along with quartz worktops, is one of the most popular choices out there. Very much like quartz, it’s incredibly resilient, making it very at home in a family household. Granite is a naturally made rock that gets cut into the desired shape and subsequently polished for use in homes. While it isn’t as resilient as quartz, requiring annual sealant to ensure it remains stain and bacteria resistant, this aside, it’s still very low on the maintenance side of things, requiring a simple cloth with warm water to ensure it keeps its shine. Being so strong, it’s able to resist the odd scratch as well as temperature changes.
