Why Are White Quartz Countertops So Popular?

White quartz countertops are growing in popularity and for good reason; they’re a clean and modern design choice in any home. They’re incredibly durable, virtually maintenance free and the variety available even within one colour spectrum makes it the ideal choice for a kitchen worktop. When compared to other countertop materials, quartz is considered fairly new. It’s the modern addition to the countertop family but has made it as one of the most popular choices but just what is it exactly that’s driven it to the top of the countertop charts? Let’s take a look a little closer at quartz countertops and their amazing qualities.

Why Everyone Loves A White Quartz Countertop

When compared to other countertop materials, quartz is considered fairly new. It’s the modern addition to the countertop family but has made it as one of the most popular choices but just what is it exactly that’s driven it to the top of the countertop charts? Let’s take a look a little closer at quartz countertops and their amazing qualities.

Durable Kitchen Worktops

Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in the world: FACT. It reaches a 7 on the Mohs hardness scale and is only beaten by topaz, diamond and corundum. This gives quartz a great edge when being compared to other worktop materials, especially natural stones such as granite. Most quartz worktops are man-made or engineered stone, which means it has all the durability of the mineral with the added bonus of not needing to be sealed. They also happen to be non-porous which allows them to withstand almost anything that’s thrown at them. From spills to glancing heat and staining liquids, quartz can withstand it.

Low Maintenance Kitchen Worktops

Kitchen worktops get used and abused. They’re akin to floors in the household with heavy traffic on a daily basis. While our floors are beaten constantly by shoes, your worktops take the brunt of knives, plates, saucepans, cups and whatever else you pick up and throw on there. From appliances to photo frames, phones and pocket change, the worktop takes the force of near enough everything in the home so it needs to be tough enough to withstand it without requiring a touch up every five minutes. White quartz worktops are the best as they are non-porous and tough which means they require no sealing and no protection to stay looking amazing. Just a simple wipe with warm soapy water is all it takes to keep it looking amazing.

Variety In Design

Because quartz worktops are man-made, even one colour spectrum can provide a huge amount of variety in design; from variety in texture to finish. Some worktops can be fine while others are coarser. The finer end of the design spectrum will usually provide a smooth and somewhat uniform finish. The courser worktops will tend to add more variety.
