What is the difference between a Quartz Worktop and Granite Worktops?
Both materials are highly durable and a perfect choice for a kitchen work surface, both quartz & granite are affordable and will add beauty & value to your new kitchen, the bigger difference is granite is a natural stone whilst quartz is man-made, both still ideal for kitchen worktops.
So which one to choose?
Granite is what’s called an “igneous rock” which means it was once molten and as it cooled then became granite, making it a natural stone which is mined directly from the earth as a huge rock natural stone, cut into slices, polished by us to be used as granite worktops.
The quartz we use to make our worktops is made from crushed quartz mined directly from the earth and then mixed with polymer resin to make it an extremely hard and durable material, in the production process colour pigments are then added which enables us to offer many different colours or patterns to match your kitchen decor.
Advantages & Disadvantages
- Quartz is a harder material.
- As quartz is man-made so has more colour choices to choose from.
- Quartz can be damaged by extreme heat.
- Quartz if used in an outside environment can fade
- Quartz isn’t porous making it easier to keep quartz worktops bacteria-free.
- Granite has a more natural look.
- Worktops made from granite can have unsightly seams.
- Granite is prone to chipping if a heavy object is dropped onto its surface.
- Quartz gets its colour from pigments, so can come in every shade, tint or tone imaginable.
