Quartz Kitchen Countertops – Pros and Cons.

Quartz Kitchen Countertops

The choice of kitchen surface is as important, if not more important, than the choice of facades, as it will not only be looked at, but also touched every day. Details such as the surface material can drastically change how the kitchen is used and what is paid attention to, for example a solid wood surface will require more attention, you can’t put hot elements on it and you have to watch out for water. So how to find the right surface? Most of the time, the choice should be based on your own habits and how much you are prepared to maintain and care for your kitchen. Here is a brief overview of quartz surfaces and why you should consider them as a great alternative to other materials.


  • Very strong material
  • Quartz is antibacterial
  • Easy to look after
  • Large choice of colours and patterns


  • Higher costs
  • May be cooler to the touch

Quartz is an excellent alternative to solid wood, laminate or even other natural stone surface materials. Quartz has properties that are hard to find in other materials. Quartz is waterproof, you can put hot objects on quartz surfaces without worrying about stains or discolouration, it is extremely easy to maintain and it takes effort to scratch a quartz surface.

One of the most eye-catching elements of quartz surfaces is not the set of properties, but the overall appearance. The look of natural stone fits into virtually any home interior and gives it a special feel. It’s also easy to care for and easy to clean, so quartz surfaces are only becoming more relevant!

But, as we have already mentioned, every material has its drawbacks. Quartz surfaces will definitely be more expensive than laminate or solid wood surfaces and that makes perfect sense. If price is not a factor, then this material will complement any home perfectly! It should be mentioned that quartz surfaces do not have the pleasant warmth of, for example, solid wood, which brings cosiness to a room. Quartz is comparatively colder, cool to the touch.

Quartz Kitchen Countertops – right for you?

Quartz surfaces offer a wide range of colours and pattern variations. The surfaces are easy to clean and resistant to scratches and heat, which is particularly useful for every home cook. A stone-type surface will feel cooler to the touch than other materials and will give the design an industrial feel.
