In today’s hectic world, it can be a pleasurable diversion to look at the celebrity and luxury home re-fit magazines to see ‘how the other half live’, with their carefree and spacious lounges, kitchens and bathrooms. Yet for many UK householders that ‘dream’ look is now a reality for kitchens and bathrooms, through the installation of quality quartz worktops.
Changing a worktop to that of quartz means you can create both an effective working area and a main focal point for a room. As a consequence, many people who have installed quartz kitchen and bathroom worktops – such as those made from Compac Quartz – have commented on how much easier it is to help keep these rooms always looking their stunning best.
Quartz first and foremost is one of the hardest substances found on earth. When compacted with special dyes and resins to produce quartz stone worktops the result is a surface that is completely scratch-resistant, crack-resistant, stain-resistant, and heat-resistant. Furthermore, this modernisation of one of the most traditional minerals used throughout history means that, unlike granite worktops, quartz surfaces do not need sealing or treating before use.
Being impenetrable, quartz surfaces are also easy to clean, requiring only a quick wipe down with soapy water after each use.
In terms of aesthetics, quartz worktops are manufactured to a wide variety of colours and patterns, all equally stunning in appearance, and all guaranteed to be flawless in colour and texture.
Most would agree that provided the worktop is effective, it is easier to make a kitchen or bathroom look impressive.
