Time for a change? Got worktops that need replacing?
Here, the team at The Marble Store take a look at 5 tell-tale signs it’s time to switch to quartz worktops.
5 signs it’s time for quartz
1. You’ve got kids
Like it or not, if you have kids – whatever their age – you need to take them into consideration when it comes to your kitchen choices.
High gloss unit with a sticky-fingered toddler? No, thank you. Glass shelving with a heavy-handed teen? Definitely not. And certainly, no easily damaged worktops with a youthful tribe knocking about the place.
So where does that leave you?
Easy. With quartz.
Quartz worktops are super durable and capable of withstanding anything family life can throw at them. Easy to work with, they can be crafted with rounded edges, minimising the chances of a nasty accident from collisions with sharply cut sides.
Yet, despite being easy for our master stonemasons to work with, granite is also super tough. Whilst we’d always recommend avoiding direct contact with hot pans, you don’t need to worry about irreparable damage if you do accidentally put one down without thought. Likewise, the latest ‘art’ session doesn’t need to leave you in a panic that your worktop will always be that shade of purple!
2. You like choice
When it comes to variety, quartz worktops offer it all – and then some!
Available in a complete rainbow of colours, you will quite literally be spoilt for choice – from classic shades of white, black, and cream right through to quirkier alternatives such as deep ruby red, pale blues, or vivid greens and oranges. You’ll even find attractive multi-colour options, and our personal favourite for a really fun kitchen – tutti-frutti!
Quartz worktops lend themselves to more intricate designs and fancy edging, so whatever it is you’re imagining for your kitchen, the chances are that quartz can make it a reality.
3. You’re a hygiene freak
It goes without saying that cleanliness and hygiene are essential in the kitchen.
If you’re keen to keep things extra clean, then quartz worktops are perfect. Not only are they easy to look after and maintain – all that’s needed is a wipe over with warm soapy water – but they are also non-porous. This means that the surface acts as a natural barrier to dirt and bacteria, preventing harmful nasties from becoming trapped beneath.
4. You’re a klutz in the kitchen
Messy cook, sloppy server, always spilling drinks and dropping utensils?
Unless you’re happy to live with visible signs of damage – like scratches, dents, and stains – you need a worktop that can take the strain and endure heavy-handed use. Making quartz the obvious choice.
Hardwearing and extremely durable, quartz won’t damage easily – nor will it hold stains.
5. You like a bargain
Perhaps one of the biggest factors when it comes to choosing a kitchen worktop is not how it will look, but how much it will cost.
Quartz has massively grown in popularity over recent years, and when it looks this good and offers so many favourable qualities, it’s easy to understand why.
We can’t pretend that it’s a budget option – it’s not. But it is, without question, a sensible and long-term investment. Offering all the style and longevity of more traditional stone surfaces such as granite and marble, but without the upkeep or the ongoing expense of resealing.
In our book, that makes quartz an unbeatable bargain.
