Here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen specialists. From your storage to the design of your new kitchen, we have the skills and the knowledge to help you create the perfect kitchen. One of the choices that is often overlooked, is the kitchen worktop. But this should not be the case. After all, the worktop surface needs to be more than suitable for food preparation, while also being incredibly stylish, in line with the rest of your kitchen. One of the best surfaces for kitchen worktops is quartz. But what make quartz so special? Well, this is our guide to the advantages of a quartz kitchen worktop.


In the kitchen environment, you need your surfaces to be non-porous. Not only is water a serious hazard to porous surfaces, but spillages also happen a lot. Porous surfaces, like hard wood and some natural stone, can absorb water and become stained easily. However, non-porous kitchen worktops are fully water resistant, and will not take on water damage. Quartz is created to be non-porous, which means that you don’t have to worry about treating your worktop or sealing it.

This also means that bacteria and germs cant be absorbed in your worktop, so quartz is also incredibly hygienic.


Strong and durable, quartz is the perfect material for a kitchen worktop. Because of it’s strength, it is impact resistant, and scratch resistant, so you don’t have to worry about sharp knives or heavy impacts damaging your worktop.


Available in a huge variety of colours, quartz can suit any kitchen style or theme. From the most traditional to the most contemporary of kitchens, quartz can make a real impact. From neutral colours like beiges, creams and browns, to monochrome options and other colours like blues, greens and reds, quartz kitchen worktops can be a great way to add character to your kitchen.
