Quartz Worktops – Don’t Be Penny Wise and Pound Foolish
When renovating your kitchen, choosing a new worktop is normally at the forefront of your list of priorities. Your kitchen surfaces are one of the main parts of the room, immediately noticeable and if they do not work well with the other colours or materials in your kitchen, the overall appearance and feel of the room can suffer. Quartz worktops are a brilliant choice for kitchens, with their immense durability and unique patterns ensuring that you get a surface that not only looks great, but stands the test of time, too.
However, it is not as simple as picking the colour you would like and putting it into your kitchen; it is important that you choose the best quality quartz available, and the temptation to opt for a cheaper quartz surface can end up costing you a lot more in the long run. Here at Touchstone Worktops we are proud to stock a wide range of beautiful, durable quartz worktops from the world’s leading manufacturers. We supply and install only the finest quality quartz, ensuring that you get value for money in every aspect when you buy from us.
Silestone is one of our best-selling quartz ranges, and we are very proud of our status as Gold-Level Approved Silestone Fabricators, allowing us to have exclusive access to their fantastic Ocean Series collection. This six-piece collection, coupled with their diverse range of colours and styles helps them stand out as one of the market leaders in quartz worktops. Cosentino’s Eco range combines both aesthetics and build quality with sustainability, as the name suggests. The surfaces are made from 75% recycled materials, providing an eco-friendly alternative to traditional quartz worktops without compromising the quality and beauty that makes quartz so popular.
The others brands we use include Caesarstone, which has enjoyed enormous growth, with stocks rising by 115% since it was put on the market in 2012. This is testament to the quality of their product: long-lasting, beautiful quartz surfaces that are available in a variety of shades and colours. As well as Caesarstone, our Quartz Compac and Arenastone catalogues showcase the best in quartz worktops, providing our customers with a vast choice of beautiful surfaces.
A sticking point for some people when it comes to quartz worktops could be the price. The average price of quartz worktops may be higher than laminate and wooden surfaces, but the extra expenditure is more than worth it. There has been an influx of cheaper quartz worktops from China, but the reason for the lower price is the lower quality. The differences in quality may not be noticeable at first, but over time their poor build quality will make itself known and you will soon find yourself having to replace your worktop.
Here at Touchstone Worktops, we only stock the finest quality materials from the leading quartz worktop manufacturers. We have colours and styles to match the décor of any kitchen, and you will benefit from our expert service from the choosing of your worktop right down to the installation in your kitchen.
