One of our most asked questions is: what kitchen benchtop won’t stain?

Well, here is the answer: a quartz kitchen benchtop

When you have a quartz kitchen benchtop installed, spills like red wine wipe up so easily with a damp cloth, leaving absolutely no marks, whatsoever. It’s non-porous, so you don’t have to worry about the growth of bacteria, mold or mildew.

Quartz is more durable than granite, Or marble kitchen Benchtops.

It’s one of the hardest materials on earth. In 1812, meteorologist, Frederick Moss established a reference scale of ten common minerals ranked in order of increasing hardness.

Only diamond, sapphire and topaz are harder than quartz.

Quartz needs no sealing or polishing like granite or marble. And because of its durability, it will always remain glossy and smooth.

In 2014, a consumer report rated quartz- this kind of surface- as the number one top rated kitchen benchtop surface. So, if you’re designing or remodeling your kitchen, quartz is a great benchtop material to consider. 

And I’m very proud to say that our benchtop are manufactured right here in Australia.

Once you’ve decided on the material and the colour for your benchtop, you need to choose what kind of edge profile that you would like.

You can choose from

  • a beveled edge
  • an eased edge
  • a bull nose edge
  • an OG edge.

If you live in a more traditional house and have beautiful moldings and architectural details, the OG probably would be the one to choose.

When designing or updating your kitchen, consider using quartz as a back splash or for surfacing an entire wall. Well, it’s so easy to clean up if something spatters on it, just wipe it off.

And with a shelf in front of it, it’s a beautiful back drop for all kinds of items. So, functional and beautiful, quartz is a great option for any kitchen.
