Stones are still the most popular choices for kitchen worktops. Many homeowners are willing to invest a bit more in stone kitchen worktops and not have to replace them for decades. Stones are very durable and their worktops and countertops will last you forever. If you were shopping for stone kitchen worktops in Harrow, continue reading and find everything from stone types to prices and installation.
Stones are divided into two main groups: natural and manufactured stones. Manufactured stone are ones that are made in combination with other materials, such as resins. The best example of manufactured stone is Quartz. Natural stones don’t have added materials. They include Granite and Marble.
Since they are produced differently, they have some different characteristics. Quartz worktops are made as a combination of quartz stone, resins and pigments. Resins are forming a waterproof layer and making the worktops stain proof. Granite and marble are not stain-proof. Granite will resist most liquids, but some it won’t.
Granite and marble are more unique then quartz. They have unique patterns that are always unrepeatable. Quartz, in compression to that, has more uniformed patterns.
They are all very durable materials that will not break easily. They are easy to clean with just water and soap.
