Stone benchtops undeniably offer a feeling of absolute luxury to a home. Unfortunately, natural stones such as marble and granite become quite expensive to fit in. However, if you wish to have that luxury look without having to spend much, engineered stone or quartz benchtop could be your best choice!
Quartz has become a popular choice for benchtops in modern homes due to its various positive attributes. Having been one of the most practical benchtop materials, this stone offers low maintenance and high durability. Moreover, it is also highly resistant to stains.

Why choose quartz benchtops?
Quartz has the appearance of natural stone without paying much cost. Because of its three-dimensional appearance and realistic finish, it’s been a favourite choice among builders, designers, and homeowners for a long time. It comes in different colours which allows you to choose the right countertop to match your existing décor perfectly.
Easy Care and Maintenance
One feature that distinguishes engineered stone from natural stone is its ease of cleaning. Because natural stone is porous, bacteria and debris can seep into the benchtop, making it difficult to clean. Engineered stone, on the other hand, is non-porous, which means it won’t absorb spilled liquid and can be wiped clean. The engineered stone’s surface will remain stain-resistant even after the sealer has worn off. Natural stone, on the other hand, needs to be sealed on a regular basis.
Bacteria have a hard time growing on quartz surfaces as they don’t absorb liquids. Furthermore, because many quartz benchtop installations do not include large/multiple joins, there is no place for grime to collect in seam areas.
Quartz does not scratch, making it convenient for you to use the countertop without worrying much. It allows you to cut food on it, however, it is suggested to use a chopping board so the counter doesn’t dull your knives.
Quartz is composed primarily of natural quartz that has been crushed and blended with binders and colourings. This combination provides a number of advantages, the most notable of which is its unparalleled strength. In terms of strength, this material is equivalent to natural stone such as granite, however, it is not as hard to touch.
