One of the most commonly used materials for worktops is granite. Like quartz, this material is also very resilient. Granite is a natural rock that is cut in its natural state and is then polished for use in homes. Maintenance after each use is suggested to prevent staining with granite. To clean granite, use warm water and soap to help keep its shine.
Such a strong material is difficult to scratch and is able to resist temperature changes. Because it is natural stone, granite doesn’t provide as wide of a range of colour options and each piece is different, therefore, often times kitchens need to be planned around the slab that is chosen. That being said, planning a kitchen around a granite worktop is not always a simple task. We have chosen the best varieties of granite from quarries all over the world in order to offer you an extensive range of products to choose from.
Quartz worktops are fabricated from natural quartz, one of the hardest minerals found in the Earth, and small amounts of glass or metallic flecks are added to create variety, resulting in beautiful worktops. Other advantages of quartz is that it is a non-porous material, its texture does not allow bacteria to grow and resists against stains, protecting your family and making kitchen clean-up easy. For this reason, quartz worktops never need to be sealed.
Aside from the durability that quartz provides, this material is beautiful and its wide variety of colour options are sure to catch your eye. Your options are nearly endless as quartz ranges from natural colours such as whites, blacks and browns to other colours such as golds or blues. The design of a quartz worktop not only brings character to your kitchen but offers performance advantages that exceed other traditional materials.
Acrylic is a homogenous and solid mineral-filled acrylic polymer material that is completely non-porous hence it’s commercial grade anti-bacterial rating. It does not require the application of a sealant to maintain protection. General day-to-day maintenance is easy and does not require expensive specialist products.
Acrylic surfaces can be maintained effortlessly by wiping with a Sunlight dishwashing liquid/warm water compilation. Use the same concentration as you would for standard dishwashing. Buff with a dry towel to avoid smearing. Ammonia based cleansers (such as glass cleaners) can be used sparingly to achieve a high-gloss and restore shine if desired. If you wish, you can occasionally disinfect the surface with diluted household bleach (5/1 water/bleach solution).
