How to Get Any Colour For Your Kitchen Worktop

Author:vian Date:2/9/2009 9:37:43 PM Read:2531

A kitchen worktop could be, or become one of your prized possessions, but does nature offer you the colour of your dreams, the one that perfectly matches your design?

There are many types of stone available for a kitchen worktop surface; granite, marble, slate, wood, but with Natures variety, it can be sometimes hard to find a colour that exactly matches your decor.

How is it possible to get the colour you want?

Well, there can be an answer to this dilemma; Quartz stone!

Quartz stone or Quartzite is a man made stone for worktop surfaces and other stone products. Formed from quartz and bonding resins, this stone is then coloured to suit. With colours ranging from black to white and almost every colour in between, makes this type of stone a fantastic choice.

Will Quartz stone match my natural stone floor tiles?

If all you are looking for is a worktop and already have floor tiles and want your new Quartz stone worktop to match, then Quartz is the answer! Because Quartzite is available in almost any colour; getting your worktop to match the style of your floor or wall tiles is as easy as pie!

The problem with natural stone such as granite is that it is natural. Matching stone-for-stone can be hard; you may need additional stone for other purposes and finding a match could prove difficult - most natural stone will differ from batch to batch, but Quartz stone does not.

On the other hand; if you are looking for natural veining, then granite for a kitchen worktop could be a better choice.

With this said; effects can be applied to man-made stone that offer similar to that of natural stone and although a man-made product can never be the same as the real thing, some of its pros do out-weigh the cons.

How durable is Quartz stone?

Quartz stone, once formed is an extremely hard and durable, man-made stone. Due to its construct; made from quartz crystal, makes this particular man made product extremely hardy indeed!
