Granite vs. Quartz Worktops: Which is Right for Your Kitchen?

Granite vs. Quartz Worktops: Which is Right for Your Kitchen?

When it comes to choosing the perfect worktops for your kitchen, two materials reign supreme: granite and quartz. Both offer beauty, durability, and a luxurious feel, but each has its unique characteristics to consider. Let’s break down the key differences to help you make the decision that’s right for your home and lifestyle.

Natural Beauty: Granite

Granite is a 100% natural stone, quarried directly from the earth. This means every slab is unique, showcasing the intricate patterns and colours formed over millions of years. Granite offers a timeless elegance that complements a wide range of kitchen styles.

Engineered Strength: Quartz

Quartz, on the other hand, is an engineered stone. It combines crushed quartz with resins and pigments. This manufacturing process allows for greater control over colour consistency and pattern possibilities. Quartz is often praised for its incredible durability and resistance to stains and scratches.

Maintenance Matters

Granite, being a porous stone, does require periodic sealing to maintain its resistance to stains. Sealing is a relatively straightforward DIY task or can be handled by a professional. Quartz, being non-porous, never needs sealing and is generally considered to be slightly lower maintenance.

Investment and Style

Both granite and quartz are considered premium worktop materials, adding value to your home. Pricing can vary depending on the specific colour and pattern. In terms of style, granite tends to lean towards classic elegance, while quartz can also offer bolder, more modern looks.
