Composite stone worktops
Composite stone worktops offer the best set of physical properties. They are tough and resistant to scratching, but we still recommend using a cutting board in order to protect your knives. These worktops practically lack absorbency, which eliminates the possibility of staining and makes the worktops both low-maintenance and highly hygienic.
In case of composite stone it is, however, important to avoid placing hot pots and pans on narrow strips of stone (e.g. around the sink), as sudden changes in temperature could cause the stone to crack. Quartz surfaces are easy to maintain – water, dish detergent and a cloth should usually suffice. A nonabrasive cream cleanser can be used to remove traces left by plastic or metal marks.

Quartz, also known as composite stone or engineered stone, is a man-made stone – as suggested by the name. This type of stone has many advantages, including a uniform and even colour as well as great physical properties, such as toughness, durability and the lack of pores that could absorb any substances. All this makes quartz extremely hygienic. More than 90% of composite stone is natural crushed stone material and the rest is glue, colouring agents and other additives used to enhance its physical properties. Quartz worktops can offer you a genuine interior design experience!
