Benefits of wood worktops and quartz worktops, select your worktop carefully

Posted by juanoliv3 on December 21st, 2015

It is not often that we hear somebody getting a wood worktop, but what looks classier than wood? However, if you don’t have the time or resources to keep it looking beautiful, what do you do? Quartz worktops can be the solution to you in this case. In the following paragraphs we will look at the benefits of both wood and quartz as raw materials for worktop construction. Kitchen is where you may need to get together a sandwich in a hurry or you feel like trying that new recipe you read about the other day. Your worktop should be supportive of all kinds of experimentations, initiatives and cooking ventures.

Solid hardwood wood worktops for kitchen

Wood is classy, timeless and elegant – whether for furniture or for worktops, there cannot be a better material than wood. It looks great with any décor, be it traditional or contemporary. It can last for generations. All that you need to do is look out for any harsh effects of usage or wear and tear due to weather changes. Any valuable objects require a lot of care to be kept at a good condition. So, wood worktops can also have the same sheen and polished appearance provided you can keep it in proper shape and be a bit careful while working in your kitchen. The solid hardwood material is available in varying grains and colours and gives a great appearance to your kitchen. 

Quartz worktops – looks great and functions even better

If you don’t have time for a lot of maintenance hassles and want a solid and contemporary look for your kitchen and bathroom then you can always go for quartz worktops. They have the look and feel of granite with benefits of easier availability, greater choices and lesser costs. Since they are synthetically engineered with a suitable mix of quartz and polymer resin, they come with the benefits of both and hence are a preferred choice for kitchen worktops. When you are in a hurry to put together a power breakfast, you will want quartz worktops to help you in concentrating in the preparation rather than scratches and other issues. Quartz goes down pretty well with the modern lifestyle, with the shortage of time and focus on saving as much as possible. 

As mentioned earlier, if you think you have enough time to keep wood worktops at the top of their condition all throughout, then there can be nothing that may look better than this. It gives a warm and homely feel to the kitchen. Got no time for all this? Don’t worry. We have engineered quartz worktops that give you the look and feel of granite minus all the maintenance trouble. This also costs lesser and there is greater variety than what you will get for wood. Think about it, and when you have decided, give your kitchen that much needed refurbishment with a brand new worktop. Just a few factors need to be considered and then the decision taken so that you can get your renovated kitchen before the festive season begins and guests start knocking at your door.

For a classy look choose wood worktops and for low maintenance pick quartz worktops.
