Why is quartz still the hottest kitchen trend?

Composite quartz worktops continue to grow in popularity, and this doesn’t surprise us. Quartz is no longer a luxury item but can be a reasonably priced investment for your home. With new colours, patterns and textures unveiled monthly, and the specifications continuously developing, the man-made surface now out-sells natural stones like granite.


Composite quartz was developed as a durable, low maintenance surface, perfect for any busy home or business. It’s stain, scratch, wipes clean and doesn’t need resealing annually unlike some natural stones. If you’re looking for a worktop material that needs nothing more than a wipe down, and won’t easily stain or scratch, quartz is for you.

Versatile Styles

There are many brands of composite quartz selling in the UK. Silestone and Caesarstone are two of the most well-known, each with over 50 designs. This means there’s a quartz to suit every kitchen style. From industrious dark greys, copper complimenting faux marbles and ultra-contemporary matte whites, you’re sure to find something to suit your style. Quartz is also popular because unlike natural stones which vary from slab-to-slab, quartz worktops are produced to be uniform providing a cleaner look.

Kitchen Islands

Quartz can be used to create eye-catching island units that provide your kitchen space with a beautiful focal point. Open plan kitchens are still as popular as ever, with island units dividing kitchen and living space. To make the island units a real feature, people are getting creative with their designs. Quartz can be mitred together to create seamless waterfall edges and unique shapes.


Many quartz brands produce their materials in both polished and matte finishes, meaning you can include multiple work surface textures in your kitchen. Create a glossy luxurious finish with a polished finish or a more rustic farmhouse or industrial style with matte or even flame brushed style.
