Choosing your new kitchen countertop is not a decision you need to take lightly. Put simply, the whole future appearance of your kitchen totally depends on the colour, finish, and material you opt for. Get this wrong, and you’re going to be replacing your worktop earlier than you would have envisaged – this is both costly in terms of money, and time also.
If you’re considering quartz, you’re probably aware that this is a very popular choice. The advantages of this strong natural stone are very wide reaching:
Quartz is non-porous – This means that zero maintenance is required because the stone doesn’t absorb water. Other stones, such as granite and marble will require sealing periodically, but quartz doesn’t require this at all. All you need to do in order to look after quartz is to clean it as you normally would, avoiding any harsh cleaning materials, such as fluids or scouring pads; warm, soapy water and a soft cloth is all you need.
Quartz is strong – You are getting 93% natural stone, with just 7% added in for the colour resin that you want. This means you are also getting a very strong and long-lasting option.
Quartz is highly stain, heat, and scratch resistant – Obviously nothing is 100% in any direction, but quartz is very unlikely to be damaged by any of the above, provided caution is taken.
Of course, we also know that quartz is available in various different colours, and that makes your decision a little more in-depth beyond choosing the material. You need to get the colour choice right, otherwise you’re going to be looking at a countertop which will be hard to decorate around in the future.
If you’re thinking of opting for a Compac quartz worktop, this is a wise choice. Compac are a highly regarded brand of quartz, and as such you are getting peace of mind in your purchase. On top of this, you’re also getting a lengthy warranty, depending on the product you purchase, which means you can rest easy in terms of the new addition to your kitchen.
Here are five of the most popular Compac quartz worktop colours, so you can see how you feel about popularity choices:
- Compac Alaska
- Compac Arena
- Compac Mica
- Compac Snow
- Compac Coco
These five colours are all very natural and neutral, which means you can easily mix and match around your worktop, and create a décor that is pleasing to you. Of course, this also means that you can redecorate during your worktop’s lifespan, and you won’t need to replace it too early. Fad colours, such as anything too bright and ‘in your face’ is going to be ultra-difficult to fit in with anything else, and flexibility in your décor is key.
Remember to head to a showroom stocking Compac quartz products and check out colours in person. Colours do react differently to artificial and natural lights, and you need to be happy with both sides of the coin when you’re spending a large amount of money on a kitchen countertop.
On top of this, shop around for the cost, because you could save cash if you’re savvy here. Compac aren’t the most expensive quartz worktop products on the market, but if you can save cash, all the better for you and your purse/wallet!
