White Quartz Worktops for Kitchen Work Surfaces – Pros & Cons

/ / Uncategorized

Quartz is one of the first choices of many homeowners looking to renovate the kitchen. The reason for that is that quartz is more affordable than other stones, but it has similar performances.

Have you already considered white quartz for your new kitchen worktops but you need more information about it? In this article, we will help you to decide whether white quartz worktops are for you.


1. Non-porous surface

Quartz has a completely non-porous surface that prevents liquids from absorbing. You will never have to worry about staining, even with white quartz, because it is highly resistant to it.

2. Easy to maintain

Another contribution of the non-porous surface is the ease of maintenance. Cleaning is handled with just soap and water. Quartz worktops do not need sealing, unlike natural stones.

3. Variety of patterns

There is not just one white quartz colour, but many. There are several brands available and each has its own characteristic white. Some are solid colours and others have rich detailing that is reflected in veining, granulation or splashes of other colour.

4. Durability

Quartz is one of the most durable stones found in nature- it will handle high pressure without breaking or cracking. Because of this, it will make a smart and long-term investment. Getting quartz worktops means that you will not have to worry about the replacement for another 25 years.

5.  Resistant to scratches

Quartz is not scratch proof but is because of its density resistant to scratching. Cutting directly on quartz worktops will not damage it, but it can dull your knives.


1. Spills are more visible on white quartz

Although quartz is highly resistant to staining, some liquids like coffee or wine can leave a mark when not removed on time. In such cases, it will be more visible on white then darker quartz, so make sure to remove the spills on time.

2. Sensitive to chemicals

Quartz is sensitive to chemicals that contain bleach or ammonia. You should avoid such chemicals for cleaning and just use soap and water. If such chemical accidentally comes in contact with your worktops, neutralize its effect with water.

3. UV sensitive

Quartz is made of 93% natural quartz and 7% resin. The resins make it UV unstable, for which reason quartz’s colour may fade over time. For that reason quartz is also not recommended for outdoor use.
