Make your interior distinct
Canvastone’s engineered quartz countertops can reinvigorate the appearance of your kitchen or bathroom, and they bring several advantages that purely natural stone products can’t offer.
Countertops form a continuous surface, with a sink or sometimes two basins, that runs above storage cabinets in bathrooms, kitchens, and pantries in offices. In the kitchen, appliances such as a fridge or washing machine are often found beneath a worktop too.
Popular countertops in Singapore include stainless steel, laminate, glass, tiles, solid surface man-made materials, natural stone, and engineered stone such as quartz.
Artificial quartz countertops contain about 90% natural stone quartzite, crushed and mixed with resin and other additives. The manufacturing process makes quartz composite countertops less porous and more durable than the original stone.
Quartz options are varied
Manufactured quartz countertops are available in a wide range of colours, including blue, green, beige, cream, and red, as well as black and white.
Quartz counters also come with a varied selection of finishes and profile edges. Common finishes include polished and honed, while popular edging profiles include square and bevelled.

For the majority of home-owners, the principal factors in their choice of worktop material are: cost, durability, functionality, visual appeal, and hygiene.
Quartz worktops typically cost about the same as granite surfaces. However, some natural stones, like onyx, will be far costlier than quartz.
The curing process in the manufacture of engineered quartz worktops makes them more resistant to wear and tear than granite. Manufactured quartz is also stain resistant and waterproof, without the need for sealing.
Quartz worktops will last a lifetime, with minimal care. They don’t need special cleaning products; just wash them down with a mild detergent.
Engineered stone like quartz can’t equal the elegance of natural stones, but they can still be a stylish focal point in your kitchen.
Quartz is non-toxic and non-allergenic, and its low level of porosity resists the accumulation of harmful bacteria, mould, and mildew.
Case study: Pros and cons of a quartz work surface
When Ashleigh Wong was renovating her kitchen and weighing up quartz countertop pros and cons, she discovered that quartz isn’t as resilient to heat as some natural stone surfaces and that it lacks the sense of uniqueness created by the varied veining and patterning of natural stones.
Nevertheless, in the end, she opted for quartz, mainly because it’s more resistant to stains and scratches, and it resists bacteria growth.
This material also gave her a more extensive colour palette to choose from. She selected a red quartz worktop, with a polished finish and bevelled edging, to provide a prominent centrepiece in her new kitchen.
For Ashleigh, the greater uniformity of the patterning of quartz, while not being everyone’s cup of tea, suited her design style preferences. The lack of a high level of heat resistance didn’t bother her either, as she’s always careful to avoid placing hot pans directly onto kitchen surfaces.
