Quartz counters & countertops
We add a touch of distinction.
Quality supplier that will get you the best engineered quartz countertops rivalling natural stone surfaces
The best 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.
Apart from price, chief deliberations in selection of a countertop are durability, functionality, hygiene, and aesthetics. Popular countertops in Singapore include stainless steel, laminate, glass, tiles, solid surface man-made materials, natural stone, and engineered stone.
More than 90% of artificial quartz countertops contain the 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.
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.
A winning combination of nature and technology
Combining the beauty of nature with the technological ingenuity of humans, synthetic quartz countertops are as strong as granite worktops, but are able to withstand greater levels of wear and tear, to the extent that they’ll likely last a lifetime.
Quartz is a product with minimal impact on the environment: the natural quartzite from which it’s manufactured is an abundant material, and the end product is non-allergenic and non-toxic.
A further appeal of man-made quartz countertops is their wide choice of colours, patterning, and textures, which are more consistent than that of natural stone.
The surface appearance of engineered quartz counters depends on how the original quartzite was ground. Finely-ground quartz will have a smooth look, while a coarse grind will produce a flecked appearance. Colours and patterns are also available that mimic natural stone like granite or marble.
Engineered quartz is ideal for countertops because it’s hard, dense, resistant to water, scratches and staining, and impervious to acidic products such as vinegar and fruit juices.
All these also make quartz countertops easy to take care of: they don’t require any sealants, and can be cleaned just by washing with soap and warm water. However, abrasive cleaning products should be avoided because they can dull the surface.
Quartz counters are generally priced on a par with natural granite surfaces.
