Worktop Articles ~ Directory

Our growing directory of worktop articles intends to provide a comprehensive overview and guidance of all that is needed to know about worktops. With differences between natural and engineered stone - these worktop articles hope to help with practical and design aspects for any worktop material. We hope that you find the information provided in our worktop articles sufficient enough to help with any decisions, and that they provide information that seems amiss elsewhere.
Quartz Articles Kitchen Islands

Kitchen Islands

Quartz kitchen islands are a perfect center piece for any large space, a statement piece either with a plain design or with a book matched vein.

Articles Engineered Quartz Worktops

Engineered Quartz

Manipulation of naturally resistant minerals by human-kind in an attempt to improve, through ingenuity and for practical use. The Breton company in northeast Italy, developed the technology to create engineered quartz in 1963. Since then, manufacturing processes have advanced to produce a composition of minerals and resins perfected to produce surfaces that are unique in strength and durability. Engineered Quartz is primarily used for what we know in the industry as quartz worktops.

Best kitchen Worktop Articles

Best Kitchen Worktop?

How do you decide which is the best kitchen worktop? perhaps reading this quartz worktop article may help! Whatever you decide, you will want a worktop that will last for years, durable, tough with all the quartz worktop resistances needed. I also presume that your best kitchen worktop choice must be low maintenance and easy to clean? Well, maybe there is such a surface which has all that and more... Bacterial resistance, stylish designs, and a wide choice of colours, oh and I nearly forgot, lower in cost by comparison for a kitchen worktop.

Articles Quartz Worktop Resistances


Mimicking natural rocks from which the quartz content is derived, in colour and design, but also in its ability to withstand the elements. Quartz worktop resistances are key to the best choice kitchen surface, but does it have the acclaim that will be of benefit? All worktops come at a cost, so it is essential that you get the full value for many years. In an attempt to answer most questions: will it scratch, withstand heat from pots and pans, can it break? Quartz worktop resistances surely are something thats worth looking into.

Splashbacks Upstands Articles


Quartz upstands are the most popular addition and finishing touch. The complimenting trim that hides joins between worktops and walls, Protects from splashes and spills. Quartz upstands are not only neat, tidy, and aesthetic. They work well in combination with tiles, windowsills and hob splashbacks. With the same resistances as your worktop, and cut from the remaining material after cutting your worktop lengths, they are low in cost.

Solid Surfaces Articles

Solid Surfaces

What are solid surfaces but worktops that are solid enough to carry out the job at hand? Put simply solid surfaces are what allow us to lay, sit, stand, and lean, let alone anything else we need to do or make. Stemmed from our need to express ourselves creatively we manipulate nature in an effort to achieve more to create more.

Crystalline Quartz

The extraordinary diversity and qualities of Crystalline Quartz reaches further into everyday living and the mechanisms of life than most people are aware of. All this, and prior to being made into a quartz worktop surface that has the same qualities.
Articles Limestone Marble Geology

Limestone Marble Geology

How Limestone is formed and then transformed into Marble can appear complex, however, specific chemicals and organisms the process and the mineral composition. Sedimentary rock Limestone is formed primarily from skeletal remains of organisms and fragments of eroded rock. Metamorphic Rock Marble is formed from limestone that undergoes metamorphism requiring high pressure and heat.
Articles Formation Of Granite

Formation of Granite

Brief granite geology overview regarding the formation of intrusive igneous rock type 'Granite'. Initially from magma cooled and crystallized deep below the earths surface, granite is found throughout the world. Processed and mined for a multitude of purposes including for megalithic construction throughout early civilisation (unwritten history), and with today's modern machinery.
Articles Quartzite Geology

Quartzite Geology

Aptly named and due to its high quartz content, Quartzite is an extremely hard material and comprising of greater than 90% quartz but no less than 80%. As one of the largest and purest concentration of silica in the earths crust, quartzite is metamorphic in origin and formed when Chert or Quartz Rich Sandstone metamorphoses when exposed to high temperatures and pressures.
