Quartz has quickly become one of the most south-out materials for work surfaces for both kitchens and bathrooms. The reason for this is that quartz has many good qualities that are of value in everyday use while keeping a reasonable price. Some of these qualities are stain and scratch resistance, low level of maintenance, a variety of options to choose from…If you have already decided for quartz work surfaces, you probably already know that. In this article, we will help you select the best quartz work surface for you.
1. Visit the showroom
Seeing in person is not the same as seeing online; although the colour can be pretty accurate online, you can’t touch and feel the material. Therefore, for best accuracy of the colour and texture of the material, we advise you to visit our showroom.
2. Ask for a free sample
Quartz has an enormous range of styles, which can get confusing at times. If you have a few different picks we can provide you with free samples that you can mix and match with your kitchen cabinets.
3. Consider options on both side of the colour spectrum
Take both light and dark toned samples with you; you’ll never know how good a combination can be until you pair it with your cabinets.
4. Mix and match
Your kitchen or bathroom doesn’t have to be uniform; you can choose 2 or even 3 colours for work surfaces. For example, you can choose a very unique style for the kitchen island and for the rest choose a classic option.
5. Think about the overall appeal of the kitchen
Do you like a contemporary style or traditional? Do you like harmony or contrast? Based on that you can narrow down the choices: if you like harmony, go with the colour that is similar to your cabinets and if you like contrast, go with the colour that is on the other side of the colour spectrum.
6. Consider unusual options
Quartz has some of the most interesting colour picks for work surfaces like orange, magenta and similar. These colours are not very often seen in kitchen or bathroom designs, but that doesn’t mean they are bad choices. They can give your kitchen or bathroom a unique personalized appeal.
7. Think of colours that you already have
Look at the colours that you already have in your house, and see which one is the most represented. That colour might be the safest choice.
8. Consider the thickness
On thicker slabs colour will appear richer and fuller. For kitchen and bathroom work surfaces are usually used 2 or 3mm quartz slabs.
9. Plan ahead
Some styles are rarer than others, which means they are also more expensive. If you don’t want to break the budget, we are willing to give you a free quote. Just tell us which style you opt for and the size of your workspace. This way, you will approximately know whether you can afford that specific style or not.
10. Take your time to pick your colour choice
Quartz work surfaces are very durable and will last you for at least 10 years without the need for replacement. Therefore, make sure that you are 100% certain about your colour choice because you will have to use it for a huge amount of time.
