Kitchen worktops consume a considerable amount of your kitchen’s space. They are the first point of contact for anyone entering your kitchen (well, unless there is a lion bathing on your sink), so it is very important that they contribute in the design and layout you chose for your kitchen. To make this possible, Y&S MARBLE LTD has plenty of great choices you can choose from. Whether you need the sparkle of Quartz Kitchen Worktops or the classical glamour of granite kitchen tops, or the ancient feel of wooden kitchen tops, we’ll have the best top for you. Don’t let your imagination feel restricted since we have all types of imaginable kitchen tops. This is a tale of a practical, affordable, durable and hygienic kitchen top.
Toughness in Style
If you want to add style to your kitchen without compromising on strength, then a quartz worktop will help you bring the best of both worlds. Our Quartz worktops are made from 93% pure natural quartz that is astonishingly durable, anti-bacterial, hygienic, scratch and heat resistant, and to crown it, not prone to staining. How tough is tough? Our quartz countertops are tested for quality and toughness, having an average score of 7 on the Hardness Scale (diamond has a score of 10). It will prove highly resistant to cracking and chipping, which makes it easier to transport and also install.
Quartz Worktops Colours
Unlike granite, quartz is a manufactured product that allows for a much wider selection of colours and design. Being a manufactured product means that it can be customised to look very attractive as compared to natural stone such as marble and granite. Quartz kitchen tops come in a rich and luxurious finish which cannot be achieved by natural stone. As much as some people buy granite due to its earthly look and feel, others want to have something that flows with their kitchen design. We believe no stone surpasses the elegance and beauty of quartz worktops. Nor will any stone bring more depth, character and the blissful feel good factor to your kitchen. There are dozens of colours to choose from and we can assure you that it will be hard choosing the perfect one. Your choice of colour is limited to your imagination – they are over 100 different colours and shades to choose from.
The Promise to Planet Earth
As consumers living in the modern world, we need to make sustainable choices when constructing our homes. When choosing the materials and design to use, we should be conscious to leave the least carbon footprint. Quartz materials are generally more environmentally friendly since they contain recycled products and the manufacturing process is more environmentally friendly. To put it into perspective, natural stones need to be quarried and shipped halfway around the world to the manufacturing site.
Installing Quartz Kitchen Worktops
You can install your own quartz kitchen tops if you believe you have the skills it takes and the necessary tools. You will need to have excellent carpentry skills and the required set of tools (to measure, cut and move the quartz around). Accurate templating is crucial – you will need precision right down to the millimetre. When you are dealing with something that costs over £200 per square meter, mistakes can be very costly!
