The earth is made of various different materials and substances, and that means that mining for these materials is a huge benefit to you, and your kitchen!
We are of course, in this case, talking about the surface you decide to decorate your kitchen with, and the surface you choose to do all your cutting and leaning on. Your kitchen worktop takes a lot of hammer, so getting the material choice right is vital.
You have many options available to you, but one material which is time and time again proven to be durable and cost effective is quartz.
Quartz kitchen worktops are made of 90% upwards of natural quartz, with the other 10% being the dye which is added to create the colour scheme you want. Quartz worktops are therefore available in a huge range of different colours, designs, and finishes, and whether you go for a fashion fad, or a classic scheme, you are sure to have a kitchen décor which will suit all your needs.
The main advantages of quartz kitchen worktops, over other surfaces, include:
The cost of your actual material and installation in North London (Barnet, Enfield, Haringey) will depend on a few different factors, as you would expect, and the main one is the size. Quartz comes in slabs and they are cut according to how much you need; you can expect to pay around £45 upwards per square foot, so obviously the bigger your kitchen worktop requirements, the more you are going to pay.
On top of this, you need to look at the shape of your worktop – is it a bog-standard rectangular shape? Or, is it more oval? Are there curves? These factors will all influence the price, because the cost of installation is going to be a little more in this case. Of course, the colour will also drive the price up in some cases, because special finishes, e.g. glitter or marbling in the quartz, will cost a little more than a standard single colour slab.
Once you find the right Quartz kitchen worktop for you, your kitchen will be truly invested in. Quartz will last you for a long time, whilst being durable for all your needs.
