Quartz, or engineered stone is a great choice for kitchen worktops as it is made of approximately 93% quartz and 7% resin binders and pigments. The surface is extremely durable and unlike Granite, Quartz is non-porous and so does not require sealing. These surfaces can also have antibacterial properties. Quartz also offers a uniform pattern unlike natural stone. You can get consistency between what you'll see in examples and samples to what your finished kitchen will look like. Piper & Ross have available a wide range of colours so your quartz kitchen can be all that you have planned.
