A bit of a change this week, we recently received some fresh bundles of quartz, so featured below are some of our amazing, classic looking, imitation marble surfaces.
Firstly, what is quartz? Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in nature. Engineered quartz surfaces contain 93-95% pure quartz, with the rest made up of resins and pigment. This gives engineered quartz kitchen worktops, or countertops, an incredible level of toughness. A wide range of colours available makes this product very popular when it comes to choosing surfaces that need to last.
This imitation Calacatta quartz captures the genuine look of its marble counterpart incredibly well. The signature grey veining over a pure white background is repeated evenly across these slabs, giving it a balanced look. Of course, this means that any pattern will be reproduced evenly too, something which some consider a bonus over the variation of natural blocks.
Similarly, to the above, the essence of a marble Black Marquina is captured here with great effect. The veining is thinner and more spread out across the slab, which gives it a consistent pattern and really helps picks out the white against the deep black. Something that these slabs do well is to include a number of finer details in the pattern, which helps to give it an even more genuine look when compared to the marble. A fantastic looking quartz surface all in all.
This quartz Arabescato has a much subtler pattern, with very fine details of the veining here very effective in giving you that a classic marble look. These slabs are particularly popular for use in kitchens. A clean, clear and bright aesthetic together with the durable nature of the stone itself proving a winning combination.
