How are quartz and marble rocks formed?

Marble is a porous metamorphic rock that’s formed over millions of years from limestone that’s been exposed to intense pressure and heat.

Quartz is one of the hardest minerals known to man and is non-porous, making it really easy to maintain and resistant to liquids. Quartz is also scratch resistant, making it perfect for hectic kitchen areas.

Which is more durable for a kitchen worktop?

Quartz is a more durable material than marble and provides greater resistance to spills, stains, heat and scratches. Additionally, quartz is also resistant to bacteria growth, making it ideal for kitchens.

Quartz kitchen worktops are available in a plethora of distinctive finishes and colours. They also feature additional metallic ‘flecks’ that bring character to any kitchen.

Marble kitchen worktops are also striking in appearance. They usually feature ‘veins’ that branch-out sparsely across a white or black surface, making for an eye-catching and attractive design.

Maintenance advice

Quartz worktops are easier to maintain than marble worktops. Because quartz is more durable and non porous, it’s more resistant to stains, heat and scratches, making it incredibly easy to maintain.

Marble is porous, so any marble kitchen worktop needs to be sealed to offer resistance to spillages and stains that often occur in the kitchen. It’s advised that you reseal marble every one-to-years to maintain its appearance and resistance.
