This year hasn’t been the best by any stretch of the imagination. However, homeowners are determined to find the silver-lining to the cloud that is Covid-19. Surprisingly, for many, this silver lining appears in the form of quartz worktops.
Quarantine restrictions have meant that travel and socialising have been hindered in a big way. Because of this, people have been spending a lot more time in their homes. This is the time you notice when things need to be updated in the kitchen.
Quartz, especially, has been a popular choice for hygiene-conscious homeowners who are ramping up their cleanliness levels during the pandemic. Discover why quartz has become a popular choice this year, and how homeowners are using quartz worktops to create stylish kitchens they will love spending time in.
Updating your home is great for your mental health
As anyone who suffers from anxiety or depression will know, having an untidy home or one in a state of disrepair can make you feel worse. Studies reveal that conducting home improvements can have huge benefits for your mental health. During lockdown, many people are suffering from mild to severe symptoms associated with poor mental health. However, if you are looking for something to lift your mood , home renovations could be the project you need. Having a focus and a practical purpose could be just the lift required during Covid.
If you are experiencing bouts of depression and sadness you should speak with a medical practitioner.
Why renovate your kitchen with quartz worktops?
The kitchen is often said to be the heart of the home. This is why it is important to make it a room you love to be in. Refitting your kitchen with quartz worktops will bring a whole new lease of life to the hub of the home. Breakfast bars, kitchen islands and new counter tops can completely transform your kitchen. And, a rejuvenated kitchen is bound to make you more inclined to open those cookbooks!
So many people are choosing quartz worktops because they are affordable and practical. Add to these the fact they look incredible, and their popularity is clear. Bring the family together in your newly refurbished kitchen.
Hygiene and quartz worktops
Besides providing elegance, quartz worktops are renowned for being a hygienic choice for kitchen worktops. The non-porous surface of quartz means that they don’t tend to harbour germs and bacteria like other worktops can. When you spill or pour substances onto a quartz kitchen surface, they can be easily cleaned and removed, minimising the opportunity for bacteria to form. Quartz countertops are also heat, scratch and stain resistant, making them a great choice for a busy family kitchen – or indeed any kitchen! Quartz surfaces also don’t require continuous resealing, making them very easy to maintain.
What are quartz worktops made of?
Quartz worktops are manmade products that boast a natural aesthetic. They are created using 94% quartz and 7% polymer resin. Quartz is mined from quarries before being ground finely and combined with polymer resin. These resilient slabs are also combined with assorted pigments which give them their beautifully natural look. The process of creating quartz worktops produces attractive, hardwearing surfaces that are perfect for kitchens.
