White Quartz Worktops – Pros & Cons
Many people are often scared about having white décor within their home but it can often end up giving your home a beautiful and elegant feel. White may look incredibly clean, fresh and crisp but it does come with a lot of work to keep looking clean, unlike other darker colours. Although, similar could be said for dark colours such as black.
A lot of people view white as a ‘danger’ or ‘brave’ colour to have but this article is here to help you with your decision of purchasing a white quartz worktop.There is a fair few pros and cons to having a white quartz worktop, so here is a list of the top ones:
As mentioned above, the white offers a beautiful look to any home and is a very popular and trendy choice for kitchens. As white goes with practically any other colour, you never have to worry about changing it in the future if you ever want to have a switch around.
Unlike other stones like marble, quartz isn’t expensive to buy. As quartz is available in a variety of different colours and patterns and none of them are rare, they are not considered high end and therefore not priced as such.
Crisp and Fresh
Any kitchen that has been decorated in white looks incredibly crisp and fresh. For that reason, white décor is on trend and has been popular for many years.
Ideal for Smaller Kitchens
If you have a small kitchen then white quartz is your friend because it will reflect the light into making the room look bigger than it is. If the kitchen does not have very good natural light, then it will also reflect artificial lighting to make this appearance.
Hard to Keep Clean
If your kitchen is a high traffic area then you may struggle with having white worktops. The main problem with having white quartz worktops is that they take much more work to keep looking clean than other colours because white will show up almost any type of mark, spillage or crumb.
Some people often think that white rooms look too sterile and remind them of an hospital, which isn’t exactly the type of emotion you want your kitchen to evoke. But with a few added textures, the white can look breath-taking.
As mentioned above, white has a great ability in reflecting light to make rooms appear bigger than what they are, but this could end up backfiring. If your kitchen is large then perhaps white wouldn’t be your ideal block colour, instead consider breaking up the white with some textures or darker shades to make sure that your room isn’t overdone.
As you can see, there are many more reasons why you should go for having a white quartz worktop than not. Quartz is the perfect worktop as it does not require regular maintenance such as sealing, like other stones such as marble, and is incredibly stain resistant. When you order a sample of quartz you can be sure that it is an accurate example of what you will get as quartz has a uniformity of colour and pattern.
