Sultry and Mysterious Black Quartz Worktops2 min read

Black quartz worktops are probably the first thing you start looking into when searching for the perfect countertop. The colour black is most popular in fashion, electronics, cars, home cinema and much more.

Quartz is a very well known and popular style of material. Black is a very versatile colour, working with literally any wall, floor or cabinet colour in your kitchen with ease.

Technistone Taurus Black quartz was installed into our client’s home. A strong black colour with various tones of white and grey fleck. A nice change from the black mirror style, this is more subtle but still gives a luxury high-end finish. Radius corners perfectly match the kitchen radius’ and the cleverly designed central fixed island offers a large amount of worksurface while retaining a wide galley style on one side.

Quartz is believed to be the best material for kitchen worktops. Style, performance and cost are all important factors to consider and quartz worktops deliver a premium look and feel but offer the ultimate in ease of maintenance and longevity too.

The engineered stone is made up of approximately 93% natural quartz mineral, with the remaining 7% made up of fragments, pigments and resins to give the slab overall strength and consistent design.

Benefits of a Quartz countertop:

  • Durable and long-lasting
  • A vast range of colours and styles available
  • Totally sealed and polished surface
  • Scratch and stain resistance
  • Low maintenance and anti-bacterial properties
