Natural stone reflects today's trend for sleek, clean kitchen surfaces. However, budgeting constraints often restrict a home-owner's options.

Quantum Quartz engineered stone from WK Marble & Granite allows kitchen designers to achieve upmarket surfaces without excessive outlay, says marketing executive Geoff Masterton.

"Made from over 93% natural quartz and a mix of accent materials and pigments all bound by resins, Quantum Quartz is a popular choice for contemporary kitchens," says Masterton. "The product is nonporous, and can be worked and shaped in the same way as marble or granite. It doesn't require sealing and is resistant to stains, heat, chemicals, chips and scratches."

Quantum Quartz provides effective solutions for any colour scheme. The palette of shades ranges from neutrals to bold tones, accented with chips of coloured glass, mother of pearl, mirror, granite or quartz.

Masterton says exacting manufacturing standards for Quantum Quartz ensures uniformity of colour, and the finish has no veins, pores or cracks.

Quantum Quartz has many design applications including flooring, fireplace panels, hearths and window and door surrounds. Slabs come in three different sizes, in standard 20mm and 30mm thicknesses and tile formats.
