Whether it's for a benchtop or the expansive floors of an apartment building lobby, the look of stone is hard to beat. However, while such a product makes an effective feature, design budgets also need consideration. Today, it's possible to obtain the look and feel of an expensive material without the price tag.

As well as importing natural stones, such as granite, marble and limestone, WK Marble & Granite supplies quartz-based engineered stone, says director Bill El-Cheikh.

"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 architects and developers," says El-Cheikh. "The product is nonporous, and can be worked and shaped in the same way as marble or granite."

Other advantages for specifiers, include the fact that Quantum Quartz doesn't require sealing and is highly resistant to stains, heat, chemicals, chips and scratches.
