Why Quartzite Worktops Are Perfect for Your Kitchen

Welcome to this week's blog from R.O Surfaces! Today, we’re diving into the world of quartzite worktops and why they are the perfect choice for your kitchen. With their stunning appearance and incredible durability, quartzite worktops offer both beauty and practicality. Let’s answer some common questions and explain why R.O Surfaces is your top choice for all things stone in the North East, Northumberland, Teesside, and Cumbria.

What is Quartzite?

Quartzite is a natural stone that starts as sandstone and undergoes a process of heating and pressure over millions of years to become quartzite. This process gives it a glassy appearance and makes it incredibly hard and durable.

Is Quartzite Good for Worktops?

Yes, absolutely! Quartzite is an excellent choice for worktops due to its hardness and resistance to heat, scratches, and stains. Its durability ensures that your worktop will look beautiful for many years with proper care.

Why Choose Quartzite Over Other Materials?

Beauty and Uniqueness

Each slab of quartzite is completely unique, with its own patterns and colors. This means that no two quartzite worktops are the same, giving your kitchen a truly bespoke look. Popular quartzite varieties like Fusion Wow and Bikal offer stunning colors and natural patterns that are impossible to replicate with man-made materials.


Quartzite is one of the hardest natural stones available. It is even harder than granite, making it highly resistant to scratches and wear. This makes it ideal for busy kitchens where durability is key.

Heat Resistance

Quartzite can withstand high temperatures without being damaged. You can place hot pans directly on the surface without worrying about heat marks or cracks, making it practical for everyday use.

How Do You Maintain Quartzite Worktops?

Maintaining quartzite worktops is straightforward. Regular cleaning with mild soap and water is usually sufficient to keep them looking pristine. To maintain their beauty and protect the surface, it’s important to seal them properly.
