These are all relatively easy questions to answer because they are all aesthetic qualities; they are merely there for the purpose of looking good. On the other hand when it comes the answering the question, ‘which counter tops are best for me quarts or granite? There are several other aspects to consider besides what looks good.

Both quartz and granite are natural elements that are extracted from the earth, granite is extracted from huge rock faces situated in the south of India whereas quartz is extracted deep from within the earth’s crust mainly in areas of Brazil. Today granite is still used in many of ‘Al-Murad’s counter tops but quartz on the other hand, due to its ‘chemical impurities’ and naturally occurring ‘physical flaws’ a commercial process of manufacturing pure, flawless, electronics-grade quartz was developed.

At ‘Al-murad Granite’ both black quartz and black granite are available, both black granite and quartz worktops are very versatile and will compliment your kitchen whether is has a modern or a more traditional look and feel to it. ‘Star Galaxy’ granite is a beautiful black based counter top which incorporates light grey and white speckles to give your kitchen a more traditional look.

However ‘Indian Black’ granite is a very versatile solid black shade which can will look right at home in a more modern setting. ‘New Black Pearl’ is considered a black granite but it has several other colours within it including whites, greys, sky blues and deep emerald greens, which produce an almost cloudy effect, due to this granites unusual design and diverse colour scheme it can be placed in a modern setting which has brightly coloured cookware and cabinets or it will work just as well in a kitchen that uses neutral, earthy colours to produce a more traditional look.

‘Portoro’ is black base quartz which has a light grey shade running though it which creates a very beautiful yet unusual smoke affect. The ‘Sahara’ quartz counter top is more of a dark grey with black spots and some white speckles. Both of these quartz counter tops would look stunning in a more modern setting due to their beautifully, stunning and sort after designs.

When weighing up the pros and cons of granite vs. quartz there are several practical aspects you need to consider, granite needs to be sealed at least every six to eight months whereas quarts does not. Granite is a naturally occurring material which means it is naturally resistant to germs and bacteria whereas this ‘new’ engineered type of quartz is not so it requires a lot more upkeep than granite does.

Both materials are hardwearing and heavy and both should be installed by professionals to avoid any unwanted accidents, this is a service that ‘Al-murad Granite’ automatically offer when you have made your choice as too which counter top is best suited to your needs.

On the other hand quartz countertops are non-porous which makes them stain resistant where as if your granite counter tops are not sealed properly they are prone to staining and scuffing especially if they are a lighter colour. Both materials are hard wearing and fairly heat resistant and if your countertops are looked after or sealed correctly they will look as new and as eye-catching in ten years’ time as they do today.
