Kitchen countertops: why you should choose mineral surfaces

28 May 2024

Choosing mineral surfaces for your kitchen countertop is a strategic choice that combines aesthetic appeal with durability and practicality, while protecting the environment and your health. In particular Quartzforms countertops offer various advantages compared to other traditional materials such as granite.

Why you should choose mineral surfaces

Mineral surfaces offer a wide variety of stylistic options, ranging from classic to modern, rustic or farmhouse design. This versatility stems from the opportunity to create surfaces that resemble the appearance of other natural materials such as marble, with the addition of customisable colours and textures. The consistency of the pattern and colour, checked during the manufacturing process, ensures a uniform appearance. These surfaces stand out for their resistance to scratches, chipping, heat and stains due to their non-porous nature that prevents the absorption of liquids and makes cleaning easier. These characteristics make them virtually indestructible and ensure that the surface remains beautiful and functional over time with minimal maintenance required. Unlike marble and granite, they do not need to be sealed periodically.

Cost and ROI

The cost of the slabs is competitive with other materials of the same high quality and, given their durability and low maintenance, they are a cost-effective investment in the long term.


Kitchen countertops in mineral materials are produced to ensure the healthiness of the finished product. Mostly consisting of mineral materials, they are combined with resins and pigments in a process that minimises emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), helping to improve the quality of indoor air. Furthermore, due to their chemical compactness, they do not facilitate the proliferation of bacteria and mould, providing a more hygienic surface for food preparation.

Environmental Sustainability

Choosing mineral surfaces is an eco-friendly choice, and Quartzforms uses processes with a low environmental impact. By using sustainable practices such as water recycling and energy from renewable sources such as solar, wind and biomass, Quartzforms shows its firm commitment to the environment. Our ongoing search for high-performance raw materials with a low environmental impact also includes a reduction in transport-related carbon emissions, thus confirming our company’s focus on sustainability throughout all production stages.

Innovation and Technology

The sector of kitchen countertops in mineral surfaces is constantly evolving owing to the use of cutting-edge technologies in production. Such innovations not only improve the quality and resistance of the materials but also provide a more extensive range of finishes and colours, closely resembling other natural materials such as marble, granite, and even cement, without their drawbacks. Being able to customise your kitchen countertop with a wide choice of designs helps to meet the aesthetic requirements of each customer while ensuring a high-quality and long-lasting finished product.

A Smart Investment

Choosing mineral surfaces for the kitchen countertop is a smart investment that combines aesthetic appeal, functionality, hygiene and solidity. With a broad range of styles and colours, combined with superior resistance and durability, they meet the needs of the most diverse lifestyles, proving to be one of the most popular choices on the market. Technological innovations and sustainable production practices also make them an excellent choice for those who want to combine design with environmental responsibility.
