What is quartz marble-effect?

Non-porous marble-effect materials like quartz are resistant to wine and lemon juice, among other common kitchen substances. Dirt and bacteria are unable to penetrate the surface of this very hygienic stone, so simply wipe it down with warm soapy water to clean it.

MGD’s Marble-effect Collection marbles have the distinct, natural patterns of marble in quartz surfaces. Despite being seen as the ultimate material for worktops and vanities, marble is not the best choice, as it is very porous and fragile. Since kitchen worktops are used so frequently and can be vulnerable to spills and stains, it’s important to have a material that will stand up to these things. That’s where the strength of quartz marble-effect worktops lie. You get the beauty of natural marble without the need to seal or protect it, with a quartz marble-effect countertop.

What stone do we supply?

We provide a multitude of kinds of stone in the UK, including granite, quartz, porcelain, Dekton and limestone, apart from marble-effect worktops. You can see our selection here.

What is the difference between quartz and marble?

Quartz, unlike natural marble, is simple to care for. It reproduces the look of marble without the difficulties of upkeep that come with it. Non-porous, scratch-resistant, and stain-resistant, quartz is entirely free of impurities. In spite of its inherent durability, natural marble may be unsuitable in a busy location like a kitchen as a result of its low durability, impurity-free character, and difficulty of cleaning.

Does marble absorb liquid?

Marble is a porous and absorbent natural stone, and it is therefore susceptible to absorbing liquids such as cooking oil, wine, fruit juices, and soup. Sealing it will help prevent this problem, but it will require regular resealing.
