Our company manages worktop cutting and fitting to create tailored installations. Here, we look at the key elements of quartz worktops to see if they are right for your home. Our team covers:

  • Visual Appeal

  • Durability

  • Scratch Resistance

  • Practicality

Visual Appeal

The look of your worktops is a key consideration when planning a new kitchen. You will see and use it every day, so it is important that you love it. We carefully cut and fit quality quartz worktops to seamlessly blend into all types of properties. We work closely with you to create your ideal aesthetic. Our bespoke worktops provide a splash of luxury to enhance your daily life. With a range of effects and colours available, we have an option for everyone.


Determining roughly how often you will be prepping and cooking food on your worktop will help you choose the correct surface. With frequent use over time, durability should be a key factor for worktops in and around Basingstoke and Newbury. At KPS Home Improvements Ltd, we take all considerations into account during kitchen refurbishments to ensure a successful finish. The quartz worktops we provide are extremely hard-wearing and are built to last. Quartz is one of the toughest materials and is stronger and more durable than alternatives such as granite.

Scratch Resistance

Having a new kitchen worktop quickly succumb to scratches is frustrating and can be avoided. Quartz has a natural scratch-resistant quality, which will help keep your new installation in top condition for years to come.


Kitchen worktops can be useful tools in their own right. With quartz, you can work directly on the countertop when preparing food and baking, a feature that is not always possible with other materials. 

As a tough, stain and scratch-resistant material, quartz worktops are the perfect choice for those who use their kitchens daily. The quartz worktops the team at KPS Home Improvements Ltd fits during kitchen refurbishments can withstand spills, splashes and other daily wear and tear. Whilst we still advise using a chopping board for cutting food, it is possible to cut directly on the worktop, just remember to be careful. 

An additional benefit of quartz worktops is that they are naturally cool, which is perfect for kneading dough and rolling out pastry. Our experts are happy to advise you on all of the different types of quartz worktops we can cut and fit for your home in Basingstoke, Newbury or any of the surrounding areas.
