Porcelain Slabs vs Quartz – Difference & Comparison

porcelain-slabs

When it comes to deciding which material you would like for your home renovations, it can be extremely tough narrowing down what you like and dislike. A lot of materials have a very similar list of pros and cons, however the differences between them can cause a huge decision to be made. Whether it is based on which colours are available or how easy the slabs are to keep clean, every reason to choose one material over another is very important.

​ ​

This overview will hopefully be giving you some good information on which material out of either porcelain or quartz is the right one for you.

​ ​

Porcelain

​ ​

Porcelain comes with a huge list of advantages and not many pitfalls at all. Porcelain is available to be purchased in a massive range of colours and finishes to suit every type of personality or colour theme. Regardless of what colour you are looking for, you are bound to find the perfect colour and finish of porcelain for your home.

​ ​

Porcelain can be made to look like a lot of natural stones such as marble with its veining. So if the natural appearance is what you are after, then porcelain can definitely help you achieve that with minimal cost.
If you are looking to have a huge work surface or a kitchen island for example, then you never have to worry about creating your surface out of multiple slabs. Porcelain can be bought in huge slabs to give the perfect look to your room.

​ ​

Porcelain is also brilliant as it will never fade through the sunlight, so you never have to worry about your beautiful slabs fading in the sun. So go ahead and place your porcelain slabs in front of a window in direct sunlight, as it will never make a difference.

​ ​

Porcelain is also perfect for any area where there will be spillages of food, make up or anything that is generally easy to stain. Porcelain is incredibly stain resistant as well as scratch resistant, so you never have to treat your slabs as if they will break by looking at them.

​ ​

However, porcelain does not come without its disadvantages. Porcelain can crack, chip and damage over time if you are not careful enough, however the risk of this damage occurring is much less than natural stone. But still, the risk is high enough for you to have to worry about being careful and taking proper care of your slabs.

​ ​

Quartz

​ ​

Quartz is very much a good contender for being used within home renovations due to its amazing list of benefits. Quartz is known for being very low maintenance which is a dream for potential customers. Unlike natural stones, Quartz will never have to be treated or re-sealed during its lifetime, making it so easy to maintain. Quartz is a non-porous material which means that cleaning is made easy.

​ ​

Just like porcelain, quartz is also stain resistant. So you never have to worry about spilling drinks, making a mess with food or upending make up by accident – as it will simply stay on the surface top waiting to be cleaned off.

​ ​

Quartz is also such a budget friendly option. Not only is it great for the initial purchase but long term costs are non-existent because it requires no maintenance at all. Even if Quartz was a bit more expensive to purchase, it would be worth the investment due to the zero maintenance you are getting.

​ ​

Lastly, quartz is incredibly hard wearing so it is perfect for work surfaces and flooring. It can withstand high volumes of traffic without problems and should last you a life time as long as you take proper care of it.

Porcelain will never soak up any spillages, instead it will remain on top of the surface ready to be simply wiped away, keeping your home looking cleaning and tidy.

#4 Scratch Resistant

 

Similarly, to being stain resistant, porcelain being scratch resistant makes it perfect for areas such as kitchens, bathrooms or dressing rooms where there will be items such as knives or heavy objects that are capable of scratching surfaces.

#7 Easy Handling

 

Both customers and manufacturers love porcelain as it is perfect for handling, preparing and cutting. For all stages of production from cutting to preparing for installation, porcelain can be handled very easily which makes for a very quick process from start to finish.

We have mentioned before that porcelain is perfect for both kitchens and bathrooms and again, here is another reason why. Whether you are placing hot pots and pans on the surface or placing down hot hair straighteners, you do not have to worry about damaging the surface as it is heat resistant. However, we do still recommend that our customers continue to use their normal precautions such as heat pads to minimise the risk of damage.

Porcelain is known for being very durable and hard wearing, which makes it perfect for placing in high traffic areas such as kitchens or hallways. No matter how many times porcelain tiles are trodden on or slammed down on, as long as you take proper care of the material then it will last you for many years to come.

Pros & Cons of Porcelain Worktops

 

  • Porcelain is one of the best materials you can go for if you are wanting to be able to choose from a wide selection of colours, patterns and finishes. But what creates such a big selection to choose from? The raw materials within porcelain have varied pigmentation, to give you a lot to choose between. When it comes to the finishes, you are even able to choose a finish that has veining like marble.
  •  

  • Furthermore, once you have taken your time in carefully selecting the colour and finish, you will be glad to hear that the appearance will never fade as porcelain is UV resistant. Whether you place it directly in sunlight or not, it will have no affect on the long-term appearance of your worktop.

These two areas tend to have a lot of spillages from a range of chemicals, food, drinks and more. You will have peace of mind with your porcelain worktop as it is so easy to keep clean.
  •  

  • If that is not enough, porcelain is also scratch resistant which means that you will not have to worry about accidentally damaging your worktop with a slip of the knife!
  •  

  • With porcelain, it also comes in large slab sizes too, unlike many other materials out there on the market. You will have the ability and flexibility to use one single slab for your kitchen, offering a stunning look. You will not need to have multiple slabs fused together, depending on the size you are looking for.
  •  

  • You will also benefit from porcelain being so easy to handle, as well as the manufacturer! When it comes to the time of installation and preparing the area, the porcelain worktop can be handled and cut with ease which makes it a quicker process for everyone.
  •  

  • However, porcelain is not without its cons either. Porcelain comes with so many advantages, but the one downfall is that it can be chipped, cracked or damaged. Even though it is scratch resistant, this does not make it unbreakable. So you will still need to be aware that heavy items or force can still damage your worktop.

5 Tips for Choosing the Ideal Quartz Colour for Your Work Surface

01-Alaska-Bianka-Worktops

 

So, you have decided on the Quartz stone to use for your work surface but you have yet to pick our your colour. When it comes to deciding on the colour it can often be just as difficult as it was picking out which material to use, often it can be harder. Whether you are looking for a completely different colour scheme to what you have now or you are looking for something to match your existing accessories and theme, you are guaranteed to find the perfect Quartz colour to suit your personality and theme in mind.

 

#1 The Room Size

 

When picking out the colour, consider the size of your home first. If you have a small room then white or lighter colours will be favourable as they can offer the illusion that your room is much bigger than it actually is. Similarly, if you have a huge room then lighter colours and shades such as white may not be the best bet, as it can often make your room look far too big which can be quite unsightly.

 

#2 Cleanliness

 

When it comes to cleaning, the colour and shade you pick out and play a big part in how clean your room will look. If you choose a very light or pale colour, then you are at risk of having to clean more often than if you chose a darker colour, as it will show up more dirt and mess. However, extremely dark colours such as black can also have this same effect. If you are wanting a colour that will not show of dirt, then a medium shade colour will be perfect.

 

#3 Matching with Accessories

 

Think about the style you are wanting your room to be. Do you have your accessories already picked out? If you do, then pick a colour that will complement it but do not get a colour that will be hard to match up against in a few years if you change your mind about your accessories. It is easy to change the accessories over the work surface.

 

If you do not have any accessories at all and are simply picking out a colour that catches your eye, try to think about how easy it will be to find things to match it with. For example, if you like the idea of turquoise accessories then do not necessarily go for a turquoise work surface, go for something that will match perfectly and then incorporate the work surface colour into your accessories as well.

 

#4 Choose a Few Patterns

 

Once you have picked out the colour that you are going to purchase, try and find a few different styles of that colour. If you have chosen cream then try and look at a few work surfaces that have veining, spots, have a glittery appearance and perhaps freckles. Different patterns and offer a very different style and appearance to your entire room, so pick out the pattern carefully.

 

#5 Your Personality

 

Stay true to your own style and personality, never let the current trends sway your decision as in five years time and that trend is out the window, you may start to dislike your work surface. Make sure that the colour you are choosing is completely you, then you are far more likely to be happy with the outcome.

4 Stylish Quartz Leather Range Colours for Kitchen Surfaces

Gravel (1)

Leather Range Colours

 

#1 Calacatta Leather

 

Our Calacatta Leather colour is one of our light grey/off white colours. The base colour is matched with beige markings which give the appearance of leather rips which offer that rustic style that so many homeowners are looking for. Additionally, some people may be able to look at this colour and see that the markings are quite similar to that of Marble in the way that the markings of ‘leather rips’ follow the same pattern.

 

#2 Boston

 

Another one of our grey colours within this range is this Boston colour. The base colour for this one is once again light grey but with a slight darker grey for the markings throughout the design. These markings are very thin lines that run throughout the slab which work at creating the appearance that the leather is cracking. Once again, offering that beautiful rustic appearance but still different to our last.

 

#3 Gravel

 

As you can see, we love our grey colours within this Quartz leather range. Gravel is one of our medium to light grey colours that have thousands of lighter grey speckles running throughout and all over the surface of the slab. These speckles work at creating the appearance of small stones that are on the surface. Gravel offers a look very similar to Granite and for that reason may prove extremely popular!

 

#4 Statuario Leather

 

Very similar to Calacatta Leather, our Statuario Leather colour has dark grey veining that gives off the appearance of ripping of the leather. Additionally, some people may see this design again as being very similar to the pattern of Marble, but without the price tag attached. This colour may be similar to our other leather ripped effect slab, however the veining on this particular colour is thicker than the last so it gives an altogether different appearance that will suit a different kitchen style. The base colour for this slab is a light grey.

 

Final Thoughts

 

As you can see from reading the above guide to our Quartz leather range colours, we love grey! And that is because grey is such an on trend colour at the moment and does not feel like it will ever go out of style. Regardless of your overall colour theme within the kitchen, grey is a perfect colour as it will always match well against the colour and shade of your choice. You can also use it in a range of ways, for example if you wanted to be bold and go for bright yellows, you can. Or if you prefer, you could stick to a more neutral colour and choose lighter shades to complement it.
You can even switch the design up whenever you wish without worrying about being restricted with the accessories.
