How much will you pay for Quartz Worktops?
Made from engineered stone, quartz worktops have become a frequent choice of homeowners looking for beauty and resilience.
Quartz worktops have gained a lot of traction in the market in recent years and the demand for this material has boosted significantly as result of it’s increasing popularity.
However, a frequent question when deciding on kitchen worktops is centred around the price and how much it actually costs.
If you’re interested in buying quartz, please read on as we will dig deeper into the costs of installations for different quartz options, the manufacturers, and the average price displayed along with a detailed breakdown of costs and evaluation of the different ranges available and their quality.
We’ll break down the costs of different quartz options to give you a more detailed indication of the price ranges of quartz kitchen worktops.
Firstly, we should note that quartz is generally a more expensive stone choice; however, the most noticeable price difference will be between suppliers.
The main thing to remember here is that you can actually come across numerous budget-friendly options in the UK and there is always a deal to be had for your kitchen worktops.
We’ll be focusing on the price range for small (3m²), medium (6m²), and large (9m²) kitchens.
3m² of worktops
6m² of worktops
9m² of worktops
There are three additional costs of that need to be considered:
Cut Outs & Drainer Grooves
Homeowners should have an idea of the difference in the price, quality, and material of quartz worktops in London and the UK in general. For 20mm worktops, the estimated price is between £220 and £990. For 30mm worktops, the estimated price is between £240 to £1,300.
Example options: Global Crema, Compac Cenisa, Simply quartz
Example options: Silestone Blanco Stellar and Negro Stellar, CRL Grey Reflection
Before ordering these materials for your kitchen and bathroom countertops, homeowners should remember that several factors shape the price of the quartz slab.
The most obvious factor of price-determination would be the size of the kitchen, which we mentioned earlier – small, medium or large kitchens.
Quartz worktops usually come with square corners. However, if the owner plans on making them curved, this is an another £15 per corner.
Naturally, uncommon colours, patterns or styles will cost you more. However, this is mainly determined by the volume produced and what’s available.
Although it’s not a must, a majority of new homeowners enjoy the luxury of having extra workspace by installing an island which will add to the overall cost of the quartz needed. Bear in mind that if you want side panels (waterfall) the cost will increase further.
Of course, the thickness of your worktops will significantly alter the price. For example, 30mm worktops can increase the price by 30% when compared to 20mm.
Homeowners should bear in mind that the manufacturer charges £180 per unpolished, and £190 for polished cut-outs.
Lastly, we have the splashbacks. They serve the purpose by covering the space between the worktop and the wall to give your kitchen an extra glam look.

Another popular option that homeowners consider is granite.
Since different grades characterise this stone, the price range can vary a fair bit. For example, you can come across a price of £120/m²+ and also see the same option priced at £500/m²+.
The price range of this material also depends on the colours, thickness, and edge treatment.
Before you select material type, let’s take a minute to mention quartz’s competitor: Marble worktops.
For homeowners on a tighter budget, it’s comforting to know that marble can be an expensive stone and, therefore, a more expensive option in most scenarios if you’re looking to install it in your kitchen.
If you’re going with marble, and it’s not a small kitchen you’re re-doing, 30 square feet (2.79 SqM) of marble worktops could cost you up to £1,500.
The only difference between this stone and quartz is that the total cost for quartz is often higher due to the fabrication and installation process; the stone itself is often cheaper.
Although quartz is considered costly, – it’s a high-quality option for your kitchen or bathroom project. It’s slowly surpassing the natural stone era, and here are a number of reasons that support this claim:
A key feature of quartz is it’s stain resistance qualities. Since it contains HQ inert resins, there’s no need to have it sealed. It will endure coffee and other liquid spills pretty well.
