Why Are White Worktops Popular?

When it comes to why white worktops are a popular choice for kitchens, there are many different reasons.

Cleaning White Quartz Worktops

When it comes to keeping your white worktop clean, you may find you’re not quite sure about the best way to tackle it. If you choose one of our favourite materials, Quartz, for your white worktop, many different benefits will help when it comes to the cleaning process due to their high stain resistance, however, don’t be fooled! Although Quartz worktops have a high stain resistance, this doesn’t mean they won't stain, especially if your colour choice is white.

Cleaning your Quartz worktops should be relatively easy due to Quartz’s non-porous nature, however, it is always advisable to clean up any spillages as quickly as possible. The best way to clean Quartz surfaces is by using a soft cloth, warm water and a non-abrasive cleaner, always check the packaging and do a test patch before using it across your entire countertop.

Although Quartz is known to be highly stain resistant when cleaning your white Quartz worktop, it is important to be aware that highly acidic cleaning materials or liquids can discolour the stone. Therefore, it is essential to clean any spillages swiftly to ensure against staining.

Luckily for you, if you purchase your worktop through us here at Bellagio Marble Ideas, you will be supplied with a cleaner that comes as standard with all our worktops, making cleaning your white Quartz worktop easy! However, if you don’t have the supplied cleaner at hand, you can find plenty of care and maintenance information in our exclusive care and maintenance guide.

You may be wondering, how to clean stains on white Quartz countertops. If you are, then the process is similar to the removal of stains from any other Quartz worktop. Solutions to consider are:

  • Glass cleaner
  • White vinegar and water
  • Dishwasher soap
  • Regular all-purpose cleaners that don’t include microparticles

However, it is incredibly important to always read the packaging before going ahead and applying the cleaner across your whole surface, as this could end badly. Although there are plenty of options for stain removal including our supplied cleaner, at Bellagio we always advise you to do your research before attempting any type of cleaning and always refer to our care and maintenance guide.

Maintaining Your White Quartz Countertops

Textured Whites

To make maintaining your white worktops easier, it may be worth considering a textured white countertop instead of a crystal white surface. A design with a slight fleck in, rather than something that is flat white can be a super easy way of keeping the initial surface looking clean. A great example is choosing something like a marble-looking stone, which has coloured veining running through and can help with any dirt or debris being obvious. An alternative that is available in both Granite, Sintered Stone and Quartz is a mirrored fleck, which will help to lift the surface's light-reflecting qualities.

Always Use a Chopping Board

This point is pretty self-explanatory, if you want your surface to stay looking its best then the best practice is to always use a chopping board, pot stand or trivet. It may also be worth investing in protectors for your hot pans, so you can put them on your white worktops without worry. By exposing your Quartz worktop to extreme heat, it can crack and that will lead to a void of your warranty, it is essential to use heat mats or trivets can help protect your Quartz worktops from any damage, whilst also keeping them looking aesthetically pleasing.

Streaks

Although you may be concerned about how to clean your white Quartz worktop, a big benefit to light-coloured worktops is that they are great for hiding any streaks, including dreaded watermarks. Darker surfaces tend to show streaks and watermarks easily, whereas white or light-coloured countertops can leave your kitchen with that showroom feeling. To remove any streaks that you can see, it is advised to wipe the dry surface with a microfibre cloth.
