Advantages of Victoria Falls Quartzite

Levantina is one of the leading importers of this type of stone, with many colours and finishes to choose from. These natural stone countertops offer many advantages for homeowners, making them an ideal choice for any kitchen renovation project.
One advantage to choosing Victoria Falls quartzite worktops is their toughness and resistance to scratches and stains. In addition, it makes them perfect for preparing food, as they will only easily scratch or show wear over time.
In addition to being highly durable, they are easier to clean than other materials such as granite or marble. And because they are heat-resistant, you won’t have to worry about hot cookware damaging the surface like other countertops.
Victoria Falls Quartzite Kitchen Design Ideas
The use of quartzite worktops, particularly the Victoria Falls, is increasingly present in modern kitchen designs. With its unique and bold colouring, this type of stone will bring an element of luxury and sophistication to any design scheme.
When using a quartzite worktop like the Victoria Falls variety, it is essential to consider how the stone might also be used elsewhere within your home’s interior.
One great idea is to use Victoria Falls quartzite as part of a feature wall or fireplace surround that complements other elements within your kitchen design. The beauty and sturdiness of this material mean it can easily stand up against the wear and tear that comes with daily use in a kitchen environment, making it ideal for such projects.
Another design idea is to create a stunning feature with the quartzite by extending it up the walls as a plinth and splashback. This design can provide extra texture and movement into the room that will draw attention.
The raw beauty of quartzite and its strength make it suitable for such an application as it can withstand any wear or tear in busy kitchens.
When used as both plinth and splashback, there are endless possibilities for personalising the look; from choosing various colours, textures, sizes etc., homeowners have complete control over their desired aesthetic outcome.

- Each slab of natural quartzite worktop is unique to you and your project. Nature does not create two identical quartzite slabs.
- Quartzite can withstand exceptionally high heat (up to 650 degrees Celsius) and offers excellent scratch and stain resistance performance.
- When you embark on a kitchen or bathroom renovation, you will most likely consider how the material would improve the appearance and functionality of your house.

The final cost of a Victoria Falls quartzite worktop depends on the size of the pieces you require, the location, and the accessibility of the property for its installation, dictating the number of worktop installers your project needs.
Here are the three main differences between quartzite and marble:
Cost: In general, quartzite is more expensive than marble. Quartzite stones start from £260 per square metre, whereas marble prices can begin at £130 per square metre.
Origin: When limestone undergoes intense pressure and heat, it creates marble as a metamorphic rock. On the other side, quartzite comprises crystalline sandstone, a more resilient mineral.;
Care: Quartzite needs less maintenance than marble and requires sealants on a less frequent basis. You should clean up any acidic liquid spills immediately to avoid marble etching. On the other hand, quartzite is more stain-resistant. Because marble contains calcite, its surface can be damaged by acid substances, whereas these won't affect quartzite.
