Granite and quartz are both excellent choices for your kitchen, bathroom, or workshop surfaces. Both granite and quartz are durable, hardwearing materials that will last your home a lifetime, and it can be difficult to choose between the two.

We often get asked which is cheaper, granite or quartz worktops? The answer to this will vary depending on the scope of the project, the surface area of the worktop, and the specific needs of the customer. Both materials have a beautiful finish and it is ultimately up to personal preference, so here are a few factors you can consider when looking at the cost of granite or quartz worktops.

Our expert team at Norfolk Granite Works cater to all projects big and small, and understandably the larger your granite or quartz worktop the more expensive it will be. In addition, complicated shapes and sizes may require more consideration than standard worktops or surfaces.

What is the purpose of the granite or quartz worktop?

Both granite and quartz worktops are known for their durability, so are perfect for hard-wearing kitchen surfaces. It’s important to consider that spills and messes will happen, and you may want to think about how you will be cleaning your worktop.

Whether you opt for granite or quartz worktops, both will require minimal maintenance and are scratch resistant. Quartz worktops are man-made and therefor naturally non-porous, whereas granite worktops typically need resealing every year. This small additional cost every year is unlikely to break the bank, but this annual upkeep is worth consideration when deciding between a granite or quartz worktop.


What colour granite or quartz worktop would you like?

As quartz worktops are manufactured, they have more variety of colours and styles available than natural granite. However, for some the uniqueness of each granite worktop provides an aesthetic advantage over the uniform quartz. Different styles and colours of both granite and quartz worktops will have different prices, so you should think about your preferences when you request a quote from Norfolk Granite Works.

Remember your worktop is unique to you!

Every person and project are different, and therefore the cost of each project varies. Traditionally Quartz has been more expensive than granite, but as quartz worktops have boomed in popularity it is very hard to say if granite or quartz worktops are cheaper without understanding the scope of the individual project.

We would recommend considering the uniqueness and longevity of your worktop and let Norfolk Granite Works personalise our service to your needs!
