Is A 30mm Quartz Worktop Better Than 20mm?
The choice between a 20mm and a 30mm quartz worktop depends on several factors; where it is being installed, what design style is being preferred, and various others. We will help you make a decision with our elaborate explanation below:
Quartz Kitchen Island
If you plan on having a kitchen island with extended overhang for use as a breakfast bar, a 30mm quartz countertop is better compared to a 20mm one. This is because a 30mm kitchen worktop has substantially more structural stability so it can withstand an overhang of 300mm without additional support.
Select your 30mm quartz worktops & breakfast bar.
Traditional Or Modern Kitchen?
Thicker kitchen worktops, such as 30mm, tend to have a more vintage and classic appearance. They add a sense of elegance and grandeur to your space. Thinner worktops, like 20mm, might provide a sleek and contemporary look. Consider the overall style of your kitchen or bathroom and choose the thickness that complements your style.
Heavy Worktop Activities?
Generally, thicker worktops are more robust and less likely to chip or crack under heavy use. If you anticipate heavy cooking, baking, or other kitchen activities, a 30mm kitchen worktop might be more suitable for your needs. Thicker countertops can also withstand more weight, making them suitable for overhangs or supporting heavy appliances.
Quartz Bathroom Vanity?
Unlike kitchens, a bathroom countertop or bathroom vanity does not have to deal with pressure of heavy materials. Thus 20mm quartz countertops are also a good choice for bathrooms. If you want a chunky look, a 30mm Quartz Kitchen worktop is suitable.
Under Budget Worktops?
Thicker worktops tend to be more expensive than thinner ones due to the increased material cost and manufacturing complexity. So, if budget is your concern, 20mm will be slightly less than 30mm quartz.
20mm & 30mm Quartz Price Difference
The price difference between quartz worktops 30mm and 20mm can vary based on several factors, including the brand, quality of quartz, your location, and any additional features or services you choose. In general, 30mm quartz worktops are often more expensive than their 20mm counterparts due to the increased material and manufacturing costs associated with the greater thickness. As a rough estimate, the price difference between 20mm and 30mm quartz worktop installation jobs can range from 10% to 30% or more.
