FAQs

What is quartz stone?

Quartz stone, also often called "quartz composite", "composite stone" or "artificial stone", is a modern material consisting of 93% natural quartz crystals and 7% high-quality polymer resins and colour pigments. Quartz is one of the hardest naturally occurring materials in the world. The high quartz content makes a quartz stone splashback extremely durable. The polymer resins seal the surface and make it very easy to maintain – regular waterproofing is not necessary. Controlled manufacturing ensures even and predictable designs with polished or textured surfaces. This artificial stone is therefore in no way inferior to its natural counterpart.

What is the difference between quartz stone and ceramics?

Both quartz stone and ceramics are created under high pressure with a subsequent firing process. They differ in terms of the raw material composition and further processing. Ceramics are made of 100% natural materials and are therefore fully recyclable. Both materials are very high quality and absolute all-rounders in the kitchen. Ceramics offer slightly improved abrasion resistance compared to quartz stone. In our quartz stone range you will find fancy shimmering looks as well as both discreet matt and elegant polished surfaces. In our ceramics portfolio, the exclusively selected designs with an authentically rough surface are particularly inspiring.

Is marble a suitable material for kitchen splashbacks?

Marble kitchen splashbacks are very popular in the kitchen. However, many people overlook the fact that marble is a very soft and porous stone that is much more brittle and susceptible to acid and scratches than its natural counterpart, granite. However, if you have your heart set on adding elegant marble to your kitchen, a quartz stone splashback in a marble look is the perfect alternative: a robust and easy-care splashback that perfectly imitates the versatile colour play of marble in the designs 811 Eternal Marquina, 829 Brown marble, 841 Blanco suprema, 785 Neptune white or 786 Mars black. You will find more durable and easy-care marble designs in our ceramics and Dekton product groups.

Is concrete a suitable material for kitchen splashbacks?

The concrete look is becoming increasingly popular in European interior designs. Formerly considered the material of choice for functional, prefabricated buildings, the Bauhaus style pioneered by the great architect Walter Gropius, which dates back to the 1960s, is now a modern design element. It embodies an elegant minimalist aesthetic while echoing the harsh industrial lifestyle. Scarcely any other material can be combined with other elements so effectively ,while playing a background role as a deliberately harsh designer feature. In fact, however, while otherwise a robust material, concrete is only suitable for kitchen use to a limited extent due to its porous and water-permeable properties. Acid and water can leave lasting marks and stains. We therefore recommend low-maintenance alternatives such as quartz stone splashbacks in a concrete look.  For example, our authentic designs 787 Concrete grey, 798 Concrete brown or 849 Concrete light. You will find more splashbacks in a modern concrete look in our ceramics and Dekton product groups.

Cleaning and maintaining quartz

Quartz splashbacks consist of 93 per cent quartz crystals. Polymer resins and colour pigments are added for an individual look and extra durability. It is this combination that makes Lechner quartz stone a robust and versatile material. Slight variations in colour, structure and texture are expected due to the natural raw materials.

And the best part? You don't need to do much to ensure that your stone effect splashback remains permanently beautiful and easy to clean.

The following tips are important for the daily handling of quartz stone panels:

  • If your quartz stone comes into contact with aggressive agents such as acids or strong limescale removers, remove them quickly with sufficient water. This will help to protect the surface.
  • Sauce splashes and other dirt are easiest to remove when fresh. After cooking, briefly wipe the panel to prevent stubborn encrustations.
  • Despite its robust surface, we recommend that you do not use scouring sponges, scouring agents, pot cleaners or metal scrapers on your quartz stone splashback.
  • Wipe any condensation off the surface with a microfibre cloth to prevent the formation of unsightly limescale stains.

Cleaning your quartz kitchen splashback is a breeze!

Especially in the creative kitchen, melted chocolate, sauces and dough can end up on the wall behind the worktop. With a splashback made of quartz, this is not a big deal, because thanks to a surface without pores, you can clean it in a few easy steps.

For light soiling, it is sufficient to wipe the splashback down with lukewarm water and a cotton cloth or dishcloth. In case of more stubborn soiling,

  • mild kitchen cleaners,
  • glass cleaners
  • and soapy water

will ensure hygienic cleanliness. Wipe all surfaces dry with a lint-free cloth. This helps to prevent limescale stains, especially in regions with hard water. If limescale does appear, it can be removed in a matter of seconds with a little diluted vinegar cleaner.

Important: While polished quartz panels do not require any further maintenance due to their smooth surface, the waterproofing on textured surfaces should be refreshed regularly. We recommend treatment with "Lithofin Fleckstop W" once or twice per year.
