So, in case you were wondering, all countertop material is charged per square foot. Quartz comes at a range price in Malaysia but is typically priced between RM70 – RM 190. This range depends on how they look, what colours and textures are in the stone, and where its sourced from.

Expect to pay upwards of RM150 and above for rare quartz types, especially with more crystal content and translucent particles.

Cleaning Routine:

Cleaning your countertop can be a real hassle but here’s all you need to handle cleaning, and not raise any eyebrows by judgemental guests.


The Tools You Need:  (Link all of this to Lazada)



Timing is everything

The faster you remove any spills, the better. Something you need to keep an eye on is acidity or alkalinity. Wine, vinegar, lemon juice and other tarty fruits and vegetable have acids that can seep. Granted, they don’t dull quartz the way they do marble, it’s always best to take precautions.

Use mild dish detergent with warm water to quickly wipe up fresh spills. If the spills have dried, then with the power of glass cleaner, a non-abrasive sponge and some elbow grease, rub it out. Remember, quartz is still susceptible to staining.

If your food has congealed and hardened, or maybe you spilt gum, nail polish, paint etc, then use the plastic putty knife to gently scrape it off.

For a thorough clean, at regular intervals use a non-abrasive surface cleaner and let it rest before removing it with a non-abrasive sponge.


Avoid the following:

Ph Extreme cleaners and abrasive surfaces – quartz can take a diluted acidic or alkaline cleaner but oven cleaners (Ph 1) can separate the bonds between quartz stone and resin.

Extreme Heat – Trust me, a scorch marks or cracks from hot surfaces is your worst nightmare. Save yourself the trouble and use trivets and hot pads.

Cutting On The Counter – I shouldn’t even have to say this,  but it bears repeating. Practice your julienning on a cutting board. Spare your countertop.

The Great Outdoors – Here’s the thing. The resin in quartz is plastic, and when exposed to UV rays from sunlight, your countertop will fade, or worse, warp and split.



Quartz needs to be re-sealed twice a year. The resin layer needs more sealant added and a final polish. This is best left to experts, as it requires precise work.

Never skip the scheduled resealing. The sealant helps keep moisture from spills from penetrating too deep into the quartz while allowing it to breathe and let vapour out.

Plus, you’ll be happy to know that a reseal won’t actually change the natural look of the quartz, and it makes the counter harder and less slippery.

Because entire slabs are massive and wholesalers prefer to sell in bulk, your best bet for finding a good range of quartz suppliers.

So go forth, and know that you’re armed with everything you need to know about purchasing quartz countertops in Malaysia.
