Were Perth’s leading engineered stone benchtops experts

When they hear all of the benefits of having stone benchtops, Perth home and business owners will be able to see why.

Stone benchtops are not made or cut from an actual natural stone, like marble or granite. Instead, they are engineered using quartz crystals which are bound together with resin, and designed to withstand the daily rigours in most homes in Perth.

While this may seem strange and perhaps unnecessary, the process creates benchtops with quite a few benefits and even advantages over natural stone.

Why Engineered Stone?

Natural appearance: one of the first and most important benefits to many is that, while engineered, stone benchtops can still look like natural stone. So you can have your elegant marble look but without some of the downsides of actually having marble benchtops. But more on that in a moment.

Variety: because stone benchtops are engineered and are built with nearly endless variety. They are available in too many colours to list, as well as patterns and even textures if you like. So whether you want a streamlined, sleek and modern look, or you want a more earthy, natural look, you can get it with stone benchtops.

Consistent appearance: If you require perfection with your kitchen design, engineered stone is the best option for you. Each design creates identical slabs of stone benchtops, which means you can achieve a truly consistent appearance with all of the benchtops and countertops throughout your home if you wish. With natural stone, attaining consistency on designs is quite tricky, though it can also last for decades.

Durable: one of the most significant advantages is its brute durability. It does not easily chip, crack or break.

Heat resistant: it is also heat-resistant, something that many benchtop materials, even natural stones, are not.

Stain resistant: engineered stone is made to be stain-resistant. This is a big advantage over natural stones, which must be treated to be stain resistant and require regular maintenance.With engineered stone countertops, spilling juice or coffee will not result in permanently damaged benchtops.

Bacteria & mould resistant: Engineered stone is made to be non-porous and non-absorptive. As a result, it resists bacteria and mould accumulation, which is something that most other materials are not capable of.

Easy maintenance: perhaps the most enormous advantage of engineered stone is that apart from its durability, it requires less maintenance. And that makes it perfect for those needing a quick and easy lifestyle and don’t have the time or memory to put sealers on their benchtops.
