Were Perth’s leading engineered stone benchtops experts
Engineered Stone benchtops are not cut or produced from natural stone such as granite or marble. They are generated with the use of fused quartz crystals and resin. This mixture is formulated to endure the intensities of daily household chores. Some may find the engineered stone as inessential and only creates extra labour; however, benchtops built through this method does have reasonable advantages you can’t see on natural stone.
Why Engineered Stone?
Natural appearance: Engineered stone hugely resembles natural stone when it comes to its appearance, and that is the principal advantage. As a result, you can still have an elegantly natural stone look benchtop minus the drawbacks that go along with the real granite or marble benchtops.
Variations: Endless designs, colours, patterns, and textures are available for engineered stone benchtops. It all depends on what you find appropriate for your individual needs. From modern, sophisticated, and vibrant look to a neutral and simply natural look, you can see whatever suits you best from an engineered stone.
Consistency in Appearance: If you’re someone who prefers your kitchen to have the consistency of a perfectly patterned design, your best choice is using engineered stone. Unlike in natural stones, you’re assured of being able to purchase identical slabs of engineered stone for your kitchen benchtops or even for the rest of your home.
Durability: Engineered stone is built to have the physical durability to sustain direct or intense impact that can cause breakage, cracks, or chips.
Resistance to Heat: It is formed to have extreme resistance to heat, a quality that most stone materials don’t have, even the natural ones.
Stain-resistant: Unlike natural stone materials that need to be treated with a sealant every few years to prevent stains, engineered stone is formulated to become stain-resistant. Therefore, permanent benchtop damages due to multiple stains could be avoided when using engineered stone.
Resistance to Mould and Bacteria: Engineered stone is processed without any pores for it to become non-absorbent. It is specifically designed to prevent the accumulation of mould and bacteria.
Less Maintenance: Besides its extreme durability, uncomplicated maintenance is most likely the best feature you can benefit from an engineered stone. This quality makes it ideal for people with busy lifestyles who need quicker methods for cleaning up their household.
