Were Perth’s leading engineered stone benchtops experts
Engineered Stone benchtops are not made or cut from an actual natural stone, like marble or granite; Instead, they are engineered using quartz crystals bound together with resin, designed to withstand the daily rigours in most homes. 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 engineered stone also looks like a natural stone. So you can have your elegant natural stone look without some of the downsides of actually having marble or granite benchtops.
Variety: Engineered stone benchtops have endless designs available. They are available in too many colours to list, as well as patterns and even textures that can suit your preferences. So whether you want a streamlined, sleek and modern look, or you want a more earthy, natural look, you can get it with engineered 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 benchtop and countertop throughout your home if you wish. With natural stone, attaining consistency on designs is quite tricky, though it can also last for decades which is great if you aim for long-lasting investments in your kitchen.
Durable: One of the most significant advantages or engineered stone is its brute durability, it doesn’t easily chip, crack or break.
Heat resistant: It is also heat-resistant, something that many benchtop materials, even natural stones, don’t possess.
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.
