Kitchen Benchtop Options

Natural Stone

Natural stone kitchen benchtops are a classic option thanks to their luxurious qualities and long lasting strength. Granite and marble are the most popular options with a vast range of naturally occuring colours and patterns available to choose from for your next kitchen renovation. It is important to note that natural stone products are porous in nature and can absorb liquid or powder spills. As such, a quality sealant is applied to the benchtop’s surface every few years or so in order to properly maintain and protect your natural stone kitchen benchtop.

Our Armadale kitchen renovation uses a combination of natural stone and engineered stone, allowing the uses the best of both worlds! A natural marble stone has been used in the design of the kitchen island while the balance of the kitchen’s benchtops are of a pure white engineered stone. The combination of stones allows the character and warmth of the marble to be the standout feature of the space.

Composite/Engineered Stone

Another popular solution for the kitchen, engineered stone benchtops are created using a unique combination of quartz, polymer resins and organic pigments to provide an immensely durable and simple to maintain surface finish. An engineered stone benchtop will not require sealing at any time throughout he product’s lifespan, furthering the product’s low maintenance qualities. These stone solutions can be found in a vast range of colours and patterns from concrete look options, marble or granite lookalikes and many more!
