SURFACE FINISHES – Benchtops
There are so many wonderful options available so you can have a beautiful and practical food preparation surface. At The Kitchen Design Centre we can provide the perfect solution, no matter what your other surface choices are.
For the budget conscious, laminate offers a product suitable for benchtops. The edges can be curved around to look more like stone or you can have a square edge which allows a thicker look if that’s your style. A very broad colour range is available offering plain colours, timber-, marble- and granite-look a likes plus much more.
A very popular option on the market these days, is reconstituted stone, or man-made stone. These kitchen benchtops are formed by using slabs created from crushed quartz and other minerals arranged in a resin material. The effect is quite striking, with speckled, chip stone, or marbled effects as design/colour choices. The surfaces are non-porous so are resistant to staining, are very durable, and come in a variety of colours.
Genuine stone is also an option for benchtops, including beautiful granites and marbles. The colour and pattern choices are varied and individual. Formed in the earth by nature these stones are elegant and unique with no two slabs ever the same.
Timber benchtops also add a natural touch to your kitchen, can be stained in a range of colours, coated for a polished surface, or oiled for a matt, more organic look.
These and many more products are available to suit any lifestyle requirement. So, whatever style you choose for your kitchen, there will be a benchtop surface perfect for you!
