Frequently Asked Questions

Compared to laminate benchtops, stone benchtops have a far more attractive appearance. Benchtops made from stone are also harder, scratch-resistant and longer-lasting than laminate benchtops.

Choosing stone for your kitchen and vanity is a great choice because it requires less maintenance and is a great investment. The likelihood of needing to replace a laminate benchtop, regardless of whether the property is to be rented or your own house, is much greater because hot pans and plates will damage laminate much more quickly than stone.

And because they are so aesthetically appealing, they are going to be attractive to potential buyers, should you ever decide to sell.

The name “natural stone” describes the fact that it is formed and discovered in the earth naturally. The natural stone found in homes all over the world has been quarried with skill and transported with care. Essentially, engineered stone is manufactured stone. The main ingredient of engineered stone is quartz, which is one of the strongest minerals on earth. The remainder of it, however, is created artificially.

Stone is a tough and hard material. It is both long-lasting and resistant to scratches and chips when used in a kitchen or bathroom benchtop. Natural stone also resists stains, especially if it is properly sealed.

Engineered stone benchtops are scratch-resistant, chip-resistant, and stain-resistant, too. In contrast to more porous natural stones, its real benefit is it’s more hygienic to use in areas subject to spills of liquids and water. Engineered stone benchtops are also well suited for bathrooms and kitchens.

When you’re on a budget and want all the bells and whistles in your kitchen, then granite is a great choice for your benchtop. Designed to last a lifetime, it is incredibly durable.

Natural stone like marble is suitable for a top-of-the-line kitchen if the price isn’t an issue. It is delicate and should be handled with care. Marble is more porous than granite, so it must be sealed and maintained.

Quartz is the perfect choice if you are looking for practicality. Currently, it is one of the most popular choices; it is affordable and comes in a variety of colours and designs. It is also nonporous, so no sealant is needed.

Keep the surface clean by wiping it down with warm soapy water or a household detergent to remove residue that could stain it. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the surface. You can apply methylated spirits to the cloth to give the surface an extra shine. Remember that engineered stone and marble will also need to be periodically sealed.
