What are the advantages of stone effect kitchen worktops?
A stone effect kitchen worktop is manufactured with man-made materials to provide the visual effect of natural stone. There are several advantages and benefits to choosing a stone effect kitchen worktop. These include:
- Practicality- a stone kitchen worktop, like granite, marble or limestone can be a stunning visual feature in any kitchen, contemporary or traditional. However, natural stone is not naturally impervious, or non-porous. This means that to be practical in a kitchen environment, particularly for worktops that connect to the sink, it is necessary to seal and treat the stone on a regular basis. Not only is this time consuming, but forgetting to keep up with this routine can cause damage, and potentially expensive replacements. Stone effect kitchen worktops however are designed to be fully waterproof and hygienic, making these the practical choice.
- Visual effect- stone effect kitchen worktops achieve the same jaw-dropping visual effect as real stone worktops. These are manufactured and designed to look the same as real stone, and the difference is often imperceptible. As a result, your kitchen can benefit from the stunning visuals, without the complex maintenance.
- Colours and styles- stone effect kitchen worktops are available in all kinds of styles and designs. From white and grey marble, to slate grey and pink granite, you can choose the colour and style that best matches your space.
