Stone effect worktops are a great option for any kitchen, bathroom, flooring or internal cladding project as they not only look like real stone but also offer greater durability and ease of maintenance.
Stone effect worktops are made from quartz, porcelain or sintered stone, which is less porous and susceptible to staining than natural stone, therefore offering a more durable surface that can withstand heavy use and still look good – unlike natural stone which can eventually become worn, chipped or dull.
The high level of durability makes them suitable for practical use around the home as they can be used to bake bread and cook food without fear of staining, which can be a major issue with natural stone worktops, particularly marble. They also look great in modern kitchens as they add a unique touch of elegance that sets them apart from other kitchen surfaces.
As well as looking beautiful and providing great durability, stone effect worktops are also very easy to clean - simply wipe with a wet sponge to remove dirt and spills without damaging the surface.
Stone-effect quartz and porcelain kitchen worktops mimic the look of natural stone but provide durability that makes them more suitable for use in practical use around the home. The heavy-duty construction of quartz and porcelain provides a brilliant surface which is both beautiful and easy to maintain. Porcelain and sintered stone worktops can also be used outdoors, making them even more versatile.
Stone-effect quartz worktops can replicate the look of natural stone but are less expensive than porcelain worktops.
Porcelain worktops are an excellent choice for those who want a polished, professional appearance. They are durable, easy to clean and have a long lifespan.
Stone-effect quartz and porcelain are manufactured using a blend of quartz, heat-resistant clay, and resins in different ways. The result is a material that looks like stone but is much more durable. Stone-effect quartz and porcelain worktops can be used in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where stone is not an option.
They are also suitable for everyday use in homes that have high foot traffic. Stone-effect quartz and porcelain worktops are generally less expensive than natural stone. They also require less maintenance because they do not need to be polished or sealed like natural stone does. They are resistant to stains and scratches, making them easy to clean.
