If you are installing new kitchen benchtops in your home, you may be agonising over what to choose. Natural stone is an excellent, long lasting choice and two of the most popular are granite and marble. Here’s what you need to know.
Granite is a very popular material for benchtops as it is non porous and also resists chemicals and acids very well. This means your kitchen benchtop will stay looking brand new for years.
Natural Stone Granite is available in a huge range of colours, dramatic finishes. This means that you can choose a benchtop to blend in with your kitchen or bathroom, or a benchtop that makes a stunning statement. Using granite for your benchtops means that you get the beauty of natural stone without as much maintenance. However, granite is quite uniform in appearance, which needs to be considered when making your choice.
However, granite benchtops should be regularly sealed usually yearly. Granite Benchtop cleaning you may use most regular household cleaners. Be gentle and care for your granite benchtop
Marble benchtops really bring an air of elegance, style, and luxury to any kitchen or bathroom. There is nothing quite like them in terms of their dramatic beauty. You will find that marble benchtops are most commonly available in either a polished or a honed finish. Both are beautiful so it is personal preference. The beauty of natural stone and marble in particular that it is such a unique surface, with its veining and patterning. No two pieces of marble are ever exactly alike. Marble comes in a range of colours ys, so you are sure to find a Natural Stone Marble Benchtop that perfectly suits your decor.
You may hear that staining is an issue with marble benchtops but this really isn’t the case these days. This is because the new sealers that are applied to marble benchtops are penetrating sealers, which are designed to fill the tiny voids within the stone so that liquids don’t sink in and stain. You should still wipe up spills as they occur though, as liquids will still sink in, albeit much slower than they otherwise would. Dulling can still be an issue but if you apply a Marble Benchtop surface sealer as well as a penetrating sealer, it is not as much of a problem. Marble does require regular maintenance though, in the form of regular sealing, and this must be taken into consideration. Cleaning is as simple as using a damp cloth. No abrasives or strong cleaners should be used.
