Stones have become a popular material for worktops globally as more and more people are forgoing wood and laminate and opting for this versatile alternative. Whether you choose natural stone or engineered stone, this sturdy material has a timeless, luxurious appeal that can enhance the look of your home, no matter where you install it- either in your kitchen or living room.
Here are the top 5 benefits of buying stone worktops from Stevenage for your home.
In a kitchen, surfaces have to withstand a lot of abuse; the movement of hot pans, knives and heavy dishes can damage your countertops. The stone’s high strength and durability allow it to bear this frequent wear and tear with proper care, making it a material well-suited for this high-traffic area of the home.
- Low on maintenance
Stone is easy to wipe and keep clean, making it easier to maintain the hygiene standards required for a kitchen. Cleaning requires minimal effort. You can do it with only a piece of soft, damp cloth and warm, neutral or soapy water. Quartz worktops from Watford provide this ease of maintenance by being almost non-porous.
- Stain resistant
As a mixture of natural stone and chemical resin, quartz has a low porosity that gives it excellent stain resistance. Natural granite, while porous, can achieve a high level of stain resistance when treated regularly with commercial sealers. This stain resistance is critical in a food preparation area where spills are common.
- An attractive range
Stones, especially marble and quartz, are available in many different colours. At Marble & Granite, we have an exquisite range of stone worktops. This allows a discerning homeowner like you to choose from a wide range of worktops to complement your new or existing décor easily.
- Value for money
The high-end aesthetic that stone adds to a home can help increase the saleability of your property. And if the quality of your stone worktop is maintained at a high level, you can expect it to even last you a lifetime.
