Deciding on which type of kitchen countertop will look the best and be most well suited to your particular needs can be a difficult task. At the high end of the market, the main contenders are granite, quartz and Caesarstone. Whilst quartz and granite are made from single, solid pieces of rock, Caesarstone is actually what is known as an engineered stone surface. Although the differences between engineered stone kitchen countertops, like Caesarstone, and one made from solid stone are not huge, there are a few important differences.
Solid stone worktops are all highly unique in their appearance and no two kitchens will look exactly the same – this could either be seen as a positive or a negative, depending on how you see things. With an engineered stone worktop like Caesarstone, what you see is what you will get, and the shade, colourings and markings will be identical to the one you saw in the showroom. This certainty is very important to some people and if you feel that only a certain, very specific style or colour will do, you’ll probably be best suited opting for Caesarstone!
