It doesn’t matter whether you are thinking about remodelling your current kitchen, giving it some well needed TLC, or looking to have a brand new one fitted in; the surface material you choose could make or break your design. Here is the lowdown of all the different kinds of surfaces available…
This material has an aesthetic quality with its trademark mottling pattern and range of different colours. It is able to combat splashes, knife marks, heat and many other kinds of wear and tear. On the other hand, it is important to recognise that granite is a surface which must be sealed regularly in order to avoid succumbing to stains. It is also rather heavy which means that the sturdy cabinets will need to support its weight.
These surfaces are mainly made from acrylic sold material and was first sold under a brand name. This brand name has now become synonymous with the generic term, Corian, which is still used today. As it is solid, it’s a nonporous material- meaning that no sealing is necessary. On the other hand, it is easier to scratch and burn.
Similarly to solid surfacing, quartz is a material which also doesn’t need much maintenance in order to keep it looking nice. On the other hand it can be rather expensive if you have a large area of kitchen surfaces to fit in.
Here at PS contracts we think that having the right work surface is just as important as the design itself. Get in contact with a member of our team and order your dream design today from our range of kitchens!
