Time to decide on the Kitchen bench top for your dream kitchen? It can be a little overwhelming considering you also have to choose a splashback, taps, appliances – the list goes on!
When choosing a suitable bench top material for your kitchen take time to consider how it will look, but also if it is a practical option for you and your family.
You are however spoilt for choice as there are a variety of materials you should have on your kitchen bench top shortlist.
The most budget friendly option and gracing many a kitchen across the country. Laminate is justifiably popular for its wide range of colours and patterns – many of which successfully mimic other (more expensive) popular materials. It is also stain resistant, hard wearing and widely available.
Engineered Stone or Natural Granite
This is one of the more expensive options, though natural stone has bags of character and an organic quality that is difficult to match. There are durability variances depending on which type of stone you prefer, with marble especially vulnerable to staining from acidic foods and liquids. Quality slab granite and even caesarstone is widely respected for its low porosity and overall durability, though it is also sealed.
This is not a material you would normally associate with a domestic kitchen, but if you are looking for excellent durability and that industrial edge – go for it! Be prepared to pay for the privilege of pretending you are cooking in an award winning restaurant though. You will also have to accept that scratching of your stainless steel surface is inevitable.
A hardwood timber can be as effective as natural stone if you are looking for an organic accent for your kitchen benchtop. It is however going to be an expensive option, even though it is durable when sealed and easily repaired.
A kitchen splashback is an extension of the worktop, where walls are protected from cooking splashes and spills. This usually comes in the form of a tiling but the latest looks include a range of other materials such as glass, steel and Corian.
There are many different materials that you can choose from when you are deciding on your kitchen splashback. Each will create a different effect so you need to keep this in mind when making your final decision. Here are some of your choices:
Tiles -- tiles are a common splashback material and you can choose between many different shapes, colours and patterns so you can create a truly individualised splashback. However, it can be difficult to keep the grout clean and free of dirt or stains.
Glass -- glass splashbacks are becoming ever more popular as they are extremely hygienic and easy to keep clean and they are also surprisingly versatile. You can opt for plain glass, textured glass or colours painted behind the glass. However, they can be costly to install and they need to be cut exactly right or they will not fit.
Stainless steel -- stainless steel is a very modern, clean choice for your kitchen splashback and it is another material that is very easy to keep clean. Be aware that it will easily show smudges, fingerprints, water marks and other things if you are not careful.
Benchtop -- benchtop splashbacks sound unusual but it simply means that you are continuing the material of your benchtop up to become the splashback as well. This could be laminate, or a thin veneer of stone or stone composite.
Freestanding -- some freestanding ovens and cooktops now come with their own splashbacks which is great as you don’t need to think about providing an additional one.
Mosaic -- mosaic tiles can provide a brilliant feature when used as kitchen splashbacks. These are small tiles that are laid in sheet form and you can create some truly stunning effects. There is a lot of grout to keep clean however.
Mirror -- mirrored splashbacks can really open up the kitchen but they cannot stand up to moisture, food debris and the other rigours of the kitchen as well as standard glass can. If you choose a mirror the mirror will need to be toughened.
