Stone bench tops are incredibly durable. Taken care of properly these will keep their good looks for many years to come. They are very easy to clean and extremely resistant to scratches that can easily happen during food preparation in kitchens.

Other incidents that can happen in kitchens are hot pots on benches. Some materials will stain or get damaged from heat easily. Stone bench tops are resistant to certain temperatures but still can be damaged by extreme and/or sudden heat changes so while your stone bench top is capable of dealing with some high temps it’s still recommended you place hot items on appropriate places such as wooden cutting boards etc.

Good Looking

Stone bench tops add a certain appeal to a kitchen. There are various colours and patterns you can get to suit your unique kitchen and style, but whichever you choose you are guaranteed that they will offer a sense of class to your kitchen like no other bench top.

Easy To Care For

As mentioned previously, stone bench tops are easy to clean. If like so many others you have a busy lifestyle you will want a kitchen work space that does not take a lot of work to keep tidy and clean. Because a stone bench top is one piece void of crevices, tile grout or pores you can easily wipe this down with a sponge and some dish detergent.

It is highly unlikely you will ever get a stain on a stone bench top so you won’t spend excess time scrubbing or wiping clean.

All in all, a stone bench top is affordable, looks amazing, will save you time on cleaning and will last many years. Of course the only way to have a stone bench top installed is by a professional. At Craftbuilt Kitchens we have a team of highly qualified professional installers who get the job right first time.
