It’s literally indestructible
Choosing a porcelain benchtop
means you’re opting for an environmentally friendly, entirely recycled option. It’s lightweight, heat-resistant, and it wards off ultraviolet light. It’s essentially unaffected by general wear and tear – and that’s always a welcomed bonus to any home.
Best of all, it’s almost impossible to stain the surface with harsh chemicals or liquids. Durability tests featuring hammers, blow torches, and even graffiti paint haven’t made a dent in this nifty material.
If you’re looking for a material that can flaunt its stuff in various ways, then porcelain is your new best friend. Benchtops made of this are a crowd-favorite among homeowners and designers, with applications growing daily. These products can be used indoors or outdoors without having to seal or treat the surface.
Generally, thickness varies between 5 to 20 millimeters, depending on what supply you go with. At United Stone Melbourne, we source only the highest quality materials to create our porcelain benchtops, so you know you’re getting the best bang for your buck.
They’re easy to clean and maintain
Because of all its resistance, porcelain is extremely easy to keep tidy and in good shape. As the kitchen is the most used area of the home, this is a huge advantage, making it a worthwhile investment for the long term. Also, because it’s non-porous, it’s a highly hygienic option for busy spaces – and what a dream that would be.
Endless colour choices and finishes
And if all of the above isn’t enough, porcelain benchtops also come in various shades and pigments, allowing you to choose the exact look you need for your space.
It is all done in manufacturing, where the material can be effectively exploited to garner a smooth, textured finish – matte or gloss.
