Edge Profiles Available with Stone Kitchen Benchtops

The edge profile and thickness of your stone benchtop can be used to harmonise the specific style or design of the particular era you're attempting to achieve. When designing your stone benchtop, an essential element to consider is the edge profile. The edge profile is a vital feature that you need to discuss with your kitchen designer and stonemason before your kitchen cupboards are being made. For instance, a customer designing a “French Provincial” should go for a detailed edge profile like Waterfall. Nonetheless, if a customer chooses a modern design then it will suit to a less detailed edge profile, such as 20 mm/40 mm square — pencil round top/ pencil round top & bottom.

Different edge profiles are accessible that can be implemented with stone benchtop. We provide the most sought-after modern edge profiles that include Aris, Pencil Round Top and Pencil Round Top & Bottom.

Is there something like the most affordable stone benchtop?

Limestone and travertine are amongst the most affordable natural stone benchtop options. With a little added investment for regular maintenance, resealing and care, limestone is a smart choice for anyone who desires for an elegant, durable and lasting benchtop.

Which one offers the best value for money - engineered-quartz stone or natural stone?

Both natural stone such as granite and engineered stone are robust, durable and best-suited for kitchen benchtop use. If you're selecting granite, then go with black or any other darker colour shades, as it will provide a better look and finish and more durability. On the other hand, if you're selecting an engineered stone, it is best to stick with lighter shades like cream and whites.

Does engineered-stone need sealing?

Engineered stone does not require sealing because it comes with a resin polymer base; thus, sealants would not pierce the surface, so they turn out to be unproductive.

Is there a difference between engineered stone and quartz?

Engineered stone also referred to as quartz, isn't found naturally, but manufactured from quartz crystals held together with a resin binder. It helps to create diverse patterns and colour shades so you can choose the best one that suits your kitchen benchtop.

Is it safe to place hot pots and pans directly on the stone benchtop?

  • Natural stone, especially granite, is one of the most heat-resistant benchtop materials available today. Granite formed using very high pressure and high temperatures. You can easily place your hot pans and hot pots directly on a granite benchtop, and you will not find any stains or marks on the surface.
  • A quartz stone benchtop is an engineered surface and contains 93% quartz and the rest being the resin and pigments. Resin can only tolerate temperatures up to 65°C. Thus, if you're taking out a hot pot from your stove or hot pan out of your oven, you cannot place it directly onto your quartz benchtop. If you do, the resin will burn and may cause permanent damage. So, you have to place hot pans and hot pots on a metal stand or a hot pad. It eliminates the risk of burning your benchtop and damaging it permanently.

Which stone benchtop is the easiest to care and maintain?

Quartz stone benchtop is by far the easiest to care and maintain. Quartz stone engineered using ground stone and resin, so it does not need regular sealing which most of the marble and granite, natural stone benchtops require. Quartz being non-porous material does not stain easily.

Can you recommend the best method to clean stone benchtops?

  • A clean and moist soft cloth is all you need to clean the surface of stone benchtops that includes natural and engineered stone.
  • If you want to clean more stubborn stains, then use some drops of non-abrasive, non-bleach, neutral PH stone cleaner, which you will find easily at most hardware stores out there. Alternatively, you can mix a small quantity of mild-liquid dishwashing detergent with warm water to clean away the stubborn stains.
