A Stone Kitchen Benchtop is the Perfect Addition to your Melbourne Home
Although trend conscious, the approach to home design in Melbourne places a strong emphasis on quality, longevity and practicality. As a result, the Melbourne approach to kitchen design is very sleek and modern, employing neutral colours and natural finishes to produce a result which could be described as an edgy Southern Hemisphere take on Scandi chic.
Given the focus on quality materials, functionality and sleek finishes which avoid flamboyancy, it’s unsurprising that stone types such as marble and granite play a central role in many Melbourne kitchen designs. Naturally beautiful, incredibly durable and easy to clean, stone is an intuitive material choice for benchtops. It’s hard to surpass the unique aesthetic qualities of stone. As a natural material, every piece of stone is unique and it not only adds personality to your home, but can also boost the overall value of your property.
From a practical perspective, stone really is the premium material choice when it comes to workspaces, particularly areas where food is prepared and issues of hygiene and cleanliness are paramount. As one of the strongest substances in the world, stone is incredibly durable and will last a lifetime, it is also resistant to stains and scratches and is incredibly easy to clean. One of the other key benefits of stone is it’s heat resistance which makes it perfect for kitchens where hot pans, foods and liquids are a daily occurrence.
Choosing the right stone type for your kitchen is more a matter of taste than practicality. All natural stone tops as well as the quartz Caesarstoneare durable, easy to clean, and long lasting. The choice really comes down to the look and feel you want to achieve in your kitchen.
Often associated with classical art and beauty, marble is the obvious choice if you are looking to add a touch of luxury to your kitchen. Marble comes in an enormous array of colours and is of course streaked through with dramatic contrasting veins which are a characteristic unique to this stone type. Although beautiful, marble can be used to achieve a subtle finish that seamlessly blends in with your kitchen’s colour scheme.
