Marble, Limestone, Travertine, Granite or Bluestone? Different Types of Stone Benchtops
Now you’ve taken the important step to cure your kitchen envy, it’s important you make the right choice in stone to make sure you stay happy for years to come. Using a natural stone, as opposed to a synthetic option, is going to give you several benefits. Durable and hard-wearing, most natural stone options can tolerate very hot pans, skillets and all manner of utensils without sustaining any damage. Ever seen the surface of a synthetic worktop bubble under heat? Stone wins every time. Stone tops are also scratch and stain resistant (think about the scratched wooden tops you’ve seen), and easy to clean.
Granite and marble top the chart for their robust qualities, so if you are sometimes a bit heavy handed with your bench tops then these might be a good option for you. Suitable for any temperature, these sturdy tops won’t buckle under pressure and can stand up to high use.
Limestone is elegant, and we’re very partial to using a limestone top to tie in a bolder design in your wall or cabinet colours. This stone benchtop goes with practically everything, so it’s a great choice if you’ve got a hard to match scheme elsewhere. Things to consider are the maintenance, as limestone is not as hardy as marble and granite.
Travertine counters come very close to the luxury appearance of marble, on a slightly lower budget. The veins and colouring of travertine are unique to each piece, so you still get that bespoke appearance. Be aware of acid around travertine, though, and ask your consultant about the best care tips.
Bluestone is an old favourite of ours, this volcanic rock is incredible, with simple maintenance these sturdy Brisbane stone benchtops should last an extremely long time.
