Whether you’re moving into your first home or replacing existing countertops in a kitchen remodel, you may feel perplexed at all the options and different materials available. Unlike when choosing appliances, or even the colour of your walls, not everyone is so familiar with stone countertops, and they are a little misunderstood, with a reputation of not always being practical, or worth the investment.

What some may not realise is that quartz and porcelain are different to natural stone. They are still made using natural materials but manufactured in such a way to give them lots of desirable qualities that you would want for an indoor kitchen surface, as well as many product options for outdoor kitchens too! However, not all finished products are made equal, and the quality can vary drastically, between suppliers, so ensuring that you choose surfaces from an expert like Caesarstone who create their collections using only the highest quality raw ingredients and design know-how, is essential. If you’re looking for style, longevity and sustainability, at a fair price, it’s high time you became familiar with all the benefits that come with engineered stone countertops. 

1. Enhanced quality

Porcelain and quartz countertops come in unique, striking finishes, and can bring a lovely warmth or modern edge to a kitchen, letting you add character and beauty to your cooking space. Whether you want a honed or more textured look, there are a variety of surface finishes, colourways and veining options to choose from, and Caesarstone’s offering, created by their in-house design team will help you curate your perfect kitchen remodel.

With countertops from the Pebbles collection available in earthy stone colours, you’ll be able to bring the true essence of their origin, into your space. However, if you prefer a modern concrete appearance, complete with an industrial textured surface, or a marbled look with subtle and interesting markings, you’re sure to find the right surface. Plus, you can use Caesarstone’s online visualiser tool to help you imagine the different surfaces in your own space, making your decision far easier.
