Are you renovating your kitchen? One of the biggest decisions you have to make is the type of benches you will use.

  1. Engineered stone benches

This is a popular choice of bench furniture for kitchen decorators. It is made using natural aggregates mixed with resins, coming in a variety of colors, from light white to dark gray. You can choose a solid color or have stones of different colors to add interest. You can get a chunky look by using a skirt wrapped around the edge but the latest trend is a 20mm thick clean, thin line. The main advantage of stone benches is that they last longer and are easier to clean.

  1. Laminate benches

If your reno kitchen is on a tight budget then laminate should be your way to go, but that doesn’t mean you have to back down from the look. Laminate has a very wide range of colors and designs that mimic expensive materials such as wood, stone and even concrete. That means you can get the look you want without the expensive price. Stainless and easy to keep clean but easy to scratch and burn so use a cutting board at all times and be careful with hot pots and pans. You must buy laminate benchtops in Australia via Kaboodle.

  1. Wooden benches

Although you may think of wood as an old thing, it is definitely worth it. You can bring warmth and character touch to your kitchen with wood by using cold materials such as glass and stainless steel elsewhere in the kitchen. The variety of colors available means you can light up with yellow ash colors or compare light colored doors with dark walnut tones. The logs need to be lubricated with food-safe oil or polyurethane for protection.

  1. Solid environment

Sturdy top benches are acrylic frame with alumina filler. Joining the middle of each piece of the bench is not visible after installation, so it looks like a large stone sleb. You can also have a sink set up on the bench so that there is no waste collection area, which makes it easier to keep it clean. It is also resistant to UV and therefore the ideal choice for an outdoor kitchen that is very popular these days. Another advantage is that the upper rigid benches can be adjusted.

  1. Stainless steel benches

A chef’s favorite stainless steel may be the texture you need to balance your palette. It is heat-resistant and sturdy, can be folded over on workplaces and benches, easily shaped into kitchen sinks and splashbacks, and used for feature shelves, too.

  1. Marble benches

Marble is a beautiful, natural stone that is widely used in kitchens as a benchtop and splashback material. It is a timeless and complex option but comes with an eye-catching credit and strong maintenance. Although it has an amazing hole and will soak up blood like a sponge, damaging the look of your investment, there are many ways to keep marble looking clean and brand new.
