The best materials for tops and kitchen worktops
The top must therefore be robust and resistant, suitable for frequent use and easy to clean. Another important element to take into consideration is the aesthetic component: the kitchen top can adapt to the furnishings of our home, enhancing it through the use of different materials, preferably natural. For all these reasons, it becomes essential to pay close attention to the choice of materials that will make up the work surface.
In fact, there are materials that help the environment and never go out of style, including stones, which if chosen consciously can be an excellent solution.
The rougher stones avoid too many processing steps, resulting ecological while the resins require different processes often and willingly using large quantities of chemical and, consequently, toxic products.
Furthermore, natural stones offer an incredible variety of colors and shapes for the kitchen top. A stone top is a valuable product, with rather high construction costs but recommended for those looking for a minimal design with the beauty of the natural material as protagonist.
Among natural stones, the most used materials are quartz, porphyry, marbles, which require more attention, and granites, which tend to be less porous and cheaper. In particular, the latter are more resistant, as they mainly consist of quartz.
The granites are totally waterproof, they do not scratch and are not afraid of acid attack. Undoubtedly the strong point of these kitchen countertops is their aesthetics but also the fact that they are evergreen, i.e. always in fashion.
The processing of our natural materials is done by our marble workers, who have been working for decades with extreme skill unique and resistant materials to give a touch of class to the worktops of the most beautiful and functional kitchens.
