In the Market for an Engineered Stone Countertop?
If you are in the market for a new kitchen countertop and want something that is both beautiful and durable, an engineered stone countertop may be the perfect choice for you.
Engineered stone countertops are made of a large proportion of crushed stone and quartz crystals, which gives them their characteristic beauty and hardness. They are also less prone to chips and cracks than other types of countertops, making them a great choice for busy kitchens.
If you are looking for a countertop that will stand up to the rigors of daily use, engineered stone is an excellent option.
The downside of an engineered stone countertop is that discoloration can occur over time when exposed to high temperatures, and depending on the combination of crushed stone, such as marble, it can produce a softer stone that is more prone to scratches.
The upside is the beauty of engineered stone can look almost as beautiful as natural stone. If you have budgetary constraints, then you may want to go with engineered stone, but be aware that engineered stone will not have the inconsistencies of natural stone, and some homeowners prefer the look of natural stone.
If you are considering an engineered stone countertop, be sure to consult with a professional to get the best advice on which type of stone is right for your home. With so many options available, it can be confusing. There are many brands around the world that produce high-end engineered stone, and a few are located in the United States. It is definitely worth having someone guide you on which brands are preferred and reputable.
