Many consider the benchtop to be the most important part of any kitchen design. The benchtop is used every day, whether it's for making sandwiches, pouring milk into cereal bowls, or cooking a three-course meal. It must be durable, cleanable, and attractive. There are many options for benchtops, each with its advantages and disadvantages.
Granite kitchen shelves are a popular choice for many kitchen designs. Granite benchtops that are both beautiful and durable are made from one slab of stone. Granite benchtops can be customized to fit your kitchen design with a range of colors and patterns, including smooth greys, mottled whites, deep golden browns, and whites.

Granite is a popular choice for kitchen design because of its hardness. It is difficult to chip or break. Granite must be sealed and treated well to avoid staining, unhygienic absorption, and bacteria. Many renovators are now looking for alternatives to granite in their kitchen designs, such as quartz. Quartz benchtops come in many colors including muted and smooth neutrals as well dazzling whites to match contemporary spaces.
Quartz benchtops for kitchen designs usually consist of a mix of quartz and other materials, such as resin, recycled glasses, and natural and artificial binders. The additions make the natural product suitable for installation in any space that is frequently used.
The final product is a smooth slab and doesn't need any maintenance. Although engineered stone benchtops don't have the same luxurious status as natural granite and marble options, they offer much better practicality and visual beauty.
