6 Kitchen Surfaces To Love

Whether you’re building your dream home or renovating your humble abode, there are so many considerations when it comes to planning a kitchen. Here are six surfaces that we think you’ll love from benchtops to cabinetry and even the trusty kitchen sink!

Engineered Quartz

When durability and practicality are pre-requisites, an engineered quartz benchtop may be your best friend in the kitchen. Although man made, the main component in engineered stone is naturally forming quartz which is a highly strong mineral. Requiring little to no maintenance, engineered quartz is more consistent in colour and style than natural stone benchtops and a popular choice.  Click here to see three ways to use Caesarstone in your new kitchen.

A mirrored splashback will create a sense of spaciousness in your kitchen. Whilst bouncing light and reflection around the room, they create a dramatic look and a sense of space. Treated in the same way as toughened glass, mirrored splashbacks are safe for use behind your cooktop.
