High-tech bench­top ma­te­ri­als of­fer more than just strik­ing sur­face ap­peal, writes Kate Nixon.

Australian House & Garden - - DECORATING -

With a plethora of tech­nol­ogy-driven bench­top so­lu­tions now avail­able, there’s no bet­ter time to scratch be­neath the prover­bial sur­face and ex­plore the brave new world of com­pos­ites. Of­fer­ing strength, dura­bil­ity, af­ford­abil­ity and sus­tain­abil­ity as ma­jor sell­ing points, these high-tech en­gi­neered ma­te­ri­als also boast hy­gienic, wa­ter-re­pelling, heat- and stain-re­sis­tant qual­i­ties that have been care­fully tai­lored to meet our ev­ery­day kitchen de­mands. Flex­i­bil­ity with fin­ishes, thick­nesses and slab for­mats also guar­an­tees vir­tu­ally seam­less ap­pli­ca­tions and min­i­mal waste. And with the lat­est ad­vances in tex­ture and patina, these ma­te­ri­als can de­liver char­ac­ter like never be­fore. #
