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