Yay or nay?
… matte benchtops. Caesarstone marketing communications manager, Linda Hannah, weighs in
The deal: Kitchen benchtops are some of the most used surfaces in any home. They need to look amazing and be highly functional.
The pros: Matte finishes offer a more industrial urban aesthetic and are becoming increasingly popular, especially on concrete designs, where it enhances the overall look.
The cons: Matte surfaces are more susceptible to showing everyday marks and spills meaning that more regular cleaning is required to keep them looking pristine. A polished surface is ideal for easy maintenance, shows less fingerprints and offers that beautiful consistent reflective shine across the surface.
The verdict: It’s a yay but consider your lifestyle. If you’re looking to achieve a more modern industriald feel in your kitchen design tthen a matte finish is a good choice.ic Check out Caesarstone’s newew Rugged Concrete, a unique industrialria look with aged patina and a rough-ugmatte finish.
