… 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.
