Black countertops and worktops are the most popular in new homes and renovations in homes today. Black is a unique colour because it combines well with almost every other colour. It goes well with stainless steel appliances, wood cabinets, white cabinets, and painted cabinets. The different types of Black Stone countertops are all also very durable.
This article will discuss the benefits of five different types of black stone worktops: Black Granite, Black Quartz, Black Composite, Black Laminate, and Black Corian countertops.
Black Granite is one of the most popular choices for kitchen countertops and worktops. There are many reasons for this popularity such as strength, appearance, and durability.
Granite is one of the hardest stones there is, therefore it resists cracks and chips extremely well. Also, due to its strength will be very scratch resistant. Other benefits include it being mould, heat, and moisture resistant. This will ensure the beauty of your granite for many years.
Speaking of beauty, Black Granite can bring an atmosphere of elegance and it has a natural sheen to it. It can match any style of kitchen and would make any kitchen look as great as it could possibly be.
Black Quartz countertops will consist of around 93% pure quartz along with about 7% high quality polymers to give you an extremely hard material. For a reference, this quartz has a hardness rating of 7 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale. Diamond is a 10.
Black Quartz countertops are extremely hard and durable, meaning very scratch resistant like granite. The only drawback compared to granite is that because of the 7% polymer, quartz is slightly porous. It is still a very beautiful and strong stone and will make any kitchen look magnificent.
There are a few types of other black stone countertops to choose from that have just the same beauty as granite and quartz but are lower in price. Some of these include: Black Laminate countertops, Black Corian countertops, and Black Composite countertops.
The main benefit of these other types of Black Stone countertops is the price. They are not as expensive as quartz or granite because they are manufactured and easier to install. They have roughly the same look to them except for some tiny differences. For example, corian countertops are slightly more susceptible to marks and scratches, but these can be fixed if necessary.
Black Stone countertops have excellent durability. Whether it is the tough and hard stones of granite and quartz or the manufactured products of the other types of stones, they are all more durable than any other countertop material.
Another great thing about the durability of Black Stone countertops is that they are scratch resistant. The countertops will probably not show any marks for a very long time and if they do, they can be repaired.
The greatest benefit from black stone worktops is the appearance that they have in your kitchen. They make any style of kitchen look modern, unique, and inviting all at the same time. The black stone goes very well with wooden cabinets to give your kitchen an almost modern-rustic look, but also goes well with white cabinets for a very modern-futuristic look that comes from the contrasting colours.
Whatever reason you choose to decide on purchasing Black Stone countertops, you can be assured that they will make your kitchen seem absolutely beautiful. Since they are also very durable you will be able to enjoy their beauty for many years to come!
