Kitchen worktops, whilst functional, also have an aesthetic purpose, and each different kind of material has its own benefits. When it comes to choosing your kitchen worktop, it is important that you understand the differences between each type of material in order to make the best decision for your needs.

At Aquarius Home Improvements, we offer professional kitchen and worktop design using Earthstone finishes, as well as installation. To help you learn more about Earthstone worktops and their differences to other types of worktop, we’ve put together a handy guide below.

What is Earthstone?

Earthstone is a worktop which features a solid acrylic surface bonded onto a chipboard core.  It is completely customisable and is available in various finishes to provide different looks for your kitchen.  A modern, functional worktop, it has a number of benefits which make it a more preferable type of worktop than many others.

What Are the Benefits of Earthstone?

Earthstone affords a number of benefits, including:

  • The smooth seamless finish allows a custom fit, with joins discreetly hidden to give the impression of a tailor made worktop.
  • Earthstone worktops are made from a non-porous material which means that stains that occur from cooking and other household tasks won’t be absorbed and will be easy to clean.
  • These types of worktops are available in a number of different finishes, creating the illusion of graphite, glass and other types of work surface, whilst still benefitting from the Earthstone qualities, which make it an excellent choice for kitchen worktops.

Why Are Earthstone Worktops Different To Other Surfaces?

Unlike other worktop surfaces, such as granite, wood and slate, Earthstone worktops have that seamless appeal, whilst also being more heat resistant and stain resistant than other types of worktop.

Whilst other worktops absolutely have their strengths, Earthstone has a number of positives, with easy maintenance and repair being factors that lead many people to choose it for their kitchens.

Scratches and bumps can be easily repaired using buffering techniques or professional repairs, and they are also more affordable than other types of worktop, giving you plenty of value for money.

Moreover, the fact that Earthstone suppliers like Wilsonart provide a 10-year guarantee means you can benefit from total peace of mind.
