Why You Should Consider Composite Worktops

Composite is one of the most popular choices when it comes to stone worktops as it presents an impressive array of advantages and few disadvantages.

This man-made composite material is similar to laminate in its properties but far more hardwearing and also a little more expensive (although still far cheaper than natural stone options such as marble or limestone).

In this blog post we are going to explore some of the material’s positive features which make it a stone well deserving of your investment.



Unlike other materials, composite stones are non-porous, which means they do not require sealing or any special cleaning.

In addition, this makes composite worktops resistant to everyday spills and stains, and the material’s impressive consistency makes it resistant to warping and bending over time.


Owing to their seamless installation, composite worktops come without any visible joints, which means they avoid the collection of insects and bacteria that plague the nooks and crannies of other stone worktop materials.

In particular, this quality makes composite worktops a very hygienic choice for your kitchen or bathroom, where good hygiene and sanitation is paramount.

High durability

Composite worktops are built around a highly consistent core which is considerably sturdier and stronger that other materials such as laminate worktops.

While on the subject of laminate worktops, composite worktops also do not suffer from wear and tear as much, as any scratches can be sanded and wiped down to return the material to its original smoothness.
