Many kitchen tops out there are usually made of marble or granite. However, there are a few trending kitchen designs in Malaysia that you may want to consider, such as:
Quartz stones are basically engineered stones which are composed of 95% quartz particles and the binders make up the rest of the stone. Once the quartz has been mined, it’s added into an aggregated mix where the quartz crystals are combined with liquid resin as well as colorants into slurry. Quartz stones are widely used to create ergonomic, efficient workstations that cater to the diverse needs and goals of each particular kitchen surface, as well as unique design styles and preferences.
Granite’s vivid natural color palette and near diamond-hard, non-porous surface makes it the ideal material for counter tops. Granite has a crystalline structure which provides the kitchen with a more sophisticated and elegant look and the beauty of the stone can give the most conventional kitchen a little je ne sais quoi. Compared to Quartz stone, Granite stone has gained more popularity among Malaysia’s homeowners though both are natural stones.
Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. The crystalline hard rock is widely used for creating luxury counter tops, pillars or floors. Marble can add beauty and character to a kitchen, and since it’s available in a variety of patterns and colors, you can never get tired of experimenting with various combinations.
Solid Surfaces are generally composed from resins and aluminium trihydrate (ATH). They are typically used in households, office buildings and industry places where the materials can be incorporated as kitchen and bathroom counter top, display and bar settings, and even shelves. Solid Surfaces are available in a wide range of design choices from meteoroid to diamond, jewel to translucent, even pearl-effect – a total of more than 100 varieties.
