Stainless steel versus natural stone worktops



Two popular choices when it comes to kitchen worktops are natural stone and stainless steel. It’s important to understand the pros and cons of both options so that you can make the best possible choice for your home.

Stainless steel has a lovely finish and many professionals choose this kind of worktop because it is resistant and hygienic. They are easy to have custom made to perfectly suit your kitchen. They are also aesthetically appealing and, by reflecting light, they can make your kitchen look more spacious.

On the downside, stainless steel is highly prone to scratches and they tend to prove more prominent than scratches to many types of natural stone. Stainless steel is also prone to denting if you drop something on this surface. Natural stone might chip but it will take a lot more force to chip stone than it will to dent metal.

Stainless steel can be rather noisy to work on whereas stone is a lot quieter. Stone is also considered “warmer” in terms of appearance. Steel surfaces come across as sterile and “cold”. Not to mention the fact that natural stone patterns give your home a unique aspect thanks to the veining as well as the various colours.
