Home Living : August 10th 2010
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 10, 2010 Entertain in the kitchen » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING The kitchen is the heart of the family home. No longer just a place for cooking and washing up, it's become one of the key entertaining areas. With all this activity, most people want their kitchen benchtops to look good, as well as being durable and easy to clean. The benchtop is the focal point of any modern kitchen. But choosing the benchtop that works for you can be a daunting task. When you have stone, laminate, granite, marble, steel, timber and concrete to choose from, it can be very challenging. Your decision often comes down to price, aesthetics and practicality, but wouldn't it be good if you knew all the pros and cons of every surface so you can make a fully informed decision? Here's a quick helpful guide from Kitcheners Kitchens of the different types of benchtop available Laminate: This synthetic cost-effective option is made up of several layers. It's affordable, durable, versatile and comes in a variety of colours and styles that even emulate a particular natural look-alike timber or granite. Granite and marble: Go back to basics and back to nature with these classic surfaces that come in a highly- polished or matt-honed finish. It's visually spectacular, ultra-smooth and cool on the fingers. Corian: This beautiful solid surface is a patented blend of acrylic and natural minerals. It's non-porous and stain- resistant and comes in many colours, both matt and gloss. CaesarStone: This ever-popular man- made stone is low-maintenance, as well as stain- and scratch-resistant. It's non-porous, waterproof and heat- resistant and, best of all, looks fantastic. Stainless steel: Great for that cutting- edge industrial look and feel, it is highly durable. However you must maintain it regularly, as scratching can occur quite easily. If you are very particular about surfaces, there are many more options such as timber, tile and concrete.

The great thing about tiles is that they outlast many other floor coverings. Unfortunately, over time, dirt can become ingrained in the tiles and grout joints, which can be very hard to remove by home owners. At Tile Cleaning Solutions, we have a way of cleaning that "hard to remove" dirt from tiles. The process we use utilises hot water at high pressure to remove all the in-ground dirt and oils from the tiles and grout joints. A powerful vacuum simultaneously removes the water and dirt from the floor, leaving it totally clean, just like the first day the tiles were installed. It sounds messy...it isn't. Because all the cleaning is completed in a dome that is attached to the floor, there is no mess or overspray. We can clean and/or seal all internal and external tiles, pavers, stone surfaces, stencilcrete, stencilled & concrete driveways. MINOR REPAIRS ALSO DONE BY A QUALIFIED TILER.
