Home Living : May 10th 2011
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 10, 2011 A guide to benchtops » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING The kitchen is the heart of the family home. No longer just a place for cooking and washing up, it has become one of the key entertainment areas. With all this activity, most people want their kitchen benchtops to look good, as well as being durable and easy to clean. Choosing the benchtop that works for you can be a daunting task with so much available today, including stone, laminate, granite, marble, steel, timber and concrete. Here's a quick, helpful guide from Kitcheners Kitchens to the different types of benchtops: Laminate This synthetic cost-effective option is made up of several layers. It's affordable, durable and versatile, coming in a variety of colours and styles that even emulate a particular natural look, like timber or granite. Granite and marble Go 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. It can also be welded together to form seamless joints. 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 looks fantastic. Stainless steel Great for that cutting-edge industrial look and feel, it is highly durable. There are also many more options like 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.
