Porcelain stoneware in the kitchen

Porcelain stoneware is one of the most avant-garde materials in the business: in the past it was used only for the construction of floors and walls but now many people choose it also for the creation of kitchen worktops.

The porcelain stoneware kitchen top was born thanks to the development of technology over the years. It is composed of a mixture of natural materials cooked at over 1,200 degrees and is extremely resistant to thermal shocks.
















It is composed of sheets of ceramic glued to a multilayer support through resins and has a monolithic appearance: it seems a single continuous block that gives a sense of continuity to the entire kitchen composition.

The choice of the kitchen top focuses above all on the material of which it is made as the kitchen is an environment lived at 360 degrees, which is why it is good to opt for a material that is certainly aesthetically pleasing, but also resistant and long-lasting.

Here's why you should choose the porcelain stoneware kitchen top

Like all the choices you make, even in the case of purchasing a porcelain stoneware kitchen top it is important to know the product and the material well, in order to be able to make a correct choice and understand what the advantages are.

The advantages in choosing a porcelain stoneware kitchen top are:

  • High resistance, which makes it immune to shocks, to the heat of the pots, impermeable to water, humidity, dirt and does not change color over time. So it can be said that it represents a perfect combination of resistance and functionality.

  • Ecological material, therefore recyclable material that respects the environment.

  • Single block, it doesn't have those odd-looking junction points that very often are not particularly desired elements by lovers of perfection.

  • Scratchproof and hygienic, therefore easy to clean.
