The Best Countertops for the Kitchen

When we talk about modular kitchens, an important element that can determine the success or not of the project, is the worktop material, or top, if you prefer.

In the market there are infinitive possibilities of choice, and it is not always easy to make the correct choice.

In this short article I want to provide you a short “map”, which can be useful for your next projects.

  • LAMINATE; It is the cheapest finishing in the market, and it is available for almost all brands of kitchens, as “entry level” (also used on the doors and on the sides finish).We do not recommend it and we have it not in our catalog, firstly for an aesthetic coherence with the range of kitchens RIFRA, and then because it has certain weaknesses, such as a low heat resistance, and possible infiltration if the kitchen worktop if has been installed in a wrong way.
  • QUARTZ: Natural Quartz is the most effective material for the worktop of your kitchen. In RiFRA we chose Silestone, which is composed in 94% of natural quartz, a material that offers exceptional hardness and resistance. It is the first and only quartz worktop with antibacterial protection that guarantees unique hygienic qualities in the market. In addition, he requires to the kitchen working tops minimal joints.Silestone: brings together the best of natural stone and innovative design, it is the world leader in quartz surfaces for the home setting.

    Silestone is often used by us for the FLY model kitchen.
