The kitchen is one room in our houses where we spend a lot of time every single day. So of course, it’s one of the rooms exposed to the most dirt, dust, spills, stains and other messes. The materials used to construct the kitchen can make the work of taking care of the kitchen much easier. One such material often preferred by homeowners is ceramic slabs. Ceramic has several benefits that make it suitable for the kitchen, here are the main benefits of having ceramic slabs in your kitchen:
They’re fire resistant
When used as kitchen worktops, on kitchen floors or walls, there’s no worry of it spreading any accidental fires that can occur in the kitchen. Ceramic slabs also don’t emit toxic fumes or burn. If something hot or burning is dropped onto the slabs, they won’t be damaged by the fire. Hot kitchen pans and baking trays also won’t scorch or warp the surface of the ceramic slab. They’re a great precautionary step to fighting accidental fires in the kitchen.
They’re resistant to scratches
Our ceramic slabs are scratch resistant, so you won’t have to worry about what you’re placing on the surface or any scratches damaging the ceramic.
They’re moisture resistant
In the kitchen, there’s always loads of moisture that results from cooking. This moisture can damage areas of the kitchen such as the floors, walls, and worktops if they aren’t made from resistant materials. Ceramic slabs are made to have a dense body that accumulates very little moisture if any. Using these in your kitchen means you don’t have to worry about spills of common liquids such as drinks and sauces damaging your surfaces.
They look great
The slabs are made from natural materials and add a beautiful finishing touch to any room. They’re available in a wide variety of colours, shapes, sizes, and finishes and so can easily complement the decor you choose for your kitchen.
They’re hygienic and food safe
Because it’s where we prepare and eat our food, the kitchen requires a higher standard of hygiene compared to other rooms in the house. Ceramic slabs are a sure way to meet this need since it’s very easy to clean. The hygienic nature of the slabs makes them safe enough to be used in the kitchen, this reduces the growth of bacteria ensuring that the quality of air and risk of contamination is improved.
They’re easy to maintain
In comparison to other options for kitchen worktop materials, ceramic slabs are the easiest to maintain. Caring for the slabs is very easy since they have high resistance to stains, dirt, and odours. Furthermore, they can be cleaned by simply using a damp sponge or mop and a good cleaning product.
