If you're trying to decide what kind of kitchen benchtop material you want, you're probably only considering the standard options, such as laminate, quartz, and granite. However, you might not have thought about, or even heard about, paper composite benchtops.
Yes, the idea of using paper as a benchtop material sounds absolutely absurd at first; after all, the paper you're used to gets soggy quickly and isn't exactly prized for its durability.
Marble is traditionally one of the most sought-after materials for kitchen benchtops. That is, until people learn of the disadvantages that make it so hard to buy and tough to care for. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that cultured marble benchtops are becoming more popular, along with other stone benchtop options.
Cultured marble is man-made instead of directly quarried from the ground, with real stone particles blended with certain resins and pigments to create a fantastic final product.
