How to Choose the Perfect Engineered Stone for Your Home

How to Choose the Perfect Engineered Stone for Your Home

Two of the most popular rooms of the home for remodeling projects are the kitchen and bathroom, and there are certainly many possibilities to improve and beautify these rooms. 

One of the best materials to choose from for your countertop or vanity is, without a doubt, engineered stone. Its superb durability and unrivaled beauty will add character and elegance to your kitchen or bathroom, but how do you choose which type of engineered stone for your remodeling project? 

Start With a Plan and Design

Your kitchen or bathroom remodeling project should always start with careful planning and initial design ideas. For example, consider whether you plan to have your newly remodeled kitchen or bathroom lighter than it previously was or if a darker tone is more suitable. 

Which colors or tones are you going for? Are you trying to complement a color palette used elsewhere in your home, or are you trying to contrast? Is there a particular style you’re after, such as a traditional shaker kitchen, or do you prefer something more modern or contemporary?


These sorts of questions can help you narrow down specific styles, and from there, you can start to consider details such as countertops and vanities.

Choose Your Stone Type and Finish

Once you’ve come up with a plan and an initial design, you should start to consider which material to use for your kitchen countertop or vanity. While there are many to choose from, such as marble, granite, and porcelain, Caesarstone and other engineered stones are some of the most popular types of stone for kitchen countertops and vanities due to their superb durability and beautiful appearance.

Engineered stone is available in many fantastic styles and textures, offering color palettes that simply can’t be beaten. This is due to the hybrid nature of engineered stone being a natural material at its core but containing a synthetic resin that can color the stone in a wide variety of styles and with various finishes.

For example, one of our suppliers, YDL Stone, offers quartz stone in over 40 varieties. Pick and choose your preferred style and keep it in mind when consulting with a qualified designer and installer.

Bring Samples of Interior Design Ideas

When shopping for engineered stone benchtops in Melbourne or vanities, you should always choose a reputable supplier that can assist you through the entire process from design to installation. One of the big benefits that the customer has is that they can take in paint chip samples, fabric samples, and other interior design ideas when consulting with their designer/installer.
