Porcelain. Porcelain worktops are the most durable kitchen worktops, since they stand up best to every possible scenario. Porcelain worktops are:
- UV Resistant
Unlike marble or granite, they don’t need sealing.
Unlike quartz, they won’t dull or degrade outside or in strong, direct sunlight.
Unlike laminate they won’t damage from chopping on or placing hot pans onto.
Unlike Corian they won’t melt under high heat.
Porcelain worktops are the most durable kitchen worktops on the market today and because they are made from the same material used to make tiles and pavestones, you can use the same material in different areas around the home to achieve a seamless look in a full home reonovation.
Dekton and Neolith share the same properties so it’s possible you could call it a three-way tie if you wish, but porcelain is better overall because it is a bit cheaper and there are more colours available in more thicknesses and formats, making it a more versatile material overall.
