Kitchen Benchtops – Laminate, Polytec

As with other laminate options available on the market, Polytec benchtops in Melbourne have a great variety of styles and finishes for every kitchen design. Laminate benchtops used to be the eyesore of kitchens everywhere, they were a cheap and inexpensive option but were poorly designed and came in very limited designs and finishes. Not today, thanks to Polytec and their innovative manufacturing processes you can have the look of luxury without sacrificing quality and aesthetics.

Polytec uses an innovative manufacturing process that allows it to produce nearly 200 different high quality patterns and styles. The most popular of these are the various realistic wood grains and stones such as quartz and granite, with the added option of creating even more flair with a gloss or textured finish.
