The humble kitchen benchtop. Seems like a pretty simple feature you’ll find in any old household. Of course, you want it to look good, but besides that is there really much more thought that needs to go into it? Well, before you get started on that next renovation or build you might want to have a look at some of Plyco’s special offerings. Kitchen benchtops have become one of the most popular applications for much of our plywood, so much so that we’ve got a number of options now that are perfect in the looks department, while also giving you many behind the scenes benefits that you’ll be thankful to have!
Spot The Difference
Our most incredible option is our Spotless Laminate sheets. Available in both black and white, this exclusive laminate is the most high-tech and scientifically engineered you can find. We’ve highlighted all of the massive benefits of Spotless Laminate in a previous blog post, but the short version is that it is heat resistant, impact resistant, bacteria resistant, and its colouring resists against fading in direct light. Not to mention it’s all topped off with soothes matte finish you’ll ever touch and feel!
These are all amazing qualities that our Spotless Black and White Laminate have at their disposal, but the real question is how do these features benefit and enhance the kitchen benchtop you’re making?
Well firstly, the heat resistance is a massive benefit, considering your kitchen benchtop is probably likely to be around an oven, stove and just hot food in general. Having the reassurance that no matter how many times you cook up a storm in the kitchen, the laminate on your benchtop won’t peel, crack, or become damage is a huge relief. Similarly, Spotless Laminate having anti-fade technology means the colour will continue to look consistent well into the future.
Bacteria resistance is also a feature that you will be extremely thankful to have in your arsenal. In general, this is always a nice thing to have in a product, but Plyco’s Spotless Laminate is designed so that the matte finish withstands all household cleaning chemicals. You’re able to clean your benchtop to your heart’s desire without worrying that you’re potentially doing some damage. However, you might not be cleaning it too often considering the properties of the matte finish stop fingerprints from ever appearing. Does this sound a little unbelievable? Well, it’s true! No matter how much you try there will never be a trace of human touch on this laminate. Your kitchen benchtop is no doubt going to be seeing a lot of traffic and a lot of hands, so this is a massive benefit. If you still don’t believe us you’re always welcome to get in touch with us for a free sample of the product.
Finally, the impact resistance is a handy feature that you won't realise you needed until it’s already too late! With so much going in your kitchen you need a benchtop surface that is sturdy. You don’t want a finish that will chip and damage at the very first instance of a bowl or tray being dropped accidentally. Plyco’s Spotless Laminate can take the brunt of those hits and keep on looking gorgeous for the years to come!
While our Spotless Laminate range is designed for a multitude of applications, it’s hard to deny that when you look at all of its attributes, it’s pretty much perfectly designed for being used as your next kitchen benchtop. As an added bonus, Spotless Laminate is available on a number of different substrates, so you can find the perfect one to suit your needs.
Alongside our Spotless range, we also have our Decoply. While not as scientifically supercharged, Decoply still offers a massive range of benefits, while also bringing far more colour options to the table. To top it all off it’s also a cheaper option if you’re looking to try and make your kitchen look fabulous while on more of a budget.
The Decoply line-up boasts 13 unique colours, split into two different categories. In the “solid” colour range we have Snow, Raven, Mint, Sky, Orange, Rust, Cloud, Cream, Charcoal, and Slate. Where the visuals differ dramatically to Spotless Laminate is the “Wood Grain” colour range. Choose from White Oak, Chocolate Oak, or Graphite Oak to give your kitchen benchtop an earthier and more natural look.
Decoply isn’t just a pretty face though! It’s pressed onto Plyco’s world-famous Birch Plywood, meaning it is strong, durable, and reliable. When you buy a product using Plyco’s Birch Plywood you’re guaranteed to be satisfied for years to come.
