Stone, Marble or Wood? Get Any Surface Look with EDL Compact
When it comes to renovating the kitchen, countertop surfaces will always be a priority. Though it may have been easy in the past to pick out favourites, the market has since boomed, spawning hundreds of surfaces made from different materials, patterns, textures and colours.
Naturally, every homeowner wants the best fit for them. Besides durability and resistance, style has become an important consideration too. Let us show you how to get any dream kitchen look of yours with affordable and durable lookalikes! (Psst, also read on to find out more about an exclusive giveaway below!)
Multiple looks with EDL Compact
While stone, marble and wood kitchen worktops may be trendy now, they are not always the easiest to care for or the most affordable choice. Still, there’s a way to save yourself the headache and score style points in one go with EDL Compact.
Made from hunks of stone sawn into slabs then polished, natural stone countertops are typically thick, hovering around three centimeters or more. Not the look you want if you’re going for sleek.
Here’s a slimmer option
Emulate the feel of these countertops without the bulkiness by installing EDL Compact’s Stone. Choose between 6mm, 10mm (the Italian standard for countertops) or simply mix and match for enhanced durability and greater cost savings in your kitchen: Affix thicker panels in heavy duty areas and use thinner ones for your backsplash!
Though there is nothing quite as elegant or unique as a marble countertop (since no other kitchen will feature the exact veining as yours), it’s difficult to care for and expensive. Porous in nature, it is prone to stains and scratches, not great for a kitchen that sees intensive use.
A pocket-friendly, low-maintenance & high-performance alternative

With EDL Compact’s Marble, you will never have to worry about costs or maintenance efforts. Designed to withstand high pressure and temperatures, these surfaces are all impact, moisture, heat, scratch, stain and wear resistant (hardier than the porous marble) – it’s even easy to clean, just wipe down with a damp cloth soaked in warm water! For more stubborn stains, simply use a mild degreaser.

The resurgence in Scandinavian or rather the whole “MUJI-aesthetic” saw a revival in wood surfaces. While adaptable and easy to shape, wood countertops are easily damaged by water and may not be the easiest to match in grain, colour or texture.
