Aesthetic, easy to clean and robust – these are just some of the key properties of a good worktop. In the following, you will learn which material is suitable depending on your requirements. The key points here are wear and tear, look and feel, care requirements and price range.
Do you like to cook and are you looking for a durable work surface? In this section, we introduce you to materials that convince thanks to their robust materials:
In terms of robustness, the ultra-compact high-tech material Dekton scores particularly well. It is probably one of the most durable materials for kitchen countertops and is remarkably impervious to a wide range of influences.
Surprisingly, glass is also a robust material. The special ESG process provides stability. And if, contrary to expectations, a break does occur, the glass breaks into small, blunt pieces that do not cause cuts. In a frosted finish, glass is extremely cut and scratch resistant.
Another robust material is Compact. These solid-core panels can withstand a lot and remain beautiful for years, even in kitchens that are subject to heavy use.
You can tell how hygienic worktops are by how easily they absorb liquids.
In this context, materials such as glass, Dekton and Compact come into question again thanks to their non-porous surface. In terms of hygiene, the classic laminate is also a good choice. With regular cleaning, however, you need not worry about any Lechner material.
If you want to be able to place hot pots or pans directly on the kitchen worktop, Dekton is recommended as a particularly heat resistant option. Glass, ceramics and quartz stone also tolerate heat very well and are therefore suitable for gas hobs. However, we still advise you to use coasters for extra protection.
Lechner offers materials for your kitchen worktop that are robust and durable. Nevertheless, damage can occur in a moment of carelessness. In case of major damage, contact your retailer. With regard to mending and reprocessing, we would like to mention three materials:
What is your ideal look? How should it feel to the touch? And what do you need for a perfect sense of space? We will go into this in more detail in this section.
You can express your personality through the colours and patterns of your kitchen worktops. The Lechner product range complements both modern and classic or creative styles.
Pure nature offers you the premium materials of solid wood and natural stone. Each panel is a unique work of art created by nature. Simply exclusive and individual!
If you want kitchen worktop colours and designs that are uniform and therefore easy to plan, then look no further than laminate, ceramics, Dekton and quartz stone.
Modern glass worktops are another highlight. With these products you can completely customise the design (e.g. with one of your favourite photos or a motif). Our creative graphics are not only suitable as a splashback, but will also turn your worktop into an eye-catching highlight.
When looking for a kitchen work surface, ask yourself which material best complements your living style and the character of the room – the following tips will help.
In dark rooms, light designs and glossy surfaces are recommended. Glass, high-gloss laminate and Compact are beautifully accentuated. Lighter variants of natural stone and solid wood skilfully round off dark kitchens, and are the ideal choice if your furnishing style is based on a natural concept.
In large, bright kitchens, matt surfaces are an oasis of calm. Frosted glass in copper, for example, looks extremely exclusive and blends perfectly into the overall aesthetic.
The indoor climate is also influenced by the kitchen worktop. Solid wood is particularly noteworthy here. This material, which comes from sustainable and certified forestry, has an antistatic effect and can balance out room temperature and air humidity.
Since kitchen countertops are subject to frequent wear and tear, it is of course understandable if you prefer an easy-care surface. These materials are in the premier league when it comes to maintenance.
With glass and Dekton worktops, regular cleaning is child's play. Both materials score with their impressive resistance to contamination and are easy to clean. A kitchen worktop made of laminate or ceramics is also less susceptible to stains.
Matt surfaces are becoming increasingly popular in the kitchen. A downside here is their tendency to retain finger mark. Our worktops made of Compact are equipped with a practical anti-fingerprint surface in the matt velvet version and are therefore significantly less sensitive than comparable matt surfaces on the market.
Re-oiling and waterproofing is necessary with our natural materials. Both natural stone and solid wood benefit from treatment once or twice a year. All other materials do not require any additional care.
The price range also plays a role when it comes to choosing a new kitchen worktop. Laminate is extremely popular with price-conscious customers such as first-time home furnishers and young families. Although this material is in the lower price segment, it is still a beautiful and practical alternative.
Our more exclusive materials include glass, Dekton, solid wood and natural stone. They are suitable for use in residential properties and convince with their outstanding longevity. In return, they usually accompany their owners for life.
