What is countertop thickness and why is it important. What are 2 CM / 3 CM countertops ? Pros & Cons. What you should consider when choosing Countertop Thickness.

Countertop thickness significantly contributes to the overall aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen or bathroom.

Aesthetically, a thicker countertop can make a bold statement, while a thinner one may offer a sleek, modern look.

In the stone industry, thickness  of countertop refers to the  depth of the slab used for  your countertops, typically measured in centimeters (cm).

The most common thicknesses for residential countertops are 2 cm countertop (approximately 3/4 inch) and 3 cm material (approximately 1 1/4 inches).

The 2cm thickness (3/4 inches) is a standard choice for kitchen countertops. This is a thinner countertop. It’s sturdy enough for most uses and can bear the weight of appliances

The 3cm thickness (1 1/4 inches) is the more robust. These are thicker countertops. It provides ample support for any countertop application and there is no need for edge buildup.
