Tailor your kitchen to meet your needs with a bespoke worktop.
If you’ve recently moved house, you may still be getting used to all the new features and working hard into transforming it into your own home. Whether you chose it for its location, its charm, the size of the house, the number of bedrooms etc, you now need to work towards turning it into your dream home.
Tailor your kitchen to suit YOU, not the other way around
When it comes to renovating the kitchen, it can be easy to just leave everything as it is because of the amount of appliances found in the average kitchen. However there comes a point when you need to stop thinking about what is convenient at the time and start tailoring your kitchen to suit your needs.
The centrepiece of any kitchen is the kitchen counter or the kitchen worktop. It serves several purposes, most of the meal preparation is done on the worktop and in some kitchens meals are even eaten on the worktop. By designing your kitchen around the worktop, you can create a space that works for you.
Styles and Types of Worktops Available
The material for your worktop will depend on the style or theme you are going for with your kitchen. Worktops come available in a whole range of materials designed to make your kitchen shine. A few examples of materials used for worktops would be:
Granite – sealed natural stone known for its stain-resistant, scratch and waterproof surface. Prone to individual and unique patterns, this is a great all round material.
Marble – A beautiful material used for a wide range of different products including worktops because of the huge variety of colours you will see in different marble pieces. It is long lasting, hard wearing and can also be used for bathrooms and flooring.
Quartz Composite – a material specially developed known for its high resistance to staining, scratching and heat. A well sought after material available in a variety of colours.
Slate – polished metamorphic rock known for its durability and low liquid absorption levels. It is normally found in blacks, greens, greys and deep reds and purples.
Ensuring the Longevity of your Worktop
You won’t need to clean your worktops every day but if you see a mark or a spot, it is important to clean it as soon as possible. At least once or twice a week as a routine clean will ensure that you get the most use out of your worktops, leaving them to stay shiny and polished for longer!
Whichever material you decide to use for your worktop, make sure that you enlist the help of a professional as they will be able to give you expert advice as to the best styles of worktop for your kitchen and your needs.
