We all put a lot of time, thought and hard earned money into deciding on the perfect kitchen for our home: should it be enduring classic or cool contemporary? High tech or traditional? Solid wood or laminate? Matt or glossy? Whilst this is obviously time and money very well spent, as the kitchen is increasingly becoming the multi-functional heart of the home, we should remember to put just as much consideration into selecting exactly the right worktop, too. It’s not just about the colour or style – the different materials and finishes can make all the difference to your dream kitchen’s form and function.
Laminate worktops were once the default choice for worktops and are still very popular as they’re usually very cost effective. They come in a huge range of colours, styles and textures – wood effect, slate effect, leather effect, round edged, square edged as well as varying thicknesses. Conveniently, they can be measured, jointed and fitted quickly and easily and are often available to buy off-the-shelf. Laminate worktops offer good heat resistance and don’t scratch easily, but can be susceptible to water damage so care is required in this sense.
Granite Worktops Lincoln and their other depots in Granite Worktops Harrogate and Granite Worktops Cheshire are undoubtedly beautiful to look at, and available in a choice of colours. Being a natural product, each piece is unique and features own individual variations in colour and marking. Granite worktops are exceptionally heat and water resistant, and incredibly durable therefore they’re not the cheapest option, but could potentially last a lifetime.
Quartz work surfaces are hard wearing and easy to maintain. They’re available in plenty of attractive colours and styles, and are highly resistant to heat as well as chips and scratches.
