We fully understand the stresses and pressures choosing a worktop can put you under. We have put together a few tips to think about when you begin this journey. There are so many different products on the market so you can rest assured you will find the perfect one to fit in with your kitchen design and style.


First things first, you need to be practical when it comes to your kitchen design or re-vamp, you need to ensure you set a realistic budget and try your best to stick to it.


Now you can then start to think about the fun stuff, what physical properties do you require from your worktop? Think of aspects such as the colour, whether you want to opt for a man-made or natural stone and if you desire a matt or shine finish. Another physical feature you may want or need to consider would be the thickness of the material. You may like the look of a slightly thinner worktop, or perhaps it needs to thin due to the space you have in your kitchen. Either way there are many options available to you.


Maybe the most important factor when choosing your ideal worktop is its durability and how it can withstand the potential damage that could occur in a busy or well used kitchen. We work with materials of all statures, some are heat, stain or scratch resistant. Some are easier to maintain than others, some need very little, or no maintenance at all, meaning it’s up-keep is stress free. The options are really very vast.

If you carefully consider all these points then you can ensure you choose the ideal worktop for your home. We have created an easy to follow guide on the above features and the different products we use, compare our products here.
