How to chose your worktops

Updated: Apr 28, 2023

Choosing the right worktops for your kitchen or workspace can make a big difference in both the functionality and appearance of the area. Here are some tips on how to choose your worktops:

Consider the material: Worktops come in a variety of materials including granite, marble, quartz, Dekton and more. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose one that fits your needs. For example, granite is durable and scratch-resistant, while marble has quite a lot of upkeep. ( Tip: have a read through our blogs to learn more about each type of surface)

Think about the style: The style of your worktop should compliment the overall design of your space. For a modern kitchen, a sleek and glossy surface like quartz is a great choice. For an industrial or contemporary kitchen, Dekton can be a great choice, while a more traditional or rustic kitchen might benefit from a granite or quartz.

Colour palette. Choosing the right color for your kitchen worktop is an important decision as it can greatly affect the overall look and feel of your kitchen. When selecting a color, it is important to consider the existing color scheme of your kitchen and the overall design aesthetic of your home. For a more traditional kitchen, using a plain solid colour is a good choice. If you are looking for a more modern or industrial vibe, choosing a surface with veining throughout is a good option. Choosing a dark or light tone will also depend on how much natural light your room receives.

Consider your budget: Worktops can range in price from very affordable to high end, so it’s important to choose one that fits within your budget. You can view our surfaces on our website and get in touch to find out what price group your preferred surfaces are in.
