What type of worktop is best for your kitchen? Take into account how you will be using your worktops, how much time you have to maintain them, and of course, how you visualise your new kitchen!
Here are some of our tops picks for kitchen worktops:
Crafted by Cosentino, a worldwide pioneer in the realm of natural stone, Sensa Granite is a natural granite surface. What sets these surfaces apart is their exclusive stain-resistant protective treatment, making them low maintenance, long-lasting and an exquisite choice for your kitchen or bathroom worktops.
The distinctive patterns that Sensa features, like granite, make your kitchen truly unique.
Quartz countertops are also popular among homeowners who are seeking a low-maintenance substitute for marble.
Imitating the appearance of natural stone surfaces, quartz is meticulously crafted from a sturdy blend of natural quartz crystals and resins, resulting in impressive heat resistance and a remarkable ability to withstand scratches. Its non-porous nature also enhances its resistance to stains and bacteria.
Butcher’s block wooden style
Much like stone countertops, the butcher block looks great in kitchens that have a variety of colours and textures. Although wooden worktops aren’t as durable as stone or granite, they offer a sense of comforting luxury. The primary consideration when opting for wooden worktops is to ensure they complement wooden flooring.
While granite and quartz are popular choices for custom kitchens and bathrooms, Corian offers a multitude of stylish colours and versatile shaping possibilities to create a truly unique worktop. Corian boasts heat resistance and is non-porous, ensuring hygiene and a seamless appearance while repelling dirt, bacteria, and liquids.
Corian’s nearly invisible joints enable seamless upstands and large islands, making it perfect for large kitchens. Its construction lends remarkable durability, supporting substantial weight and ensuring lasting quality. Stains are a thing of the past, as Corian is highly stain-resistant, a notable advantage compared to quartz.
