The importance of kitchen worktops


If you are buying a new house or maybe building your own then one of the most important rooms to consider is by no doubt the kitchen.

The kitchen is now a multi-purpose room – it’s used for the preparation and serving of food, both informal and formal. It’s used as an entertainment room maybe with a sofa and a television in it. It is used to entertain and at any good party it’s where people spend most of their time, after all it is where the food and drink should be!

So with all the attention that kitchens get it is important to make a good impression. Instead of changing your kitchen units, invest in a new kitchen worktop instead.

Changing your kitchen worktops can give your kitchen an instant facelift making it look fresh and brand new, and they will be a wise investment that will not only last but will make your kitchen very attractive to potential buyers if and when you ever need to sell your house.

quartz worktops

There is a large range of worktops available now. Quartz worktops are very popular thanks to their toughness and scratch resistant surfaces. They are easy to keep clean and looking like new.

They come in a large range of colours that you might not even think was possible and the prices range from the more budget ranges to the more glitzy ones.

An example of a quartz worktop is silestone.  Silestone is very tough, it has looks similar to granite worktops and it is non-porous so the risk of staining is negligible.

Silestone worktops often come with a very long guarantee as well, so check that out when looking to buy.

Other types of worktop worth considering are caesarstone (also a quartz worktop) and compac stone.
