Nowadays, there are so many options available for kitchen worktops, one can get lost. There are numerous materials, colours and finishes, which are making the process very time-consuming. There are many things to consider, such as your budget, your style, what you already have…We will make it a bit easier on you with this brief guide on how to choose the right kitchen worktop.
1. Inform about the materials
There are numerous materials you can use for kitchen worktops, but we recommend the most durable ones, and those are the stones. Stones have a higher price point at the start, but they are very durable and will last you for decades. In our range, we offer both manufactured and natural stones. All stones have their pros and cons, and it is best to choose the one that will fit your manner of use. In the blog section of our website, you can find all about the materials you can find in our range.
2. Consider using two options
You don’t have to choose just one material for your kitchen; you can choose one for the kitchen island and the other for the rest of the cabinets. For example, you can choose marble for the kitchen island, because it is the most beautiful one and granite for the rest of the cabinets because it is the most durable one.
3. Visit the showroom
After you have explored all the material options, it is time to visit the showroom. Beforehand, you can see the colours on our website and make a shortlist. But it is still the best to see the colours in person and feel the texture of the material. Maybe you’ll find a colour that you even haven’t noticed when looking online swatches.
4. Consider the budget
Generally speaking, marble and granite are more expensive than quartz. The unwritten rule is that the rarer the colour is, the more expensive it will be, no matter what material it is.

We advise saving 10% more of the quote because that is not the final price.
5. Consider the style
Do you like traditional or contemporary style kitchens? The answer to this question can determine a lot the colour and the material. Traditional style kitchens usually have colours with rich details, while contemporary ones have just a few details or no details at all. Some colour choices will work with both traditional and contemporary style kitchens, like Carrara or Statuario marble.
