Designing your new kitchen can be a challenge. Especially when you consider all the decisions you need to make. From cabinets and handles, to flooring and layout, there are a lot of choices to be made. This includes choosing a kitchen worktop. Quartz, stone, hardwood, laminate and solid surface materials are among some of the potential worktop choices. So how can you filter the options so there is less to choose from? Well, here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced these tips for choosing a kitchen worktop.
What are the considerations when choosing the right kitchen worktop?
- Decide on your budget- the first place to start, as with any home renovations, is your budget. How much of your kitchen budget can you allocate to worktops? Knowing your budget will help you find worktop options available in your price range, and you won’t be so overwhelmed with choice.
- Kitchen style- Consider the rest of your kitchen. While some materials for your kitchen worktops will blend in seamlessly with any style, some choices are more suitable for a particular style. Make sure that whichever kitchen worktop you choose, it matches with the rest of your kitchen style.
- Colour scheme- Just like your kitchen style, your colour scheme can influence your kitchen worktop decision too. The colours you use throughout your kitchen will need to be just right, in order to set the tone for your home. So make sure you choose a kitchen worktop with colours that will match the rest of your kitchen. Quartz for example, is available in a huge range of colours, so can make a practical addition to wide variety of kitchens.
- Consider the maintenance- the final thing you might want to consider is the maintenance. Choosing a hardwood worktop can really bring your country kitchen to life. But it also means treating the wood, and adding waterproof sealant on a regular basis. Natural stone can have similar maintenance burdens.
