What are the best options for kitchen worktops?

The very best worktops are the ones right for you, this might sound obvious, but when creating our wonderful bespoke work surfaces, we make sure the customer takes the time to really know what they are looking for. In deciding this, you will have to ask yourself; what do I want them to look like and how and I going to use them? 

Are granite or quartz countertops the best solution?

Granite and quartz are the two most popular options for kitchen work surfaces on the market today, neither product can be beaten for looks, range and durability. Our range of Granite and quartz encompass so many stunning colours, patterns and finishes the design choices are limitless. We have so many to chose from in our showroom gallery, you can even pick your own slabs of granite and make sure those stunning patterns forged over millions of years, are just perfect for your home.

In terms of durability you cannot beat either granite or quartz, whatever you are using the surface for, from oils and fats, to food colours and dyes, these two products are very hard wearing and extremely practical. 

Quartz, being man-made (out of <95% natural quartzite), has such a variety of finishes, from the very natural looking, through to the bright, bold and even sparkly!  

I like marble countertops but have heard they can stain?

Marble is less durable than quartz or granite, however we do have options for you, whether you want the purity of natural marble, or an extremely robust granite or quartz counterpart that really has the look of natural white stone and grey grain you are after, we can help, advise and come up with the perfect solution.
