When it comes to turning kitchen ideas into dream kitchens, homeowners need to consider various factors. To begin with, there is the overall style. Kitchen ideas can be obtained from various sources including magazines, kitchen stores and the internet. Most companies offering furniture and kitchen surfaces have websites featuring many different kitchen ideas ranging from ultra-modern to traditional, old-fashioned looks.
Once an overall style has been determined, the question of kitchen surfaces arises. Kitchen worktops come in many different materials. While wooden kitchen worktops are beautiful, they do tend to be prone to damage. Stains, scratches and damage through exposure to heat are common with these kitchen surfaces. Granite worktops and other stone worktops are a far more hardwearing solution for kitchen surface applications.
Stone worktops provide a chip, scratch and heat-resistant sealed kitchen surface that’s exceptionally hygienic and also extremely stain resistant. This means it is possible to cut on a stone worktop without the need for a chopping board, which inevitably leads to damage on a wooden kitchen worktop. Spills cannot penetrate the sealed surface of a granite worktop, meaning there is no risk of staining or build-up of bacteria, and even hot pans cannot permanently mark a granite worktop.
Granite worktops, quartz stone worktops of varying descriptions, and, of course, marble kitchen worktops all have the advantage of being extremely hard wearing, as well as providing a kitchen surface that is totally unique every time. The stone tiles to use for flooring, splash-backs, etc, are equally hard wearing and unique.
Although it is possible to get a stone worktop with stone tiles to match very closely, no two slabs will ever look exactly the same. Because of this, even two kitchens incorporating granite worktops and splash-backs or flooring consisting of matching stone tiles purchased from the same supplier at the same time will always have unique and completely individual appearances. A granite worktop, quartz kitchen worktop or marble stone worktop will enhance any kitchen in a way even the most beautiful wooden kitchen worktop in the world cannot possibly match.
