THE TYPES OF KITCHEN WORKTOPS WE STOCK
Buying the best kitchen worktop for you can be a daunting task. There’s so much choice on the market which can make it easy to give in and settle for the easiest choice that may not necessarily be the right choice for your lifestyle and home.
The kitchen is indeed the heart of the home so ensuring you get it right is incredibly important. The question is, how do you know you’re picking the right kitchen worktop for you?
There are a few things you need to consider for kitchen worktops:
1. YOUR BUDGET FOR YOUR KITCHEN WORKTOPS
Your budget is one of the most important factors and it helps to whittle down what’s available to you. Most kitchen worktops can fit most budgets but what you must remember is that scrimping on such a big focal point could spell stylistic problems. As it’s such a big part of the kitchen, you should make sure you can afford exactly what you want.
2. MAKING THE TIME
Removing an old kitchen worktop and installing a new one takes time. Do you have enough time set aside for everything to be ripped out and replaced?
3. INSTALLING THE KITCHEN WORKTOPS
Will you be installing the worktop yourself or having a professional, such as our team, do it for you? This will obviously affect timing as well as cost and needs to be considered.
While we never deter anyone from giving it a go himself or herself, we do advise hiring a professional if you’ve never done it before. You certainly don’t want to cut the wrong piece or measure wrong when you’re working with such a valuable material.
4. CHOOSING THE TYPE OF KITCHEN WORKTOP
Do you need it to be super easy to maintain? Do you want it to be heat resistant or stain resistant? Are you looking for a very specific style? This will all determine the materials that are better suited.
5. HOW MUCH WORKTOP IS NEEDED
The majority of worktops are available in a maximum length so if you’re looking for a worktop with no visible joins, this will also filter out particular materials.
Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll be able to filter your ideal materials. Here at The Only Way Is Granite, we offer the best kitchen worktops in Essex. We know what makes the best worktops out there which is why we specialise in Quartz and Granite kitchen worktops.
