Whether you are completely renovating your kitchen, or just looking for a new worktop, this part is very important, because it can totally change the whole appearance of your kitchen. Choosing the right material and colour for the new worktops is a tough process with so many of them available. Here’s a brief guide on how to choose the perfect stone worktops.
Inform about the materials
Quartz, marble and granite each have its own advantages and disadvantages. Granite is the best when it comes to holding up to high temperature and you can easily put away a hot pot on it, without the worry of damaging it. Quartz is a completely non-porous material, that is highly resistant to stains. Granite and marble, are, on the other hand, porous materials, but if you seal them, you shouldn’t have a problem with staining. Marble has the reputation as the most beautiful and unique stone. Granite and marble can be used also outdoors, while quartz can’t. All stones have a variety of options where can be used; from kitchen and bathroom worktops, to shower walls and backsplashes. Quartz has the widest colour range of the tree. If you are looking for an unusual option for your kitchen or bathroom, you should look in quartz’s range.
Vague the pros and cons
Think about the manner in which you are using your worktop. If you are not particularly careful with it and don’t like to use mats and trivets, you should consider granite. On the other hand, if you are especially cautious and you like aesthetic, consider marble. If you like the look of marble, but you don’t want to pay a bit more attention when you are using your worktops, then consider quartz. Quartz is a manufactured product, which can be altered to have the appearance of marble. All three materials are excellent choices for both kitchen and bathroom, it just depends which material suits your manner of use the best.
