Improve the look and functionality of your stone worktops

Natural worktops in your kitchen and bathroom serve a wonderful functional purpose. Not only do they look lovely, but they are most appreciated for their durability and the fact that they will not go out of style. If you want to make the most out of your stone surfaces, consider the following features.

Drainer grooves

By including drainer grooves next the your undermount sink, you will give your kitchen a lovely streamlined look and it will prove practical too. These grooves prevent water from settling on the worktop or dripping on the floor.

Kitchen islands

Islands add style and they are practical too. You can use this extra space for food preparation or as a place to serve family meals. Your family or friends can even sit here and keep you company while you cook. Beneath the worktop, you can install cabinets that offer additional storage.

Rounded corners

There are many options when it comes to the edges of your worktops. Rounded corners are one of the most popular for several reasons. Not only do they look better, but they are also a safety feature for those with children. Even if you do not have children, you might have young guests visit and it’s a good idea to keep any risks to a minimum. If you wish to sell your home one day, rounded corners will also prove appealing to those looking to buy.

If you want to make the most of your stone worktops but you are not sure exactly how to go about it, ask your stone supplier. Not only are they familiar with the various types of stones and colours, but they can help highlight various design and finish options for best results.
