Possible problems choosing kitchen worktops

When designing or renovating your kitchen, there are a number of aspects that will need to be considered, including whether or not it’s time to choose new worktops. Just like choosing the type of flooring and cabinets, selecting worktops can also prove problematic.

If you fail to consider the bigger picture, you could end up selecting the wrong type, style or colour worktop. This is particularly upsetting if you invest a significant amount of money in natural stone worktops. Take your time and pair all of the elements of your kitchen together before making any purchases.

Choosing the wrong stone for your kitchen is another potential pitfall. While most types of natural stone are fairly durable and extremely beautiful, you should consider your needs and the fact that these worktops are meant to last for many years to come.

It’s also so much more than simply choosing a colour and pattern. You will need to choose between various finishes, edges, and if you would like the stone worktops to extend along the wall to meet the backsplash or to cover a windowsill. All of these extras need to be included in the initial order for best results.
