If you have natural stone worktops that are still in good condition but you feel like a change, you can opt for an alternative finish. Just because you chose a particular finish at first, this does not mean that you are stuck with this style or colour for life. Here are some changes that you can consider.
Turn matte to gloss
If you have matte worktops, you can have the stone professionally polished to give it the most amazing shine. There are varying degrees of glossiness. Semi-gloss and high polish options should be compared and considered carefully before making a choice. It is also worth noting that highly glossy surfaces tend to show fingerprints easier which means that they will need to be wiped down more often. Especially if your worktops are darker in colour.
When you think about sealing your worktops, you might imagine a clear or transparent sealant. In many cases, this is the type of product that most people choose. However, if you want a bit of a change, you can opt for colour enhancing sealers instead. Different sealing products have different benefits. It’s also important to take note of the colour scheme of the room before you choose this kind of sealer.
Update other elements
If you want to give your worktops a new look but you are not able to polish or apply colour enhancing sealers, you could make other changes in the room. Consider replacing the cabinet doors and fixtures like door handles to create a greater contrast between the worktops and the rest of your furniture.
A small change can go a very long way and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to transform your worktops and the room in general. Carefully selected changes is what redesigning and remodelling are all about.
