When choosing new worktops for your bathroom or kitchen, it’s important to understand your needs while keeping your budget in mind. With so many options from which to choose, it’s easier than ever to find the perfect fit for your home.
Stainless steel is often used in professional kitchens due to the hygiene benefits. However, such worktops are cold and prone to scratches. Wood, on the other hand, is warm but more prone to stains and can harbour bacteria.
Experts agree that natural stone offers the greatest value for money in terms of price versus durability and lifespan. Natural stone worktops can be sealed to ensure that they stay beautiful and, provided you avoid cutting directly on the surface, they will also remain scratch free. By following a few simple care instructions, your stone worktops will look great for many years to come. They will require a greater financial investment at first, but they will not need to be replaced anytime soon. In addition, natural stone worktops help increase the appeal and value of your home which means that they will more than earn their keep from the day they are installed to the day you decide to sell your home.
