How To Choose The Best Kitchen Worktop
Posted on 18th March 2021 at 15:07
The kitchen is typically the busy hub of any home, and we’ve spent more time in our kitchens, whether it’s a place to gather, cook and eat, or it has become your WFH office space. The materials we use in the kitchen, however, are getting more meat and tear than ever.
If you’ve been planning a kitchen makeover or refurbishment, then the choice of materials is vital. Your kitchen worktops need to be easy to maintain and need to be durable enough to last for many years. We have a look at some of the features of quartz worktops to consider.
Quartz is made up of raw materials mixed with resin. It has high scratch, stain and heat resistance. While it is generally maintenance-free, it does require some looking after. This is due to the resin component.
Quartz comes in a range of finishes, including polished, textured and suede. Unlike natural stone, however, which becomes more porous the less polished the finish, quartz is non-porous so your choice of finish won’t impact durability.
Mixing the finish of your worktop is a great way to stretch your budget, and a great way to introduce finishes and designs that you love without worrying about durability.
You might prefer a timber feature section on an island or quartz countertop. If you are mixing materials, there needs to be an expansion joint built into the countertop to allow the timber to expand otherwise the man-made material might crack.
Finally, mixing materials is a great way to introduce natural stone without the worry of maintenance. You might go for a decorative natural stone as a splashback and then choose complementary man-made materials for the work surfaces.
