Often referred to as the “heart of the home”, to many families, the kitchen is more than just a place to cook a quick dinner. Whether you’re looking to emulate all the cosiness of a countryside cottage or you want to bring your home into the 21st century with all the modcons on the market, you’ll need to make sure the foundations of this all-important room are taken care of first – and that’s where your worktops come in.
As a staple part of the kitchen, worktops will house your practical cooking implements, provide the surfaces you need to whip up a culinary masterpiece and, in terms of aesthetics, tie the styling of the space together. When it comes to pure stone granite worktops, colours are aplenty – which can make the task of choosing the shade for you a tricky one. The same goes for the variety of crushed quartz worktop colours if this is your material of choice. So, where do you begin? Allow us to help.
Go bold with black
If you’re on the search for a luxury look that also makes cleaning up a breeze, then a black granite or quartz worktop might just be the best option for you. Offering a sleek finish that can add opulence to standard worktops or breakfast bars, you can choose to opt for Absolute Black or add character with shades like Marquina and Cosmos Nero Mirror. Black oozes class, so if you’re keen to achieve a minimalist home without losing grandeur, this is the way to go.
Stay classy with white
For an ultra-modern home where crisp lines and clean vibes rule, you might want to consider a white quartz worktop like Carrara or Unique Calacatta – the latter of which offers all the class of white but has a marble effect running throughout. If white is your preferred colour choice, you can always add a pop of vibrancy with your accessories. This will allow you to keep the canvas of the room fairly blank, meaning you can switch up the theme as and when suits you, without needing to shell out for major home updates.
Keep it timeless with grey
For a kitchen that will stand the test of time, you’ll want to opt for fixtures and fittings that never go out of style – and Steel Grey granite worktops fit the bill perfectly. As well as granite options, you’ll also find some tempting grey shades in quartz options, including Unique Argento and Smoke Grey. A step up from white, grey provides a touch of colour without overwhelming the space – leaving you with the option to go for an overall grey theme or add colour as you see fit.
