Wood grain effect? Stone? Ceramic? On trend polished concrete? How do you choose the right replacement kitchen worktop for your Blackpool kitchen?
Because your kitchen worktop sits horizontally, it’s highly visible. That means it’s as important to choose a worktop for its visual appeal as it is for its performance. Of course, performance matters too, because the worktop is also the surface within the home that sees more use than any other.
Talk to JemCraft about fitting a replacement worktop for your Blackpool kitchen and you’ll be spoilt for choice of surfaces that balance looks with practicality. So here’s our guide to making your selection a little easier:
Straight or corners?
A simple rule of thumb: if it’s a straight piece of worktop you can choose any material and the finished effect will be spectacular. And happily, because fewer angles means fewer cuts, it’ll cost less too.
Have a winding worktop with lots of corners? Choose stone or ceramic, because you’ll be able to achieve seamless corners. If you want to choose a laminate, opt for one with a plain or delicate design, because the joints will be less noticeable.
All our replacement kitchen worktops are designed to withstand high temperatures, but certain surfaces bring certain advantages. Stone, ceramic and concrete are generally safe to be used as a cutting surface; laminates typically aren’t and you’ll need to use chopping boards. Some stone surfaces and concrete need to be specially sealed to resist stains and damage from chemicals. That’s not typically an issue with laminates.
Here’s a smart idea for your Blackpool kitchen worktop replacement. If you would really prefer a stone or ceramic worktop but the budget won’t stretch quite that far, why not go for a mix of styles, with ceramic in the most visible (or most heavily used) areas of the kitchen, and a laminate everywhere else?
Mixing styles is hugely popular right now, so you can cut the cost of your replacement kitchen worktop and be right on trend too.
