  1. Granite worktops
  2. Quartz worktops
  3. Solid wood worktops
  4. Laminate worktops

Granite worktops

Granite worktops offer a lot of durability. They’re heat resistant, hard wearing and are extremely easy to clean. They therefore provide a lot of reassurance to high functioning families who live busy lifestyles and who favour the classic look.

However, it’s important to bear in mind that granite worktops come with a substantial price tag attached. If you’re a young family who are just starting out, they may not be the perfect fit for you.   

Quartz worktops

Like granite worktops, quartz worktops are also hard wearing and easy to clean. They’re most suited to the modern look and complement our sleek handleless kitchens really well.

Due to their cost, quartz worktops would be a great option for an on-the-go family who are in a secure financial position. You can also get a quartz look for amazing value with our laminate worktops.

Solid wood worktops

Wood worktops are a lot more cost-effective than stone, and many consider them to be better value for money. They age well and are a versatile option due to being available in a variety of colours and grains.

If you purchase wood worktops, it’s essential to bear in mind the maintenance required to keep them looking pristine. They’re relatively easy to scratch and stain, so need to be handled carefully and treated with care. They’re great for achieving the traditional look in your classic kitchen but are best suited to more relaxed households.

Laminate worktops

Available in a selection of life-like stone and wood finishes, our range of laminate worktops are great for achieving the bespoke look in your new kitchen. They offer superb value for money but are also an extremely high-quality product. It’s important to ensure that you protect your laminate worktops from hot items, but with their scratch resistant surfaces and hardwearing nature, you can rest assured that their top-quality appearance will be easy to maintain.
