Three Top Tips You Should Know Before Choosing Your Kitchen Worktops

Buying the most suitable kitchen worktop for your home can be a daunting task. With a wide variety on offer, it’s easy to settle for a surface that turns out not to be the right fit for your kitchen or lifestyle. The kitchen is the heart of the home, which is why it is vital to find a worktop that fits into your lifestyle.

Here at RO Surfaces, we know just how much of a difficult decision it can be to pick a practical worktop to suit you and your needs, which is why we have put together three top tips you should keep in mind when choosing your perfect kitchen worktop.

  1. Assess Your Budget

The first thing you should think about when looking into kitchen worktops is your budget. There are many materials to fit every budget; however, you should be aware that certain materials are more costly than others.

A kitchen worktop is an investment which is why before you start shopping around, you should think about how much you would like to spend. Everyone has a different budget, and so it is best to work out how much you are willing to pay and begin your search from there.

  1. Material

Another main factor to consider is the material for your worktop; this will be linked to your budget as materials like marble and granite are more expensive than solid surfaces.

Although it can be easy to get carried away with thinking about the style of your worktop, the properties of each one are also fundamental to consider. For example, granite and quartz are both very strong; the materials are heat, stain and scratch-resistant, which is why they’re perfect for a busy family kitchen. Although marble is highly aesthetic, it can scuff and scratch a lot easier than quartz. Solid surface is easier on the budget and is available in a variety of colours.

  1. Maintenance

Not every worktop is suitable for all household kitchen types as some require more maintenance than others. Below is a list of low vs high maintenance worktops

  • Laminate
