Let’s face it – designing a kitchen can be a fairly costly thing to do.
From big decisions like which type of oven to go for, to smaller decisions like which kitchen cupboard knobs to choose, the costs involved with designing a kitchen can quickly mount up as time goes on.
As such, it’s important to budget both sensibly and practically before and during your kitchen’s redesign. After all, the last thing you will want to do is splash out on all the high-end options to find that the design you end up with doesn’t really work as planned.
So, with this in mind, we thought we’d run through some of the best options to think about when it comes to one of the more major outlays in your kitchen’s design: the worktop.
From laminate worktops to wooden worktops, join us as we highlight the best kitchen worktops to suit every type of budget.
Smaller Budgets: Go For A Laminate Worktop
With so many decisions to make when designing a kitchen, it’s important to prioritise where you want your hard-earned money to go.
If, for example, you’d rather have a worktop that’s more purposeful than it is pretty, and is much cheaper than some of the more high-end options, look no further than a laminate worktop.
Easy to maintain, simple to install and ideal for homes with busier kitchens, laminate worktops also come available in a huge range of designs, making it easy to identify the best choice for your kitchen.
Whether you’re looking to achieve more of a farmhouse or contemporary look, laminate worktops can seamlessly fit into more or less any type of kitchen design, being as bold or subtle as you want them to be.
Larger Budget: Go For A Solid Wooden Worktop
While laminate worktops may offer a number of benefits, if you’re looking to achieve a real wow factor in your kitchen and have the money available to spend, a solid wood worktop is the ideal choice.
Available in a wide variety of different woods, solid wood worktops are known for their natural beauty, providing your kitchen with a real centrepiece to draw the eye.
They are also known for being highly durable, especially when properly maintained, treated and looked after, using a variety of chopping boards and trivets to protect the surface.
Oiling them on a regular basis with a specific type of linseed, Danish, teak or Osmo oil will also keep them looking their best over the long run, minimising the need to repair or replace them should any accidental spillages, scratches or burns occur.
If you are still struggling to decide which type of worktop is right for you and your budget, don’t worry – we can help.
