There are three key things to bear in mind when nailing the design of a new kitchen: the layout, the colour scheme and the overall theme you’re trying to achieve.
Get each of these areas right and you’ll be laughing, quickly becoming home to a kitchen design that not only looks incredible but acts as a centrepiece for the rest of the house to follow.
But, get one of these areas wrong and you could end up left with an expensive job to fix, quickly regretting why you didn’t take more time to consider how you wanted your kitchen to look.
With this in mind, we’re here to help you identify the best worktop options when trying to achieve more of a modern, contemporary feel within your kitchen.
The worktop is one of – if not – the most important aspects of a kitchen design, after all. So, it’s important to prioritise the right choice for you before deciding on the colour scheme, handle options or anything else.
Why not add the smooth elegant look of a five-star hotel to your kitchen, for a fraction of the price? The look and feel of marble laminate is a fabulous option when you’re going for the luxurious aesthetic that doesn’t cost the earth and require hours of maintenance.
Offering a premium look at a much more cost-effective price than real marble, our Carrera Marble Compact laminate worktop features a smooth matt finish and flawlessly mimics the appearance of even the most premium marble.
Being a laminate worktop, it also comes with the added bonuses of being incredibly easy to maintain and simple to install, providing your home with a contemporary look that is truly built to last.
Nothing says sleek sophistication better than a Black Sparkle laminate worktop.
A highly beloved and glamourous addition to any kitchen, this type of laminate worktop symbolises quality, style and modernity, featuring a sprinkling of stardust particles across a gorgeous matt black surface.
This, in turn, provides you with a kitchen worktop that not only adds a slice of ‘wow’ factor to your kitchen but is also incredibly easy to clean and install.
While on the topic of black worktops, if you’re looking for a kitchen worktop that is as durable as it is beautiful, then a black oak wooden worktop is a great option to consider.
An exceptionally luxurious addition to any home, this form of wooden worktop is a lot darker in tone than some of the more classic types of wood like ash or beech but, because of this, it is able to effortlessly add a degree of sleek modernity to any kitchen.
While slightly more expensive than laminate worktops, opting for black oak will provide you with a highly durable worktop that will maintain your kitchen’s contemporary look and feel long into the future – but only when maintained correctly.
Here at the House of Worktops, we understand how difficult it can be to decide which type of worktop is right for your kitchen. So, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or queries about any of the types of worktops mentioned above.
