Why You Should Invest in Stone Worktops

Bookmark and Share Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Redecorating your kitchen is a major project that takes careful planning. In order to achieve the look you love without breaking the bank, you may need to make a few important decisions about which features to prioritise in your budget.

One thing that is worthy of investment is the quality of your surfaces. Your worktops have a big impact on the look of your kitchen, so they need to be able to withstand daily use without beginning to look untidy or worn.

Solid granite and marble worktops provide a beautiful surface that simply cannot be rivalled by cheaper vinyl alternatives. The ideal finish for your worktop depends on the way that you use it. An open plan kitchen that is used for entertaining might suit a high impact gloss finish, but a matt surface helps to hide minor scrapes and scuffs, so this could be a better option for a kitchen that is heavily used.

With a little on-going maintenance your stone will retain its look for years to come and can even add to the value of your property. Since granite and marble worktops are so popular among prospective buyers, they also help to make a lasting impression that can improve the overall saleability of your home.
