5 Ways to Transform your Kitchen

 

Ready for a kitchen makeover? You don’t need to replace your entire kitchen at once to get a great deal and make a real difference. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we have lots of options that will help you refresh your kitchen now, while also laying the foundations for a complete overhaul in the future.

1. Add a Statement Splashback

Replacing the splashback adds a splash of new colour to your kitchen without affecting the fixtures and fittings. It’s an affordable way to give the room a new look. Stone tiles or larger sheets are ideal for a splashback behind a stove or sink. Stone isn’t damaged by heat or water and very rarely chips or stains. This means that you can splash boiling water on stone tiles or spill hot soup without worrying about your worktops – ideal for a busy kitchen.

2. Choose a New Countertop

Worktops and cabinet doors are usually the first areas to show wear or to age. If you’re happy with the layout of your kitchen, replacing wood or vinyl with a stone worktop can give your kitchen a new lease of life. Choose a bright statement colour, or go with a classic neutral shade. Stone worktops are incredibly durable, so choose a colour you’ll love to live with. With the vast range of hues available, it’s easy to create a new kitchen that looks great with your existing cabinets and will also look fabulous when you replace them in a few years.

3. Install a New Island

Kitchen islands and breakfast bars stand apart from the rest of the work surfaces, so often use contrasting materials. If you want to change the layout of your kitchen without altering some of the existing structures, adding a breakfast bar or island can be a great solution. Naturally, we recommend stone worktops. They’re a particularly good choice if you like to bake, as they’re not only food safe but the coolness is ideal for properly handling pastry.

4. Add Statement Tiles

Who says tiles have to cover a whole wall? If there’s particularly busy area of your kitchen – perhaps where the kids kick as they eat, or where pets leave marks on the wall – stone tiles can protect the wall while also adding a stylish touch. Key areas to consider are often behind sinks and stoves and low down near the floor. A mosaic of smaller tiles can be a statement on its own, and no one need know that you were mainly covering up the black marks from a thousand tiny kicks!

5. Install a Stone Floor

If you’re looking for a long-lasting change that’s also versatile enough to suit many different decorating styles, a stone floor is the ideal choice. Stone tiles or slabs can often be installed around existing fittings, giving you a fresh look now and a solid foundation for the kitchen of your dreams.

Many people expect stone to be, well, stone coloured. However, the natural variation of marble and granite runs from black to white, and ochre reds to greens and yellows. Add in the astonishing range of colours offered by quartz worktops and you’ll have a veritable painter’s palette of hues.
