    A Luxury Marble Kitchen For Less!

    Creating a marble kitchen an exciting project. Marble kitchen worktops have an innate air of luxury and elegance which is sought after the world over. With a stunning selection of colours and textures to choose from, marble is more popular than ever. As a result, many families are asking themselves: how can I get a luxurious marble kitchen worktop for less money?

     

    Consider a wide range of marbles

    luxury-marble-2Marble is found all over the world, and there is an enormous range of price points for marble kitchen worktops. If you’ve got your heart set on a rare marble from a particular quarry, the price will be high but if you’re willing to consider marble from less exclusive sources, the price can be much more affordable. 

    Look at the samples in person 

    Visit our showroom in person to get a full understanding of the various types of marble and the finishes available. Being able to see and handle different types of stone finished in different ways will help you make strong decisions when it comes time to choose the details for your own marble kitchen worktops.

    Get it right the first time

    Marble can’t be stretched, nudged, tweaked or otherwise eased into place. It’s essential to cut with millimetre precision otherwise a slab can be ruined. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we make accurate templates for all our marble kitchen worktops. Wherever possible, we make these on site, to ensure that there’s no room for error.

    Avoid shipping stone unnecessarily 

    Many firms in Surrey fit kitchens using marble cut by a third party. In some cases, the marble slab is cut and finished overseas before being shipped to the UK. This means that if any adjustments need to be made, the marble kitchen worktop will need to be shipped, possibly long distances. As marble is heavy and awkward to move, each transfer is expensive.

    Make the most of your slab

    Luxury-Marble-1Marble is quarried in blocks which are then cut into slabs and shipped to stoneworkers. If you understand what size slab the stone you’ve chosen is shipped in, you can make the most of a single slab when planning your kitchen. For example, you may choose to create a curved worktop or kitchen counter and use the off-cuts as matching shelves or a mosaic backsplash

    Talk to the experts 

    Unless you’re thinking of retraining as a stone worker, there’s no reason why you should need to know all the details of how marble kitchen worktops are created and which features are more expensive. Instead, talk to our experienced Surrey Marble and Granite team. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have and to give you a free, no-obligation quote so you can start planning your affordable marble kitchen for less.
