    Choosing a kitchen worktop

    A kitchen worktop is a hard working piece: it’s not only the place where most food preparation is done, but it’s often the key visual element in a kitchen design. As the worktop is so important, it’s well worth choosing a high quality piece which will be both beautiful and practical – and one which will still look good in five, ten or even twenty years.

    Stone worktops come in a wide range of natural colours, from classic marble white through to rich reds and yellows. Modern treatments and finishes give an even wider choice, from royal blue to lime green, so there’s a colour for every kitchen style.

    Advantages of stone

    Stone work surfaces are ideal for kitchens as they are both practical and beautiful. Each piece of stone is slightly different, formed by natural pressures sometimes over thousands of years. Carefully chosen and properly treated, the stone kitchen worktops offered by Surrey Marble and Granite are:

    • Durable
    • High-quality
    • Stain resistant
    • Scratch resistant
    • Heat resistant

    Properly cared for, a marble or granite countertop can last decades, and still look as good as the day it was installed.

    Granite, marble and more

    Granite and marble are among the most popular kitchen worktop materials, and with good reason. They are a surprisingly flexible design choice, and can add an elegance and lustre to a vintage-inspired kitchen or a minimalist modern design.

    However, there are many other stone worktop options. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’ve selected a number of the best stones currently available and offer both natural and engineered stone worktops. Different stones have different advantages:

    • Granite
      Natural strength and beauty combine to make a versatile, durable worktop.
    • Marble
      Highly decorative and adds a sophisticated touch to any kitchen.
    • Silestone
      Has anti-bacterial properties and is available in several bright colours
    • Limestone
      Hygienic, low maintenance and long-lasting
    • Quarella
      Very easy to clean and also resists scratches, stains and burns marks.
    • Arena Stone
      Very hard and available in a wide range of neutral and bright colours.
    • Cesarstone
      Low maintenance, non-porous stone in over 20 natural shades.
    • Samsung Radianz Quartz
      Incredibly durable stone with a subtle quartz glitter.
    • Okite
      Specially engineered for kitchens, it is hygienic, safe and very strong.
    • Compac
      A versatile stone with a wide range of colour options.
