    Design your own Stone Kitchen Worktops

    If you’re completely gutting the kitchen, you’ve got plenty of choices to make, but also plenty of freedom. It’s important to consider the kitchen as a whole in these cases, and you should think about how you’ll use it, not just when you’re cooking for a dinner party but when you’re having breakfast, reading the paper or even washing the dog. Stone floors are easy to clean, hard to damage and very durable. Modern engineered stones allow you to coordinate textures while choosing different colours, and many people enjoy having matching stone floor and work surfaces in different hues.

    Preserving existing features

    The first question to ask yourself is how much of the current kitchen do you want to keep? If you’re preserving period features, working with an awkward space or want to keep your current cabinets, this should inform the rest of your decisions. Coordinating new granite or marble worktops with existing features is a great way to freshen up a kitchen while preserving much of the original material.

    Choosing a stone

    The key issues when choosing a stone are:

    • Price
    • Care
    • Matching
    • Colour

    While we pride ourselves on offering affordable marble and granite worktops, processed stones and other products, it’s true that prices vary and your budget may limit your options. Processed stones are easier to match, as they’re more uniform, and easier to care for as they’re stronger than natural stone and already sealed. Processed stone also comes in a wider range of colours. On the other hand, marble worktops have a unique, natural veining pattern, and granite worktops have their own lustre and textures.

    Worktops and beyond

    Marble and granite worktops are popular in the UK, and some people forget that stone has other uses. Both marble and granite have been used in artworks, floors and walls for centuries. Processed stones have also increased your options as they’re available in thinner tiles. This means that they cause less strain on existing structures than natural stone, so can be used in innovative and unusual ways. We’ve seen tiled table tops, and even coordinating stone work matching drawers to countertops.

    Ask the experts

    If you have any questions about granite or marble worktops, choosing the right stone for your kitchen or are wondering whether your kitchen could be refreshed in an affordable way, simply get in touch and ask. At Surrey Marble and Granite, our goal is to create beautiful, practical kitchens and we’re happy to have a friendly discussion about your needs.

    Stone floors can be made of large slabs, small slabs or thin tiles. In many cases, tiles are the best choice as they’re economical, lighter and easy to install over existing floor structures. With an enormous range of colours, textures and materials available, limestone tiles are a great choice for any home.
