If you are happy with the style and layout of your kitchen, you can easily give it a make over by replacing tired kitchen countertops with new stone worktops. As worktops are in constant use, many families find that wooden or vinyl worktops quickly become scratched, battered and unattractive. Replacing them with durable granite or marble kitchen worktops can give your kitchen a new lease of life.
Why Replace Worktops?
Kitchen countertops get a thousand knocks and bumps everyday. From food preparation to kid’s craft activities, the surfaces in your kitchen can really take a beating. Many modern worktops are made of varnished or laminated wood, often with a vinyl or plastic cover. Water, heat and sharp edges can all easily damage these surfaces, which means that ordinary use can quickly leave them looking dull, scratched and unappealing. These abrasions are also an excellent place for germs to hide and multiply.
Vinyl and plastic laminates often come in bright colours or patterns, some of which date very quickly. Replacing just the worktops in a kitchen can transform your space, making an old kitchen look new. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we offer a comprehensive range of processed and natural stone worktops, including granite and marble kitchen worktops, giving you high-quality, durable materials with timeless elegance.
