Refresh your Kitchen with New Marble Worktops

marble kitchen worktops - Surrey Marble and GraniteIf 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.

Advantages of Stone

As expert stone workers, at Surrey Marble and Granite we’ve learned everything we can about stone, and it’s uses in domestic kitchens. There are many advantages to stone worktops, including:

  • Incredibly durable
  • Hard and tough
  • Difficult to chip, crack or scratch
  • Difficult to stain or mark
  • Hygienic
  • Wide range of colours and textures
  • Cool surface, ideal for pastry making and cooking
  • Safe food preparation area
  • Easy to clean

Stone worktops have been popular for centuries, and you can still see original marble kitchen worktops in place in some of the grand old country houses. Thanks to modern transport and technologies, the unique combination of elegance and practicality offered by stone is now available to all.

Any Kitchen, any Countertop

As professional stone cutters, we can create bespoke pieces in any stone we offer. This means that you can replace any kitchen countertops with stone worktops of exactly the same size. A one-for-one replacement makes the project simpler, quicker and cheaper so you could have brand-new marble kitchen worktops in just a few short weeks.

If you’d like to make a few changes, we’re happy to help. Stone is self-supporting, which means that it’s easy to create an overhang or an unusual shape to help you make better use of your kitchen. If you’ve been wishing for extra countertop space or would like a stone floor to match your marble kitchen worktops, we can find you the perfect solution. Whatever your needs, we’re happy to talk your project through, so give us a call today and make use of our expertise.

Marble is one of the most beautiful natural stones. Its stunning veining patterns develop through the natural action of water and minerals over time. Each slab is unique, and each slice off a slab has its own distinct variations. This means that when you use marble as a design feature, you are truly creating something no one else can replicate.
