Tiling Kitchen Surfaces

Everyone wants a durable, easy to clean and hygienic kitchen surface. Stone tiles are a great solution, and look as good as new year after year. With a choice of natural and processed stone, it’s easy to find the right look for your kitchen, whether that’s classic white marble tiles or trendy jewel tones.

As stone is an incredibly tough material, it can be used on floors, worktops and walls, giving you the flexibility to create the kitchen of your dreams combined with the security of knowing it will last and last.

Create Your Own Design

Even the most beautiful stone can look bland if overused, so it’s great to get creative. Stone tiles let you mix and match different stones to create visual interest while maintaining a single overall theme. Add a splash of colour, a band of texture or perhaps a repeating design. As an example, using two colours of the same marble tiles could give you a chess board, stripes, or an apparently random pattern. Add a third or fourth colour, and the options are endless.

Stone tiles come pre-shaped or can be cut to fit, giving you more options for creating a unique design. Cutting to fit is ideal for dealing with awkward spaces, whether it’s creating a beautiful border for a period fireplace or a splash back for a busy stove. Our experts can offer advice on selecting the right for each space.

Making Life Simple

Stone is durable and hygienic. It doesn’t absorb smells, liquids or germs. It’s easy to clean, and one advantage of using stone throughout is that you can use the same gentle cleaners on all your kitchen surfaces. In most cases, simply wiping clean with a damp cloth is sufficient, giving you more time to enjoy your kitchen.

As domestic stone can easily last for decades without damage, a stone kitchen is a sound investment for the future. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we know that accidents do happen and we can help you match tiles in marble, granite and the other stones we stock, if yours have been damaged.

Natural and Processed Stone

The subtle hues and delicate patterning of granite or marble tiles are unique, so each tile will be slightly different. By contrast, engineered stone provides a much more uniform look. At the same time, the methods used in processing it allow for a much wider range of colours and shades, from granite black to bright blue, lemon yellow to sandy brown and everything in between.

Many people choose to use either one or the other in their home, but this can hold you back. Both types of stone have similar properties, and are equally easy to clean and maintain. Mixing processed and natural stone tiles in a project gives you a much broader palette, and lets you find the right look for your home.

Quartz worktops are becoming an increasingly popular choice for worktops. They are the fastest growing sector in the work surface market globally, even over traditional choices such as marble and granite worktops. When undertaking home improvements a new worktop can refresh and update a kitchen or bathroom, or a new splash-back or sink area add value to your home. Engineered quartz is incredibly durable and therefore is a good option for surfacing. Most branded quartz contains around 93% of pure quartz and with the rest made up of resins and pigments.
