Unique Kitchen Worktops

If you are looking for special kitchen worktops for your kitchen then you have come to the right place. These days there are quite a few different kitchen worktops surfaces that you can use when you are designing your ideal kitchen worktops. In this article, we will be going over a few of the different surfaces for kitchen worktops and the pros and cons of using them.

First and foremost, the most common kind of unique kitchen worktops would be granite. Granite kitchen worktops usually are fairly unique, but common depending on where you live. Granite kitchen worktops can be unique because of the various colors you can get granite kitchen worktops in and the trimming you can get done on the side. The cons of having granite kitchen worktops are that they tend to be really, really heavy. We are talking so heavy that the worktop does not even have to be bolted down. Another con that goes along with the worktop being heavy is that you can’t repair it easily.

If your granite kitchen worktops start to crack at all, it will most likely cost you a ton of money to get it fixed, because you can’t just get more kitchen worktops. To get granite kitchen worktops fixed, it can be pretty expensive depending on the depth of the crack or scratch.

On the plus side granite kitchen worktops are extremely hard and then you can use the entire surface as a cutting board without having to worry about scratching it. Bacteria also have a hard time attaching to the surface so you do not have to worry about that sort of thing.

If granite kitchen worktops are not unique enough for you, there are some other options. A very unique kitchen worktop surface that is much different from granite is bamboo. Bamboo is kind of similar to a wood worktop, which is not very special, but the unique properties of bamboo make it a very good choice for kitchen worktops. Bamboo kitchen worktops can be moulded to any shape and size and offer a unique style that is hard to find anywhere else.

The antibacterial properties of the bamboo make it hard for bacteria to grow unlike other natural kitchen worktops that you might find. All you have to do is wipe the bamboo worktop down with a cloth when you are done. But, because bamboo is pretty light, you will need to have the worktop bolted down.

Another con is if you do happen to chip or crack your bamboo kitchen worktops, it could be extremely hard to repair and maintain the original look that you sought after with the bamboo kitchen worktops.

Bamboo kitchen worktops and Granite kitchen worktops are two unique kitchen worktops that you can consider for your every day kitchen. Either choice for your kitchen worktops will give you a look that no one else has, without breaking your budget or stressing you out.

Radianz Quartz Kitchen

  Quartz worktops are made of pieces of natural stone bonded together with a small amount of adhesive. The stone used is quartz, one of nature’s toughest materials, and a very versatile one. Quartz worktops are 90-99% quartz. The exact ratio depends on the manufacturer and type of quartz worktop. As an example, Samsung Radianz Quartz is 93% quartz, as it is quite fine grained.
