What you need to know about Interior Design and Kitchen worktops

If you are getting a new kitchen or want to remodel your old kitchen, there are a number of different things you need to know about interior design to make sure that your kitchen worktops are getting the job done for you. The main thing about kitchen worktops is that they are going to play a central part of your interior design for your kitchen or workspace.

Many people make the mistake of choosing nice looking kitchen worktops, but not really designing the interior around them. A good kitchen worktop will pull a design together and create a cohesive feel.

The first step towards choosing a good set of kitchen worktops for your interior design is to figure out what colour kitchen worktops you want. These days, you can get a kitchen worktop in just about any surface you can think of, but not necessarily any colour and any surface. By choosing the colour first, you can avoid the issues that will arise when you end up designing your workspace around a colour that you do not like instead of a colour that you do.

The reason why picking a colour is first is because having the right colour will determine the overall mood of a room. Different colours evoke different emotions naturally and it is a very big decision to basically say I would like to be feeling like this a certain amount of hours versus that. When you start to think about colour that way, then it makes a lot more sense when you start thinking about kitchen worktops as well.

The other part of redesigning a kitchen you need to be wary about is the kind of appliances you will be using. You will need to know if you are going to go after a contrasting look or something that looks very industrial, the appliances in the kitchen will play a large role too.

Too many people design their kitchens solely around the kitchen worktops that they will be using, and forget to look at the bigger picture, which is key when looking for kitchen worktops.

While the kitchen worktop is arguably the most important part of the kitchen, kitchen worktops are also overrated for the same reasons that they are so highly regarded. This is why starting with an overall feel or mood for the kitchen will let you take a step back and see things from 100 meters instead of 3 meters. The different perspective will allow you to take another look at what you really want from your kitchen worktops.

Almost all kitchen worktops will perform equally. It is just a matter of figuring out which kind of worktop you need for your situation.

Interior design can be tricky; but by starting at the end result that you want, instead of the beginning, you will be able to figure out what works for you, and the kind of kitchen worktops that you should be considering.

  As expert stone workers, we’re obviously biased in favour of our favourite material. However, even to us it’s clear that although stone is fantastically varied, resilient and durable, it’s not the right material for every job. It’s also true that there are cheaper options available. So with all that in mind, how can you tell if stone is the right choice for you?   How much more expensive is stone really? Per meter, natural stone is one of the most expensive worktop materials. However, it’s comparable to high quality […]
