Naturally, when you are choosing a kitchen countertop, the material of which it’s made will be your first, and most important, consideration.
To find the ideal material for your kitchen, it's important to determine how it will be used and how much you have to spend.
Quartz Kitchen Countertops
Quartz Kitchen Countertops remain a popular choice with Irish homeowners thanks to their unparalleled selection of colours and styles. A manufactured stone, Quartz – sometimes referred to as engineered stone – has been specifically developed for the needs of the domestic kitchen. Quartz is extremely durable and has been developed to be stain and chip resistant.
It's sleek, stylish and fully customisable look has made Quartz an increasingly popular choice with Irish households.
Strong, durable and an instant statement piece, granite countertops remain one of Ireland’s most popular kitchen worktop materials.
Granite is a natural porous stone that adds a finishing flourish to any kitchen design.
They are non-porous, and therefore do not absorb odours, stains or germs, which also makes them easy to clean.
They are not damaged by high temperatures, so you can set hot cooking pans down directly on the countertop.
Once you’ve decided on a surfacing material, you’ll need to choose a colour. If you think that resale value may be a consideration at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep your choice fairly low-key. However, if your only goal is to have your kitchen reflect your personality, choose any colour you like! If you choose a countertop in an unusual colour or create a boisterous ceramic tile mosaic, make that the focal point of your kitchen and keep other furnishings neutral. Also, consider whether your kitchen is visible to other areas of the house.
