Learn which kitchen worktop suits your cooking style.

While many homeowners think about the kitchen design that will suit their personality and cooking style, it’s important to also think about how a worktop will impact your use of the kitchen. How you use your kitchen will affect the wear and tear of your worktops, so it’s crucial to make a smart decision. Continue reading to learn which kitchen worktop suits your cooking style.  

Lots Of Spices

Do you love to use a variety of spices in your cooking? If you find yourself using exotic, brightly colored spices and ingredients in your meals, you should look for a nonporous material for your kitchen worktop. Some spices, such as turmeric, paprika, or chili powder, can stain a delicate surface, so if you use these spices often, you’ll want to choose a material like glass, stainless steel, or Corian. Cooking with spices usually means using pans over high heat, and you don’t want to have to worry about laminate worktops getting damaged by pots and pans. Instead, consider countertop materials that are not easily damaged by heat. 


Do you love to have friends and family over for dinner parties or social occasions with appetizers and drinks? If so, you need worktops that work for your daily life as well as entertaining multiple guests. You may want a worktop that stands out and looks beautiful but is also able to withstand all kinds of spills and stains that come with a party. Stone materials such as quartz, granite, and ceramics are all great choices, as they have a stunning appearance and are durable enough to handle spills. However, remember that natural stone is porous, so it will need to be treated regularly to avoid issues with water.

Cooking For Family Every Night

If you cook dinner for your family almost every night, you need a kitchen worktop that is easy to clean and maintain and is very durable. Preparing for a whole family is enough work- the cleanup process should be as easy as possible! High gloss kitchen units and easily cracked worktops are likely not the best choices for you as they are quite high-maintenance. Laminate worktops are durable and practical, and the classic option of granite worktops is an excellent choice for most homes.
