Which worktop should I choose?

Dream Doors Worktop

The options on kitchen worktops are wide and varied, but the first piece of advice is- always choose quality. A worktop needs to fulfil a practical function as well as a visual one. Regardless of the material used, a worktop must be hard wearing in order to stand up to the demands of the modern kitchen – generally this means exposure to both heat and sharp implements – though in a family home, the demands of a worktop can often go well beyond these things.

Where budget is a primary focus then laminates are difficult to beat – they are flexible and easy to cut, and with Dream Doors they come in a huge array of colours, patterns and finishes to provide an ideal surface for any kitchen.

If you are creating a traditional or ‘farmhouse’ style kitchen, then a favourite is the rustic and warming charm of real wood. The heavy and uncompromising surface is wonderful to touch and says ‘practical’ better than anything.

For sheer quality a stone worktop is exceptional. Whether natural or crushed stone, you are assured of a striking and highly tactile finish. Traditional granite offers unique patterning and provenance shared with the earth itself, but recently modern crushed stone worktops have proved popular in this elite marketplace- being equally as durable and more flexible for colouring and customisation.

Whatever your choice, a great kitchen worktop should reward you over many years, and with Dream Doors you can always be assured of the highest quality.
