Beautiful and Functional Kitchen Worktops

Whether you are drawn to skinny 15mm quartz kitchen worktops, thick 120mm Corian®, or even Industrial steel or the new ulta modern dekton , the kitchen worktop is possibly the most important feature to 'get right' within your kitchen. In conjunction with everyday use, hardworking kitchen worktops will regularly come into contact with potentially damaging substances. This includes water, fats, juices, oils, knives, hot pots and pans, as well as other small kitchen appliances and utensils. With this in mind, and aside from aesthetic requirement, when choosing your kitchen worktop you must take into account the purpose it is required to serve. In most cases this is multipurpose, and extends beyond food preparation and cooking. Instead kitchen worktops are also frequently used for dining, socialising, helping with homework etc. To successfully accommodate such a variety of uses, consideration must be given to the worktop’s size, strength, durability and care requirements.

Kitchen Worktop Choices

Contemporary Kitchens supply kitchen worktops in a variety of sizes and manufactured from a variety of materials such as quartz, solid wood, natural or synthetic veneers, man-made boards, stone, glass and steel. The incorporation of curves or inset crackled glass can ensure an eye-catching feature worktop; alternatively a sliding kitchen worktop will provide extra space when you need it, but retract back into place when you don’t. Our expert designers are able to cater for every worktop taste, budget and application. We will also take the time to understand all of your needs to ensure we recommend the worktop option that’s right for you, and right for your home.

Kitchen Worktops and Upstands

For an uninterrupted look or to continue a theme, you might wish to continue your choice of worktop material into an upstand. Upstands line the worktop where it meets the wall, and are usually only 100mm high. As well as upstands it is also possible (dependent on your choice of material) to continue your worktop choice as a kitchen splashback panel.
