Fed up of your dated kitchen? Perhaps you have just moved into your brand-new home and want a kitchen that really shows your individual style? Choosing the right design almost always begins with your choice of surface. Start your kitchen renovation by taking a look at Duropal kitchen worktops as you and discover the design you’ve been looking for.
What is Duropal?
Duropal worktops are laminate surfaces that have been created to be both stylish and functional. Laminate is a preferred surface for many as the material is scratch, stain, and heat resistant. Another reason to love laminate is that you can choose designs that accurately mimic stone, wood and granite worktops. Laminate is a much cheaper alternative to the real thing while allowing you to enjoy the superb design of the look you like. Duropal surfaces are easy to clean and maintain, making them perfect for a busy family home. They are also great for those that don’t want to spend too much time cleaning!
What else do they offer?
As if being beautifully stylish and easy to clean wasn’t enough, classic and quadra Duropal worktops have many other fabulous qualities. These surfaces have a special seal that protects them against moisture and steam. On top of all this, the profiled edge minimises the drips and spillages that so often make their way into drawers and cupboards.
What about the designs?
Of course, besides the practicality of new worktops, you will undoubtedly be focused on the designs available for your new kitchen. The Duropal range provide fantastic choices for worktops, breakfast bars and kitchen islands. There are many traditional looks from which to choose. This includes the speckled granite effect of the Grey Ottawa Fine Grain worktop. Alternatively, consider the colourful speckles of the Mirabelle Corro Top Face surface.
Wood effect laminate worktops
If granite is not your thing, consider the sophisticated appearance of the Natural Oak Block Top Velvet Laminate. For a darker hue, take a look at the Natural Sangha Wenge. You may prefer the cool, clean appearance of the White Beech Parquet. Perhaps the elegant light brown shade of the Sonoma Oak Rustic worktop is more your style. Each of the wood effect Duropal worktops has been designed to accentuate the modern kitchen. The realistic appearance allows homeowners to kit out their kitchens in the latest looks without needing to go beyond their budget.
Marble effect worktops
The glossy sheen of a beautifully patterned marble effect worktop adds a breathtaking elegance to any kitchen. Marble is often associated with wealth and success which is perhaps why so many people wish to have in their kitchens. However, real marble can be extremely expensive. This can explain why it is immediately discounted as an option by those that can’t afford it. Marble effect laminate worktops are the ideal alternative as they cost a fraction of the price of the real thing. You will find a great selection of marble effect surfaces in the Duropal range that look sincredible. Consider the Roma Marble Gloss or the equally fabulous, Compact Carrara Marble. The finish on these surfaces is impressive and adds sophistication to kitchens large or small.
Sometimes homeowners prefer to let their accessories present their style and this is where neutral worktops can be best. All white surfaces are currently popular and are perfect for those that want to be right on trend. The Crystal White Enhanced Semi Matt is just gorgeous and allows you to decorate your kitchen in any colour you fancy. Alternatively, the Anthracite Xtreme Matt may catch your eye, and who could blame you? Its contemporary shade would enhance any modern kitchen.
Back to black
It is no secret that black worktops can hide a multitude of sins, which is why a lot of landlords and homeowners choose this shade. With Duropal, however, you won’t need to worry about hiding damage as the surfaces have been designed to last. These worktops resist scratches, burns, moisture and other kinds of wear and tear. The only reasons for considering black surfaces is that they are a returning trend for kitchens this year, and that they look amazing.
Black and a little something extra
The great thing about going back to black is that you don’t have to opt for a completely dark worktop. With this range you are free to select surfaces with embellishment. The Tivoli Crystal Stone worktop is very popular as is the Roma Marble Gloss worktop. Take a good look through the range to appreciate the versatility of black worktops. Enjoy embracing a trend that isn’t going to go anywhere anytime soon.
Duropal worktops for breakfast bars
Besides the work surfaces, a kitchen’s most used asset is the breakfast bar. The breakfast bar is a great place to pull up a chair for a chat with friends and for kids to perch at breakfast time. You can even enjoy some alone time and relax with a brew. Choose to team the surfaces with the rest of the worktops, or go rogue and use the breakfast bar to inject a completely different theme or colour into your kitchen design. This informal space is perfect for a catch up with family members and should be given the same consideration as the rest of your kitchen.
