Are you a little bit tired of your kitchen? Do you find it’s ‘fine’ and does the job, but it’s a little bit dull? Kitchen trends have moved quickly over the past few years. Until fairly recently, perhaps the last five years, the trend for kitchens had been the same for decades: a wood kitchen with faux granite worktops (or real granite, for those who had the budget).
But things have changed in kitchen design, and many people are finding themselves with a kitchen that has dated. Perhaps you’ve moved home and inherited one, but it’s hard to justify the cost of a new kitchen purely for cosmetic reasons. If you feel you’d like to update your kitchen but don’t want to go to the hassle and expense of having a new kitchen put in, don’t worry, you still have options! Simply repainting your cupboards and putting in some laminate worktops will give your kitchen a whole new lease of life.
Advantages of Laminate Worktops
There are four key advantages to replacing your worktops with a good quality laminate. Read a buyers guide by HomeBase here to help you make a decision.
- The first is a question of affordability. Laminate worktops represent excellent value for money, compared with the other options available, and it means that you can give your kitchen a great makeover for comparatively little money.
- Second is the choice of finishes. Whatever you would like, there will be a laminate worktop to match! Wood effect, marble effect, granite effect, high gloss, or something with sparkle – laminate worktops come in just about every style and finish that you can think of, and then there is the huge range of colours available too. Whether you want bold and modern, or neutral and natural, HC Supplies are here to help.
- The third advantage is that they are heat resistant up to 135 degrees. We all know someone who accidentally put a hot pan down and ruined their expensive wooden worktop – with laminate you simply can’t do that!
- Finally, laminate worktops are easy to look after. There is no need to oil them or polish them, they are totally water resistant and all they need is a quick wipe over – perfect for busy modern life!
