Your kitchen worktops say a lot about you. Many people prefer to go for worktops made from natural materials like granite or marble, however there is now an array of man-made materials, such as quartz, porcelain and ceramic, which can transform your kitchen worktop space. So what are the trends to look out for this year?
White Quartz Kitchen Worktops
Unlike marble or granite, quartz is available in an exciting range of colours and patterns. White quartz is proving to be particularly popular this year as there is no natural white stone available that competes with its clean, sophisticated look. Choose from our stunning selection of quartz worktops here.
Slim-line Kitchen Worktops
With the increasing desire for minimalist kitchens, smooth, durable and sleek worktops are more popular now than ever. This modern trend gives a kitchen the illusion of being more spacious and clean cut. Achieve this contemporary, minimalist look by having clever, hidden away storage methods and handle-less cupboards and drawers.
Growing in popularity this year, porcelain splash-back surfaces imitate the luxurious look of marble – without the price tag! Mosaics, intricate details and geometric patterns all add to your kitchen’s contemporary feel. A marble splash-back goes perfectly with a black and white kitchen, combining the two colours together in a subtle but striking way.
Glass Kitchen Worktops
Glass kitchen worktops, surfaces and accessories give the impression of a sophisticated, sleek elegance. Glass has an uplifting effect on your kitchen, giving the impression of a light and airy room. However, glass surfaces are not ideal for those with children, as sticky fingers will leave very noticeable marks!
Of course, our list of kitchen worktop trends wouldn’t be complete without this old favourite. Proving to be popular with new kitchen installations thanks to its durability, eye-catching beauty and uniqueness, granite lends a soothing, casual tone to your kitchen. It is also well-known for its ability to hide dirt and marks – handy if you have little ones!
