The first thing that you need to consider is the available space in your kitchen; the length of the worktop will depend on the space you have. Apart from that it will also decide the thickness of the worktop. If your kitchen is small, you will need a smaller worktop length and vice versa. Also, for a smaller kitchen, a sleeker 30mm kitchen worktop will give the feel of having more space. Start by measuring from corner to corner in your kitchen. This will give you a fair idea of how much space is available in the kitchen for worktops. You need a functional worktop but you also need space to move freely in your kitchen. If you are not sure how much length you need, contact a professional interior designer.
One of the most important factors that affect your worktop decision is your budget. Kitchen worktops come in every price range. The choice of the worktop will depend on how much money you have to shell out; you do not want the renovation to break your budget. Therefore, make sure that you have a proper renovation budget. Keep a list of things you need for the kitchen renovation and how much money you can spend on each of them.
Just as there are several choices of thickness and length, there are as many choices of worktop material. Wood, granite, marble, stainless steel and laminate are some of the most popular kitchen worktop materials. The choice of material depends upon your budget and your needs. Each of these materials has its own pros and cons. For instant, a granite worktop is durable, but it is also expensive. So if durability is not what you are looking for, spending so much money on a granite worktop will not make sense.
