The kitchen is the centre of any home. People spend a lot of time in their kitchens, preparing healthy and tasty meals for their family members. Therefore a kitchen needs to not only be functional, it should also be comfortable and stylish. A kitchen worktop can add to the comfort, style and convenience of any kitchen.
However, before selecting a kitchen worktop you will have to keep a few things in mind. Since we have to think about functionality as much as style, it becomes important to understand the different materials and their pros and cons - this will help you in making the right decision. Here are few things that will help you when buying the perfect kitchen worktop for you.

First and foremost, the thing to consider is the measurement of the worktop. Whether you are looking for 3-metre kitchen worktops or less, you have to make sure that they look and feel right in your kitchen. If you have an existing worktop and you just want to replace it, then it is far easier for you to take the measurement. Just take the measurement from edge to edge and you can buy the new worktop accordingly. However, if you are going to buy the worktop anew, you need to be a bit careful. Using 3-metre worktops in a 1-metre space will disturb the overall functionality of your kitchen. Take a tape and measure the whole area of your kitchen that is available for a new worktop and decide the worktop’s measurement accordingly. If you are not sure how to do it call a professional.
Once you have decided whether you need 3-metre kitchen worktops, or more or less than that, it is time to select the material you want. Now there are several materials that worktops are available in, from the low-priced range to the expensive ones; therefore it is important to work on your budget first. Some of the expensive worktops are granite, quartz, glass and marble. These worktops look quite elegant and are durable. However, there are cheap options like laminate that is equally as good and functional. The best way is to do a bit of homework about the different advantages and disadvantages that each worktop material offers, and subsequently buy the one that fits your needs and budgets.
Colour & Shade
The tone and colour of the 3-metre worktops can change the entire feel and look of your kitchen. If you are choosing a wooden worktop, do you want the tone to be lighter or darker? If you are choosing granite, would you prefer subtle and light tones or more sombre shades? When you are choosing a laminate worktop, the choice becomes all the more difficult. Not only do you have to think about the colour and tone, you have to also think about patterns and designs. If you are not able to decide, browse a few kitchen models online or take the help of an interior designer.
