Kitchen Worktops: Which Type Of Worktop To Choose

Studies have shown that the kitchen is the most used room in the home.  It is where meals and snacks are prepared, and where the family gathers for conversations and late night confidences, which is why most people when they buy a home put a lot of emphasis on having a functional kitchen. These perspective home buyers first look at the roominess of the kitchen then at the kitchen worktops when deciding to buy.  In fact, the type of kitchen worktop you have may well be the deciding factor as to whether a buyer is going to buy your home or the one next door, and it certainly is going to effect how much time you are actually going to want to spend in your own kitchen.  Having a quartz or granite worktop can make a big difference in the value, looks, and comfort of your kitchen.


Let’s face it, your kitchen needs to be a warm and inviting place for family and friends to gather and share good times and bad. Having a granite or quartz kitchen worktop increases the warmth and the beauty of you kitchen a great deal.   With very little maintenance these types of kitchen worktops can look good year, after year.  You don’t have to worry about granite or quartz fading after a few years and looking old, nor do you have to worry that these type of counter tops are going to get nicks, or wear down so that they harbor germs that can make you and your family sick.  They simply go on looking great and being functional year after year.


They also increase the value of your home if you should ever decide to sell.  All too often people selling their homes end up pouring hundreds if not thousands of dollars in replacing old worktops when they decide to sell their home and this is money they almost never make back when the home sells.  However, people who have all ready installed granite or quartz worktops in their own kitchen don’t have to go to any added expensive to sell their kitchen and in fact even in a down economy those homes with these types of counter tops often sell for more than identical homes with laminated or even wood counter tops.


However, in the end it is your own family that matters and your family is much more likely to want to gather around that kitchen table to eat dinner or have a late night conversation if your kitchen is warm and inviting and granite and quartz kitchen worktops do make your kitchen far more warm and inviting than any other type of worktop on the market today.
