You may be thinking of choosing an inexpensive laminate type of kitchen worktop because your budget happens to be low, but does this also include all the extra installation costs? that are involved.

Best worktops suited for your kitchen layout
You could have a high-end budget available to you, but the actual contours and shape of your kitchen might just go against you.

Worktops with colours that are contrasting and match the colours of your kitchen cabinets can be very pleasing indeed.
Our Professional Process
After a decision has been made on design, material and colour then our technicians will come to your premises to make a precise template of the surface this will then be taken back to our fabrication unit where the surface will be cut to the template using our specialised machinery, during this process we will cut to size, cut the drainer grooves, tap holes and any other processes that are required, this is all carried out by our expert technicians. Within around 7-10 days our technicians will return to your property to install your newly made surface. Although these surfaces are stunning to look at, they are extremely tough and durable and can easily last a lifetime.
Although there are differences with the material the overall process is the same whether you are having Corian, Granite Quartz or similar material, saying that, different skills are used in the fabrication process, for example you may decide to have coved upstands so the upstands curve seamlessly from worktop to wall or you may decide to have granite for its unique properties, but this will be sealed before it leaves the factory as granite is porous, you may decide you want a thinner profile and so decide to go for 20mm quartz. There could be any number of reasons for your design choice but the overall process for you, the customer will be the same.
Granite is a virtually indestructible material that stands up well to wear and tear in both the kitchen, or any other room. It resists scratches from knives while still providing an elegant look for your counters. And unlike Formica countertops which are often too soft to stand up to heat like granite does, this stone can withstand hot pans without discolouring the kitchen counter surfaces.
Granite is the perfect material for high-end kitchen worktops and counters. Formed from compressed molten rock, granite resists heat better than synthetic materials like laminate or tile because it doesn't blister - meaning your counters won’t develop those unsightly cracks that come with prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures such as baking pans on a hot stovetop. It's also unlikely to scratch due its hardness; this makes it an excellent choice if you have children who are prone to banging their dishes around in the kitchen while cooking up dinner (or any other time! We all know how hungry kids get!). Granite has been used since ancient times not only for buildings but sculptures too, so we're sure they knew something about durability back then, as everything was built to last!
Our quality Quartz worktops are made up of 93% quartz, 3% resin and 4%. other elements. The naturally mined silicon dioxide as a result makes it one of the toughest kitchen worktop materials in existence in todays market. We are very proud of our range of quartz kitchen worktops, that are responsibly sourced, so you can rest-assure that you are purchasing from a sustainable and genuine supplier.
You don't have to worry about cooking oils and grease ruining your granite countertops anymore, because quartz is the answer. Quartz has been engineered especially for kitchens so that it's impervious to these hazardous problems with other materials like hair spray or toiletries.
Granite and quartz engineered stone are both popular choices for counters, with pros and cons for each. Granite is a natural material that can vary in colour from slab to slab which makes it difficult to match sections of one countertop together as there may be some variation between the pieces. On the other hand, granite has many benefits like being hard enough not to scratch easily or absorb heat so cutting on top of it will never dull your knives or scorch food while cooking. Engineered stone offers all these same great qualities but without any unpredictability since they're man-made materials which means you know just what you'll get when ordering an engineered quartz kitchen island or worktop.
Engineered stone, or quartz for short is a man-made material that gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to durability and low maintenance. Quartz has always been known as one of the hardest minerals on earth next to diamond. Now we have engineered synthetic quartz stones which can last over 100 years without any additional polishing needed. And unlike natural materials like marble and granite there are no divots in your surface from spills while it's easy enough just wipe away with soap water after use, instead of needing harsh chemicals every week even if you don't spill anything at all. Quartz stone particles mixed with resin produce a fantastic kitchen worktops, ideal for work surfaces in the home.
The kitchen is the heart of every home. It is one of the most used rooms in your house, and it is also where food preparation happens. So why not make your kitchen as beautiful as possible with a Dekton countertop? Here are all the important questions you need to know about Dekton countertops before you decide on which material for your new worktop:
1) What is a Dekton worktop?
2) How do we measure your dekton worktop?
3) Why choose a dekton for your kitchen worktop?
4) Is dekton a good material for a kitchen worktop?
5) Does Dekton chip easily?
What is a Dekton worktop?
Dekton material, which was originally developed as an alternative to granite and marble by DuPont. It has quickly become one of the most popular choices for kitchen countertops because it's lightweight but durable enough to take everyday use without scratching or chipping. This means you won't have to worry about your new counters getting scratched up if anything accidentally falls on them!
Dekton is a material that looks like marble but it's not made of stone. It has all the properties you would want in an ideal kitchen countertop, including being thermally resistant and scratch-resistant. Dekton also doesn't chip or crack easily so your new worktops will last for many years to come.
The surface layer of Dekton is made from acrylic resin with an additional polyester coating that makes it resistant against acids, oils and fats! This means you should be able to enjoy your beautiful worktop without worrying about spills or other accidents. We recommend cleaning off any potential spillages right away so they don't form into bigger problems later on. If you do experience damage during use, however, please contact us straight away - we may be able to repair them in most circumstances.
How do we measure dekton worktops?
Dekton cutting service is a popular choice among designers and architects, as it means you can have your kitchen worktop custom-made for the size of your space. This also reduces waste.
The thickness of Dekton varies depending on what type of cut-out pattern you select – there are three basic cuts: Bullnose, beveled edge and rectangular edge; each with different measurements. The measurements will range from ½” - ¾”.
How is Dekton cut into shape?
Dekton is made by fusing together the individual pieces of material. This can be done using a variety of techniques including pressing, dipping and pouring molten glass onto spinning steel rods to create slabs that are then combined with other materials like resin to give it either a glossy or matte finish. The end result is an incredibly durable work surface which offers plenty of flexibility in design options so you get the perfect look for your kitchen.
The process takes between four and six hours before the final product has been shaped and cooled sufficiently to handle any further processing such as drilling holes or adding colour through pigmenting agents. It's not just what you do from here on out that matters though - once finished, a final lacquer coat is applied to the surface of your worktop which seals it and protects against damage so you can spend more time cooking up delicious food rather than polishing away scratches!
