How to choose the perfect worktop

Worktops: Materials & Practicalities

A worktop can have many functions – most commonly found within the kitchen but not limited to it, sometimes used as a vanity in a bathroom. When planning a design, it’s likely you’ll have an idea of the look and feel you want to create – but you may not be aware of the options available to you when it comes to materials and colour.

Quartz worktops

One of the most versatile and nuanced of all worktop materials, quartz has been rapidly growing in popularity over the past few years to become a preferred choice to more traditional materials like marble and granite. As it has only fairly recently started to gain demand, many people have questions about its origins, manufacturing process and performance capabilities.

Granite worktops

Granite is another natural stone that is often one of the main materials considered for a kitchen. Intricate veining and unique patterns feel dynamic and sophisticated, with a range of colours that can perfectly pair with both neutral and bold designs. But granite isn’t without its drawbacks, prone to stains, chips and cracks as well as a hefty price point.

Again, Caesarstone has carefully developed a range of quartz worktops that capture the beauty of granite alongside enhanced strength and durability. Find out more about granite worktops and the quartz alternatives available.

Stone worktops

Stone worktops can cover a broad range of themes, styles and aesthetics – from the innate grandeur of marble or the timeless sophistication of granite. The sheer diversity makes them an obvious choice for your surface solution, but there are downfalls that can raise some concerns.

An engineered stone like quartz can combat these pitfalls, combining dynamic functionality with stunning designs. Consider the pros and cons of stone worktops as well as our engineered quartz surfaces.
