Once entirely dedicated to the preparation of food, today’s kitchens are increasingly becoming the ‘nerve-centre’ of social gatherings. Whether you invite guests for a meal, celebrate a special occasion or treat a group of friends to a wine-tasting session showing off the latest addition to your collection, chances are that much of the day’s – or evening’s – activity will take place in the kitchen.
Of course, this means that you will want your kitchen to be as attractive and exquisite looking as your meal or wine. Purchasing granite or quartz worktops will help you to achieve a look that will provoke admiration, even envy in all who enter your domain.
Should you and your guests be wine lovers for instance, you may consider creating a kitchen island incorporating proper wine storage units that adequately cater for the five critical elements of wine storage, namely the angle of bottle storage; humidity, light/temperature requirements and ventilation.
In your kitchen island, you may also choose to add easily accessible, secure storage for your crystal wine glasses and goblets. A particularly stylish and handy solution to this problem comes in the shape of hanging slots within either open or glass-fronted cabinets.
Topping the island with Diresco worktops to match your overall kitchen design will provide you with an elegant space to serve a meal, nibbles or the traditional selection of cheese and biscuits that compliment your wine.
These worktops are available in a multitude of stylish colours and textures, making it easy to find the perfect match for your personal colour scheme and style. These can be cut into any shape you choose to fit both your island and other areas within your dream kitchen.
Similar to other alternatives like Caesarstone worktops or Compac worktops for example, they are of consistently high, hard-wearing quality, ensuring that even after many parties, they will look just as new. The elegance and timeless beauty of your worktops, combined with your stylish wine-lover’s island will raise your prestige among friends, family and acquaintances, and soon you will become chief party host.
