Remodelling a house is exciting. The wide range of possibilities not only means that you can have anything you want to reflect your taste and style, but also that you can be spoiled for choice and find it difficult to pick the one thing you really want – wood, veneer, light, dark, or a combination of colours? Silestone worktops, or something else?
Much of it depends on the style of your house and choosing a basic colour scheme should be relatively simple. Compac worktops are rather popular these days, thanks to having a vibrant range of colours and being scratch, stain and heat resistant.
Diresco worktops are another modern option, and offer an affordable quartz worktop. The colour tones are more neutral than the ones in compac, which can be reassuring in that should you change the colour scheme of your kitchen later on, your worktops will still look great.
Granite has been consistently popular for many years. Each piece is completely unique, as no two pieces of granite are alike – so you will never worry about having the same kitchen as someone else. Granite is one of the hardest known materials, and is scratch resistant.
Of the 45 available colours, the rust or brown selection would look perfect in a Mediterranean style or a kitchen with prominent wood features, while the gloss black is ideal in a contemporary kitchen, especially offset by white or chrome hardware. Another perk of granite in a kitchen situation is that it is highly heat resistant, to the point that hot pans can be placed directly on to it for a short period, and it is easy to clean. Granite also ages well – the majority of those with a polished face will retain that polish for many years, so all the owner has to do is use hot soapy water to remove any dirt.
If granite sounds like the option for you, then the Internet can save the day once again as the product can be ordered online. You can refurbish your kitchen without getting dressed, and that stunning new look is just a mouse click away.
