Your kitchen will only be complete once you have decided upon a beautiful countertop to finish off the design. The aesthetic must work well with the rest of the kitchen, but the crucial consideration is functionality.
So how do you navigate the seemingly endless choices? Halo Interiors can help! Use our guide so you feel more comfortable choosing your worktop:
When considering a colour, you are likely to already have a preference but there are some things you should think about before making a solid choice. Lighter, brighter hues make spaces appear bigger. If you are working with a compact room, the best way to bounce light around is to use pale shades, from white to delicate creamy yellows. If pure white feels too clinical, many options include natural stone colourings without the huge price tags of granite and marble.
If your kitchen is going to be sleek and minimalistic in classic white, you could consider a dark worktop to contrast.
Don’t feel you should have to pick between these though, you can utilise different colours for different areas. The preparation area and sink may feel better in a dark, practical colour while your breakfast bar or kitchen island being in a contrasting white may provide the perfect way to segment these areas.
You can order your worktop slab in varying thicknesses that can be adapted to your design based on the application and the desired effect. Choose a depth between 4mm to 30mm.
Many manufactured brands are also offered in large-format slabs that open up avenues of design that had previously been unthinkable.
Silestone is made of more than 90 % pure quartz and available in over 80 colours and textures. It is stain, acid, and scratch-resistant.
Dekton worktops (a technological material composed of porcelain, glass, and quartz) boast the same stain and scratch-resistant qualities as Silestone whilst also being heat and UV resistant. This means you don’t have to worry about accidentally putting that hot pan down on the counter!
Sensa by Cosentino is the natural granite surface that is treated so, unlike traditional granite, it becomes stain-resistant, needs lower maintenance but still has all the natural beauty that makes your worktop unique.
