The kitchen is becoming today more like a living area and is often at the heart of your house. Whether you opt for a very modern, functional, classic or designer style, there is a vast choice. Kitchen cupboards come in great variety of colours and can be accessorised with so many different styles of handles with numerous technical innovations for the larder, drawers, cabinets and glass doors.
However, there is one element of the kitchen who should deserve more attention: the one you will see most on top of cupboards, the one you will use most preparing food, and the one you will have more contact with as you will probably clean it on a daily basis. The worktop is the part of the kitchen which should justify you spending a bigger budget, however this is not often the case as many people like to spend a large proportion of their budget on appliances instead.
Why should you buy cupboards which are guaranteed for 5 years if you have a cheap worktop? Don’t forget that the worktop will suffer all kinds of assault, from heat, cooking oil and various spillages. A good worktop should be heat and stain resistant, especially if you like your curries as spices such as turmeric are notorious for staining. It should also be hard wearing and difficult to chip or crack.
Therefore you should think more carefully about the choice of worktops and when you purchase a good quality worktop you should always seek professional help to install it. A quality tradesperson will also be able to help advise you on the most suitable type of worktop for your needs. It is important that a new worktop is correctly fitted and sealed to the wall or wall tiles. If it is not water and other liquids will seep through any gaps and cause issues for your cupboards and draws below.
