Your kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s a room that’s not just for cooking, but also for socialising, eating, and sometimes even working. Since it’s such a well-used space, it’s worth spending a little effort to make it inviting and special.

One way to elevate your kitchen is by giving some love to your worktops. Whether you choose marble worktops, quartz or granite countertops, stone worktops are a fantastic way to upgrade your kitchen. But there’s more you can do to make them truly stand out and create a place you love spending time in. Here are 7 ideas to get you started:

  1. Kitchen Islands: A kitchen island is a classic for a reason. It provides extra counter space for food prep and appliances, additional storage, and a social hub for cooking with others. You can even get a movable island for ultimate flexibility. We offer many types of kitchen islands, whether you want them to match your quartz worktops or any other natural stone.

2. Undermounted sinks: Take your worktops to the next level with under-mounted sinks. These sinks sit below the countertop for a sleek, modern look. They’re also easier to clean thanks to the seamless joint between the sink and countertop. Just remember, undermount sink installation requires professional help.

3. Curved corners: Swap out the traditional sharp corners for softer, curved edges on your countertops. This not only offers a unique aesthetic but also improves safety for children and reduces the risk of damage from bumps and bangs.

4. Breakfast Bars: Breakfast bars are a fantastic way to add functionality and style to your kitchen. They provide a casual dining area for quick meals, snacks on the go, or even a coffee break. Plus, their narrow design saves space compared to a regular table, and stools can be tucked underneath when not in use.

5. Drainer Grooves: Drainer grooves are functional and stylish. These grooves are cut into the worktop next to the sink, allowing water to drain directly back into the sink instead of pooling on the surface or running off the edge.

6. Statement Backsplash: Don’t neglect the backsplash! A well-chosen backsplash complements your worktops and adds a decorative touch. Consider using bold colours, unique patterns, or textured tiles to create a focal point in your kitchen.

7. Accessorise Wisely: While keeping your worktops clutter-free is important, carefully chosen accessories can add personality and functionality. Think about stylish bowls for fruit, a beautiful knife block, or a sleek canister set.

By incorporating some of these ideas, you can transform your kitchen worktops from simply functional surfaces into a beautiful and inviting space that reflects your style and makes cooking and spending time in the kitchen a pleasure.
