Worktops will depend on many variables, size to work with, whether you are happy to maintain a solid timber worktop or you want a worktop with minimal maintenance. A favourite of ours that are fast becoming a popular choice are the stone variations such as quartz or granite. However much of it is personal choice and dependant on what cabinet style you choose.

Much depends on style required, taste and perhaps most importantly budget. However cheap worktops are a false economy as the service life can be poor. With most kitchens now featuring integrated sinks, hobs etc its not a job you want to repeat. In our view Composite worktops such as ‘Corian’ or similar brands offer the best in terms of durability and looks, and damage can be repaired. Wood looks fantastic but be prepared for ongoing oiling and cleaning to keep them looking good.

All depends on the size of the kitchen and your budget. A decent laminate worktop with properly sealed joints should last years, as long as it’s looked after. Real wood worktops can be sanded and dents lifted over a period of time if they become worn. They will need oiling regularly. Another option would be trespa, 12mm thick compact laminate. Fully waterproof and scratch resistant also heat resistant. Or fake stone, slab tech, earthstone etc Hope this helps

It depends on the size of the household but if you are prepared to put the work in I would go for solid wood, you can sand it if you scratch it, as long as you look after it oil it at regular intervals, and wipe away any spills straight away it will last for years. If that doesn’t go with the look that you are trying to create have a look at a slab tech/composite style top, there’s a range of different colours and styles. Hope this is of help.
