5 ways to make your granite and quartz kitchen worktops stand out

5 ways to make your granite and quartz kitchen worktops stand out

A quartz or granite worktop makes a show-stopping addition to your home. But, as part of your kitchen design, there are a number of additional features you can include to enhance the final appearance of your worktops and make them really stand out!

Here are just some of the extras you might want to include to add wow-factor (and practicality) to your kitchen design.

1. Drainer grooves

Drainer grooves make a stunning addition to a stone worktop. Just as important, they stop water creeping along the counter top, and prevent everything (including your floor) from getting wet. Because quartz is non-porous, it’s a fantastic material for drainer grooves.

2. Kitchen islands

When it comes to hangout spots, nothing beats a kitchen island. From grand workstations with additional appliances to petite counters that can be used for much-needed storage, the multifunctional nature of islands means they never go out of style or demand.

3. Breakfast bar

Breakfast bars are a great social focus in the kitchen and are perfect for creating family orientated spaces. It’s no wonder, therefore, that more and more of our customers want one!

4. Curved corners

Curved units are becoming increasingly popular in today’s kitchen design. Not only do they look great, but they also provide a softer edge and safe finish, especially where young children concerned.

5. Undermount sinks

Undermount sinks give a distinctive, stylish look, making it perfect for the modern-day kitchen.
