Avanti’s Guide to Choosing the Perfect Worktop for your Fitted Kitchen

26th April 2024

At Avanti, we understand that the kitchen worktop is a crucial design element that sets the tone for the entire space. As a leading provider of high-quality kitchen solutions in the West Midlands, we’re here to help you navigate the various options available to you when it comes to choosing worktop materials and to help find the perfect fit for your home.

When it comes to kitchen renovations, few design elements carry as much weight as the worktop. This essential surface not only needs to look great, but it should also withstand the daily rigors of food preparation, cleaning, and general use. With so many worktop materials available, it can be challenging to determine which option is best.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the top kitchen worktop materials and their unique benefits:

Granite worktops

Granite Worktops

Granite has long been a popular choice for kitchen worktops due to its exceptional durability and timeless beauty. This natural stone is incredibly resistant to scratches, heat, and stains, making it a practical option for busy kitchens. Avanti’s selection of granite worktops comes in a wide array of colours and patterns, allowing you to find the perfect aesthetic match for your cabinetry and overall kitchen design.

Laminate Worktops

Laminate worktops are a versatile and cost-effective option that should not be overlooked. These engineered surfaces offer a wide range of benefits that make them a smart choice for many homes. Laminate worktops are extremely durable and resistant to scratches, stains, and heat, ensuring they can withstand the rigours of daily kitchen use. They are also incredibly easy to clean, requiring only a simple wipe-down to maintain their pristine appearance. Aesthetically, laminate worktops can be designed to mimic the look of more expensive materials like granite or marble, allowing you to achieve a high-end look on a budget. Furthermore, laminate is a lightweight and low-maintenance option, making installation straightforward.

Solid wood worktops

Solid Wood Worktops

There are many benefits to opting for solid wood worktops in your fitted kitchen design. They look great in classic style kitchens but are also perfect in an ultra-modern design due to their timeless appearance and numerous finishes. They are hygienic, eco-friendly and can easily be repaired if required. Due to the grain in the wood, no tow pieces are exactly the same ensuring that your kitchen worktops are truly unique to you.

At Avanti we only use the wood of the finest quality when it comes to creating your countertop. This ensures that it can withstand the true test of time and will look and function just as it should for years to come.

When selecting the ideal kitchen worktop material, it’s important to carefully weigh factors like durability, maintenance, cost, and aesthetics. By understanding the unique properties of each option, homeowners can make an informed decision that will serve their kitchen needs for years to come.
