Solid Wood

Solid Wood has remained a firm favourite worktop material for kitchen buyers and has been for decades. This is because solid wood is warm, inviting and has a unique charm and character to it which is very appealing. Solid wood has the ability to remain elegant and stylish in any era, it is a timeless beauty which can easily be modified to suit your personal tastes and requirements. Solid wooden worktops can be customised to match your current kitchen styles, they can be painted, carved and finished exactly how you like them. The main benefit of solid wooden worktops is that they are extremely easy to clean, maintain, sturdy and durable, lasting you for many years of use.


Granite is a natural stone and this in itself is highly appealing for many people. The natural components and beautiful patterns give your kitchen a distinctive and timeless atmosphere. You can choose natural colours or you have the option to choose different coloured granite worktops, this is highly practical as you can still achieve the natural look whilst adding a personalised touch to your worktops. Granite is extremely strong and durable and able to withstand many years of heavy use, however, it is one of the most expensive worktop materials to buy and can be quite porous to liquids. This means that it can absorb liquids and may stain easily which can make it harder to clean and maintain.

Quartz (Silestone)

Quartz is a man-made material made from resins combined with natural quartz stone. Also known by its popular brand name Silestone, quartz worktops are designed to be waterproof, stain-proof and exceptionally hard wearing. Quartz is very similar in appearance to granite but they are not the same, quartz is non-porous and stronger than granite, making it easy to clean and maintain. The hard resin surface ensures that your worktop is protected against scratches, stains, leaks and chips so they can endure years of heavy use and still look as good as new. Quartz worktops are also very hygienic as they are easy to clean and will not absorb anything. Like granite, quartz can be quite expensive but they are ideal for those wanting a long-term option.
