Buyer’s Guide

Before you invest in kitchen countertops, there are some things you may want to consider. Buying countertops can be a daunting task, but it does not have to be.

There are some things you may want to consider before buying some countertops. Let’s look at some things you may need to consider. 

Size

The size of your kitchen, as well as the size of the countertop slabs you buy is important. If you have a huge kitchen, you will probably want to consider the price of the countertop slabs that you are buying.

There is no point spending hundreds on a small patch of your counter. Instead, measure up all the surface area that you need to cover, and think about how much you may need to spend.

Typically, wood tends to be more expensive than materials such as vinyl, but things like quartz and stone are double the price.

Quartz and marble tiled countertops are also hard to buy online, so this might be something you will have to look at in person.

Additionally, if the size of the countertop is small, you may end up paying a lot of money to cover your entire kitchen. These are things that you should consider regarding your budget and kitchen size, but they are easy to get round. 

Kitchen Style

If you are looking for a particular style for your kitchen, you may need to choose the countertops last, instead of first. White cabinets are easy, and you can match basically anything with them.

However, if you are going for a particular look in your kitchen, you will need to think more about the style of countertop.

For example, if you have white cabinets, and a green and yellow themed kitchen, vinyl marble will probably not be the right choice. Consider your artistic vision for your kitchen before you jump into investing in new countertops. 

Wood Vs Other Materials

Wood is typically your best option when buying countertops. Wood is amazing looking, and it goes really well with white furnishings.

Wood is cheap in comparison to hard surfaces such as quartz and marble, and it is extremely durable. However, it is more expensive than vinyl or laminate, and you will have to treat it with oils.

Wood is heatproof, stain proof, water-resistant, and tear resistant, and it often bends to weight that is on top of it.

Materials such as vinyl and laminate may be more susceptible to scratches and tearing, so wood may be a better option for you. 

Color 

Most countertops are wooden or neutral colors. Consider if this will go with the white cabinets and color style of your kitchen.

If you want a particular theme or fun color for your kitchen, you may want to consider countertop options that pop more. 

Worktop Accessories

The accessories to compliment your countertops is also something to consider. For certain materials, you will need to replenish them.

Additionally, when placing certain kinds of countertops, you will need sealants, installation kits, barriers, and oil to fit them. If you are looking for something easy, then wood may not be the one for you, even if it does look the best. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Best Thickness For A Kitchen Worktop? 

It completely depends on your choice, but a worktop of around 2-3 cm thick is perfect. Anything above this is even better. This will ensure that it is durable and strong when you put things on top of it. 

What Countertops Do People Usually Have With White Cabinets?

Typically, people usually have wooden, white, or tiled countertops with white cabinets. As we know, white kitchen cabinets are versatile, and they go with almost anything, hence why people are so creative with them. 

What Is The Best Kind Of Wood Worktop? 

Wood is known for being incredibly sturdy and hard, with heat proof and scratch proof properties. However, what wood is the strongest?

Oak, cherry, and walnut wood are among the toughest and most durable kids of wood.

Oak is hard wearing, with its natural grain, whereas cherry and walnut have a unique grain with beautiful color variations, as well as a sturdy and damage proof nature.
