4. Mix and match colour and materials
If you are very indecisive, you can choose two materials for your kitchen worktops. For example, you can choose marble for the kitchen island and granite for the other cabinets. Marble will make a statement when used on the kitchen island, while granite will give you that necessary sturdiness and resistance necessary for food preparation.
5. Consider the budget
Stones will make a smart investment, although they are more expensive than some other materials such as wood or laminate, you will not need a replacement for a lifetime. Natural and manufactured stones are a smart investment because they can last the longest. If you are looking for a more budget-friendly option among stones, consider quartz, as it tends to be the most affordable one.
6. Consider the effect
Consider the effect you want to achieve with your kitchen. Choose similarly toned worktops for a well-balanced composition, but for more dramatic effect, choose a contrasting colour for your cabinets.
7. Take your time
Don’t rush your decision and take as much time as you need to make sure that you have made the right decision. Investing in kitchen worktops is a bigger investment and you shouldn’t rush it.
