Choosing the right worktop material is an essential step of every kitchen renovation. That specific material needs to meet a lot of requirements: it needs to be easy to maintain, it should handle standard kitchen temperatures and it needs to be long-lasting.
Among these main requirements, every person may require a few additional ones. But different materials have different characteristics and you should choose the one that meets your requirements.
1. Inform about the materials
At VictoriaMarble you will have the ability to choose from a number of worktop materials. In our range, we have quartz worktops, granite worktops, marble worktops and porcelain worktops. In this wide range of materials, there is an option for every budget and every buyer’s need. The best way to choose the material is to read about their pros and cons and vague them according to your requirements.
2. Visit the showroom
Once you have informed about the characteristics of the materials, you can visit our showroom in Ruislip. There, you can ask our employees any question that you have regarding the materials. But more importantly, you can see the materials in person and feel their texture. You can look for colours and get free samples with you.
3. Plan ahead
Once you have made a shortlist of the colours that you like, you can ask for a free quote. That way you will know from the start whether you can afford a certain colour or not. All you need to do is to provide us with the size you will need and the colours. You can get a free quote by filling an online form on the website or by a calling as well.
4. Think about the effect
Some materials have their unique appearance that is unrepeatable. Marble, for example, is recognizable by the unpredictable veining. Although many materials tend to imitate it in appearance, the real one is always recognizable by its texture and pattern unpredictability. Marble gives an elegant effect, while granite, for example, gives it a modern effect. Each material has its recognizable appearance which can be best seen when visiting the showroom.
5. Use two materials
If you just can’t decide between the two materials, you can choose both. For example, you can choose one for the kitchen island and the other for the rest of the cabinets. Just make sure that the material textures are not clashing and that the colours match.
