When designing your new kitchen HB Kitchens is keen to help our customers make the right decisions about their choices. For any kitchen design, from a Traditional style to Modern or Contemporary, the details matter and those finishing touches such as taps, tiles and flooring will make all the difference in achieving the kitchen of your dreams.

An important detail…

A hugely important detail is choosing the right Worktop as this element not only impacts roughly 20% of the overall cost, your Worktop needs to be durable, attractive and must coordinate with the colour of your cupboard doors.

We have found the preference for Granite (a natural product) has been taken over by Quartz. Oozing style and quality, Quartz is an extremely durable man-made material that is easy to maintain and offers a wide range of colour options.

Corian is another popular choice as it is an attractive and resilient man-made material that is available in a wide range of colours. Installed with no visible joints, it is perfect for those seeking a minimalist finish.

Laminate is a more practical and cost-effective choice, again available in a wide variety of colours, styles and finishes. Hardworking and durable, laminate is a low maintenance option that won’t break the bank.

For those who are attracted to the natural beauty of Wooden Worktops, they look fantastic with almost all kitchen styles and colours. A great investment, solid Wood creates a warm and homely feel and is tactile and hygienic due to its antibacterial properties. Although strong and durable, Wooden Worktops do require some maintenance such as oiling a few times a year while scratches or imperfections can be removed by sanding and since no two pieces of wood are the same, each wooden worktop will be unique to your kitchen. A great look that offers great impact can be achieved by combining Wooden Worktops with Quartz… The possibilities are truly endless!

Whatever look you envisage for your new kitchen we have the experience to help you make those difficult choices.
