Do you prefer a light or dark surface?…

One of the most important factors to consider is whether you and your kitchen prefer dark or light colours. Depending on the natural light into your kitchen space, and the chosen colour on your units and cupboards will determine the choice of colour for your worktops.

Light worktops…

Light worktops will open up the space and provide a more brighter surrounding. The white undertones of the worktops will naturally reflect any light and look beautiful. Imagine having glistening pendants suspended above and the worktop shining from the light, it sounds so pretty!

Dark worktops…

Dark worktops add a rich tone to the kitchen space and can still be reflecting with the light. With a glossy finish on the cabinets the light will reflect perfectly. If you have a smaller kitchen and you worry about dark colours dominating the room, you can pair the dark worktops with light cabinetry such as creams, whites and greens to make the room come alive, with areas that are brightened up. Large kitchens with plenty of lighting and natural light will support a fully dark scheme across the room and bring it all together.

Are patterns and variations your thing? Or do you like just one bold colour?…

Once you have decided on whether you are going for a light or dark worktop, you need to think of if you want a pattern or variation in the worktop, or if you want just one bold colour. In the quartz range there are many different variations of the stone, with marble effects, veining effects and pure colours, which are shown below.

Will they flatter your floor?…

Your worktops and flooring need to flatter eachother so choosing them is very important. If careful thought hasn’t been implemented you could risk a kitchen design that clashes. The colours you choose need to complement eachother.

The best way to make sure the colours go together is to simply put up samples of each beside one another, then you can get a feel for how they work with eachother.

A good rule of thumb is to decide on similar colours for the floors and worktops, but obviously you can go more daring than this, if this is in your personality.
