“The worktop forms the foundation of a kitchen, setting the tone and style for the design. Designing around your surfaces will make it easier to choose your decor and will allow you to make a visual statement whilst choosing a material that coordinates with your lifestyle. Visually beautiful and utterly practical, Caesarstone worktops allow you to achieve an aesthetic you will love without compromising quality or durability. Whether you’re after a bold, dramatic style in a darker hue or looking to create a light, bright atmosphere with a softer, marble-inspired design, our quartz and porcelain surface offerings range from light to dark; shiny, smooth to tangibly textured; natural to urban; and plain to heavily veined and intricately designed. With a range that’s hand-picked by the Tom Howley design experts to suit their cabinet colourways, there is sure to be something at Caesarstone that perfectly complements your dream kitchen design.”

Alternatively, a dark worktop provides an ideal foundation to showcase contrasting features in a kitchen, such as gold hardware, bar stools upholstered in pastel velvets, and ivory wood panelling. Especially useful for bustling family life when it’s difficult to stay on top of the never-ending chaos, darker surfaces reduce the visibility of scattered crumbs and accidental spills.

Ensure Effortless Maintenance With Easy to Clean Properties

Maintenance is also one of the most important elements to consider when choosing the worktop material for your kitchen. And for those of us who like a spotless space, being able to easily wipe away spillages is a priority. Caesarstone surfaces are durable and non-porous, so cleaning up oil, juice, or coffee is as simple as one swipe. The non-porousness also inhibits the growth of bacteria, mould, or mildew, remaining safe and sanitary for ultimate cleanliness. To keep the stunning shine of a worktop intact, it’s advised to use a mild soap and warm water, with no harsh chemicals or paint strippers.

Bespoke kitchens are like having a tailor-made suit, made to measure for your own unique space. Our expert designers will always advise you on the best colourways for your style, and which surfaces we would recommend for your lifestyle and chosen kitchen cabinet colour.
