Choosing the Right Work Surface

Work surfaces are crucial in every kitchen, and whether you have long runs or short spells of surfaces, you need to make sure they’re suited to your requirements.

Solid Oak Work Surfaces

This type of work surface may not be the cheapest but it’s certainly one of the most popular, especially in traditional kitchens. These do pick up scuffs and scratches over time though, but if they’re specially coated they’ll look stunning for longer periods.


Granite work surfaces are on the cheaper side and they can come in a wide range of colours, while there are many marble styles.


Slate worktops or work surfaces can provide a really nice finish and these are designed to be long-lasting, while they can compliment both traditional and modern styles. Make sure you chose a surface that suits the tone of your kitchen, because it’s likely to remain an important part of your kitchen for many years.
