The cheapest worktops
If we choose the cheapest kitchen worktops, we need to know, that they are made from laminated material. First of all, this material is chipboard, which in practice is laminate covered. This type of material is available in many colours and patterns, that makes we can choose for our needs matt, shiny, smooth or rugged worktops. Unfortunately, buying these worktops we have to take into account that they are not damage proof and they can not be fixed. Additionally, these worktops are not resistant to high temperatures and it is easy to scratch them.
Currently, we often choose worktops covered with tiles. This material may be, for example clinker, gres tiles and terra cotta. These worktops have more advantages, additionally they are relatively cheap to purchase. Apart from that, material they are made from will be perfectly suitable for almost any interior, therefore they are superbly presenting in traditional kitchens and in modern also. Unfortunately, these worktops have one disadvantage – it is hard to make a joint. Additionally, this joint gets dirty fast, destroyed and thereby it is difficult to clean it.
Kitchen worktops made from wood are also very popular. Often hard wood like beech or oak is used as a material, which is additionally protected by lacquering. These types of worktops are quite expensive, but have some features that make them extremely practical. Wooden worktop is a great cost, but also very viable. If we choose a worktop in excellent quality we will be sure that it will serve us for a long time and it will not distort.
The most expensive worktops
The most expensive worktops are these, which are made from stone. As all they have advantages and disadvantages. First of all, you should know that these worktops easily get dirty, what cause that they need to be impregnated from time to time. Often they are made from stone, which is granite. This type of material is one of the most resistant to damage and also to high temperature. It makes that we can put on them hot dishes and even carve and chop the meat. Currently, these worktops are one of the often chosen, as they are very popular and appreciated. These worktops are characterized by unusual reliability, as regarding it’s nature it is hard to destroy the stone. Obviously, current producers give us a lot of possibilities, because natural stone can be replaced by synthetic stone. One of those materials is corian, which is made from milled stone and also epoxy-acrylic resins. Additionally, in the cake are also pigments. Currently, the worktops are made exactly from this material. Those worktops are not expensive and excellent in use.
Very expensive worktops are those made from glass and metal. Their characteristic feature is that they look more esthetic in modern interiors, but they are also used in traditional kitchens. These worktops give our interiors individual features, which make them difficult to compare with others.
Kitchen worktops – prices
Ordering the worktops to our interior we should remember also about the prices. We will pay much more for the worktop, ordered in kitchen studio than for this, which we will buy straight from producer, stonemason or even in a home-improvement store. This is because the kitchen studio will collect a large part of the amount for the project realization. In the second place we will pay only for the worktop, what will make the cost a lot bigger.
If you are looking for an idea, which worktop you should choose for the white kitchen, we advise you to match the colour with the floor or contrastingly – dark or bright wood.
