How to Choose the Right Countertops for Your High-End Kitchen

When it comes to designing a high-end kitchen, the countertops play a crucial role in setting the tone and overall aesthetic of the space. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you choose the right countertops for your kitchen.

1. Granite:

Granite is a popular choice for high-end kitchens due to its durability, heat resistance, and natural beauty. It comes in a wide range of colors and patterns, making it easy to find a style that complements your kitchen’s overall design.

2. Marble:

Marble countertops are another popular choice for high-end kitchens. They have a timeless, classic look and are also heat-resistant. However, marble is a porous stone and requires regular sealing to prevent staining, that’s why it’s important to consider maintenance when choosing marble.

3. Quartz:

Quartz countertops are a great option for those who want the look of natural stone without the maintenance. They are made of engineered stone and are non-porous and scratch-resistant, making them easy to clean and maintain. They also come in a wide variety of colors and patterns, mimicking natural stone.

4. Solid Surface:

Solid surface countertops, such as Corian and Hi-Macs are another great option for high-end kitchens. They are made of a combination of acrylic and natural minerals, which makes them non-porous, easy to clean and repairable. They also can be seamlessly integrated into the sink, creating a uniform look.

5. Wood:

Wood countertops are a great option for those who want to create a warm and inviting kitchen. They are available in a variety of types of wood, from hardwoods such as walnut, cherry, and oak, to softer woods like pine and cedar. They need to be sealed and oiled regularly to maintain their beauty.
When choosing countertops for your high-end kitchen, it’s important to consider factors such as durability, maintenance, and overall aesthetic.

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We certainly weren’t the easiest customers , we weren’t sure what we wanted or when ! However Donna, Richard, Rich and their amazing team guided us through the process with utter professionalism as well as warmth and patience. The results exceeded our expectations, particularly the attention to every detail. They wouldn’t rest until they knew we were happy with everything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Woodworks provided us with excellent service, from planning and design to finished kitchen

Build quality is excellent and it really does give the house the WOW factor

Our kitchen was part of a new build process for house we have built from scratch. Deadlines constantly moved, and Woodworks worked around everybody to get the job done on time and in full

After sales is very good, with tweaks to doors and cupboards all part of the service!

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with The Wood Works. Our existing kitchen was 20 years old, and the layout of the room did not make use of the available space. Josh produced inspired ideas for re-designing the whole area, and really listened to what we wanted to achieve, patiently fine-tuning the plans to our particular requirements. We are now the proud owners of a stunning and practical new kitchen which has completely exceeded our expectations. When my sister visited for the first time, she said "it looks like the kitchen of a celebrity chef!" (which I am not). What a transformation. The Wood Works is a family-run business, and that really shows in terms of their professional service, quality of fittings, attention to detail, reliability and easy communication. Nothing was too much trouble. At the start of the project, Josh promised we would have our kitchen by Christmas. I was sceptical as we were in the midst of the pandemic, but they delivered as promised, with no hitches. Thoroughly recommend.


Brilliant Service!

We are delighted with the kitchen supplied and fitted by The Woodworks. The design, look and quality is brilliant. The designer (Tom Dodd), the project manager (Andy Neville) and the fitters were all brilliant. Always helpful and responsive. A really pleasing experience with Woodworks and a brilliant finished kitchen.

The design collated by Tom was brilliant and tailored brilliantly to our exact requirements.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
