Kitchen worktops: Making the best decision for your kitchen

There are so many questions to answer when choosing your new kitchen, and perhaps one of the most important is what kind of worktop you should go for. Whether you’re a baker, the family chef, or just want to quickly put together a meal and go, your choice of worktop is central to how successful your kitchen design is for you.

The Bad Old Days 


Not long ago, all kitchens were fairly similar, easy to date to within a decade, and usually sourced from, and fitted by – a flat-pack specialist or DIY store. Fortunately, nowadays we’re a lot more discerning – and indeed demanding. We need a quality kitchen, fit-for-purpose, that will really last – that’s why Ramsbottom Kitchens are a proud partner of Sheraton kitchens for beautiful and well-crafted kitchens which bring British design, functionality and understated luxury to your home.

A Good Kitchen Needs A Good Worktop


With such good quality and enduring kitchens, it’s imperative to have an equally robust yet elegant worktop, and this is why here at Ramsbottom Kitchens, we are proud associates of Dekton and Silestone worktops.

Silestone and Dekton – combining form and function


Dekton is one of the most stylish and innovative worktop manufacturers around today, using the finest glass, porcelain and quartz coupled with ground-breaking Sinterized Particle Technology, which accelerates the metamorphic changes that stone would normally undergo over thousands of years. The technology used creates a surface of zero-porosity – which, in layman’s terms means you won’t have to worry about marks and stains. They’re also resilient, durable and damage-resistant as well as available in many colours and finishes – fitting seamlessly into most kitchen designs.

Silestone have the picture-perfect worktop to complement every kitchen. From the most sleek, glossy and contemporary to a timeless and classic solid wood style, Silestone offer it all. In addition to this, their worktops come with a 25-year written guarantee and are resistant against scratches, the toughest stains and even acid! In a comprehensive range of colours and three innovative textures, such as volcano for a raw, natural look, luxurious suede and original polished, you’re sure to find the right style for your kitchen design.

Both Dekton and Silestone are renowned not just for their unquestionable style credentials, but for the total and unflinching dedication to quality and longevity, so why not complete the kitchen of your dreams with a worktop that won’t only stand the test of time, but will fit in seamlessly with both your kitchen design and allow you to get the best out of your kitchen.
