Would you be surprised to learn that worktops are a great way of adding value to your property? While the whole package is of course incredibly important, having a good quality worktop can actually work wonders for not only the appeal of your home when it comes to selling it, but also the price you can put it up for.
Of course, the ability to increase the value of your home with your kitchen worktop will depend greatly on the material you choose. Laminate worktops aren’t going to do much for you aside from making your kitchen look a little tidier. Choosing the right material is therefore paramount.
There are numerous factors to consider and surprise surprise, it doesn’t all rely upon you having a granite worktop installed, although these always work well. From style to maintenance and cost, there are numerous different things to take into consideration to ensure your property’s value increases while also providing you with a dream worktop space in your kitchen or bathroom.
The Best Worktop Materials To Invest In
To make it easier for you, we’ve listed below the best worktop materials for you to invest in. These won’t just provide you with a great worktop space but thanks to their incredible qualities and of course, their beautiful looks, they’ll contribute toward your property’s value too.
Granite is an incredibly popular worktop material and its popularity alone goes a long way to increasing a property’s appeal and therefore its value but that’s not the only reason. Granite is a durable, tough natural stone, that aside from an annual professional sealant, requires virtually no maintenance. It’s also timeless in its style which makes it a long term investment. Throw in the fact that it’s environmentally friendly, requiring no harsh chemicals when it’s quarried and it’s easy to see why this worktop material can provide quite the return on investment.
Quartz while slightly more expensive than granite is also an incredibly worthwhile investment. Quartz isn’t an entirely natural stone. It’s actually an incredible mix of natural stone and resin however it’s this mix that makes it so popular. Not only does it make it far more durable and tough, it also means quartz needs virtually zero maintenance. It can also be created in a vast amount of colour, to any size and shape. With a quartz worktop, you will easily see an ROI within the value of your property thanks to the appeal of this material.
Corian is another man-made countertop material, created through a beautiful marriage of nature and science. Because it’s man-made and contains an acrylic, it’s totally non-porous and therefore stain resistant making it incredibly popular. In fact it was created specifically to be maintenance free which gives it its appeal to most and therefore makes it so popular and once again, long lasting. While it is possible to chip Corian, it’s pretty difficult however it’s also very easily repaired making it a great addition in busy households.
Tristone is an incredibly elegant worktop that appeals to many. It’s made from 100% acrylic and is a totally solid surface. While it isn’t a natural stone per se, it is a wonderful and incredibly long lasting material that guarantees to be resistant to pretty much everything, from heat to bacteria, chemicals and even water stains. This makes it not only super popular but versatile too, being used in kitchens, bathrooms and even restaurants.
