Types of Worktops For Your Bespoke Kitchen

There are a range of options when it comes to choosing your bespoke kitchen worktops. Below we have listed 6 of the main choices and discussed their advantages and how each have their own unique characteristics.

Quartz (Manmade)

Quartz is an engineered stone made from 93% quartz particles combined with other materials. With its glossy uniform finish, quartz is a luxurious choice for any bespoke kitchen. Whether it be for something contemporary or classic, quartz offers a range of colours and patterns providing options for any kitchen style.

Additionally, quartz can be made to mimic the appearance of natural stone incredibly effectively. For example, since marble is not a viable option for kitchen worktops, Quartz can be used as a great replacement.

In terms of practicality, Quartz is a durable, long-lasting choice, due to it being stain-resistant and easy to look after.


granite worktops

Granite is a timeless worktop choice that has been seen consistently in kitchen trends throughout the years. Due to being a natural stone, each piece of granite is completely unique and can range in a variety of patterns, colours, and markings. This also means that it can suit many different kitchen styles from traditional to modern.

Granite can add great character to any kitchen. Plus with it being heat-resistant and hard-wearing it makes a practical long-lasting choice for your gorgeous bespoke kitchen.


bespoke kitchen worktops

There are a range of options available when opting for timber worktops. They are a great way to bring warmth into a kitchen and this often works best when used in sections like the image above. They are also popular for more traditional or farmhouse style kitchens as they add to the character. However, they can definitely be incorporated into more modern designs.

Wooden worktops can be a practical choice as they are easy to get repaired if they become scratched or dented. Plus, they also have natural anti-bacterial properties.

Solid Surfaces

Solid surface is the term given to a type of worktop that is manufactured using both a mixture of resin and natural materials.

One main benefit to solid surface worktops is that they have completely seamless joins. This means the worksurface runs throughout the entire kitchen smoothly. It is a durable and strong choice for your bespoke kitchen and also comes in a variety of colours and styles.

Additionally, unlike some other worktop materials, solid surfaces can be easily repaired if they do become scratched or damaged. Another unique feature of solid surface worktops is that you can have moulded upstands which provide easier cleaning.


metal kitchen worktops

Metal worktops can make a great stand out feature for a bespoke kitchen. They can add contrast, texture, and character.

In the kitchen above we incorporated an aged copper worksurface to the island which adds a lovely warmth to the room. A unique factor with this choice of worktop is that the copper will never look the same. Through time its appearance will alter and age which is all a part of its distinct and stunning charm.


Concrete may not be the first material to come to mind when thinking of what worktop you want for your bespoke kitchen. However, it can be a distinct and unique choice that is great for adding textures to your kitchen.

They can work perfectly with industrial or modern designs. Colours are natural and range in more subtle tones of greys, whites, blacks, and earthy browns. They are also durable and can withstand direct heat.
