Kitchen Worktops: A mountain to climb?

Kitchen worktops are a major expense – especially stone ones. They aren’t as expensive as a new kitchen, of course, but they are a significant add-on to what is already a pricey project. At a time of real financial uncertainty, big expense can mean a big headache. As I write, the council and mayoral election results are coming in minute by minute, reminding me that the country is not in a stable or happy situation. Creeks and paddles come to mind!

The other issue with solid stone kitchen worktops is that it takes even the enthusiastic DIYer out of his or her comfort zone. The materials, the range of choice, the terminology, the requirements for installation, the mystique of templating, and the care and maintenance of quartz or granite worktops once installed all seem rather strange and challenging, even to people who would take a bit of wallpapering or painting in their stride.
