    Choosing a worktop

    Hi all,

    I'm wondering if you can recommend the best material for a kitchen worktop. I really love wood, but I'm worried that it's not the best for hygienic cleaning.

    I'm seriously leaning towards engineered stone (a mix of ground stone, dye to give colour with a glue to hold it together and form a hard worktop), Caesarstone quartz specifically. Has anyone used it? Would you recommend?

    Thanks icon_smile.gif

    I love wood too, but I certainly wouldn't have it for a kitchen work surface, although I have been in kitchens where they had them, but I think they were holiday homes, and probably didn't take much heavy use.

    Can't help you on the choices though, I have regular worksurfaces, although they are edged with pine to match the units. I know it's trendy to have granite or similar these days, very hard wearing I would think if you can afford it. icon_smile.gif
