Has spending more time at home made you realise your existing kitchen isn’t working for you? Or were you planning your dream kitchen during lockdown?

Adding built-in breakfast bars, wine fridges and mobile phone charging points to your kitchen island creates a multi-functioning workspace.

Director of stoneCIRCLE, Steve Vanhinsbergh reveals three ways you can introduce the natural beauty of stone into your kitchen.

1. Design and fit custom-made, bespoke stone countertops

Transform the look of your kitchen with stunning, stone countertops. Pick your choice of stone - granite, sintered stone or quartz - in the colour you want. Your new countertop can be cut-to-size to fit any space.

Customise the edges of your worktop. Smooth, straight edges work well in contemporary homes. Curved, bevelled edges suit a more traditional look.

“Order built-in kitchen appliances from us too, to make planning your new renovation easy,” Steve said.

“You can buy built-in ovens and fridges perfect for your kitchen from us, so you don’t have to visit lots of different suppliers, thanks to our partnership with Miele.”

Other accessories, like built-in mobile phone charging units, will help you create a multi-functioning space ideal for home working, cooking and socialising.

2. Refresh your kitchen with a stone upstand and splashback

Install a stone kitchen upstand to hide uneven walls. Match it to the design of your worktop for a smooth, uniform finish.

“Fitting an upstand that’s made from the same material as your worktop, instead of tiling, will tie the overall look of your kitchen together,” Steve advised.

Use a stone splashback, in a matching or contrasting shade to your worktop, to add a practical touch to your kitchen that is also decorative.

A splashback will protect your walls against splashes that occur as you cook.

3. Use stone tiling on your floor and walls

Stone is a long-lasting, durable material that requires little maintenance and is easy to clean, making it the ideal material for your kitchen floor and walls.

“The natural beauty of stone tiles will add elegance to your kitchen and increase the value of your property,” Steve said.

Personalise your walls and floors, to create the ideal backdrop for your dream kitchen. You can choose from a range of standard tiles in limestone, travertine or porcelain, or stoneCIRCLE can cut slabs to size in the stone of your choice to really make your kitchen unique.
