Kitchen Remodelling 101: Why You Need a Custom Benchtop

Modern custom kitchen benchtop design for kitchen remodelling

It’s always good to have options when it comes to kitchen remodelling. And if you’re planning to order a kitchen benchtop, you may find it easier to choose from your provider’s readily available designs. While you may think ordering a ready-made one is the more convenient option, you may encounter future problems, such as getting it in the wrong size and design unsuitable for your kitchen space. This is when a custom-made benchtop becomes the ideal option. We discuss the many benefits of choosing bespoke worktops for your home.


You can work around your budget

One of the best things about custom benchtops is you can narrow down your options by what you can afford. This way, you wouldn’t have to worry about falling in love with a kitchen benchtop that’s way out of your budget. You can discuss with a reputable manufacturer to create a custom benchtop within your budget. But remember, price shouldn’t compromise quality and durability. You may find benchtop repairs more costly than investing in a cheap yet flimsy benchtop or worktop. Choose a reputable manufacturer who can provide the best value for your money.


Suited for your cooking style

When you’re choosing a custom benchtop, you can easily make it specifically work for your cooking style and habits. If you like entertaining guests and leave the cleaning tasks for later, you can opt for stone benchtops that don’t stain easily. With a custom benchtop, you can also consider the weight carry capacity, heat tolerance, and sudden impact, ensuring you get the level of durability that works for your lifestyle.


You get the right size and shape for your kitchen space

You can have your benchtop in various sizes and thicknesses to suit your specific needs. Size is important when looking at the functional aspect of a custom benchtop. For example, if your benchtop is located against a wall, the maximum depth should be approximately 650mm, ensuring you get enough room to clean it. Island benches should come in widths that allow you to access both sides easily.


Get the aesthetic you want

Custom benchtops allow you to choose the look of a material. If you want a benchtop that matches your kitchen interior design, cabinetry, walls, and joinery, you can achieve that with a personalised benchtop.


Add uniqueness to your kitchens with custom benchtops

Your kitchen is the heart of your home. And one of the ways you can improve the look of your kitchen is through custom benchtops. They’re one of the most popular elements to be customised because they’re one of the highlights and statement pieces in kitchens. You can choose the material, texture, colour, and measurements you want to help you improve the look and function of your kitchens.
