According to kitchen renovation specialist, Granite Transformations, black is back as the latest trend for worktops in the kitchen.
Even though last year earthen tones gained popularity, black worktops have made a keen revival, as born out by their recycled glass counter top Black Star, now achieving 23% of Granite Transformations’ sales.
In addition, all black worktop sales represent 54% of all fittings and its granite surfaces Nero Galaxy and Stella have also proved exceptionally popular.
Main reasons why Black Star is so much in demand:
- The worktop possesses fragments of mirror speckle, which produces an unbelievable sparkling effect beneath halogen lighting.
- The diamond polished face features especially deep shades of black and blue, which match any kitchen, modern or rustic having any colour of cabinets.
- It boasts exceptional resistance to heat, cuts, stains, scratches, impact and chemicals.
- A black worktop gives a kitchen a refined yet welcoming look, loved by most homeowners.
Granite Transformations supplies its high quality, hard wearing worktops to consumers direct, via its numerous showrooms.
Its slim line worktops can be installed directly over existing kitchen materials, allowing homeowners to keep up with modern decor.
It also offers and installs new cupboard doors and drawer faces.
Especially popular are glossy acrylic covered doors in white and cream, as are Shaker styles in light oak and pear woodgrains, alabaster and white and zinc flat matt surfaces.
Black or black-veined counter tops go together with all the above door colours, generating a fashionable minimalist appearance and even complement high gloss colours such as red, plum and paprika.
Another kitchen worktop development is the growing use of recycled materials. The use of recycled glass tops, made from discarded wine, beer and mineral bottles was pioneered by Transformations and Trend.
