WHAT MATERIAL SHOULD YOU CHOOSE FOR YOUR COUNTERTOP?
The countertop is a central part of your kitchen. Not only does it impact the look and feel of the kitchen, but also your daily routine depending on the level of required maintenance. The ideal countertop fits your kitchen style, your needs for features and your cleaning routines.
Our designs have been developed by renowned architects and designers. For each of our design series, a countertop has been selected to match the design and make sure that the kitchen and countertop correspond in terms of look and feel. In some cases, the designers recommend more than one type of countertop with different qualities and features, allowing you to choose a material that suits your daily routine.
Choose a countertop to match your kitchen style
The countertop should be chosen to fit the design and style of the kitchen and the kitchen space in general. Consider choosing a countertop that matches the material or color of the kitchen fronts or create a contrast with a different material or color.
The countertop can determine the overall look of the kitchen: a kitchen with wooden fronts can be completed with a countertop in solid oak - but it can also be completed with a countertop in stainless steel to add a different tactility.

WHAT SINK SHOULD YOU CHOOSE FOR YOUR COUNTERTOP?
Before you decide on the shape and size of your kitchen sink, you should consider how you use your sink in your daily life. In that way, you can be sure that the sink fits your needs.
Shape and size
Consider what size of sink is most suitable for your kitchen. The size should follow the width of the cabinet under the sink, if you want to be sure there is enough space.
Many people underestimate the impact of the sink size: if the plan allows it, it can be useful to prioritize a large sink for daily usage in the kitchen. This is where you prepare your vegetables, cut your flowers and wash your pots and pans. It can be nice to have plenty of space in the sink - and as a bonus, it leaves room underneath for garbage assortment.
Also the shape of the sink is worth considering: it can be a great advantage to choose a sink that is easy to clean and maintain. Most sinks have a built-in drop in the bottom allowing the water to float naturally to the drain. It can also be an advantage with rounded corners in the sink to make sure it is possible to clean the sink easily.
What material should you choose for your sink?
Just like the material of the countertop, the sink material impacts the final look of the kitchen, but also the level of maintenance. Maybe you prefer a material to fit other details in the kitchen such as the handles, faucet or color of the kitchen. Also the level of maintenance should be part of your considerations.
