3 questions you need to answer when replacing your worktop

When choosing your worktop there are three questions you need to ask yourself:

• How will you use your kitchen?
• Which style are you looking for?
• What is your budget?

The main question to ask yourself is; How do you see yourself using your kitchen? Are you a frequent chef or more of an impulsive cooker? After having been figuring this out it then comes to your spending budget; What is your overall kitchen budget and how much of it would you like to spend on your worktop? Maybe you are more indecisive and have an idea of changing your worktop in a few years. It is all about prioritising.
