A modern stone surface in the kitchen can be a better investment than you realise. Statistics show that you will need to upgrade your car before changing a quartz or granite surface in the kitchen or bathroom.

On average, a car in the UK will last 14 years and people who buy one from new will have it for around six years before selling*. We know that stone surfaces in the kitchen can last 20 years plus with the correct care and attention.

A stone surface provides a quality finish like no other, and it cannot be damaged in the same way as cheaper laminates or resin bound alternatives which do need updating through general wear and tear far quicker. Just one slip of a sharp knife or placing a hot pan down in the wrong area and your worktop will start to deteriorate.

And when you do decide to update your kitchen, you can easily keep the current stone surface in place and just update the cabinetry with new doors.

Finding a timeless classic from Königstone that will match most interiors for years to come is the perfect option!
