A beautiful quartz worktop and backsplash in my opinion is key to completing the look of a new kitchen. The image above was how my kitchen looked before the worktop and splashback placements.
I’ve always gone for Quartz as a worktop material because it is highly resilient from scratch, stain and heat.
Aesthetically, I think quartz looks very sleek and it’s a great way of introducing a luxury feel to a space without breaking the bank.
Whilst researching worktops for my kitchen, I came across Gemini Worktops, a family run business with a wealth of experience.
I have researched the company both online and in Facebook groups, and the reviews were great, so I decided to give them a go.
They had a fully comprehensive measuring, design and installation service.I requested 4 samples to pick from. These samples were free.I wanted the kitchen to feel light, bright and elegant. The samples that I picked were either white for a more contemporary feel to those with a marble veining effect.I ended up picking the Statuario Ice Quartz because I loved the grey veining and I felt it really complimented the grey cabinets of my kitchen well.Here it is up close, what do you think?The whole process from sample ordering to the final fix was seamless.The template process included using laser technology for measuring.The process took around 2 hours.
After the templating, the worktop and splashback manufacturing subsequently began quickly. The wait time for the quartz worktop and splashback was therefore relatively short.At an agreed time, the installers came to place my new worktop and splashback.The installers took around a day to install because the stone was heavy and they took great care.There was a quartz piece that needed a trim and Gemini Worktops took it away to sort. They came back after a few days to fix, with no issues at all.I’m pleased with how the Statuario Ice quartz from Gemini Worktops have lifted the look of my kitchen. It’s gone from a contemporary smart feel to an elegant luxurious look.
What do you think about the quartz worktop and splashback?
Finally, hope you have enjoyed the post. Meanwhile, I will be back soon with more Interiors posts, including my favourite finds from Maison et Objet and Paris Design week.
In short, have a lovely week all. x
