Using Stone to Create Luxury Kitchens

TeamOG Design Inspiration

When we think of luxury kitchens the first things that spring to mind are high-tech appliances, bespoke cabinetry and attention to detail. Incorporating a stone into the kitchen will give you a hard-wearing and durable surface as well as a luxury finish. There are many stones available, we recommend using a granite or quartz. In some circumstances marble can also be used, if you are looking to create a more rustic “used” look (marble is more prone to scratching and staining, since it is a softer and more porous material).

Both granite and quartz worktops are very hard-wearing and resistant to scratches. But more than this: they will add a touch of elegance to your kitchen and make it look very splendid. The worktops are available in a range of colours and in different finishes, allowing you to find a fitting solution for all types of kitchen, and creating that luxury finish you always dreamed of.

You are able to have a totally customised look: after you have chosen your material, you can then customise the finish: you can have different curves or angles, drainer grooves or a simple recess – the choice is yours.

Granite and quartz are naturally cool materials, making them perfect for worktops for a range of kitchen tasks. Below is the Titanium Granite we installed into a property in Clanfield. This is something very unique as no two slabs of Granite are the same being 100% natural. Our client wanted to make their island the statement of the hub of the home, so we did just that with this beautiful stone.

Below is the Black Starlight Quartz we fitted to an L-shaped kitchen in Oxford to create a monochrome style for out client against the traditional white cabinetry. It is 20mm in thickness with a classic and timeless design that will go with just about any kitchen colour and style you can think of.
