5 ways to make your granite and quartz kitchen worktops stand out

A quartz or granite worktop makes a show-stopping addition to your home. But, as part of your kitchen design, there are a number of additional features you can include to enhance the final appearance of your worktops and make them really stand out!

Here are just some of the extras you might want to include to add wow-factor (and practicality) to your kitchen design.

1. Drainer grooves

Drainer grooves make a stunning addition to a stone worktop. Just as important, they stop water creeping along the counter top, and prevent everything (including your floor) from getting wet. Because quartz is non-porous, it’s a fantastic material for drainer grooves. Find out more.

Surprisingly, drainer grooves are so popular they are among our most liked images on Pinterest!
