Choosing the right worktops can be an important consideration for any kitchen space, contemporary or traditional. from the material choice to the colour, there are a number of important factors to take into account. Seamless surfaces have become a popular option, but why? And how can these be used effectively? Well, here at MLS Kitchens, we are Manchester’s leading kitchen design professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about seamless surfaces in the kitchen.
What are seamless surfaces?
Seamless surfaces involve creating worktops and even backsplashes without any join, in one seamless piece. This can be used for the worktops throughout the kitchen, even where there is a bend or corner, and single piece worktops and backsplashes can also be created.
What are the advantages of using seamless surfaces in the kitchen?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to using seamless surfaces in the kitchen, and these include:
- More hygienic- the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home to keep clean and hygienic as this is where food is prepared for the household. When there are joins or seals between worktop surfaces, or between the worktop and the backsplash, these can become the perfect breeding places for mould and bacteria to live and thrive. This is especially true for the areas around the sink which tend to be damp. When you opt for seamless surfaces, these joins are removed and there are no cracks or gaps for bacteria to thrive in.
- Range of design choices- from using contrasting colours for the worktop and backsplash to using patterned or textured styles, there are a wide range of design options available to suit every style of kitchen. This means that you can choose seamless surfaces for an effective result in a traditional, country, rustic, or contemporary kitchen.
