Pure white granite worktop
Just been doing a bit of reading, and it seems anything pure white is likely to be engineered quartz i.e. crushed quartz and c.8% resin to bond it together.
Which will be a more reliable material with fewer flaws than a high quartz granite that the speckled cream one would be.

We wanted White Corian but it’s too expensive. It strikes me as bizarre that the next cheapest option is Granite. I reckon it’ll stain really easily or something but choosing colours in the kitchen is not my job.
It’s funny, I’ve remortaged our house, bought another house, rented our old house out, sorted out every single bit of paperwork for the move… everything, carried on earned the money to make all this happen without any assistance from the wife because this stuff stresses her out.
Her only job was to tell a kitchen fitter what she wanted in the kitchen. It’s a job that would take a man 7 minutes. Guess which bit of the whole, entire moving process has caused us the most pain and has taken the longest to accomplish? And guess who’s had to pick up the management of it because it’s proving too stressful? FFS.Posted 4 years ago
just had this fitted to the kitchen I’m doing at ours;
it’s this stuff:
one thing I would say is that it shows every mark, crumb and spec of dust mercilessly. It does look lovely when it is clean though and god knows what crud there was lurking on our previous dark coloured worktop that never got seen.
Oh, and we’re getting lime coloured glass splashback and upstands for me to fit I’m told.Posted 4 years ago
One problem is that my wife has a cleaning business that specialises in looking after very rich people. Every one of her clients is a millionaire. So she’s looking in their houses and seeing these dirty great massive kitchens the size of a basketball pitch that have worktops made of jewel encrusted mahogany or something and that’s what she wants.
“but, my sweet” I implore, “I’m not a millionaire and it may have crossed your radar that we’re in the process of buying a house that I’m going to have to write a million firewall rules to pay for.”
You’d think then, that they pay really well but no, they’re all kings of industry and manage to negotiate the absolute minimum price for her services.Posted 4 years agoBlazin-saddlesMember
I can see big drawers being much better than bend down and peer in cupboards.
The best thing in out kitchen is the deep drawers. So much easier to get into than cupboards.
I fit kitchens for a living and try to spec drawer units wherever possible as it stops people crawling around the kitchen on hands and knees trying to find something at the back of cupboards.Posted 4 years ago
