Kitchen worktop choices

There are many choices out there for kitchen worktops nowadays. Will you go for a farmhouse kitchen look or something more industrial?  Granite worktops are a popular option.

I would definitely put dirty kitchen worktops in my Room 101. When they are clean, my mind is happier. It’s tough sometimes to stay on top of housework as a busy mum juggling work, volunteering and parenting. Black tends to look more clean and laminate is easy to keep tidy. These days now I have a little more time on my hands I might go for something a little wilder with a vibrant colour.
