Steel

Real Homes - - Advice -

Stain­less steel can be a bold and prac­ti­cal choice for your kitchen worktops, and it looks fan­tas­tic when paired with nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like wood. Think about what units you’ll com­bine it with to avoid the space look­ing like a pro­fes­sional restaurant kitchen. The ma­te­rial is usu­ally cut from a sin­gle sheet to avoid joins.

Pros

Strong and durable

Nat­u­rally anti-bac­te­rial and easy to clean

Wa­ter­proof and heat re­sis­tant Very light

Cons

Can look cold and clin­i­cal Dif­fi­cult to in­te­grate into large ar­eas

Prone to scratches

Costs

From around £70 per m

Stain­less steel, con­crete and glass worktops look fab­u­lous in large and small kitchens alike, but to avoid the space look­ing too clin­i­cal, con­sider in­tro­duc­ing warm, nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like tim­ber else­where in the room
