Every mum dreams of her perfect kitchen, whether that be a large family room for baking sessions or a stylish kitchen to accommodate friends; kitchens are one of the most important rooms in the family home.

It can sometimes be difficult to keep your family kitchen looking clean and damage free. Wouldn’t a kitchen worktop that looks great, resists stains, scratches and bacteria, make our lives so much easier?

Take a look at my 5 things you need to look at for the perfect worktops for family kitchens.

1. Scratch Resistant

Over the years family worktops can suffer from everyday wear and tear.  You need a worktop that is durable with a high level of resistance to external aggressions. Find teh right one and there is no longer a need for chopping boards, as some surfaces allow you to cut straight onto it without making a scratch.

2. Bacterial Protection

Having a bacteria free kitchen is important and even more so when you have a family. Kitchen’s easily attract germs, that’s why its important to keep it as hygienic as possible.

3. Impact Resistant

Worktops in family homes can have a hard life. Find a surface that has the ability to withstand scratches, knocks, items being dropped on it, stains, scolds and mould too. You want one that lasts for years as it a lifelong investment for your kitchen.

4. Stain Resistant

You will want a non-porous surface that is highly resistant to harsh stains; spilt coffee or red wine. Everyday products can easily be wiped away without leaving a mark, keeping your kitchen looking as good as new.

5. Colours and Textures

You will want to give your family kitchen a stylish look.  Choose a worktop that compliments your design.
