Put Cake Plates to good use

One of the best ways to style marble kitchen worktops is to incorporate a cake plate in the central design.

Create groupings for similar kitchen essentials

Creating groupings for different and yet similar kitchen essentials is another great décor idea for quartzite worktops. You can use canisters, trays or even baskets to group essentials like pepper, salt, vinegar, spices, etc. You can also choose to group items like certain utensils, which are not used frequently in the kitchen but can remain on the countertop without cluttering the space. Quartzite stones come mainly from Brazil and some other tropical countries and are sure to elevate the status of any room. In addition, since this natural stone is volcanic, you can avail it in huge slabs covering areas of up to 6.5 square metres.

Display more than just ingredients on the worktop surface

Why relegate Silestone worktops to displaying food items, ingredients and utensils, when you can use them to display much more? Adding some cookbooks to the kitchen is a great idea to blend the kitchen décor with the rest of the home. You can also display a visually appealing art piece on the kitchen backsplash to elevate the look of the worktop.

Don’t mess around with soaps and detergents

The area around the sink in most kitchens tends to be an eyesore due to the cleaning ingredients kept around it. If you are one of those individuals who prefer to keep the soaps, detergents and sponges on the kitchen countertop or the windowsill above the sink, here’s an idea for you. Instead of placing soaps and sponges directly on Caesarstone worktops, consider placing them inside a container. In addition to de-cluttering the area, this will elevate the look of your kitchen easily.
