Durable,  easy  to  clean  and  virtually  indestructible – who  doesn’t  want  a  kitchen  surface like  that?

Having  a  beautiful  marble  or  quartz  countertop  is  a  great  way  to  achieve  this,  but  not everyone  can  afford  a  material  that  costs  £200  per  square  foot.

Luckily,  there  is  a  cheaper  way  around  it – epoxy  resin.

It’s  a  type  of  plastic  that  is  not  only  gorgeous  and  easy  to  work  with,  but  also   extremely  durable  and  water  resistant.  Making  it  a  great  material  for  high  traffic  areas  and  around  sinks.

Epoxy  resin  can  be  applied  to  just  about  any  surface  commonly  found  in  kitchens,  whether  it’s  wood,  plywood  or  melamine – all  have  to  be  sanded  and  primed  before  application.

There  is  no  need  for  any  special  tools.  Ordinary  wood  stick,  squeegee,  old  brush,  and  a  few  plastic  buckets  and  cups  will  do  just  fine.  It’s  also  a  good  idea  to  get  some  masking  tape  and  plastic  sheets  to  protect  any  nearby  surfaces  like  the  cupboards  and  floor.

The  application  itself  is  easy  and  fun – it  involves  layering  different  shades  of  resin  to  create  any  desired  effect.

Many  places  now  sell  epoxy  resin  home  kits  specifically  designed  for  kitchen  worktop  overhaul.  It  costs  just  £100  for  a  small  kitchen  under  4m  long.

Visit  GlassCast website  to  see  their  kitchen  countertop  kits  and  choose  from  designs  like  marble,  granite,  quartz,  or  a  stunning  Jaded  Copper.

All  kits  come  pre-mixed  and  in  correct  amount,  so  there  is  no  need  to  worry  about  ordering  too  much  or  too  little.
