As a bespoke kitchen company, we can offer a huge range of modern kitchen worktops, including among others, composite stone, marble, granite, toughened glass, wood, stainless steel and polished concrete. We can build practically anything into a contemporary kitchen work surface, including among many other things, pop-up sockets, lights and recessed gas hobs.
What to consider when deciding on a worktop
Think about how you use your kitchen, for example, do you often prepare food with lots of spicy colour in it or do you regularly move hot things from hob to oven? Different types of work surfaces suit various cooking methods and foods in different ways. The best option is a combination of beauty and practicality. Check out some ideas in our worktops gallery.
Natural stone worktops
For looks and longevity beautiful, rare and unusual natural stone is hard to beat. Once it’s quarried the same piece will never be found again and you will have something not only beautiful but unique. When you find a stunning piece, you can allow it to take centre stage in your designer kitchen.
Stainless steel has an industrial, professional kitchen vibe with patinated evidence of use building up over time. Similarly polished concrete, while tough, it needs to be carefully looked after, although wear and tear adds to its character, with age improving the patina. Toughed glass is durable and comes in one piece so no need for joints. With added lighting it can look very dramatic in an upscale kitchen.
Zoning with kitchen worktops
In our made to measure kitchens there’s no need have the same work surface everywhere – the latest kitchen islands we design for example, use different heights, and different work surfaces, to define zones – for cooking, prepping – on a practical stainless steel work top and eating – at a solid Wenge wood breakfast bar.
