Laminated Benchtops

 

Your kitchen is the centre room of your home. Your kitchen benchtops are likely to be the most used surfaces.

 

Laminate benchtops are an easy-care and durable work surface. There is a wide range of colours, textures, finishes and edge profiles to choose from, so you can achieve the exact look you want.

 

Laminate is suitable for both residential and commercial environments.

 

Benchtop replacements are carried out quickly and cost effectively, which will transform your kitchen, giving you new colours that can be combined with modern sinkware and tapware.

 

Let us update your kitchen with a new benchtop, a cheaper option than a whole new kitchen, one which you will never regret.

 

Just by enhancing your existing worktops with new ones made from laminate, can modernise this area of your home.

Benchtop Quotations

 

We offer a free measure and quotation service for all benchtops manufactured in our factory.

Planning Style of Bench

Planning Style of Bench

 

When considering what you want your benchtop to look like, there are several things to think about:

 

1. Thickness - do you want the same thickness or change?

2. Sink - do you want to use the same sink or buy a new one?

3. Front Edge - what type of profile for the edge of the bench?

4. Tap - do you want to replace your existing tap?

 

All these questions can be answered by any of the team either on site, at our showroom or on the telephone.

Benchtop Thickness

 

Your benchtop can be any thickness you wish, we recommend starting at 36mm.

 

There only issue would be is whether or not our machinery could fabricate the size you

want, and this would be discussed by the staff on site, on phone or in our showroom.

Edge Profiles

 

Our specialised machinery has the capability of producing the popular tight radius, round/flat/round edge with a selection of laminates as well as the many standard profiles available in the marketplace.

The following examples are the most common:

 

Profile Description Antispill Thickness(mm)
Square any
Round/Flat/Round (RFR) Radius = 9, 12mm 36, 50, 60
Tight Form (TF6) Radius = 6mm 36, 50, 60
Freeform 180° (FF180) 26, 31, 36, 50
Freeform 90° (FF90) Radius = 9, 12mm 26, 31, 36, 50, 60
Timber Edge (TE) (specify type & profile) 26, 31, 36, 50
Sharknose (SN) 36, 50, 60
Coved Upstand N/A Specify overall height
Custom Edge Eg. Aluminium Specify

 

Upstands

Any benches where there is a sink, we highly recommend a coved upstand be placed behind.

 

Coved Upstand

A coved upstand is manufactured where the laminate coves up the back of the bench excluding any join and stopping any water getting underneath the laminate.

 

Square Upstand


A square upstand is manufactured separately and planted either behind or on top of the benchtop, showing a visable join which is sealed to stop water getting underneath the laminate.

Colour of Benchtop

 

Having difficulty deciding on what colour to choose for your benchtop, here are some questions to consider:

 

1. Flooring - are you keeping same or changing colour?

2. Walls - whether to be same colour or changing?

3. Adjacent Rooms - is colour to be compatible with other rooms nearby?

4. Kitchen Cabinetry - are you leaving existing or changing either now or in the future?

 

These questions are things to consider when deciding on the colour for your benchtops.
