Solid Surface Benchtops

Solid Surface Benchtops

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

 

Acrylic is ideal for benchtops and services areas. It is non-porous solid surface, composed from natural minerals, bound by acrylic resins, makes it a particularly strong surface and it's smooth finish lends it to bold finishes.  Acrylic happily moulds to work with sharp angles or flowing corners and seamless joins.

 

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 solid surface material, can modernise this area of your home.

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, on phone, or at our showroom.

Benchtop thickness

Your bench can be any thickness you wish, we recommend starting at 42mm.

There are two profiles that we can fabricate the edge of your bench

1. Rolled edge

2. Square edge

Upstands

 

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

 

Coved Upstand

 

This is achieved by a seamless cove of the Acrylic material up the back of the bench, thereby alleviating the change of water leaking through.

Colour of Benchtop

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

1. The colour of your flooring and whether you are thinking of changing?

2. What colour is on the existing walls or what they will be?

3. What colour is in the other rooms adjacent to the kitchen?

4. The colour of your kitchen cupboards and drawers, are they staying the same?

All the above are things to think about when choosing a solid surface colouring.

Our company uses a variety of different solid surfaces, of which, we have many samples on display in our showroom.

If you would like some assistance in helping to choose the appropriate colour, our staff are always available.
