Our Worksurfaces

The material and finish of a worktop can define a kitchen. We have a wide range to choose from, all tailor made by specialist craftsmen at the purpose built factory next door to the Design Centre.

Corian and Hi-MacsCorian and Hi-Macs are the two leading producers of man-made worktops which combine the beauty of a worktop made from natural materials with some added practical features. They can be molded into any shape and are non-porous so won't harbour germs or bacteria.

GraniteGranite is one of the most popular choices for a worktop. It has a hard-wearing and stunning surface and, because it's a natural substance, each worktop will have a finish that's unique to that household.

Silestone QuartzSilestone Quartz is 94% natural quartz and is the only quartz worktop with anti-bacterial protection. There are more than 60 colours available to suit the look and feel of any kitchen design.

TimberIf you want to introduce a warm and welcoming appearance into the kitchen you're designing, natural timber could be the perfect finish for you. There is a selection of 12 different woods available from traditional oak to the rich tones of walnut.
