As another month goes by, a fleet of magnificent modified wooden worktops passes through the hands of our incredibly skilled fabrication team. This month they have created in excess of 570 bespoke wooden worktops for kitchens around the country, and here on the blog we have picked three of the best for your delectation.
For a hard-wearing worktop that is undeniably sleek, our luxuriously dark wenge worktops sit at the top of the pile. This lavish timber hails from mid to western Africa, and is one of the heaviest and most dense worktops available – 50% more than oak.
This particular bespoke wenge worktop was created by making two irregular cut-outs in a 720mm wide worktop, allowing it to sit in a specified gap in the customer’s kitchen. Once the worktop had been cut to size by our fabrication team, it was given a number of coats of oil to protect it prior to installation.If you would like wenge to feature as the centrepiece in your kitchen, this collection starts at £300 for a 2M x 620mm x 27mm worktop.
Walnut worktops are one of our most popular options and it is easy to see why. This European timber features a variety of rich colour and an intricate grain pattern that suits both modern and traditional kitchen themes.
To create this magnificent kitchen island worktop, our fabrication team first joined two worktops to create an extra-wide surface over a metre wide. Next, an irregular sink cut-out was made for a 1.5 bowl undermounted sink, and a soft profile edge was applied. The outer edge of the worktop was given a traditional ‘ogee’ edge profile that adds an extra intricate detail, finishing this worktop perfectly.
If walnut looks like the ideal timber choice for your kitchen, then why not consider purchasing one today? Our walnut worktops have up to 10% off until the end of April, meaning that prices currently start at just £170 for a 3M x 620mm x 27mm worktop.
Full Stave Black American Walnut
Another popular, dark worktop comes in the form of our full stave black American walnut worktops. They have a stunning grain and rich colouration that is only accentuated further in full stave examples such as this.
This 4 metre worktop was given a number of fabrications by our team, including sink and hob cut-outs and an irregular cut to fit the worktop perfectly into the customer’s kitchen. We also routed worktop connector bolt cut-outs on the underside of the worktop, allowing it to connect easily to an accompanying worktop. Finally, the worktop was given multiple coats of oil to protect it in transit and prior to installation.
Our full stave black American worktops are perfect for luxurious kitchens, but are still reasonably priced, starting at £340 for a 2M x 620mm x 40mm worktop.
