Real wooden worktops are unsurpassed by veneered imitations in both strength and beauty – and our Deluxe Sapele worktops are no exception. Indeed, these kitchen surfaces – which are perfect for infusing your space with an innate sense of warmth – have been awarded the accolade of ‘Worktop of the Month’. Read on to learn more!
Deluxe Sapele countertops are crafted from only the highest-quality raw materials, producing a work surface that is both beautiful and robust. Deeper in colour than iroko and warmer than black American walnut, sapele starts out pale but develops rich chestnut hues soon after installation.
Sapele boasts a wavy grain and an even texture, with a notable lack of knots; furthermore, it’s extremely hard-wearing – even denser than oak.
The Deluxe worktop configuration incorporates extra-wide, 90mm staves, which are perfect for displaying the timber’s attractive grain pattern to the fullest effect. Each of these staves is finger-jointed and glued under high pressure, creating durable, long-lasting worktops that measure up to 4M in length.
Complete the look of your Deluxe Sapele worktops with coordinating Deluxe Sapele worktop upstands – an elegant finishing touch that will disguise the expansion gap at the back of the counter. If you would like to balance the look with matching plinths, we also supply full stave sapele plinths that will coordinate beautifully.
