November is historically one of the busiest months here at Worktop Express, and this year has been no exception. In fact, we have seen well in excess of 750 fantastic bespoke kitchen worktops pass through the hands of our worktop fabrication team – an amazing effort by all involved.
Though it is always tricky to keep up with so many worktops passing through our facility, we have picked out three superb examples to feature in our latest fabrication diary:
Grey Oak Laminate
These grey oak laminate worktops offer a realistic representation of full stave oak worktops, stained to create an antique effect that looks superb in a range of kitchen interior designs. The square edges and textured surface provide a stylish replication of real wood.
This custom laminate worktop features an irregular cut that was made to accommodate the customer’s kitchen walls. By having the worktop customised by Worktop Express before delivery, it ensures the worktop can be installed straight away with minimal expertise.
Cherry is a wood that is often overlooked in favour of more widely-known timbers, but is actually one of the best choices for creating a smooth, hard-wearing kitchen surface. The colour and grain patterns make it well-suited to a classic kitchen setting, but it looks equally at home alongside glossy contemporary kitchen cabinets.
This particular cherry worktop was customised by our worktop fabrication team to feature a cut out that accommodates a double oven hob. Another smaller cut was made to allow the worktop to fit snugly against the customer’s kitchen wall whilst allowing for a pre-existing feature.
Our caramel bamboo worktops are a darker alternative to our standard bamboo surfaces, showcasing a rich golden tone that is derived from a caramelisation process which deepens the bamboo’s colour throughout. Bamboo has a very high silica content, which makes it a naturally water resistant and hygienic surface for kitchens.
To create this bespoke kitchen worktop a caramel bamboo surface has been cut by our fabrication team to accommodate a double oven hob. As with all the custom worktops that pass through our facility, the wood was given coats of Rustin’s Danish oil (a treatment which serves to hydrate and protect the timber) before being wrapped and delivered by our 2Man team.
These are just a small selection of the bespoke kitchen worktops created and delivered by Worktop Express over the last month. If you would like to see more examples of our work, please visit our Bespoke Worktops Gallery.
