Do I need a worktop joining strip to connect two laminate worktops?

Question

“I’m going to order two of your grey oak laminate worktops for our L-shaped kitchen, but I can’t seem to see any worktop joining strip on your website. Is this not actually something I will need?”

Answer

Whilst a worktop joining strip was a popular accessory for installing laminate worktops in the early 90s, more recent advances in the quality of laminate work surfaces and precision cutting tools mean that laminate worktops can be very neatly joined together without the need for a worktop joining strip.

Instead of using a strip, we recommend using an electric router and one of our worktop router jigs to cut a mason’s mitre joint (sometimes known as a hockey stick joint). This type of joint creates a very clean connection between the two worktops that is sealed to create a very inconspicuous join.
