  1. Hi I.m getting my kitchen fitted on sat 15 th of December how many days does it take for delivery to Paisley for a black sparkle solid laminate worktop thanks.

  2. Hi Paul,

    We offer a next-day delivery service to the majority of England, Scotland and Wales (including Paisley) for standard orders placed before 12 noon (our bespoke service has slightly longer lead times). We recommend placing your order as soon as possible, as we usually do not recommend arranging fitters until after your worktop has been delivered and you are happy with it.

    Kind regards,
    Stephanie @ Worktop Express

  3. Hi, how are solid laminate worktops joined – is it the same as ordinary laminate ?

  4. Hello Chris,

    We actually recommend using a biscuit joint to fix solid laminate worktops together and a 2-part epoxy resin to secure in position and seal. You can find step-by-step instructions for doing this in our installation instructions here: and you can purchase a Zenith worktop installation kit here:

  5. Hi
    Is there a minimum unsupported span for using solid laminate?
    When finishing the edges of the white marble solid laminate, what is suggested to seal the edge that won’t discolour the ‘white’ look?

  6. Hello Sara,

    The maximum unsupported overhang we’d recommend is 300mm on solid laminate worktops. The edges of our white marble solid laminate surfaces can be oiled using linseed oil, and this should not discolour the edge.

    Kind regards,

  7. Hi, my work top length is 4.2m x600.
    I see on your black sparkle ordinary lamenate you go upto 4.1m. Would your fabrication team be able to make one 4.2m?
    Ditto on the solid lamenate, would prefer.
    Thanks. Kev

  8. Hello Kevin

    Thank you for your message. Although we cannot make a full 4.2m long black sparkle worktop, we can create the butt joints so that all you have to do is connect them together once delivered. Unfortunately, our solid laminates are connected in a slightly different way, using biscuit joints, which we currently do not offer on our bespoke service.

    If you contact us on 0345 22 22 644 our team will be able to help. You can also send a fabrication diagram through to our team via, or you can use our innovative, interactive online bespoke worktop tool which currently offers 10% off all fabrication services.

    Kind regards,
    Stephen @ Worktop Express

  9. Hi, can you have Belfast sinks with this worktop?

  10. Hello Natalie

    Thank you for your message. Yes, the solid composition of these worktops makes them suitable for use with undermount sinks, including Belfast sinks.

    Kind regards,
    Stephen @ Worktop Express
