Choosing Laminate Countertops for Kitchen Islands
As kitchens tend to be the main area for socialising in modern homes, kitchen islands have become an increasingly popular addition in spaces with both contemporary and traditional designs.
Islands help transform a kitchen into an area in which family and friends can be together, whether for food preparation, casual dining or even a work-related activity.
Whilst our solid wood worktops are a very popular choice for creating large kitchen islands, we also sell a range of extra-wide laminate countertops measuring 3M long and 900mm wide, which are an ideal option for creating an affordable, hard-wearing breakfast bar or kitchen island.
As standard, our 900mm-wide laminate worktops come with post-formed laminate edges on each of the long sides, whilst edging tape is provided that allows you to finish the two shorter edges.
Alternatively, the team behind our bespoke cutting service can apply the edging strips for you, and can also customise laminate worktops with cut-outs for hobs and sinks, as well as complementary tap holes.
Whichever size of worktop you may require to create a perfect kitchen island, our fabrication team have the skills to make a laminate worktop to your exact specifications.
Fabrication Services for Creating Kitchen Island Laminate Countertops
Cut-to-Size Laminate Worktops
Unless you have a very large kitchen space, it is unlikely that you will want a kitchen island as long as our standard 3M x 900mm laminate worktops.
Order our cut-to-size service to get a laminate kitchen island top to suit your kitchen space.
Worktop Edging Strip Application
As standard our 3M x 900mm laminate countertops come with two post-formed edges and two edges that require finishing using worktop edging strip.
Our team can apply the edging strip precisely and with minimal fuss, meaning that your worktop will be ready to install as soon as it arrives.
Overmounted Sink Cut-Out
A kitchen island is the perfect location for a sink, freeing up valuable worktop space in the rest of your kitchen and increasing efficiency.
Our team can cut holes for overmounted or ‘inset’ sinks in any size you require, allowing you to install a sink straight away and with ease.
If you are short on countertop space, a kitchen island can also play host to your hob.
Like sink cut-outs, our team can cut an aperture to accommodate any size of hob, ready for your kitchen fitter to simply slot the hob into place.
Tap Hole Cut-Out
You may require a separate tap hole cut-out to accompany your sink. As standard, our team can cut holes in the commonly-requested size of 35mm (though we can accommodate any other size of hole that you may require for accessories such as pop-up plug sockets, too).
