“What tools do I need for cutting kitchen worktop?” Question of the Week 12/01/2018
“What tools do I need for cutting kitchen worktop?”
Our customer question this week comes from Niall in Kendal, who would like to know what he needs to cut one of our kitchen worktops.
“I am interested in having new worktops but I am not sure which size I require yet. Are there any specialist tools required for cutting kitchen worktop to size?”
Thanks for getting in touch – we are pleased that you are interested in purchasing your new kitchen worktops from us. We are very proud of the work surfaces in our collection as we work hard to ensure we stock the highest quality products – and we sell almost everything you need to fit them into your kitchen too.
You mention that you do not yet know what sizes you need – if possible, you should measure where your worktops will go, and then you can use our online bespoke worktop tool to create the correct size for the space available. You can also specify cut-outs for sinks, hobs and taps, along with extras such as drainage grooves for the perfect worktop for your kitchen space.
If you do need to resize the worktop when you receive it or would simply prefer to make alterations on-site, we recommend purchasing one of our router jigs which acts like a template to provide guidelines for cuts. For this approach, a router cutter is also required, and we sell one for general cutting and a ballnosed version for creating drainage grooves and cut-outs for our hotrod sets.
When cutting kitchen worktop lengths to size, it is best to mark up the area you will be cutting and turn the worktop upside down. Our installation and aftercare guides provide a more detailed rundown of how to get the best out of your worktop.
Please contact us again if there is anything else we can help you with.
All the best,
Stephanie @ Worktop Express
