“What wide worktops do you sell for kitchen islands?” Question of the Week 25.03.17
“What wide worktops do you sell for kitchen islands?”
In our latest ‘Question of the Week’, Joshua from Chepstow asked for more information about our range of wide kitchen worktops.
“I’m looking at wide worktops for a kitchen island – what is the widest you do and what are my options?”
Thanks for sending in your query. We’re glad to say that – if you are looking for a wide kitchen island worktop – you’ve definitely come to the right place! You haven’t stipulated whether you would prefer a laminate or solid wood kitchen worktop, so I will happily provide information on both options in our range.
In our range of solid wood worktops, Oak and Prime Oak surfaces are available in widths up to 1240mm wide, which can be used to create a truly expansive kitchen island. Other hardwoods in our collection are available in widths up to 960mm wide, though we can also create bespoke extra-wide worktops as part of our bespoke worktop service.
We can also add radius corners, smooth edge profiles and other customisations to ensure your new island worktop is ready to install immediately after delivery.
If you are looking at laminate worktops, each decor in our range is available in a 900mm width, and will be provided with both long edges finished; this means that only the shorter ends need the addition of the included worktop edging strip to create a surface that’s ideal for breakfast bars and kitchen islands. If you would prefer, the application of edging strip can be undertaken by our fabrication team before your worktop is delivered. You can find out more about this and the other services available on our laminate worktop cutting service page.
We have a number of information guides that may help you to choose wide worktops for your new kitchen. If considering solid wood worktops, start by reading the following guide: ‘Using Extra-Wide Wooden Countertops for Kitchen Islands.
For more details about using laminate worktops, we recommend reading our ‘Choosing Laminate Countertops for Kitchen Islands’ information guide.
If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us once again.
