“Where can I buy an extra-long worktop?” Question of the Week 23.04.16
“Where can I buy an extra-long worktop?”
Today’s ‘Question of the Week’ was sent in by Lisa in Chippenham. Lisa is looking for an extra-long wooden worktop to create an island for her spacious kitchen, and wanted to know if we could help.
“I’m lucky enough to have a really large kitchen and want to make a kitchen island that runs right down the middle and into the adjoining dining area. Can you tell me if you sell extra-long wooden worktops that might be suitable?”
We’re excited to hear of your grand plans for a new kitchen island, and are glad to say that you have definitely come to the right people if you are looking for an extra-long solid wood worktop.
Our ‘off-the-shelf’ worktops are currently available in a maximum length of 4000mm and 720mm wide, or 3000mm in length and 960mm wide (or 1240mm wide in oak and Prime Oak timbers)- all of which are supplied in 40mm thicknesses.
Thanks to our highly-skilled in-house bespoke worktop cutting service team and direct links with a number of European timber suppliers, we are able to provide longer surfaces than those listed above on request.
We can create wooden worktops up to 6000mm in length, 1500mm wide and 60mm thick, though extra-large worktops of these dimensions may be very heavy, meaning that are number of people will be needed to help unload the goods at the point of delivery.
Because of the limitations of natural timbers, our large worktops are not available in all of the wood species in our collection. Our ‘larger’ selection includes: oak worktops, Prime Oak worktops, beech worktops, Prime Beech worktops, iroko worktops, walnut worktops, black American walnut worktops, wenge worktops, zebrano worktops, cherry worktops and maple worktops.
To order an extra-large worktop, we ask that you contact us directly to discuss your requirements. Once you have confirmed the size of your desired worktop, one of our fabrication team will call or email you to check the specifications.
Don’t forget that even with worktops that are manufactured to order, we can still offer a wide range of wood worktop fabrications including irregular cuts, edge profiles and many other customisations.
If you would like to find out more about the bespoke services we offer, a wide range of information guides are available to peruse on our website: our ‘Creating Bespoke Hardwood Worktops for Kitchen Islands’ article might be of particular interest to you.
