Finding accessories to complement and highlight the beauty of your solid wood worktops is important when choosing new work surfaces. Our wooden worktop upstands are a stylish option for any home, hiding the join between walls and worktops. We have wooden upstands available in any of the timber species used to create our worktops for a sleek, sophisticated look throughout any kitchen.
Wooden worktop upstands have a number of benefits, one of which being that they can be used to effectively conceal any expansion gap between the wall and work surface. This is a 3-4mm gap that we advise all of our customers to leave behind their solid wood worktops to allow for the natural expansion and contraction of the natural material. Using a wooden upstand to cover the gap between the wall and work surface also prevents moisture from forming behind the kitchen top.
Installing solid wood upstands is relatively easy and can be done with basic DIY equipment. Cutting to size will require nothing more than a basic hand saw and the upstand can be affixed to the wall using a waterproof silicone. If you are fitting your own upstands, you can read more about wooden worktop upstand installation in our handy guide.
We are sure you will agree that our wooden worktop upstands are a stylish choice for any kitchen. They can be used as a hygienic alternative to tiles, or they can be used in conjunction with them, to ensure the benefits as described above are reaped.
