Kitchen units may come in standard sizes but kitchens certainly don’t! Particularly in older properties, the shape and size of the kitchen may vary enormously from one home to the next. Bespoke kitchen wortktops allow you to make the most of your kitchen space, whether you’re dealing with a narrow galley kitchen or have space to spread out.
Create unusual shapes
At Surrey Marble and Granite, we can create high-quality stone worktops in any size or shape, giving you more flexibility and choice. This is ideal for making the most of awkward corners and creating a kitchen that is both practical and beautiful. We can also coordinate the colour and finish of the stone to suit existing features, such as a stone or hardwood floor or a period fireplace.
Work space is at a premium in many kitchens – imagine if you could change the shape of your counters, adding an extra couple inches here and there, perhaps adding a rounded overhang to the end of a counter, giving you an extra foot of space, or creating a raised shelf in matching stone to display your favourite kitchenware. With bespoke kitchen worktops, all this and more is possible.
Kitchen islands are often rectangular with sharp corners – not because this is the best shape for the space but simply because that’s the standard cut. Adding a bespoke worktop to your kitchen island gives you the opportunity to create a shape which works for your kitchen. It could be as simple as rounding the corners to save yourself a sharp knock or you could create a bold centrepiece. Round islands often make the kitchen easier to navigate and use, while also having visual appeal.
A popular option is to combine a kitchen island with a breakfast bar, giving you somewhere to pull up a stool and enjoy a coffee or sit to prepare food. Custom-made stone worktops can support their own weight, allowing you to create an overhang on your kitchen island or worktop to use as a comfortable and informal eating area.
Made for your kitchen
Commissioning custom kitchen worktops allows you to choose every detail of the design, from the material through measurements and fitting to the finish and edging. Selecting your stone is a key step in the process as different stones have different properties. Granite is a popular and very durable option, while the classic elegance of marble is unsurpassed. Treated or manufactured stones like Ceasarstone and Silestone offer a long-lasting and durable finish in a wide range of colours.
