How to design your own kitchen worktop

There are thousands of tiny tweaks that turn a house into a home. Now, thanks to our custom-made stone worktops, you can design your own kitchen surfaces, changing a sharp corner for a round one here and widening a breakfast bar there to create the perfect space for your family.

The first step: assessing your needs

We do our best in our show room to display the full range of options for stone kitchen worktops, but we know that our workshop doesn’t match the dimensions of a typical British kitchen. As expert stone workers, we’re proud to size and fit our stone worktops to match the actual needs of real family homes. We can offer advice on how to take advantage of small or awkward spaces, as well as giving you clear estimates so you can make the most of your budget.

The right shape for your space

You’ll already know whether the kitchen you have works well or not. If it does, we can offer advice on how to make minor tweaks to remove annoyances or get the look you’ve always dreamed of. For kitchens that are a daily frustration, a more radical overhaul is called for. Don’t limit yourself to conventional sizes and shapes – one of the advantages of dealing with stone workers, rather than a sales team is that we can create unusual shapes and non-standard sizes at your command.

As an example, many British kitchens are small and awkwardly shaped. Long, thin galley kitchens may benefit from narrower worktops on one or both sides, while small square kitchens may benefit from bespoke corner units with matching kitchen worktops, turning a sunny corner from wasted space into your favourite cooking preparation spot. We can work independently, creating stone shelves, creative splash backs and stone worktops or coordinate our efforts with other kitchen professionals to give you the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of.

Marble, granite or something else?

One of the key decisions that will affect the shapes and styles available to you, as well as influencing the cost of your project is whether you use natural or processed stone.

Natural stones, such as limestone, granite and marble, are quarried from the earth in large blocks, which then have to be cut down to the right shape and size. This means that there are limitations and surprising costs. As an example, the thinnest marble kitchen worktops may be more expensive as they can be harder to cut and shape without fracturing.

Engineered or processed stones are typically quartz based. They include well known brands like Silestone, Arena stone and Compaq. Despite their name, they are typically 95-97% natural stone. However, engineered stone is made from stone chips, which are blended in appropriate proportions and bonded together with adhesives and dye. This is what gives quartz kitchen worktops their remarkable colour, and also means that many different weights and styles are available.
