Innovative kitchen worktops

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we specialise in bespoke stone kitchen worktops. Our stoneworkers are professionals with many years experience, which allows us to offer innovative stone kitchen worktops that can make your kitchen easier to use and also provide a focal point for your interior design. We can make marble and granite worktops in almost any shape you can imagine, and we can advise on the best stone for your project. Contact us for a free consultation.

Overhang worktops

Stone is a very strong material, and can easily support its own weight. This makes it ideal for creating worktops with an overhang. Overhangs are often used to create dining space. A common example is a granite worktop built as an island or a peninsual with an overhang on one side which is used as a breakfast bar. This provides extra worktop space while cooking and makes the breakfast area visually part of the kitchen.

Decorative shelves

Coordinate your kitchen design by making shelving from the same materials as your worktops. Cut to fit, bespoke stone shelves can help you make the most of any nook or cranny. Triangular or wedge shaped shelves to fit an awkward corner are popular. If you’re matching your shelves to your marble worktops, they become elegant statement pieces, ideal for showing off your best china or glassware. Stone shelves are easy to clean and don’t need liners.

Worktops with unusual shapes

Most stone kitchen worktops are square or rectangular, with sharply cornered ends, but there is no strong reason why this should be so. Rounding off the ends of a kitchen worktop can help create a smoother flow in the room, removing awkward corners without significantly reducing worktop space. Rounded ends also offer an ideal way to extend kitchen worktops beyond the width of the cabinets, using every inch of space. Overhang shelves are popular, and can be matched with other stone shelves above or below the worktop, giving you attractive additional storage space.

Stone kitchen islands

In many UK kitchens, worktop space is at a premium. The kitchen island, a work and storage space away from the walls, can add the extra kitchen worktop space you need. Using stone for your island worktop allows you to create the best shape for your kitchen. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we can create a stone kitchen worktop in almost any shape you can imagine. For example, we could create a wedge-shaped marble worktop to make the most of a small or a large, curving granite worktop to provide a visual break between an open plan kitchen and dining room.

Bespoke stone sinks surrounds

Any sink will require a custom cut hole in a stone worktop, so it’s important to consider how you’ll use it. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we can position a sink towards the front or back of a stone worktop, providing you with an easier work space. We can also create a built-in drying space, reducing the need for unsightly dish drying racks.
