A hardwood kitchen worktop can transform a classic or country style kitchen. With a suitable wood such as Oak, Beach, Wenge, Iroko or Walnut, a hardwood surface can provide your kitchen with stunning natural beauty, whilst supplementing character and practicality.

For both modern and traditional kitchens, finding a worktop that oozes style can be difficult. With a hardwood worktop you need not compromise on style. With many ranges of classic and contemporary effects to choose from, your kitchen can be set alight with a luxurious natural feel.

Why choose a hardwood worktop?

Not only is a hardwood worktop one of the best ways to achieve a traditional and rustic look, but it is one of the easiest to live with over a long period of time. Many other surfaces lose their aesthetics over time and become dull and un-attractive to the eye. With solid hardwood, your worktop only gets better. Wood gains a natural character over time, in some cases the wood will become deeper and richer in colour and more appealing, becoming a part of your home in a personal way that other worktops and surfaces may not.

A solid wood worktop is always a joy to work with, with the benefit of being a natural material, your wooden worktop can always be altered by a craftsman. With endless design choices, your worktop can be easily transformed with carved designs and stains, whilst can always be sanded back to its original glory.

There are both natural and synthetic kitchen worktop options, each of which have distinctive looks and properties.

A very popular choice for kitchen worktop nowadays is granite and has been since the early nineties. Some people believe however that granite is outdates and common in many homes. This has meant people are looking for an alternative choice.

People who are worried about being eco-friendly are now opting for wooden worktops over granite. They claim that wooden worktops are the most durable and hygienic and maintains it natural beauty for a long period of time.

Granite worktops are preferred however by many people. Due to the fact that they natural and can also withstand very high pressures, temperatures and stain resistant .

The process in templating granite worktops

Basically a template is the pattern of your future granite worktop. An experienced craftsmen will visit your home to measure and template the worktops to basically make the patterns of how your work surfaces will look like. The templates will then be made using hardboard and taken back to the factory in Devon to create the worktops in granite.
  • Granite selection
  • Preparation for templating worktops
  • Templating
  • Cutting the granite worktop
  • Worktop installation


Stone Selection


Due to the fact that granite is a natural stone pattern, colour and graining will vary within the same selection. Ask the granite worktop company to provide you with some general granite samples, for you to see that will give you an idea of how your granite will look, even if not exactly.

Prepare for granite template


Templating Visit - The visit will normally take between 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the kitchen / bathroom.
Exact sizes of sinks, faucets etc are required before templating. Ideally the sink should be on site for the template visit.
The locations of any seams will be discussed.
Location of faucet holes and accessories will be discussed.


Templating

The templater is responsible for making templates accurately.

Kitchen cabinets will be checked for level and structural soundness.
We will cut the templating hardboard to fit the kitchen cabinets, allowing for a proper overhang, seam placement and cutout locations.
The sink base with be traced onto the template.

Cutting the Granite to a template


The granite will be cut and polished. After the process has been completed, then your new granite worktops will be ready for the installation process.

The process of making granite worktops:

  • Template
  • Saw or cut the stone
  • Add an edge profile
  • Drill Holes
  • Add structural reinforcement
  • Stone selection and seams
  • Seal and fill if necessary

High quality equipment is used to cut the stone. Without the aid of this high tech equipment all granite fabrication would have to be done by hand. This process is much more time consuming, much more expensive and not as consistent.


Granite worktop installation


The pre-cut granite kitchen work surfaces will be brought to your home and fixed to your kitchen cabinets using a strong adhesive. The kitchen sink and any other accessories and appliances will be dropped into place to ensure that they fit.
