    • Worktop Colour Required With some of these material for example corian worktops the core material is price
      banded based on the colour. This means that some colours are more expensive than others. As a rule of thumb the colours with the
      bigger particles in will be more expensive than the solid colours. A list of colours for each product is outlined below.

    • Worktop Dimensions

      • Overall Thickness of Worktops Required most standard kitchen worktops are 30mm or 40mm
        however when using a fabricator you can choose whatever thickness of worktop you require. This can be put to great effect
        when creating kitchen islands where the thickness of the worktop can be shown to full effect.

        of worktop you require including any pertinent information such as islands, radiuses and curves.

          to a full height wall cladding. As shown in the picture below coved upstands sweep up from the
          worktop to the wall seamlessly. This is the more expensive of the two options due to the additional
          labour involved.

    • Corian Sink / Staron Sinks
      Corian Sinks and Staron Sinks are made from Corian and Staron respectively and can be seamlessly joined
      into your worktop. Including the size of your sink base unit helps us to advise
      you on your sink selection

  6. Drainer Grooves

    • Straight Flutes
      As the name suggests straight flute drainer grooves are straight lines which become deeper when moving towards the sink.
      As Corian, Staron and Tempest are completely non-porous these can be cut directly into the worksurface and then polished.
      Due to the drainer grooves becoming deeper as they move towards the sink water naturally drains back into the sink.

      Straight Drainer Grooves
    • Patterned Drainer Grooves
      If your tastes are a little more individual we can create just about any simple pattern for your drainer grooves. It is however
      worth noting that this will incur an additional cost and can result in no fall drainers. Principally this means that water may not
      drain back into your sink.

      Oblique Drainer
      Leaf Drainer
      Faceted Drainer
      Curved Drainer
      Angled Drainer
    • Recessed Drainer
      For a small additional cost it is possible to recess the entire draining area by 3mm.

  7. Hob Cut Out
    If you require a hob cutout to be made into your worktop please specify. Once your worktop order has been completed we will require make and
    model number of your hob in order to ensure the correct size of cutout is made. For the purposes of the quote however we will only need to know
    whether a hob cut out is required.

  8. Optional Extras and Additions

    • Support Rails
      Where the worktop spans a distance greater than one metre and is unsupported steel support rails will be required.
      This will add an additional cost to your worktop based on the length and amount of steel support required. This method
      of supporting your Corian Worktops and Staron Worktops can be used to create beautiful and extensive ovehangs and breakfast bars.
