Getting a custom worktop built and installed is a big decision and will make a huge impact to the room. Whether it’s for a kitchen or a bathroom, you will end up with a high quality and premium worktop.
Naturally, we think custom worktops are the only way to go, but we understand that some people may have misconceptions. Below, we have outlined some of the myths that may or may not come to mind before making your decision about going custom, or off the shelf.
“I will be waiting months for my worktops to arrive”
This isn’t true, whilst all our worktops are bespoke for the customer, that is our sole responsibility. Once the design is agreed and templates are created, manufacture is usually completed within a week. We then install the worktop on a day that suits the client.
So you won’t be waiting as long as you may think. Plus, we always try to work with the customers’ deadlines where possible.
“I won’t be able to afford custom worktops”
Everyone has a different idea of how much they are happy to spend on their kitchen or bathroom worktops, but this is where we can be flexible. We have over 300 different stone options, all with varying price points so don’t let this put you off getting in touch.
“There is a limited choice”
Definitely not, in fact, we have many more stone options than you would find at a highstreet retailer. Over 300 to be precise!
“You will only promote your most expensive stone”
No! We understand that everyone wants something different, this is why we have so many stone options which can be seen in our materials gallery. We will not push you to buy the most expensive, but instead will look at your requirements and talk you through the benefits of the options you prefer.
“You subcontract your work to other tradespeople”
This is a definite no no for us, we do everything in house, so we know exactly who will be installing your worktops and trust their workmanship. This means we have in house stonemasons, workshops on site and all the machines are our own.
“You can’t supply anything other than worktops”
Whilst our main focus is on designing, manufacturing and installing bespoke worktops for our clients’ kitchens and bathrooms, we are proud to be an approved agent for The 1810 Company which enables us to sell to our clients the great quality sinks and taps they provide, fully backed with the 1810 Company warranty. Check them out here.
As well as worktops, we can also create custom upstands and splashbacks to work beautifully alongside your worktops.
“You won’t work with my kitchen fitter”
We will happily work with your kitchen fitter allowing them to install your custom worktop. You will still go through the same design process, but will supply them with your worktop rather than using our dedicated install team.
We have great relationships with many local fitters, so get in touch if you would like some recommendations.
“It’s more risky choosing you over a larger highstreet retailer”
We like to think we are small but mighty! Due to the nature of our business, we are very focussed on our customer service, and the end result being nothing but perfect. We can prove this with the 100% score we have received on Checkatrade across nearly 200 reviews! See all our recommendations here.
