Upstands ​

Upstands are an extension of your stone kitchen worktop that goes a short way up the wall behind the worktop. While these can be made to any height, they are generally around 100mm high.

They can be finished off with a simple square edge, or shaped with a moulded edge to fit your kitchen style.

Bespoke kitchen worktops Splashbacks


Splashbacks are a large slab of stone that goes up the wall, usually found behind a hob. These can be shaped to fit an extractor fan unit, or to go around any cupboards.

Stone splashbacks are easy to clean, so you no longer have to worry about greasy tiles in your kitchen.

Drainage flutes

These are also known as drainage grooves and are a popular feature for stone kitchen worktops around the sink. These are grooves in your custom stone worktop that prevent water from spreading along the rest of the stone worktop surface.

The position, length and pattern of the drainage flutes can be customised to your requirements.

Speak to our friendly team to learn more about the benefits of having drainage flutes in your bespoke stone kitchen worktop by calling 01929 550653.

Finishes to your bespoke kitchen worktops

There are a few different finishes that you can have on your bespoke kitchen worktop.

Polished – Adds a high gloss finish making it a highly reflective surface. This creates a luxurious look for your kitchen.

Honed – Is a smooth matt finish that has a touch of a low gloss sheen. It is a more subtle look than a polished finish but can be just as elegant.

Antique – A subtle coarse texture to finish off your stone kitchen worktop. The edges will be honed so that they complement the worktop perfectly.

Satinato – A middle ground between the three finishes above. It creates a textured satin finish with a leathery feel.

Sink cut outs

Bespoke kitchen worktops can also have a cut out for a sink to be placed among the stone worktop. The hole will be the exact shape and size required to fit your sink in. Usually, they are undermounted sinks, so that the sink will sit underneath the worktop meaning that they are finished with a small overhang.

This creates a seamless look and feel to your kitchen and helps to keep water within the sink and surrounding areas.
