Choosing the right kitchen worktop is an essential part of creating your dream kitchen. Your countertop must match your cabinets perfectly, as well as the shape and decor of your room. At Toolstation, we’re here to make this decision as easy as possible.
There is a wide variety of kitchen worktop
styles to choose from. For a striking option that contrasts your light-coloured units, consider a smart gloss black finish. If you prefer a more natural look, you’ll find kitchen countertops in a range of wood, marble or stone-effect finishes.
A kitchen upstand
is designed to match your worktop, and is usually around 100 mm in height. Fitted to the rear wall at the back of your countertop, the upstand serves a practical purpose as well as an aesthetic one. It can help to cover any gaps between a straight worktop and uneven wall, and also acts as additional splashback protection for your wall.
