Top Frequently Asked Questions
Which type of worktop is right for me?
Corian is a low maintenance yet stylish option for your kitchen; they are durable, non-porous and hygienic, ideal for families with busy lifestyles, especially those with children.
Quartz surfaces offer the beauty of natural marbles and granites with the consistency and performance of engineered stone. Ideal for the style conscious, quartz comes in a range of styles and colours. Quartz is also easily maintained in comparison to 100% natural stone products.
