Slate Worktops, Kitchen Work Surfaces and Sink Surrounds
Brazilian slate has various technical properties which make it ideally suited for slate worktops and kitchen work surfaces, with porosity rating of 99.5% non porous, staining and discolouring will no longer be a problem, unlike wood and marble tops where maintenance can be high The fine grain and natural makeup of the slate allows large kitchen island tops to be made without the need for surface polishing. so a natural tactile finish can be achieved but still be practical.
Kitchen work surfaces and worktops in slate with provision for 'inset hobs', 'Belfast' or undermount sinks as well as other appliances and facilities can be cut to 'template' or drawing in either black or blue/grey slate. Absolutely perfect for 'wet' environments, provision can be made for inset, or freestanding, hand basins and appliances in the bathroom or cloakroom. Please visit our kitchen slate gallery, worktops photo gallery or our commercial slate worktops gallery, to view examples of the many slate worktops, from simple barbecue tops to complex commercial slate bar installations, that we have fabricated. Different material thicknesses are available, as standard, to suit your application, whilst much thicker product can be simulated by the addition of an edging strip.
We provide a full cutting and finishing service to satisfy the specifications for your custom made slate worktop. The surface of the slate can be aged, edges can be machined to any of the profiles shown on our bespoke page and draining grooves can be cut to provide water ‘run off’.Whenever possible we will endeavour to cut a surface from a single slab but where 'jointing' is unavoidable our technicians will select slabs that provide as close a 'match' as achievable
