Upstands are fitted at the back of the worktop along the wall to form a neat border and can be any height from 50mm up to 100mm or more. They help contain liquids spills and aesthetically finish the worktops with a crisp clean line.

If you are thinking of replacing your laminate or wood worktops and want to keep the existing wall tiles, upstands are also essential. They cover the 10mm gap left by the old worktops, which are usually 40mm in depth.

Granite and quartz worktops are available in 30mm, 20mm and 13mm thicknesses with 30mm being the standard, although 20mm is gaining in popularity.

Enhance your granite or quartz worktops further with these features below.

Book a Design Consultation

Great, let's get started.

The Design Consultation takes place at our showroom in Knutsford. It works like this:

  1. You bring in a sample of your cabinet door & kitchen plan
  2. We look at various design/colour combinations
  3. We then finalise worktop options & provide a quote

This all takes about an hour. We take it from there to get you an ideal worktop at a great price.
