            Moving to recycled materials

            The laminate worktops in our collection are made using chipboard with a recycled content of more than 90%. So, you can make a more sustainable choice for your home.

            To determine what colour worktop is best for your design, consider the look you want to achieve. White has a bright appearance and timeless appeal, whereas oak is great for adding warmth to a cooler palette. For a trend-led style that also makes imperfections less visible, black is a savvy option, while grey is a modern neutral that blends with many decors. Our designers recommend matching your counter tone with your floor for a coordinated effect.
