Can I fit laminate worktops in your solid wood kitchens? Question of the Week 08.01.17
“Can I fit laminate worktops in your solid wood kitchens?”
This week’s question comes from Kaleem and his wife in Cardiff. They’d like to know more about mixing materials in the new kitchen they’re planning.
“My wife and I are redesigning our kitchen – I’d love to have 100% solid wood but she has fallen in love with a black, sparkly laminate work surface. Is it possible to fit laminate worktops in your solid wood kitchens?”
Thank you for taking the time to send in your query. It sounds like you’ve come to the perfect compromise!
Fitting laminate worktops in solid wood kitchens is simple and should be as straightforward as installing a solid wood alternative. Cutting laminates down to size is easy – thanks to their chipboard core – and you can use the same tools that you would to fit a wooden work surface. Moreover, one of the benefits of ordering a laminate worktop is that it will arrive ready to fit, which is slightly different to a wooden worktop (as this may require oiling or treating to provide adequate protection for the timber).
