We’ve scoured the world searching for the very best colours, materials and finishes, to bring you a collection of worksurfaces that complement our 1909 kitchens perfectly.

In this Journal post we’ll be introducing our vast worksurface collection, from dramatic blacks, to pure whites and warming oaks. No matter your kitchen style, we’ll provide the inspiration you need to pick the perfect worksurface for you.

 

 

Why is your worksurface so important?

Whatever style of kitchen you choose, your worksurfaces have a huge influence on the overall look and feel of your finished design.

Worksurfaces frame the kitchen furniture and can be used to complement or contrast with your chosen cabinets, appliances and flooring.

As well as adding that all-important wow factor, they should also be hard wearing and practical, so it’s important to choose a material that offers the benefits you need, such as heat resistance or scratch resistance.

Introducing 1909 worksurfaces

From granite and timber worktops, to manmade composites, we have a wide selection of materials, available in a range of finishes to perfectly complement any style.
