Magic corner baskets
From laminate and wood to granite MBK can supply work surfaces made from many different materials and sources. High pressure 40mm laminate worktops are still popular worktops especially with the great range of designs available. Timber worktops still have their place in the kitchen but you have to be aware that timber is porous and can be damaged quite easily. However Granite and Quartz tops have dropped dramatically in price, owing to the greater availability worldwide, resulting in an increase in the number of clients choosing this type of surface. Also with the increase in awareness in Eco friendly products there are now ranges of Eco-friendly quartz’s produced by Silestone. MBK display laminate, quartz, granite, eco-friendly Silestone worktops and samples of acrylic based products including Corian, Encore and Minerva. The different work surfaces enable more inventive kitchen design with each product having its own merits and restrictions.
Granites from all over the world all available templated, supplied and installed by specialist contractors where required. MBK have displays and samples available for our clients. Our granite fabricators have very large stocks of granite, ensuring continuity of colour, and are very competitive; all the solid surfaces are treated with Stain-Proof Original by DryTreat, the only sealer with a 15 year warranty, a warranty not offered by many other companies. We are can be found on Granite Worktops Locally .
With our appointment as Dry-Treat stockists and applicators we now offer a 15 year Warranty against staining on all our natural stone products once treated, unlike many of our competitors. Before you accept quotes from other granite suppliers ask if they can match that warranty.. Be aware that granite is a natural product and as such varies in colour and look.
Quartz solid surfaces are available in many colours and compositions templated, supplied and installed by
specialist contractors. MBK has an Eco friendly Silestone and the Nobel Carrara quartz worktop. Quartz is often available in different thicknesses, from 20mm to 40mm. We treat all our quartz solid surfaces with Stain-Proof Original by DryTreat the only sealer with a 15 year warranty. Quartz tops are consistent in colour and are favoured when you require light colours.
Acrylic based worktops such as Corian , Minerva and Encore are the seamless solid work surface and will provide a truly wonderful tactile top, however you must be aware that due to the manufacturing process they do scratch quite easily, although this can be buffed out.
Our clients have chosen these types of tops for the design benefits in a kitchen.
Timber worktops are still used as working areas and display areas, Available in many different timbers they need to be sanded and oiled on installation up to 4 coats of oil. They will then require continual up keeping to ensure they remain waterproof, sanding and oiling them regularly. Some clients will leave the worktops so they wear and have a used look. Its a choice of how you want your kitchen to look after all it is Your kitchen.
Laminate worktops will never go out of fashion. A good laminate worktop if looked after will last many years and still look really good. The main companies producing worktops are Formica, Bushboard, Duropal
Prima, Axion, Omega, Artis and Oddessy are ranges from these fabricators and cover all possible finishes from high gloss tops to imitation timer and granite finishes.
