Kitchen Worktops

Our ranges Milano and Ligna can be used as worktops in your kitchen. In this kitchen we’ve used the luxurious marble effect finish of Carrara Marble and Mayfield Oak. Using our range of worktops can provide a significant cost saving - and with the wide range of finishes you won’t need to compromise on the overall look.

Feature Wall

Wall panelling has always been considered a traditional feature, often seen in grand Victorian homes.  With our products you can modernise the look by creating a geometrical design in any of our painted colours.
