Custom Kitchen Countertops

Chop on it. Knead on it. Serve from it. Everyday you ask a lot from your custom kitchen countertops. We offer a variety of surface options and literally hundreds of colour, pattern and texture choices.

Although no single material is best for all purposes, each has a distinctive look and specific advantages.

Regardless of which custom kitchen countertop is chosen, we highly recommend the use of a hot pad or trivet to protect the surface from damage or thermal shock cracks from hot pans. It is not recommended to place a tray directly from the stove top or oven directly onto the surface.
