Kitchen Worktops provide the ideal place to put our drinks and party food when we have gatherings at home and they also provide the perfect place to keep all of those appliances, from our water filter jugs to our toasters and more. They’re also just as at-home in our utility rooms, over our washing machines and tumble dryers. If we’re really organised, a matching worktop in these two rooms can be a sensational addition and can allow the two rooms to really complement each other.
BATHROOMS & SHOWER ROOMS
