Cimstone Sines Quartz Worktops in Horsham, West Sussex

Quartz worktops work well with contemporary-style kitchens which benefit from the clean uniformity of the man-made material. With the current trend to handleless doors, thinner worktops are popular, and with its excellent tensile strength quartz is ideal for this.

This lovely kitchen in Horsham has transformed the home of Mr and Mrs W. We are glad that they chose 20mm Cimstone Sines worktops from Affordable Granite.

They wrote to us after the installation:

“Hi Naomi and Judy, thought you might like to see my finished kitchen!!!! I will send some other views too. I’ve recommended Affordable Granite to lots of friends and I know my neighbours have used you already! We were really pleased with how efficient and punctual your team of workmen were. They have done a wonderful job. Thank you.
– S and C”


Corner Detail

At the heart of the kitchen the Neff hob on the island features this superb lampshade-style extractor hood.

Pop-up socket

To the right of the hob the pop-up socket provides mains power and USB connectivity to the island.

Tambour unit

The tambour unit provides protected storage for cookbooks; its lower shelf is in matching Sines quartz, an unusual feature.

Undermount sink

Utility room

The utility room is a simple L-shape, and has a top-mounted sink. This combination (under-mount in the kitchen; top-mount in the utility) is a common one and reflects the relative strengths of each, aesthetically & practically.
