AG Worktop Exchange

Why exchange your worktops?

Worktops are the crowning glory to any kitchen, but they are subjected to some pretty hard use. Tired laminate or rotten wood can be the most harmful to the overall aesthetics of the kitchen; damaging opportunities for renting or selling or just for our own pride in our own home. Changing the worktops can give a tired kitchen a completely new lease of life for another 20+ years.

We have had a Frequently Asked Questions article about replacing your worktops with solid stone (granite or quartz) for years but it is only at the close of 2023 that we have started to offer an all-inclusive package to help customers with the complexities and pitfalls of an exchange. We also have an article explaining why installing real, solid stone is so much better than the so-called “granite transformation” which overlays existing laminate worktops with a layer of plastic-based material.

There are lots of reasons why customers may want to change their worktops but here are some from our customers;

  • The existing worktops are tatty or have burn marks.
  • The customers have just moved property and the kitchen is not to their taste. They are going to paint the doors of the kitchen but want a new bright fresh worktop to go with that.
  • They want to change the existing sink to an undermounted or Belfast style sink.
  • The wooden surround to the existing Belfast sink hasn’t been maintained and is starting to rot.
  • The kitchen has dark black worktops and it is making the room seem dark
  • They want to change the hob to a larger one.
  • The kitchen needs an upgrade but they don’t want to do a total replacement of the units , due to expense/ upheaval/ better for the environment.
