Worktop Template Creation

To ensure your new worktops fit flawlessly, we follow a careful templating process. 

Physical Templates: We use a combination of both digital and physical templates, to let you visualise the size and shape of your worktops in the actual kitchen space.

Customisation is Key: The templating stage is your chance to make adjustments. Sometimes kitchen installation plans change, so flexibility is important. 

Pattern Matching: With stone’s natural beauty, we carefully match patters across joins. (Please keep in mind, a completely invisible join isn’t always possible with natural stone). 

Important Information We Need: 

  • Accurate Site Address to allow us to plan for travel
  • Delayed Installations – please let us know ASAP if your kitchen installation is behind schedule so we can rearrange our work.

Preparing for Template Day

For the most accurate templates, please ensure: 

  • Units in Place: All cabinets must be level, secured, and in their final positions. 
  • Sinks: Undermount or Belfast/Butler sinks should be installed with slight flexibility (2-3mm movement). Provide the sink template and note any desired overhang changes.
  • Hobs: Have the hob and manufacturer’s cut-out instructions on hand. Hob position (front/back and left/right) should be decided. 
  • Range Cookers: These should be installed and square with units, allowing the standard clearance (usually 5mm) for service access. 
  • Other Appliances: Information on pop-up sockets, waste bins etc helps streamline the process
  • On-Site Sign-Off: Someone with authority should be present to check templates and sign paperwork. 

Alternatively, we’re happy to work with templates provided by your builder. Your quote will be adjusted accordingly.
