The wonderful world of worktops

Top quality replacement worktops and

DIY kitchen units from DIY Homefit

In our last article we looked at various ways to update your kitchen without breaking the bank. One of the aspects we mentioned was replacing your kitchen worktops. In this article we are going to find out a bit more about how to do this and what kind of options are available.

In fact when planning a new kitchen, worktops can often be something of an afterthought. Many people focus on the overall layout and the kind of fitted or DIY kitchen units that they want. But when you think about it, it is the worktops that add the finishing touch to a kitchen. If they are not exactly right, they could spoil the whole look of your kitchen.


At DIY Homefit we have some fabulous ranges of kitchen worktops. Our three main ranges are:




Formica’s range provides a wide choice of worktops, breakfast bars, splashbacks and upstands. The extent of the range gives you the freedom to  enable you to add your personalised finishing touch to your kitchen. This range of worktops features the exclusive “Q3” profile, which gives the product a squarer shape. Its crisp 3mm radii top and bottom particular enhances the stone and woodgrain designs, giving them an authentic slab-cut look.




This is the perfect range to transform your kitchen with chic lifestyle concepts. It includes both high tech and more natural looks. Not only are the designs inspirational but also this is a very high performance range that includes a broad choice of textures and designs for worktops, breakfast bars, upstands and splashbacks.




The Axiom range includes some unique choices of colours, textures and materials that could be just what you’ve been looking for for your worktops, breakfast bars, upstands and splashbacks.
