Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need for the worktop template?
When we come to your home to measure up and create a template for your worktop, there are a few things we need to ensure we can complete it:
- Ensure your kitchen base units are all fixed into place
- Your sink and hob need to be available for us to see and check their size
- We will have questions for you, so someone who can make decisions needs to be home
How long after the worktop template is completed, will the installation be?
Once we’ve created the template, we’ll send it off to the manufacturer who will make your worktop. It will be ready to install in 1-2 weeks.
Do you remove our existing worktop?
Unless we are changing a worktop that we originally installed, then, unfortunately, we cannot remove your old worktop. Old worktops must be removed before we visit your home to create the template.
Do you fit my sink and hob?
No. We do need to see the sink and hob when we template and install your new worktop. However, as we’re not electricians or gas engineers, we cannot install them for you.
Will I see a join in my worktop?
Yes, there will be visible joins in your worktop. However, using the latest technology, we’re able to keep joins to a very fine width and use colour matched glue to ensure they are as inconspicuous as possible. The visibility of the join will also depend on the colour and pattern of the worktop you choose. Joins are least visible on solid colours. Whereas, on a veined slab, the join will be more noticeable as the veins won’t join across the two pieces of worktop.
What’s the difference between Dekton (sintered stone). Silestone (quartz). Sensa (granite) and Natural Stone worktops?
Dekton is surface printed, which means the pattern is only printed on the top side of your worktop and not on the edges. The edges will be a solid colour.
Quartz is full-bodied, which means the pattern runs throughout the depth of the worktop. So, you’ll see the design on both the top surface and edges of your worktop.
Sensa is naturally sourced so no two slabs are the same and is very low maintenance.
Natural Stone is a mix of marbles, granites, limestones and travertines and can be adapted to whichever finish you require.
Why are different colour worktops different prices?
The prices simply reflect the mix of materials and the technology that goes into making each colour and pattern. Some are more complex than others and therefore cost more to make.
Do Cosentino by SEH Interiors worktops chip?
The simple answer is, no, they don’t chip. However, as with all worktops, the materials are not indestructible. If, for example, you were to drop a heavy pan from a height onto it, then it may chip. But for everyday use, it’s very tough.
Do you cover my area as I see you’re in Leeds?
Yes. We have a network of suppliers and fitters that cover the whole of the UK.
