Häfele has launched its new Bespoke Worktop Service to help customers achieve precise, entirely customisable designs while also saving time during the installation process.

Perfect for kitchen, bathroom or utility room projects, users simply select their choice of solid surface worktop from Häfele’s Maia and Minerva ranges, and the products will be manufactured to specification using high-quality craftsmanship, using advanced cutting tools and technologies to ensure precision and accuracy, eliminating gaps or unevenness when fitted.

Both worktops have been awarded a FIRA gold award for product excellence, meaning they have been rigorously assessed for performance and installation. Maia worksurfaces are available in 15 standard colourways and are resistant to staining and heat. Likewise, Minerva worktops are also stain and heat-resistant and are available in a broader range of 19 standard colourways and are manufactured to a full 25mm thickness with a square edge.

The Bespoke Worktop Service offers complete customisation, including different shapes, sizes and finishes, to create pieces that blend perfectly with the desired design. Once cut and packaged, the bespoke worktops are delivered direct-to-site within 14 working days. The service has been developed to save customers valuable time in the installation process, meaning they can complete projects more efficiently. And because of the high-quality materials and tools used, customers can be sure of a perfect and durable finish.

“Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom or utility room, worktops are so integral to homes across the UK that we often underappreciate their importance,” comments Jashdip Kaur, product manager for worktops, splashbacks and surfaces at Häfele UK.

“However, an expertly designed, cut and installed worktop has the potential to elevate something we usually take for granted to something impressive – both in terms of functionality and style.

“For the last 100 years, we’ve been thinking of ways to make our customers’ lives easier, providing services that shake up the more traditional ways of working. We’ve worked closely with them to understand their pain points when it comes to worktops and has developed this service around their feedback – which is centred on accuracy, quality and efficiency.

“By cutting worktops to exact measurements for customers prior to delivery, we can take on the burden of ensuring the products fit perfectly with a customer’s space. This saves joiners and installers huge amounts of time, which they can spend on the other aspects of their project.

“The range of tones, hues and finishes available across the Maia and Minerva ranges means there’s a design to suit every type of aesthetic – with everything from fresh and bright to monotone on offer – while our 14 working day lead time and to-site delivery means customers can utilise this service as and when it suits them, based on the timelines of their project.”
