Galley Kitchen, Rickmansworth


This stunning and practical kitchen in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire shows why you don’t have to compromise on quality and style in a smaller space.

The homeowners commissioned Prima Marble & Granite and Benchmarx kitchens to create a contemporary, hard wearing kitchen in a space that measures just 4 x 2.5m. Prima Marble & Granite suggested that the focal point of the space should be an unbroken run of kitchen worktops and recommended the use of Lapitec, a unique full bodied stone material.


They sourced a warm white Lapitec, Bianco Crema, in a Satin finish from UK exclusive distributor The Marble & Granite Centre Ltd. “Hard wearing, long lasting surfaces, such as Lapitec, are a great idea in smaller spaces where each centimetre of worktop really counts” commented Rob Jay or Prima. “The use of contemporary plain colours; light reflective properties of Lapitec’s Lux finish, and the seamless worktop run all help create a feeling of space and give the kitchen a top end look and feel.”

“Lapitec is extremely versatile”, added The Marble & Granite Centre Managing Director, Stephen Pike. “It can help elevate an off the shelf kitchen from good to great – with no concerns about maintenance, scratching, scorching or staining.”
