Rearo aims to clean up in the kitchen
Rearo, one of the UK's leading providers of laminated and solid surface materials to both commercial and domestic markets, has created a new solution for aspirational consumers, planning to revitalise their kitchen but operating on a strict budget.
Surfstone, which is manufactured at Rearo's facility in Glasgow, is the last word in affordable luxury in kitchen worktops. Surfstone has been developed by the company to address the kitchen worktop market which is currently dominated by either very cheap solutions or products whose price point makes them unattainable to the majority of consumers. Rearo believes that its sumptuous yet practical alternative will become a favourite with those who seek a luxurious look but perhaps do not have the necessary funds to pay top end prices.
As well as domestic use, feedback from the commercial sector suggests that Surfstone will have a number of applications in that arena, including in office reception areas and industrial kitchen serveries. With that in mind, Rearo is making trade discounts available on Surfstone to local tradesmen, and is also currently offering free training sessions to educate the trade on the installation of the product - and how to repair it, should it be incorrectly fitted by a homeowner.
Available off the shelf, Surfstone comes in eight colours including Earthstone, Latte Gold, Chalk, Marrakesh (rustic red), Wheat Elegance and Bronte Silver. Kitchen worktops are available as 3000 x 650 x 45mm, while breakfast bars, supplied with one radius edge, are 2000 x 900 x 45mm, with matching upstands and hob splashbacks available.
Surfstone also offers seamless joints, undermount sinks and integrated draining grooves.
Surfstone is now available to view online and can also be purchased from the company's branches in Glasgow, Newport, Gateshead, Rosyth, Inverness and Lerwick.
