Wilsonart’s Zenith Easy to Install for All
When Dean Carey from the West Midlands decided to upgrade his family kitchen he wanted to tackle the project himself. Like a growing number of consumers inspired by websites, TV shows and how-to-do-it clips online, Dean who un-phased by a large life-changing project, wanted to improve his lifestyle and add value to his home. He purchased the kitchen and appliances from a specialist kitchen retailer who offered support and guidance throughout the fit. The worktops chosen were Zenith from Wilsonart UK the first super slim laminate surface to market in the UK.
Ruby Lavin, marketing communications manager from Wilsonart UK, the world’s largest manufacturer of laminate surfaces explains. “A great kitchen with storage and a social space is a must have for most homeowners now. With the development of products and online know how so readily available consumers are working in partnership with specialists to create stunning family kitchen spaces. According to RICS (Royal Institute of Charted Surveyors), a new kitchen can add a tangible value of up to 4% to its sale price. So, installing a new kitchen or upgrading an existing one makes perfect financial sense.”
Zenith, Wilsonart’s super slim solid core laminate worksurface was developed and launched to provide a worktop product that is both easy to install and flexible in its uses.
Dean’s 8m x 4m kitchen diner took 5 months to complete. “Three months in planning’ says Dean. “Zenith is fantastic looking, hard wearing and waterproof – I managed to cut it myself.”
