Welcome to an amazing array of kitchen worktops in all possible materials and from some of the UK's most regarded manufacturers. BBK Direct is happy to help you enhance the functionality and visual quotient of your kitchen. We have undoubtedly put together the largest selection of surfaces in the UK and it is supplied at the lowest prices to the UK public and trade alike.
Laminates are by far the most cost-effective as well as both heat and scratch-resistant. They can be installed by anyone (no special tools are needed) and 100% hygienic – they are non-porous and easy to maintain. They also come in the widest variety of colours/finishes, mimicking nature in colour and texture.
Solid surfaces are extremely durable and come in a close second to quartz and granite in terms of durability. They can be easily installed in your kitchen as no specialist tools are required and you can achieve seamless joints. Stain, impact and heat resistant with a renewable surface are just some of its main attributes. They are what the name implies, solid, no sub-frame or chipboard.
Composite worktops have a high degree of impact resistance, and the joints are seamless. The continuous lines gives your kitchen an elegantly modern style. They can be installed by anyone as no special tools are required.
Wood is a timeless classic, and the preferred choice of many for their kitchen surface. However, a single slab of wood cannot be used, as this is structurally unsound and leads to imperfections cropping up during its usage, such as warping or cracking. To overcome this, multiple pieces of wood are finger jointed together, ensuring a natural surface that will stand the test of a busy home. All our Timber worktops are FSC approved, therefore you can be sure that you are making the correct choice for the environment as well.
Corian is a DuPont brand and also falls under the composite worktop category. Corian stands by their quality with an impressive 25-year manufacturer’s warranty. This product is available as a Templated and Fitted product and all our Corian installations are done by the UK’s top Dupont quality approved and trained fitters. Remember: only Corian installed by Dupont trained fitters will hold the 25 years manufacturer’s warranty.
Granite is one of the hardest materials on earth and an all-time favourite when it comes to kitchen surfaces. It is 100% natural and environmentally-friendly. It also comes with a polished gloss surface and is heat and scratch-resistant. Its impact resistance is second to none. Also available for Template and Fitting.
Quartz worktops are just as good as granite and it’s amazing hardwearing attributes, although it has an added advantage of being available in a much larger array of colours to suit any design style. Quartz worktops consist of between 93% and 96% quartz, and the rest is a blend of polymer resin and colour pigments that help bond the quartz particles together uniformly. This product is also available for Template and Fitting through our quality approved fitting teams.
It is quite a challenge choosing a surface for your units and sometimes really difficult as there are so many manufacturers claiming that their product is the one to choose and quite a few suppliers pushing what is most profitable for them - not always what is best for the customer.
Always start by asking yourself these couple of questions besides the obvious one – What’s my Budget?
Does my surface have to be extremely hard wearing or is it more for the aesthetic appeal? Is my kitchen busy or simple?
Do I want a Traditional style, Modern style or a mix of both?
What type of sink do I want; under-mounted, Over-mounted or Belfast?
Do I always have the time or energy to clean the kitchen?
The questions might sound very simple, but after asking yourself look at your selected surfaces attributes. The logical choice will always stick out, all that will be left is selecting a colour.

Sinks and taps shouldn't be an afterthought when decorating a new kitchen or updating an old one. They must be chosen keeping in mind the available space, overall design of your kitchen and what worktop material you will be using.
BBK Direct UK puts a vast variety of kitchen sink products before you so you can explore various features against your needs and make the right choice.
Firstly For instance, you can look at inset or drop-in sinks that can be dropped right into a cut-out in the worktop. Some of them come with ‘free-drain’ area as part of the sink, which helps keep any runoff where it belongs, in the sink. This sink type is extremely popular with laminate and composite worktops that have an mdf sub frame and are not 100% waterproof.
The second and a very popular option is under-mounted sinks. This is exactly what the name implies, the sink is mounted to the underside of the worktop leaving the inner edge of the worktop sink cut-out visible. This is an option that can be considered when looking at solid and 100% waterproof worktop materials like Granite, Quartz and Solid Surface materials (No mdf sub frame) also if you would like drainer grooves these would have to be cut into the worktop surface, which is appealing but could add a little bit more onto your worktop cost.
The third and a popular option when wanting to achieve a more classic look is a Belfast sink that tends to have front side of the sink exposed. The reasons for installing these sinks are mostly aesthetics but they are also extremely functional, especially in a large family environment –Belfast sinks are usually made of glazed porcelain and truly stand out in a kitchen. We would suggest using this sink type with solid materials the same as with with under-mounted sinks. Drainer groves can be routed into the worktops surface for greater practicality and visual affect.
Our kitchen sinks are available at the best prices you will find online and they are all of the highest quality guaranteed.
The kitchen taps on our site are manufactured by well-known and trusted UK brands. You're assured of quality, reliability and value, as well as a great shopping experience!

Kitchen Units. Probably the most tedious part of designing and styling your kitchen. But it does not have to be. Here at BBK Direct, we have a wide variety of colours, styles and sizes which are all neatly categorised to help you make the best possible choice according to your requirements.
From base units to glass wall units, from angled corner units to appliance housing units. We have a unit for every plan and a solution to every query.
Units are the basis of every kitchen, they are a plan for the future of your cooking space and most definitely set the trend for the rest of your home. They can potentially bring the atmosphere of sophistication, beauty and elegance to your door or perhaps the calm aura and fresh air of the country side or maybe the cool breeze and sandy shores of our gorgeous oceans are more your vibe. The possibilities are endless, therefore the perfect kitchen for you is not a myth and absolutely exists. We just need to find it.
Kitchen Units can be tricky, but once you have a firm idea of what you need and what you want – they are full of potential and ideas just waiting to be unleashed.
Each person would like a different design and would like to take a different approach to creating the most suitable room for their home specified to their unique taste. Have a look at our quick glance tips and ideas to get the ideas flowing below:
Modern design is everything in the present and the near future. It is trends, minimalistic, elegant and sophisticated but could also be hard edged, fierce and bold. The main feature of modern design is simplicity. This can be achieved by handless base units, a continuous flow of long bridging units and either a fair amount of glass or none – there can be no in between when it comes to Modern design. Avoid wood affect units, patterned and textured units and colours out of the black, white and grey section of the colour wheel. Contemporary is bold and fierce while being aesthetically pleasing and ‘just enough’ at the same time. It sounds complicated, but the only words you have to remember are ‘Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.’
This is the total and complete opposite of Modern design. With this sort of kitchen style, you want to stick with colours that you would find in wooded forest or the grassy plains of the country. Think oak, copper, brass and antique gold. Hues that hold character and bring an ageless beauty to your home. With regards to shape and size, bulk is the way to go. Classic round knobs for handles with panels carved into the wood of your units or a solid smooth face with cup handles. Should you wish to be bold in your design, your units can be done in a navy blue or a dark forest green with antique silver handles.
Classic can often be mixed up with Modern as it too is seen as a simple design, the difference between the two are colours and where the Modern style will avoid using patterns and handles, Classical and traditional styles embrace it. Small filigree on handles make all the difference when it comes to Units, as dainty and tiny as it is – the impact it can make is something of note. Creams, soft whites, pine units and brushed nickel for handless or any plain colour really. Just like Rustic design, the Classic style works exceptionally well with wood – although this is usually reserved for counter tops but can be used for the units too. Ensure that your classic kitchen does not become boring by just using one shade of colour, try incorporating something that stands out like having light coloured units below your island and dark units by the wall.
Eclectic design is the hybrid form of all designs. Where it may follow a particular colour theme or shape theme, the era of design – Art Deco, Modern, Rustic, Traditional, etc- is not present. A lot does not always mean too much, although this line can become blurred when it comes to Eclectic design. To ensure you do not over do it, stick with neutral tones in order to tie everything together. You want variety, not a mess. With this particular style, the sky is the limit with your choices. There is no specific handle, unit design or size to choose to follow this match this style. Although, a good way to start would be to choose which of your items you would like to match, and which would you like to stand out. An example would be to have different handles on your bottom units – drawer-line, base, etc – to your top units such as bridging units, wall units, etc. Or for a bolder approach you could mix and match with glass wall units (Modern), panelled base and drawer units (Rustic) all in soft tones (Classic) to ensure your kitchen is not too overwhelming.
Enough about all the wonderous things you could potentially do with your kitchen and let us get down to business and find just exactly what it is you need. More in depth information and technical advice on the different units are available on our website or please contact on of our friendly staff to assist.
