Cooktop surrounds

You've bought a new cooktop, but there's gaps - What can you do? ….. OR

You're trying to find a replacement cooktop that'll fit in the existing cutout

These are common scenarios for kitchen renovators, since many new cooktop models are narrower than the older ones.

DON'T PANIC, this is not a problem.

there should be no need to replace your benchtop (unless there's something else wrong with it).

you probably don't even need to return your new cooktop, and start the process of looking for another one.

Our custom-made cooktop surrounds mean you can use almost any new cooktop (as long as it will physically fit) with your existing benchtop.

This is great news for anyone renovating on a budget, or anyone wanting to tidy up a damaged benchtop around the cooktop area.

For situations where the surround will cover a large gap, it may be wise to fill the gaps with timber first to support the stainless steel. It doesn’t have to be super neat, since as long as the timber doesn’t stick up above the benchtop you’ll cover it with the cooktop surround, and the glue will fill in any “neatness” discrepancies.

Also be aware that while it’s easier to install your new cooktop once the surround is in place, if you're in a time bind to get the new cooktop installed by your electrician or plumber you can slide the surround diagonally over the pre-installed cooktop if you need to. This will require 2 people, but can be done pretty easily.
