    Hi we have had a Howdens kitchen fitted. Our worktop massively overhangs. I am not sure what is causing this - if itís the way it was fitted or if thatís just the size. I bought 620x40mm.

    Normal worktops are 600mm that's with about 30mm overhang from door/drawer front. So yours are 50mm?

    I fit around 15 - 20 Howdens kitchens each year.


    Their standard worktops are 616 x 38mm. This is to allow a decent overhang over the door / drawer front. I think this looks a lot better than having them flush.


    Its more an aesthetic thing.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.
