One of the most commonly requested customisations of kitchen worktops is the addition of drainage grooves. Drainage grooves are an important part of any kitchen as they allow water to drain from the kitchen work surface and straight into the sink. There are two types of drainage grooves, in-built and add-ons. It is only possible to route in-built drainage grooves in solid materials such as granite, quartz or wood and other options such as laminate cannot support this addition.
If you are about to order a new kitchen worktop and you’re wondering what benefits there are to having in-built drainage grooves, take a look at the following list.
Benefits of drainage grooves:
- Saving money – It is highly cost effective to fashion drainage grooves into the kitchen worktop itself sue to the simple fact that it doesn’t require a separate and costly drainer unit. Saving money doesn’t have to mean reduced effectiveness though as they operate in exactly the same way as a separate unit would.
- Ideal for using with Belfast/under-mounted sinks – A Belfast or under mounted sink will require a drainer of some description and by routing the grooves into the surface itself, you’ll again negate the need for a separate unit.
- Fashion – By being able to select drainage grooves which meld seamlessly with the sink itself, your kitchen will have a really slick, on-trend appearance.
You can choose from a number of different options when it comes to designing your drainage grooves including the length, number of grooves and whether they’ll populate just one side or both.
