Hi everyone, first post here.
So we moved into a Persimmon new build 3yrs ago and the cheap kitchen worktop is looking worse for wear. Now my French father in-law has been an artisan tiler over the last 50yrs and says he thinks its possible to tile over the worktop rather than the hassle and cost of replacing it. The only thing he's not too sure about is both the surface and the curved edges. In France tiling worktops is common however they don't usually have formica tops, they're either solid wood or various stones and granites. I've noticed Dural dp Aluminium Worktop Countertop Edging For Tiles - 2.5m. - https://www.nationalstairnosings.co.uk/aluminium-worktop-countertop-edging-for-tiles-2-5m/ is available from a supplier to finish the edges but again I don't know if it would be high enough to cover the curved edge of worktop. Has anyone managed to successfully tile a laminate worktop?
Any advice would be most welcome, thanks, Matt
