Kapiti Benchtops Ltd


Kapiti Benchtops offers custom made high pressure laminate tops. Our benchtops come in a large range of colours and styles, utilising all major laminate brands such as Formica, Laminex, Prime and Wilsonart.

Laminate is a popular material choice as it is:

  • Cost effective
  • Easy to clean and care for
  • Hard wearing
  • Huge variety of colour and styles to choose from

Unfortunately, we no longer offer an installation service for our laminate benchtops and manufacture to supply only. We can provide contact details for experienced installers if you wish.

Benchtops can be edged in many different options and thicknesses. The most popular being a rolled or square edge.

Rolled Edge

A rolled edge provides a clean, consistent look with no joins. It is ideal for environments where pointed edges need to be avoided or impact with the body might occur.

Square Edge

Is made by clashing the benchtop edge with a piece of the same laminate to create a true square edge (a dark line will be visible on lighter colours).

The standard thickness of a benchtop is 37mm but we can custom make to your personal preference.


You have the option of having your benchtop manufactured with an upstand. There are two types of upstands – coved or square. We would recommend using a coved upstand behind the sink area as this doesn't require a join and is more suitable around wet areas.


You can expect the fabrication of your laminate benchtop to be completed within three weeks.

Sink Inserts

There are many different brands of stainless steel sink inserts available. We are only too happy to supply a sink you require, or we can fit your own specific sink provided.

Please note that as laminate is extremely thin, we do not undermount sinks (where the sink is fixed under the benchtop) into the laminate material so sinks will need to be topmounted.
