Walls & Cills
Upstands are a type of vertical finishing strip or edge that are installed along the back edge of a kitchen worktop to protect the wall from water, moisture, and stains. These upstands are typically made from the same material as the worktop, and are designed to seamlessly blend in with the rest of the countertop.
The primary function of upstands is to provide a protective barrier between the worktop and the wall behind it. This helps to prevent water or other liquids from seeping behind the worktop, which can cause damage to the wall or the surface itself. Upstands also help to prevent crumbs or debris from collecting behind the worktop, making cleaning easier and more efficient.
Upstands can be installed in different heights to fit the specific needs and style preferences of the homeowner. They can be customised to match the colour and pattern of the worktop, creating a cohesive and seamless look in the kitchen. Some homeowners may also choose to install upstands along the sides of the worktop, providing additional protection and a more finished look.
