“In 1990 I moved house to Welling Garden City, Herts. The house was a couple of years old and had laminate worktops in the kitchen.

I was looking for something a bit better and more Eco friendly. In my search I came across a company called Glass Eco in London, who supplied a recycled glass worksurface. I went to their showroom, selected a product and the company came to my home to template (measure) ready for supply and installation.

I decided to have a complete new kitchen from John Lewis, my brother was roped in to fit my new kitchen units, carry out all the tiling and generally prepare for the new worksurfaces.

Once everything was installed the worktop guys returned and fitted the worksurfaces. I found the worksurfaces very resilient, easy to clean and they looked great.

Some years later when I moved to Derbyshire nearer to my brothers who lived in Derby and the Wirral. I decided to replace my kitchen worksurfaces again. My new home in Great Longstone, a shoe making village historically, had a lovely kitchen however the worksurfaces were Corian which, I found scratched far too easy. I was used to recycled glass which was far more durable.

To my great disappointment when I looked for my previous supplier I found they were no longer in business however to my delight I found the manufacturer, Diamik Glass, somewhat closer in the North of England in Leeds to be exact. When I spoke to them and explained my needs everything just flowed. I received a quotation, my kitchen was measured and templated for new worksurfaces and a few weeks later a team arrived removed my old worksurfaces and fitted my new ones.

My kitchen has a traditional look so I decided to go for a specific colour and mix of materials to compliment my kitchen perfectly.

I would highly recommend the team from Diamik Glass to anyone, wishing to have high quality Eco Friendly surfaces in their home.”
