Our Crystal designs reinterpret the classic popularity of granite and stone, yet with the distinct advantage of a smooth and seamless flow of material that is unmistakably modern. There are no obvious joints, either to the eye or to the touch, ensuring you have a superbly hygienic surface.
Available in glass with green flecks, this Crystal design is enhanced by a random opaque chip giving the surface a luxurious visual depth. This is a design with enduring appeal and the versatility to combine with a wide range of kitchen styles, from heritage painted doors to contemporary woodgrains.
Easy working and living
With Encore, you are assured stand-out style. The finest materials and manufacturing techniques guarantee a product of superior quality, with edges expertly finished to the highest standards.
For up-scale designer looks, go for a slab end in solid surfacing. The continuation of the material on the end of a furniture run or island unit will give your kitchen a distinctive contemporary feel.
There is no expensive fabrication work off-site, because the material can be shaped and tailored by your kitchen installer whilst on the project. So, there is no time delay for templating, either - just fast and easy installation which helps saves you money as well as disruption.
Sinks with style
Encore lends itself to many different sink options; inset, under-mounted, integrally moulded and flush-mounted. Flush-mounted sinks are the ultimate in designer styling and with Encore you can achieve it easily. The material is first routered and the sink set in so that it sits perfectly flush.
For the ultimate in streamlined looks, go for an integral sink with precision-machined drainer grooves. The seamless flow between the moulded bowl and the work surface shows off the true aesthetics of solid surfacing at its very best.
Made from 100% acrylic, our sinks guarantee the highest levels of hygiene and performance being both durable and non-porous. They are also robust enough for the high-speed demands of a waste disposal unit. Elegantly designed, the choice of single and one and a half bowl sinks are stylish whilst being practical enough to cope with a hard-working kitchen.

Care & Maintenance
Your Encore work surface is developed to cope with every day wear and tear from crockery and utensils. And whilst it is highly impact and heat resistant, your work surface can become damaged if mistreated, so we recommend some sensible measures like placing hot pans or casserole dishes on protective mats, mopping up spills quickly and not chopping directly onto it.
A major benefit of Encore is its ability to be repaired or refinished. Minor scratches, which can be more apparent with darker colours, can be removed by using the Scotch-Brite pad provided in our After Care Kit. In the unlikely event of more significant damage, we suggest using an Encore installer who is able to repair and refinish your surfaces.
In day-to-day usage, keeping your surface as good as new requires little more than normal cleaning with a mild detergent and water. Then rinse with clean water and buff gently dry. Maintaining this finish will require a periodic application of BB Professional Worktop Polish, which is supplied in our Installation Kit. To maintain your Encore surfaces our After Care Kit is available from your retailer or can be ordered directly from Bushboard.
