Hello Dont-do-it - and yes, in fact it was the very honest guests who, having left very early in the morning and therefore we didn't get to inspect the house before they left, told us to keep the deposit. Which made it much easier than TELLING them that we were going to keep it. And agree about the insurance, am almost certain that i won't be covered - sob... I am still looking into repair kits, just need to make sure that i find the right match, well, close enough at least. And i know that i am being lazy, not phoning St Brieuc Hygena, where we bought the kitchen, first !!!

I doubt insrance will cover damage to a work top unless you specificially requested it to be covered. Our granite worktop cracked in half behind the taps when my husband stood on it to paint the wall. We told our insurance office but were told it wasn't covered. It seems if you want accidental damage you need to list the items you want covered.

avoican does not seem to know or read very well as Hygena is French or at least has 100s of shops around France.

As BCW66 said, and if it is feasible; cut or router it out and place in a piece of stone or hardwood to create an embedded "cutting board".

Otherwise, counter-tops are not very expensive here if they are "wood grained" formica. Should have kept their security deposit, accident or not.

Why not have bought a French worktop and allways have had access to replacement parts etc ??

Why not cut it/router it out and put a piece of slate/granite in just a idea

It may seem extreme, but have you contacted your insurer to see if you are covered for accidental damage, and therefore possible replacement of the work surface.

Have you tried Kitchen Fitting Supplies www.kitchenfittingsupplies.co.uk I believe that they will colour match to your requirements, if you can send them a small sample, possibly from a trim end.
