We are having a new kitchen fitted and there is a small gap between the wall and the oak worktop in a corner. Is this normal? DH says tiles will cover it up but we currently can’t agree on tiles so we might paint it and I don’t understand why it isn’t flush. I don’t know what is acceptable and what isn’t!
There is normally always a very small gap of a few mm between the wall & the worktop especially with wood as it needs to expand & contract in the changing environment of the kitchen. Not to mention the walls are never completely straight. The gap is usually covered by tiles, an upstand or silicone sealant. So nothing to worry about =)
