    I've got a gap of around 6mm between a kitchen worktop edge and the wall. What's the best way to fill this gap? I'm looking for a simple method that leaves a nice finish.

    If you can, tile down to it. Otherwise you should set the worktop into the wall a tad at the places it touches. Or take the worktop off and scribe a line to cut to. Or (as the wall is obviously bowed) plaster the hollow away with a darby.

    The issue is that all the painting and decorating is complete. The worktops are all secured. The decorators must have missed the gap so I need to fill it with something.

    How about an upstand? Filling always looks a bodge.
