    Looking to get our kitchen worktop to extend into the corner of the kitchen (see picture). The previous owner of the house had their fridge there, hence the gap.

    Would this be a case of replacing the whole length or could a place be added just to fit the corner. If you placed a piece just in that corner how could you make it blend as seamless as possible.

    Any thoughts or advice would be great on this.

    Chris,
    Seamless - impossible.
    If on a budget, use a "Worktop Straight Joint Trim" and a short length of similar (or perhaps contrasting) worktop.

    Use metal L brackets or 1by1 wood attached to wall for it to sit on.

    As hard to get cheap short worktops, might actually be cheaper to get new worktop - get same thickness as you have now:
