    Hi all, I have a kitchen worktop which is chipped in the corner, see attached photo.

    The rest of the worktops and the units are in decent condition and I’d rather see if I can repair/fix up the corner first rather than replacing all the worktops and kitchen.

    Any suggestions on how it could be repaired?

    Maybe you can find something like unika colorfill for your worktop. It will be a single colour though (unless you got multiple)

    ....and if you don't like the result of any filling attempts, or maybe even in addition to, make a feature of it with a decorative corner protector.

    i like mrrustys idea , but you could also raid the wifes nail varnish bag and see whats in there. it’s good stuff , you can build it up over a few days to get the level you want . and think of all the colours you can have fun mixing up.:LOL:

    Circular saw with a fine blade, finish with a hand or an oscillating saw.

    or am I seeing the picture wrong?

    Regards

    not worth the risk with a circular saw imo , unless he can remove it and turn it upside down.

    That’s why I recommended the end-cover. If you look at the profile it has a small lip across the top, the whole length of the straight top.

    A very careful hand-sawn start could then allow a little more forgiveness for the power-tooled part

    As the posited alternative is replacement of ALL the worktops, this risk/reward could be quite attractive

    Regards
