Kitchen benchtops can be made from several different products, the highest quality being genuine stone such as granite or marble. Careful consideration should be given to the choice of your benchtop when working with your kitchen designer on your kitchen design. With so many beautiful surface finishes available it can be tricky narrowing it down. One surface finish for benchtops that our kitchen designers specify is genuine stone. Both granite and marble can be used as a kitchen benchtop, creating a lovely, organic feel in your kitchen. Visit one of our kitchen showrooms to see these two stones on display. Each piece is unique, differing from any other, even from the same quarry. This means you have a beautiful, original, and quality stone benchtop that has been chosen just for you. With some regular care and attention your stone benchtop will retain its look, quality and durability for the lifetime of your kitchen and beyond. The kitchen designers at The Kitchen Design Centre can specify the perfect stone solution for your kitchen, helping to create a warm and inviting kitchen space. During your second appointment (which is held in one of our kitchen showrooms) when you make your colour selections, your kitchen designer will be able to show you a range of colours and advise whether or not genuine stone is a good decision for your family and your lifestyle.
