I have a granite bench top in my new kitchen. I have about six metres of bench, including an island bench. My husband and I went to a granite warehouse and chose our huge pice of granite. It is pink with some deep red veins which match beautifully with our recycled jarrah floor. Stone masons installed the bench tops perfectly. The granite bench top in total cost $7000 and I love it.

Affordable Stone Benchtops

Great article and comments. From our expertise in the Quartz stone manufacturing and installing industry we recommend clients to plan their new kitchens back to front. Select a stone benchtop, if that's what you're after. Stone slabs vary in size from 3000x1400mm to approx 3200x1600mm. Once you have selected a brand and colour, stick to maximising usage of stone slab and design your Kitchen so you don't run into buying extra stone just for a few extra mm. Also, pick your stone fabricator before the kicthen as you might find a factory

hat has an extra Offcut in the same batch that will reduce final cost, if you do run into buying more than a slab of stone.
