What Houzz contributors are saying:
Granite Granite is a beautiful, natural stone that has always been a popular choice for kitchen benchtops, due to its durability, availability and timeless look. There’s a huge choice on the market and each slab of granite has natural variations in colour and pattern, making every piece unique. The availability of a particular colour will depend on what can be obtained from granite quarries around the world. Expect to pay anywhere from $700 right up to $1,700 per square metre for a new granite benchtop. This includes having your new benchtops templated, manufactured to size and installed by a professional stone mason. Most stone masons will charge a bit extra for an under-mount sink cut-out, due to the extra work involved in polishing the exposed edges. This will set you back around $250. To complement an under-mount sink, a great addition to any stone benchtop is having drainer grooves routed into the surface so that water runs straight into your sink and doesn’t pool on the benchtop. Adding these grooves is very labour intensive and the process is likely to cost you an additional $350.
