    Did you ever get a response or find out the answer to your question? I am interested in the thickness of this benchtop. Thank you.

        25. Location: Watsons Bay, NSWWhy we love it: Concrete may have industrial roots, but our universal love affair with this humble material has it showing up in the slickest of kitchens, adding both functionality and style.

        It can create a sense of harmonyConcerned that a concrete surface could dominate your kitchen and distract from the rest of the features? Then create a cohesive look by mirroring the grey tones around the rest of design. The concrete benchtop won’t stand out, it will feel at one with the room.

        3. Clear the benchThe kitchen is the room that records the highest traffic in a house. As a result, benchtops often become natural dumping spots for bits and pieces as family members and housemates pass through. Bring some calm and order to the space this month by removing and relocating things that don’t belong on your kitchen bench. Once that’s done, wash down the kitchen and return those few items that really deserve a spot on the bench.In a perfect world, the kitchen benchtop should only require two to three minutes to clear down. Make sure you spend these few minutes each day to keep the clutter at bay.12 Tactics for Creating More Kitchen Bench Space

        If you’re convinced a sleek, white kitchen is still for you, you’ll need to bring it down to earth for it to work well with concrete. Even small touches of natural timber can prevent it from feeling sterile – in this case, the stools, bread board and wooden spoons. Tip: Displaying fruit, leafy herbs and flowers can breathe life into any kitchen, no matter how minimalist or industrial its design.

        Polished concretePolished concrete benchtops are becoming very popular. Concrete is an incredibly solid material, and benchtops can be fabricated with a wide variety of textures, colours, shapes and inlays to add a completely unique feel to your kitchen. Concrete benchtops are fabricated using a mould, and while it’s possible to make your own concrete benchtop, you’re better off leaving this one to the professionals. Due to the heavy weight of concrete, depending on the thickness of your benchtop, it may be necessary to have specialist supports incorporated into your kitchen design to prevent damage to the cabinets under the bench. While the materials used to manufacture a concrete benchtop are relatively inexpensive, the labour-intensive processes involved in the fabrication, installation and polishing of this material bump the price up considerably. Expect to pay anywhere between $1,000 and $1,750 per square metre, including fabrication and installation.

        5. Texture, texture, texture“I can see more and more texture being introduced in kitchen design in 2016,” predicts Ellard. “Homeowners have loved the pared-back minimalist white kitchen style for quite a while now, and I think it will still remain popular; however, the addition of textures adds depth and interest.”

        Mix up materialsOne easy way to add a hint of colour and texture to a white room without paint or wallpaper is by using a different material – concrete and wood tend to work well with white. In keeping with the industrial style in this kitchen, the concrete worktop offsets the white without detracting from it.

        Kate Macdessi added this to Safety First: How to Avoid a House Fire in Winter15 Jun 2015

        If a fire does start on the cooktop, remember that water doesn’t put out a fat or oil fire. The first thing to do is use a lid to smother the fire. If this doesn’t work, or you aren’t quick enough to get there before it spreads, it’s handy to have a small extinguisher or a fire blanket in, or near, the kitchen. All homes must have a smoke alarm and regular tests should be taken to make sure these alarms are in good working order.
