Replacing Your Counter or Bench Top

For DIY professionals and those with a reasonable amount of experience with stone cutting and polishing, replacing the kitchen bench is a hugely rewarding task which really does pay dividends in the long run.

These days, the most common choices are marble, granite, or polished concrete, as they are somewhat immune to the bumps and scratches which are so regular in a kitchen environment.

These surfaces are also largely heat resistant, and can withstand fairly dramatic changes in temperature in a short amount of time, making them even better for cooking and transferring items from the oven for serving.

Raw materials you need will set you back a reasonable amount, and as we said, this is not a project for the faint hearted. But, if you have the confidence and the time, replacing the kitchen countertop will add value to your property in the long run.
