Reconstituted Caesarstone marble benchtops Melbourne

Marble benchtops  such as Caesarstone benchtops can make a great statement piece to any room, when you opt for the right look and feel. Whether it’s your dining room, kitchen, bathroom or for commercial purposes, they allow for a glamorous take that’s also easy to maintain – offering a lifetime of use that makes them an accessory and an essential.

However, there are a few different designs to choose from and what you decide on ultimately depends on the room’s colour scheme, preference and budget. Fortunately, we’ve designed our process to make choosing marble kitchen benchtops easy.


Caesarstone Marble Kitchen Benchtop Installations

While Caesarstone marble and similar materials are stain, scratch and heat resistant, they typically cannot be used as splashbacks in existing kitchens.

Additionally, many of these brands do not provide any form of warranty coverage for cracks, which can be common, due to their weight. They can crack within as little as 12 months, leaving you with a ruined countertop that isn’t covered by any form of protection.

Fortunately, there is an alternative. QuartzStone12’s weight has been carefully engineered to guard against cracking. Manufactured to be as little as 40 percent of the weight of a standard Caesarstone benchtop, it’s the perfect fit for all kitchens.

For kitchens, splashbacks, bathrooms and more, QuartzStone12 considered a more modern alternative to granite and marble benchtops in Melbourne. A versatile material, it can be installed in almost any interior space as well as outdoors and in business establishments.

If you are renovating your kitchen and are offered any other brand made with a thicker material, we encourage you to check out alternatives. Avoiding doing any research and opting for a durable, long-lasting solution means you’re likely to blow your budget on cabinet makers, templates and substrates – wasting your resources before the job is completed.

Read the warranty terms carefully before you purchase as most don’t provide cover for damage caused by natural sunlight which enters through your window, and – most importantly – do not cover cracking that occurs after the installation.

Marble Benchtops Frequently Asked Questions

Natural marble provides a striking and unique feature to any kitchen, with its one-of-a-kind patterns and colouring and bold, stony finish. Because it is natural, it is highly affordable. Still, because of its quality, it looks like a highly expensive material, so it is an excellent way for anybody to impress their friends and family when they renovate their kitchen. Here is everything you need to know about marble and its applications in your kitchen space:

What is a marble benchtop?

Marble is a metamorphic rock, created when limestone is exposed to high temperatures beneath the earth’s surface. Calcite causes the limestone to become much denser, and the process also creates unique patterns in the stone that makes it so impressive to look at. Because the process makes it so durable, it is an excellent option for the kitchen as it is resistant to scratching, chipping and cracking. And the patterns are so distinct that human-made efforts to replicate it have been mainly unsuccessful – there is nothing like the real deal.

Is marble okay for kitchen countertops?

Marble is not only OK to use in the kitchen; it is almost the perfect substance. It is not only resistant to scratching and cracking, etc., but it is also highly resistant to fire and will not easily stain. And it’s durability plays second fiddle to the attractiveness of the stone, which will give your kitchen a bold and unique look.

How much does a slab of marble cost?

Marble ranges from around $40 per square foot to $100 per square foot but can be more expensive depending on the quality of the patterns and the colours in the stone. Premium options are the best choice for upmarket, premium settings and will deliver a truly unique appearance to any kitchen. But at the lower end, you are still getting all of the structural benefits of marble so you can’t lose.

What splashback goes with a marble benchtop?

Marble is versatile so you can mix and match it with a range of other materials. You can always go for a matching marble splashback, but contrast is also great (especially in the modern world) because it adds more drama vibrancy to the space. You can also choose to match your splashback and benchtops through colour but use different materials, so there is still a slight amount of contract in your brand new kitchen.
