Stone Benchtops

Natural Stone

Natural stone benchtops are made from quarried stone slabs found in nature. They come in a variety of colours, patterns and textures and are known for their durability and timeless beauty. Some of the most popular natural stones used for benchtops include marble, granite, and quartzite. Natural stone benchtops are unique in that each one is entirely different, with its own special pattern and characteristics. They are also heat-resistant and able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. The affordability of this type depends on its quality and unique markings.


Marble is a type of natural stone prized for its beauty and elegance. It is typically white or light-coloured with subtle grey or beige veins, making it a popular choice for bathrooms and kitchens. Marble is known for being cool and smooth to the touch and is heat-resistant, making it a good choice for countertops near stoves. It is also considered a luxurious material and comes with the higher price tag you’d expect from a premium product.


Granite is another type of natural stone often used for benchtops. It is known for its durability and resistance to scratches, chips and stains. It is also heat-resistant, making it a good choice for kitchens. Granite comes in a wide range of colours and patterns, so you can choose the look that best suits your taste and decor. It generally comes with a mid-range price tag unless it originates from a particularly rare or unique slab.

Engineered Stone

Also known as quartz or composite stone, engineered stone is an artificial material designed to look like natural stone. It is made from a mixture of natural minerals and resin, which makes it non-porous and resistant to stains and scratches. Engineered stone is available in a wide range of colours and patterns, so you can choose the look that best suits your needs. Engineered stone is also low-maintenance and easy to clean, making it a good choice for busy households. It is usually priced affordably and can be a good option for those who love the look of a natural stone slab but don’t have the budget.

Providing Home Renovations

If you’re considering a home renovation, you’ll want to consider all aspects of your interior design, including the colour palette, flooring and, of course, your benchtops. Your benchtops are one of the most prominent features in your kitchen or bathroom and can significantly impact the overall look and feel of your space. That’s why choosing the right material, colour and finish for your benchtops is important.

Matching the colour and finish of your benchtops with other elements in your home, such as your walls, flooring and cabinetry, can help create a cohesive and harmonious look. Consider the overall colour palette of your space and choose a stone that complements and enhances it. If you’re not sure where to start, our team can help guide you through the planning and selection process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Compared to laminate benchtops, stone benchtops have a far more attractive appearance. Benchtops made from stone are also harder, scratch-resistant and longer-lasting than laminate benchtops.

Choosing stone for your kitchen and vanity is a great choice because it requires less maintenance and is a great investment. The likelihood of needing to replace a laminate benchtop, regardless of whether the property is to be rented or your own house, is much greater because hot pans and plates will damage laminate much more quickly than stone.

And because they are so aesthetically appealing, they are going to be attractive to potential buyers, should you ever decide to sell.


The name “natural stone” describes the fact that it is formed and discovered in the earth naturally. The natural stone found in homes all over the world has been quarried with skill and transported with care. Essentially, engineered stone is manufactured stone. The main ingredient of engineered stone is quartz, which is one of the strongest minerals on earth. The remainder of it, however, is created artificially.

Stone is a tough and hard material. It is both long-lasting and resistant to scratches and chips when used in a kitchen or bathroom benchtop. Natural stone also resists stains, especially if it is properly sealed.

Engineered stone benchtops are scratch-resistant, chip-resistant, and stain-resistant, too. In contrast to more porous natural stones, its real benefit is it’s more hygienic to use in areas subject to spills of liquids and water. Engineered stone benchtops are also well suited for bathrooms and kitchens.


When you’re on a budget and want all the bells and whistles in your kitchen, then granite is a great choice for your benchtop. Designed to last a lifetime, it is incredibly durable.

Natural stone like marble is suitable for a top-of-the-line kitchen if the price isn’t an issue. It is delicate and should be handled with care. Marble is more porous than granite, so it must be sealed and maintained.

Quartz is the perfect choice if you are looking for practicality. Currently, it is one of the most popular choices; it is affordable and comes in a variety of colours and designs. It is also nonporous, so no sealant is needed.


Keep the surface clean by wiping it down with warm soapy water or a household detergent to remove residue that could stain it. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the surface. You can apply methylated spirits to the cloth to give the surface an extra shine. Remember that engineered stone and marble will also need to be periodically sealed.


With Vivid Stoneworks, benchtops can be custom made to any specifications. From kitchens to floors and bathrooms, we have the best materials and skilled technicians to bring your home to life. Forget disposable laminate, make the step up to stone surfaces and benchtops today.
