Stone is available in three major categories being the manmade “Reconstituted Stone” or either of the naturals “Granite” or “Marble”.

Reconstituted Stone

Reconstituted stones trade under name sakes such as Essa Stone, Caesar Stone, Trend Stone, Quantum Quartz, Sile Stone and the like, they are ideal for any kitchen or counter top.  Reconstituted Stone is also known as “Engineered Stone” and is a combination of natural granite and marble chips, combined with powder and a highly specialled polyester resin.  Reconstituted Stone features strength and durability and shows a consistent colour pattern in a selected colour range, it has little to no degree of porosity.

Granite

Granite has a high compressive strength and is a natural and excellent choice for your kitchen or any benchtop.  Granite is sourced from all over the world and comes in a multitude of dimensional and unique colours and patterns, all a gift from nature!  Granite is usually found with a small degree of porosity.

Marble

Marble is a great natural stone most suitable for vanity tops and vertical surfaces like reception areas where lighting can be added behind, to illuminate the natural streaks or veins in the mostly white/light product.  A vast range of colours can be sourced.  Marble is usually found with a large degree of porosity therefore is not suitable for kitchen benchtops.

Two-Pack Paints

Boasting our own in-house paint booth, two-pack painted doors/drawers and panels are extremely modern, hard wearing and durable.  Gloss, matt or sparkle finishes are available in a diverse range of colours including the use of Laminex and Dulux colour charts.  We also have a range of routed patterned doors to choose from.  Our in-house painting service affords our customers competitively priced product as we are not outsourcing this service.

Laminates

Laminates are the most affordable option for benchtops combined with laminate panels for cupboard doors and drawers, and available in hundreds of different colours to suit your taste! Laminate also comes in a range of finishes from matt to gloss and something in between.  Laminate suppliers are regularly updating their stock boards with modern colours, textures and properties.
