Stone Benchtops Adelaide

Beauty meets function & durability with stone

Why Choose a Stone Benchtop

Stone benchtops have come a long way in recent years with big names in the business designing and manufacturing various composite stones for every application. Stone benchtops offer heatproof and scratch-resistant properties, making them a popular choice for modern kitchens.

At Alluring Kitchens, we offer a competitive quote on your next renovation or benchtop installation. With the vast supply of different manufacturers, the choice of colours is endless. Not only can we offer variations of thickness from 20, 40 and 60mm, we can make custom thicknesses to suit the look you want.

Kitchen Overlay Service Available

We also offer an overlay service, which means we can overlay an existing sub-straight with a 7mm stone and finish it in such a way that you wouldn’t know the old benchtop was underneath. This service is affordable and can be done onsite within 1-2 days of starting. It also offers the opportunity to install into bay window areas and can be installed and wrapped around a new end panel to allow a waterfall end to the kitchen. We can also make alterations and change sink and cooktop sizes before the new overlay is installed.

Types of Stone Benchtops Available

  1. Granite: Granite is a natural stone that is known for its durability and heat resistance. It has a unique and natural appearance, with each piece having its own pattern and texture. Granite is available in a range of colors and patterns, making it easy to find one that complements your kitchen decor. It is also very low maintenance and easy to clean.
  2. Basalt: Basalt is a volcanic rock that has a unique texture and color. It is known for its durability and resistance to scratches and stains. Basalt is available in a range of shades of gray and black, making it perfect for modern and contemporary kitchen designs. It is also a low maintenance option that is easy to clean and does not require sealing.
  3. Limestone: Limestone is a sedimentary rock that has a soft and warm appearance. It is available in a range of shades, from light beige to gray. Limestone is known for its durability and resistance to heat and scratches. However, it is more porous than other stone types, so it does require regular sealing to prevent staining.
  4. Marble: Marble is a luxurious and elegant option for kitchen benchtops. It has a unique veining and coloration that adds character to any kitchen. Marble is a softer stone that requires more maintenance than other stone types, but with proper care, it can last a lifetime. It is not as heat-resistant as granite or quartz, so it is important to use trivets or hot pads to protect the surface.
  5. Quantum Quartz: Quantum Quartz is a composite stone made from natural quartz and other materials. It is highly resistant to scratches and stains, making it a practical choice for busy kitchens. It is available in a range of colors and patterns, including options that mimic the look of natural stone. Quantum Quartz is also non-porous, making it hygienic and easy to clean.

After numerous visits to kitchen makers I ended up attending Alluring Kitchens at Henley Beach. I first met with Jasmine with my plans for a kitchen make over. I then spoke to Steve, the owner and decided to go with them for my kitchen. Jasmin was exceptional and professional and soon had my plans costed and ready to order. I met Steve the owner and Daniel one of his staff. The pricing was good and as I required the installation quickly and I was assisted in every way and the makeover was installed in about 2 weeks. The installers were very professional and left the kitchen area totally clean upon completion. I would like to thank and recommend Steve, Jasmin and the staff at Alluring Kitchens for anyone looking for a new kitchen or makeover. The whole process was made easy from start to completion. I always like to support local businesses but anyone in the state looking for a kitchen please call Steve and his friendly and professional staff and you will be totally satisfied. A great team and business. SUPPORT THEM

Steve came up with the solution as to where my dishwasher could be installed & quickly measured up for the kitchen alterations & prepared the quote which I promptly accepted. Whilst waiting for the delivery of the dishwasher, Washington made all of the new cupboards & drawers & did a first class job. Upon delivery of the dishwasher, Washington then came & installed all of the new cabinetry & positioned the dishwasher for connection. It was all done in less than a day. The following morning, before 8am, the Electrician arrived & connected the dishwasher in about half an hour. Shortly after, the plumber arrived & did his connection in about the same amount of time. Overall it was a seamless, very efficient process & I would highly recommend Alluring Kitchens for their expertise & professionalism.

What a fantastic experience from beginning to end!!! All we wanted was to remove our existing raised breakfast bar, laminate bench top to make way for our stone top and altering cupboards to fit our new stove. Big kitchen companies tried to convince us that it is better to put a whole new kitchen in than to do a modification (you do not throw out a beautiful cream 2pac kitchen). One smaller company was prepared to do what we wanted but they said we would have to remove two cupboards that sat on our benchtop and then replace them again at a cost. On top of all of that, they said we would have to replace all the tiles as there probably be some damage occurring. Still not satisfied and after a google search, we found Steve on the internet. Steve took the time to listen to what we wanted and then came to see our kitchen at no call out fee. He re-assured us that they would take care in removing the bench tops without removing cupboards or damaging tiles. He said we would be without a kitchen for 2 weeks only and that is exactly what we got ( oh .. and not a single broken tile and didn't even remove the cupboards....amazing!) Steve, we would love to thank you and your wonderful team of trades from the kitchen installers, to the stonemason. His craftmanship was beyond exceptional and the Caesarstone looks brilliant. They all took the utmost care when in our kitchen and cleaned up when finished. Cost wise, Steve came in as very cost effective. Steve was wonderful to work with from the beginning to the end and delivered on what he promised at a very high standard. We would highly recommend Alluring Kitchens for a remodel as they listen , they care and they deliver! Thank you again. October 2023: A year later and we got our bar area in our kitchen designed and installed by Alluring Kitchens. Again, it has been a pleasure to work with such a professional company. Congratulations to Steve and his fantastic team!

How to start and where to begin... Firstly, I think Alluring Kitchens deserve a 10 stars out of 5. Yes, that's exactly how amazing they are. If you read the reviews carefully, you will know that everyone who actually worked or has been working with them gives 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 It's a daunting task to renovate, especially with the kitchen and wet area. Steve and his team made everything so easy and doable. At the same time, it is very practical and helpful. The first time we contacted Steve, he is so friendly, kind, and accommodating. In comparing other people, we've been contacted (a dozen kitchen reno places), they either choose "bigger job" with bigger budget, or, "too busy" that not able to follow up with us. Steve is genuinely interested in assisting us to achieve what we want. For example, we came up with an idea to do a two-tone kitchen, Steve and his team are excited and helping us to finalise the concept into a product. Their "always achievable" attitude is so inspiring. They are honest, trustworthy, positive, and professional. Along the whole process, from quotation, material selection, renovation, and after completion, Steve and his team are absolutely fantastic and responsible. We have no word to describe how amazing and wonderful they are. Keep it short and simple, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. we love our kitchen and laundry very much. If you want a trouble-free renovation, we highly recommend Alluring Kitchens.

I highly recommend Steve and his team at Alluring Kitchens. Happy to work with customers on bespoke designs. Professionalism, Reliable, and High Quality workmanship
When we first starting looking at upgrading our kitchen the companies we first approached looked at replacing the kitchen on a like for like layout. We then contacted Alluring Kitchens were very impressed with Steve when he first visited our home as took his time and listened to what we thought and then he suggested a totally new redesign which would make the layout more workable and opened up the entire area. To Steve, team and the contractors involved we would love to thank you. They all took the utmost care while working in our home and cleaned up every day before leaving. They were also very professional and approachable. We are very happy with the final outcome.

I usually don't write reviews but Steve and the rest of his team went above and beyond at every step. I had an outdoor kitchen installed and very happy with the result. Highly recommend

Frequently asked questions about stone benchtops

  • Quartz Benchtops: Quartz is an engineered stone made from over 90% crushed quartz crystals combined with resin. This composition makes quartz highly durable, non-porous, and resistant to stains and bacteria. Quartz does not require sealing and maintains its sleek appearance without much maintenance. It is available in a wider range of colors and patterns due to its manufactured nature, allowing for consistent designs and hues across the slab.
  • Granite Benchtops: Granite is a natural stone characterized by its grainy appearance and robustness. Each slab of granite is unique, with random veining and color variations. It is very durable, resistant to heat, and less prone to scratches. Granite is porous and thus requires periodic sealing to prevent stains and liquid absorption. Its natural origin brings an authentic richness to spaces that is unmatched by synthetic materials.
  • Marble Benchtops: Marble is known for its luxurious finish and distinct veining. It is more porous and softer than granite or quartz, making it susceptible to staining, scratching, and etching from acidic substances. Marble requires more maintenance, including regular sealing, to keep its surface pristine and damage-free. Despite these demands, marble remains a premium choice for its aesthetic appeal and the elegant touch it adds to interiors.
  • Daily Cleaning: Use a soft cloth or sponge with warm water and a mild detergent. Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners that can damage the stone’s surface. For marble, especially, use pH-neutral cleaning solutions to prevent etching.
  • Sealing: Granite and marble benchtops benefit from being sealed to protect their porous surfaces from staining. Sealing should be done at least once a year, but the frequency can vary based on the usage and stone type. Quartz does not require sealing due to its non-porous nature.
  • Preventing Scratches and Damages: Although stone is a hard material, it can still be scratched by harder substances. Use cutting boards to avoid direct contact with knives. Avoid dragging pots, pans, or appliances across the benchtop. Use coasters under glasses and bottles to prevent etching and stains on marble surfaces.
  • Heat Protection: While granite and quartz are heat resistant, sudden changes in temperature or direct heat exposure can cause cracks. Use trivets or heat pads to place hot items directly from the stove or oven.
  • Durability: Stone benchtops, particularly granite and quartz, are incredibly durable and can last for decades when properly maintained. This makes them a worthwhile long-term investment for any home.
  • Aesthetic Value: Stone benchtops offer a unique natural beauty that can significantly enhance the interior design of your kitchen or bathroom. The timeless appeal of stone, especially marble, can also complement various decor styles from classic to modern.
  • Resale Value: Homes with stone benchtops often see a return on investment through increased property values. They are a sought-after feature for home buyers, potentially making your home more attractive on the market.
  • Cost vs. Benefit: While stone benchtops generally come at a higher upfront cost compared to other materials like laminate or tile, their longevity, and low maintenance requirements can offer cost savings over time. Additionally, their natural aesthetic and durability provide an unmatched value that synthetic materials simply cannot replicate.

Stone benchtops are an excellent choice for those looking to combine aesthetics with functionality in their kitchen or bathroom. Their enduring popularity is a testament to their value as both a functional fixture and a design element.
