Join in benchtop
I'm a newbie to this forum, and only just read your post.
HMR benchtop boards only come in 3.6m lengths.
However, the vinyl covering comes in long rolls.
We do have the shadow line/ support bench in the kitchen - both on the island and along the wall. It is the same laminate as the under bench cupboards.
Looking at our…

Cavity for Fridge
Yep 30mm either side.

CAESAR STONE OR GRANITE??
If budget is not an issue, i would go with granite, you would pay more for quality and certainly look better as it is natural stone. I guess price won't lie , most of…
