What kind of laminated benchtops do you offer?

We offer a range of sustainably sourced benchtops that are designed to provide a cost-effective, long-lasting solution that can withstand the daily grind that benchtops are subjected to. Some of the most common materials that we sell include Merbau and Red gum which have their own unique set of characteristics.

  • Merbau

Merbau is an excellent material for benchtops due to its durability and natural beauty. This hardwood is resistant to both rot and insect damage, making it a great choice for high-use areas like kitchens. Additionally, merbau’s rich colour and grain patterns can add warmth and character to any space. When properly sealed, a merbau benchtop can last for many years with minimal upkeep.

  • Red Gum

Red Gum is a good material for bench tops because it is very hard and dense. It has a high natural lustre and because of its density it does not require a sealer. Additionally, red gum is very easy to clean and maintain. It is also heat resistant, making it ideal for use in kitchens.


What size are your hardwood benchtops?

Our range of hardwood bench tops are 620mm wide and 33 mm thick whereas the Merbau are 640mm wide and 30mm thick subject to suppliers.


Which edge profiles can you provide?

We supply workable timber options, which means that our kitchen benchtops can be shaped into different edge profiles, from square to pencil round to 90° types, by you or your installer. Our staff can walk you through the options that can be applied to each hardwood. So let our team create a custom kitchen benchtop to suit your needs.


How long do kitchen benchtops last for?

There is no definitive answer to how long kitchen benchtops will last for. However, with proper care and maintenance, your benchtop can last for many years. Here are a few tips to help you prolong the life of your kitchen benchtop:

  • Avoid placing hot pans or pots directly on the surface of the benchtop. Use a trivet or potholder instead.
  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Use cutting boards when chopping food. People often think that a wooden benchtop is a license to cut your food on any surface – this couldn’t be further from the truth. If you treat your benchtop as a cutting board, you can be sure that it is going to deteriorate quickly.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on the bench top. Stick to mild soaps and warm water instead.

With proper care, your kitchen benchtop can last for many years to come. Enjoy your new kitchen and make it a space that you love!


Why is hardwood laminate a great choice for benchtops?

Hardwood laminate is a popular choice for kitchen bench tops because it is durable, easy to clean and maintain, and has a natural beauty that enhances the overall look of the kitchen. Laminate is also available in a wide range of colours and patterns, so you can find the perfect match for your personal style and décor. Plus, hardwood laminate is a relatively affordable option when compared to other materials such as granite or marble.
