What are the benefits of benchtop resurfacing?

Granite Transformations are the pioneers of benchtop resurfacing in Australia. Our products have been tried and tested for over 25 years, in over 1.5 million kitchens worldwide.


 Benchtop overlay, otherwise known as benchtop resurfacing, can dramatically improve the appearance of an existing benchtop, making it look brand new. Resurfacing a benchtop is much faster to install and a more cost-effective option than replacing the entire benchtop. It also reduces unnecessary building waste, making it better for the environment. Independent studies have shown that our surfaces outperform almost all other products on the market.

Our surfaces are one of the most economical ways to give that dull kitchen a fresh new look. A benchtop installed by Granite Transformations are the best bench surface because:

1. They are produced using the highest quality compound of granite, quartz, recycled glass and other naturally occurring minerals sourced from around the world.  

2. They are made in Australia using the highest safety standards to protect our employees.

3. Measuring at only 7mm in thickness they our thin and lightweight but also incredibly durable.

4. They are scratch, stain and heat resistant.

5. They outperform most other benchtop surfaces (see comparison table above).

6. They can be installed quickly and easily, in as little as a day.

7. They come in a wide selection of modern stone benchtop colours, including our popular marble range.

8. Environmentally they are a better kitchen surface – because they are laid over existing surfaces, they result in less landfill than new benchtops.

9. We are Australia’s original benchtop resurfacing company with over 25 years’ experience and over 1 million benchtop installations worldwide.

How is a Granite Transformations stone benchtop overlay applied?

A stone benchtop overlay is typically applied using a process called “lamination,” where the thin layer of stone is bonded to the existing benchtop using a special adhesive. This is installed by professional tradespeople in as little as 1-2 days with minimal mess and fuss.

How long does it take to install a stone benchtop overlay?

The time it takes to install a stone benchtop overlay can vary depending on the size and condition of the existing benchtop, but it typically takes a 1-3 days to install after taking accurate measurements and having the bench safely cut to size in our state-of-the-art Sydney-based factory.

Is stone heat and stain resistant?

Our products have been tried and tested for over 25 years, in over 1.5 million kitchens worldwide. Our stone is one of the most stain resistant products on the market.

Granite Transformation surfaces are heat resistant and not affected by temperatures lower than 180C. Like all stone material, Granite Transformations surfaces can be damaged by sudden and rapid heat changes. (thermal shock) so we always recommend that hot pots and pans never be placed directly on a Granite Transformations surface, but onto a chopping board or heat trivet. 

Is stone safe for food preparation?

Absolutely. Granite Transformations surfaces were originally designed with your kitchen in mind. Click here more information on the safety of our products.

Granite Transformations surfaces are non-porous and once installed in the home are in no way harmful to you or your family. Our surfaces are completely safe for domestic use and comply with the strictest local and international safety standards for consumer use.

Any health risk lies in the process and manufacture of the material, if performed in breach of legislated safety requirements, and not in the surfaces themselves. 

How can I maintain my stone benchtop overlay?

Granite Transformations require very little maintenance – simply wipe with a soft, damp cloth and any pH neutral liquid detergent. You can access our Care and Maintenance guide here.


Can you resurface a laminate benchtop?

One of the most common questions we are asked is ‘can you resurface laminate benchtops?’ The answer is yes, most definitely! Most types of benchtops, including laminate, wood, stone or tile can be overlaid with stone. The existing surface should be flat, level and in reasonable condition.

Stone benchtop resurfacing is the number 1 method of updating the look of your outdated kitchen benchtop.

Can benchtop overlay be used on rounded edges?

Yes! The benefit of stone resurfacing is that we can seamlessly install a square-edged stone surface over an outdated curved or round-edged benchtop. Furthermore, benchtop overlay can be used to create a waterfall edge effect for a stunning modern look.

Can I change the shape of my benchtop with stone overlay?

Yes! Many people do not realise it is possible to modify the shape of your existing benchtop when undertaking Granite Transformations kitchen makeover. Stone overlay can be used on both brand-new or existing benchtops and the shape of the existing benchtop can be changed or modified to optimise the use of the kitchen space. Whether you want a bigger sink, a different-sized cooktop or the inclusion of an island bench, this can all be achieved with stone benchtop resurfacing.

Do I have to keep the same edge as my existing benchtop?

Our resurfacing will hide the outdated bullnose edge of your bench and replace it with a modern square-edge effect.

How do you choose the right benchtop colour for a kitchen?

The benchtop colour you choose will depend on number of factors, but primarily whether you are renovating to sell or renovating for your family. If it is to sell, we recommend a classic white stone benchtop, which will appeal to most buyers. However, if you plan to stay in the home for many years, you should choose a kitchen benchtop colour to match your personal style and taste.

Marble is on trend and is especially popular where you have a simple benchtop shape. You can also look at the current kitchen colour trends of 2024, which tend toward more natural tones.

Explore our range of colours in marble.

Should I choose a marble kitchen benchtop?

Marble gives a luxury kitchen look with a sense of sophistication and elegance.

Traditional marble is softer than granite, so more prone to scratching, and is too expensive for most families with a limited kitchen renovation budget.

However, marble kitchens have become more popular in the past few years, and we believe the trend for marble benchtops will continue to grow for many years to come. This is largely due to improvements in technology, in particular engineered marble overlay, which is more durable and cost-effective than traditional marble.

If you can push your budget a little further marble resurfacing is our favourite choice for your kitchen. View our marble range here.

However, marble is not the right look for every kitchen and our kitchen designer can advise you on what would best work in your home. Organise a free quote and design consultation in your home today.  

Can Granite Transformations surfaces be used for other purposes?

Absolutely! Granite Transformations overlay is not limited to your benchtop, it can also be laid directly over your kitchen splashback, eliminating the need to remove and redo tiling, creating a smooth and easy-to-clean splashback surface.  It can also be used on walls and floors, laundry, home office, outdoor BBQ areas and bathroom vanities.

What is kitchen splashback?

The kitchen splashback, or backsplash, is the area or wall between the kitchen benchtop and the upper kitchen cabinets.  This area is prone to splashing from cooking, especially the area behind the cooktop or sink. Today’s kitchen splashbacks are often an aesthetic feature of a kitchen renovation.

What is the best splashback material?

There are many different types of kitchen splashback. Some popular splashback options include tiles, hardened glass, timber or stainless steel. However, a very popular option is to match the backsplash with the benchtop, which can easily be achieved with stone overlay. Given the overlay is just 7mm in thickness it can just as easily be installed directly over any existing splashback for a mess-free, quick and easy alternative. Not only does it create a modern look kitchen, but it is also very easy to clean and maintain.


Granite Transformations stone surfaces are not limited to benchtop resurfacing, but are commonly used for kitchen splashbacks. Popular options include white stone overlay or marble overlay for a more luxurious kitchen.

Are your products covered by a warranty?

A Granite Transformations benchtop will last for many years with proper care and maintenance. We stand by the quality of our products by offering a 10 year warranty on or stone and marble surfaces.
