What is Kitchen Benchtop Resurfacing?


Over the years, you may have heard about Granite Transformations, but do you know what makes us so unique?

Don't Replace It, Just Reface It!

Stone benchtop resurfacing is a versatile method aimed at revitalising and upgrading the appearance of countertops. This transformative process entails the application of a new layer of 7mm zero silica engineered stone over virtually any existing countertop surface. The appeal of stone benchtop resurfacing lies in its cost-effectiveness and efficiency, offering a refreshed aesthetic for kitchens or workspaces without the need for extensive construction or the removal of the original countertop.

Unlike traditional replacement methods, stone benchtop resurfacing allows for a wide range of design possibilities, enabling homeowners to choose from various stone finishes, textures and colours. This flexibility in design, combined with the advantages of affordability and reduced downtime, makes it an attractive option for those seeking a renewed and upgraded look for their countertops without the logistical challenges associated with full replacement. 

Zero Silica Stone

The stone industry has experienced a major shift since the Federal Government’s ban on crystalline silica in engineered stone benchtops from 1 July 2024.

At Granite Transformations, we thrive on innovation. With over 28 years of expertise in kitchen and bathroom renovations, we have adapted to these new regulations with our latest product: zero silica engineered stone.

This cutting-edge material not only complies with the new standards but also provides unmatched durability, beauty, and versatility for your home projects. Discover the future of stone craftsmanship with Granite Transformations’ zero silica engineered stone.

Considering a kitchen makeover? More often than not, kitchen cabinets remain in excellent working condition, while benchtops, doors, and panels start to show signs of aging. While replacing the entire kitchen can be a daunting and expensive task, you can give it a brand-new look at a fraction of the price with stone benchtops.


Our benchtops are designed to be overlaid on your existing kitchen benchtops, saving you time and money on demolition. The installation process is quick and hassle-free, usually taking only 1-2 days. You won’t have to worry about any inconvenience or downtime during the renovation process.


Our granite benchtop overlay is made from high-quality materials that are durable and designed to last for years. They are resistant to scratches, stains, and heat, making them an ideal choice for busy kitchens.


Not only that, they come in a wide range of colours and textures, from traditional white, grey and black in our stone range to our more elegant marble collection for that luxury kitchen feel.


Unlike traditional granite, our benchtops require minimal maintenance and are easy to clean. They don’t require any sealing, polishing or reconditioning, making them a low-maintenance option.

With Granite Transformations, you can transform your kitchen into a stunning, modern space without breaking the bank. Imagine cooking and entertaining in your beautiful new kitchen in no time.

The Top that Fits On Top

Benchtop resurfacing provides homeowners with a quick and easy solution to transform their kitchen or laundry. We pride ourselves on our ability to resurface almost anything, including laminate, stone and timber, with outstanding results.

One of the most significant benefits of our resurfacing service is that you can easily square off bullnose laminate edges. This feature is particularly useful for those who are worried about the outdated appearance of their edges, as resurfacing provides a simple solution to transform them into a sleek and modern square edge.

We also understand that modifications to benchtops are often necessary to create a functional and practical kitchen or space. Modifications are a breeze! For instance, if you want to extend your breakfast bar, we can easily widen or lengthen your existing benchtop before adding the stone overlay.

It is also easy for us to remove timber beading edges, that were previously used to frame laminate benchtops. This feature is particularly beneficial for those who are looking for a more modern look.

Resurface Tiled Splashbacks

For a complete transformation of your kitchen, we offer the option to resurface your splashback with the same high-quality stone used for our benchtops. Our process even allows us to go over existing tiles, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming removal.


Resurfacing your splashback not only provides a seamless and modern look but also eliminates the hassle of dirty grout lines. It’s a clever way to showcase your beautiful new stone surface.


However, if you prefer to keep your current splashback, don’t worry! Our installation process doesn’t require removing the existing benchtop, meaning your splashback will remain intact and undamaged.


This innovative approach ensures that you won’t be forced to redo your splashback, as is often the case with other renovation methods. Our process is mess-free, waste-free, and hassle-free, giving you a stress-free renovation experience. How amazing is that?

Add a Benchtop Waterfall

You can also consider the option of installing stunning stone waterfalls alongside your existing kitchen end panels. This innovative design feature creates a modern, elegant, and timeless touch to finish off your kitchen island or breakfast bar.


Waterfall benchtops are a popular and stylish trend in kitchen design, offering a seamless and uninterrupted flow from the benchtop down to the floor. This unique feature creates a visual focal point in your kitchen and adds a touch of luxury to the overall design.


Not only do waterfall benchtops look visually stunning, but they also offer functional benefits, such as hiding unsightly seams, providing extra support to your benchtop, and acting as a barrier to prevent spills from reaching the floor. These are especially popular in our marble range. 

What About the Cabinet Doors?
