Join in Caesarstone

The majority of slabs are 3000mm long so having a join is normal but it shouldn't have cracked.

Using a benchtop for a study desk - Where to find?

I can do a custom made top at any size. Do you have the exact sizes and colour of the laminate?

Pantry Next To Cooktop

A narrow pantry internally of around 300mm still works well. Sure you cant store big cereal boxes but most other things fit. Its worth considering.

Waterfall Edges on Island - Yay or Nay?

The stone tops would have to be manufactured with a waterfall at a later date in mind. If they are not adding a waterfall after would be almost impossible.

Waterfalls have absolutely no benefit on dishwashers at all.
BUT, I think they look amazing on an island unit.

It wont make any difference but its not how it should be done. I wouldn't be happy and would ask them to do it again.

No one gets solid 40mm. All 40mm stone in every kitchen is only 40mm at the front edges.

You should check the fridge manual for minimum spaces.
I normally allow 25mm on each side.

Unfortunately all builders are different. So builders allow there contractors to bill you directly for changes and other builders put huge mark ups on.

They are not a standard profile so they wont have a name.
They look like a moulding has been added to the outside edge of the drawer front.
