Colonial White Granite kitchen benchtop

Pull Tab style kitchen handles?

Just take into account, whilst i would always rebate the handles in (or cut the laminate edge upto the handle), i would also forewarn the end user, that it…

Pros & Cons of Bathroom Basins

Has anyone used Roxx Stone for their bench tops?

As above. I've seen this stuff around, but it hasn't worked out any better in pricing, then a 20mm thick top.
