Frequently Asked Questions
It really depends on the purpose of your kitchen and what kind of look you are trying to achieve.
Polyurethane kitchens are a bit sleeker as you can achieve a very minimalistic look with shark nose (finger pull) handles. It also offers greater flexibility with colours as you can have it made in any dulux colour of choice, in your choice of either a gloss or satin finish. The only downside to poly is that if it chips, you either have to replace the whole door or put up with seeing the raw MDF board beneath the chip.
Laminex kitchens offer more in the way of textures and finishes whilst still offering a large range of colours. Laminex is also more durable than polyurethane as it it is more likely to scratch than chip, which is far less noticeable.
Most home owner/occupiers opt to go with polyurethane because it looks nicer and they know they will look after their own home.
For rental properties we usually recommend laminex over poly for maintenance and durability as your tenants will never look after your home in the same way that you do.
Another alternative is to have a mix of both as you can achieve a really nice designer look by combining the two together. See our Portfolio page for examples of melamine, poly and combination two-tone kitchens.
Custom cabinets are made to measure, meaning they come in whatever size they need to, to suit any kitchen design.

Trades, Delivery & Installation
The stonemasons we use are skilled at joining, book matching and mixing precise glue colours so that your joins are less visible.
Layered joins offer greater corner strength but they are more noticeable than mitred edge joins, positioned in the middle of the flat surface.
In saying that, our stonemasons are nothing short of amazing when it comes to joining stone so even a layered join will be hardly noticeable on your benchtop.
NOTE: Layered joins work best on colours with a consistent, fine grain. i.e. The larger the detail, the more noticeable a layered join will be. Speak to a member of our team who can recommend the best option based on your chosen colour.
For best results, use a clean rag mop on floors and a soft cloth for other surfaces.
NOTE: Some manufacturers (like Caesarstone or Smart Stone) offer a complimentary cleaning kit when you register your warranty online. Check the manufacturer’s website for details.
Neolith, on the other hand, is 100% heat proof. You can literally take a roasting hot pan out of the oven, put it directly on your Neolith benchtop and nothing will happen to it.
