Choose standard thickness – standard thickness are 20mm & 30mm, you don’t get thicker than this. We can build up the edges or mitre the edges to make them look thicker – more expensive because they are labour intensive.

Simple edge profiles – standard chamfer edge profiles are more economical than complex ones which can escalate the price.

Colours – plainer colours are budget friendly whereas, highly patterned/multiple colour combinations are more expensive.

Use offcuts – ask if the offcuts can be used for splashbacks rather than ordering additional slabs. This will also provide a more cohesive look. Sometimes suppliers have remnants which are a great deal cheaper for a smaller space.

Budget carefully – make a plan and stick to it as last minute changes can incur additional costs.

Promotions or discounts – sometimes a bargain can be found in a promotional event, or an end of line selection that can bring the costs down further.  We often have sales on various colour ranges
