Topic: Kitchen counter top - please help

I visited the modular kitchen and they told don't put the kitchen granite until they finish the cabinets. Once finished you could put 20 mm slabs on its top unlike 40 mm we used to put normally. My question

1. 20 mm slabs are porous as we put for floors how can it be put for kitchen slabs where water will always be there. There is 40 mm black /green one which is available which we use as counter tops but modular they use 20 mm slabs. They mentioned they will come with us and select the slab size ranging from 65 rs to acrylic/imported one which cost around 265 rs etc.

2. In modular they never use the wall in holding the slabs ,as slabs are just laid on the top of cabinets. My masory saying it cannot hold 20 mm or 40 mm slabs so need 9 inch wall on both ends. I am confused as i am planning to do with my carpenter so need to know whether walls are needed and any precaution carpenter need to take care to hold those slabs.

Dear Sam
            1. Purchase kitchen working slab top according to your choice.
    2. For support of slab make either side support  of 4.5'' instead of 9'' or make a cantilever i.e. slab  portion at least 3'' in wall.The other method for holding the slab is to provide MS angle under slab which are grouted in wall.

Hi Sam,
generally we use 20mm thick granite slab only for kitchen top and on the outer edge
we paste another 20mm thick granite strip and do the edge polishing so that it looks like a 40mm thick slab this is very much in practise.
