Having our kitchen fitted next week and just found out that the granite supplier cannot get a big enough slab to fit the kitchen without a join (which we'd prefer not to have). We'd need a length of around 3.8m but the maximum granite length is apparently 3.6m?
We've been googling and it appears that polished concrete may be an option - has anyone else faced this problem and successfully addressed it?
We have a long run if silestone in the kitchen and had the same problem. We actually made a feature of it so the surface is made up of 3 parts and the central piece (where the sink/drainer is) is thicker than the piece on either side. It's difficult to explain but I'll post a picture when I get out of the bath! In a previous house we had granite with a join and over time one piece dropped a few mm lower than the other piece.
