Granite Solutions Project Planner
 

Everything you need to start planning your project is right here, from sample layouts to photo galleries to helpful hints.

Planning and measuring for Benissimo Granite Solutions™ is so simple because components are specifically designed to fit most standard counter tops with little or no cutting. Unlike standard granite field tile, Granite Solutions™ components are slightly oversized to help square out uneven walls or counters.
 



U-Shaped Kitchen LayoutGetting Started

Most counters include one or more of the following configurations: L-shaped, island, and galley/bar. Choose the ones that fit your project and find the dimensions closest to yours. We'll provide a detailed layout along with how many of each component you'll need to get started. Note: For U-shaped counters, use two L-shaped layouts.

The Next Step
Take your layout(s) to your nearest Benissimo retailer for pricing and availability. They can also answer any questions you may have, help with custom or angled layouts, and even recommend an installer.

 
Important Tips and Hints
1. Note where cabinets meet walls or other barriers - this will affect the components needed.
2. Cuts should be made in the center portions across a sink or stove, if possible.
3. Bars and overhangs require additional support - see Installation for more details
4. Most jobs require at least one additional bullnose and field tile.
 
 

 
This is by far the most common kitchen layout. Take your longest edge (3' to 12' along top) to find the layout and component counts for your project. All examples show standard 24” countertops with 90 degree installations.

Kitchen islands are a must-have in new and remodeled kitchens. Choose the depth of your island: 2 feet, 3 feet, or 4 feet. Layouts are shown with lengths up to 8 feet,
 
NOTE: Islands with a bar or overhang will require additional structural support. Please see Installation for complete details.
