The Versatility of Granite Worktops

Granite Worktop

The hardness, high density and low porosity of granite make granite worktops and granite stone tiles perfect for use in high-traffic kitchen areas, like flooring, tiling and other kitchen surfaces. Extracted from locations around the world, these highly-polished kitchen worktops and the matching stone tiles are always of the highest possible quality and make the perfect addition to any kitchen ideas.

The high durability and functionality of granite worktops make them, and the stone tiles, ideal for use as kitchen surfaces, or as stone worktops in reception areas, delicatessen shops, etc. In other words, wherever a durable, high-quality stone worktop is needed, granite is the perfect answer. As granite is frost resistant, these stone worktops can, in addition to making the best kitchen worktops around, also be used safely for various outdoor purposes.

Depending on quarry locations, these stone worktops usually display medium to perhaps slightly coarse, grainy textures. Some kitchen worktops may incorporate larger, pebble-like effects. The colour of any granite worktop, ranging from pastel creams, pinks, greens, yellows, blues and greys to red or black, will also depend on quarry locations. Obviously, this allows a granite worktop to fit in perfectly with a variety of kitchen ideas.

Granite kitchen surfaces require minimal care. Although using a chopping board is advised when cutting on a kitchen worktop, scratching a stone worktop is highly unlikely even without it. Spills of lemon juice, soda pop, vinegar or other acidic fluids should be wiped up immediately, but will not stain a stone worktop permanently.

Slight discolouration of the kitchen surface through heat may occur only if extremely hot pans are placed directly onto the kitchen worktop for prolonged periods. This can easily be buffed with fine steel wool. Any glue-like residues may be scraped off a granite worktop using a credit card or razor blade.

Easy to clean with water and a mild detergent, a granite kitchen worktop can be polished with a soft cloth to maintain a beautiful, shiny kitchen surface for years. When it comes to kitchen ideas, a granite kitchen surface will undoubtedly add elegance and value. Call us now on 0208 216 2051 or contact us here.
