Stone worktops, often combined with matching stone tiles used for flooring, splash-backs, etc, are among the most popular kitchen ideas on offer today. It hardly matters whether granite, quartz or marble is chosen, a polished stone kitchen worktop combined with matching stone tiles provides the ultimate, most stylish finish to any kitchen; enhancing the appearance of kitchens with the magnificent elegance of a shining, hard wearing kitchen surface.
The granite, marble or quartz used for stone worktops, as well as corresponding stone tiles, are quarried at locations around the world, from Asia and Africa to Europe and South America, and every area will provide a differently coloured and textured stone, with no slabs ever being the same as another one, ensuring every single stone worktop is completely unique.
The range of possible colours, including black, shades of red, blue and green, as well as shades of grey, yellow, pink and various pastel creams, granite worktops are available in makes it easy to match a granite kitchen worktop to any kitchen’s design, whether this involves ultra modern, traditional or other kitchen ideas.
Although the potential expense of installing a new stone worktop can be a little off-putting to begin with, these kitchen worktops can and should be seen as a valuable lifetime investment. The advantages of having quartz, marble or granite worktops are by no means restricted to appearance. Stone kitchen worktops have exceptionally hardwearing qualities. A granite worktop, for example, is almost impossible to damage through chipping or scratching and highly heat resistant.
Because the surfaces of these kitchen worktops are sealed, they are hygienic and stain resistant. Even vinegar, citric juices and soda pop have a hard time staining a stone kitchen worktop, as long as spills are cleaned up straight away. Care demands are minimal for all of today’s stone worktops and kitchen ideas, and a granite worktop provides a unique kitchen surface with minimum maintenance requirements. Cleaning a granite worktop regularly with a pH-neutral cleaner keeps this kitchen surface glossy for years, although once every few years, granite worktops and kitchen surfaces may require re-sealing.
