Granite Worktops

One of the hardest materials on earth, granite was formed millions of years ago. Worktops made from this material are extremely hard wearing and will not scratch from normal use. They’re also easy to clean and maintain, making them ideal for kitchens or bathrooms. Strong, durable with a polished finish, granite worktops are a very popular choice for those seeking luxurious and beautiful kitchen and bathroom features.

Drainer grooves under mount sinks along with curved finishes and perfectly matching up stands and window boards are also available.

Outstanding resistance


Compared with marble, granite is more acid-resistant. Lemons, vinegars and some cleaning products can be used without harming the material, which means that granite is better suited for worktops in kitchens and bathrooms where frequent cooking and cleaning takes place.

If you want furniture in your kitchen to look luxurious, the best choice is a granite worktop. Granite makes any room interior look great.

Countertops are not only perfect for preparing food but they are also heat-resistant. So you won’t have to worry about placing hot spots on the worktop surface. Furthermore, granite is resistant to abrasion, bacteria, lemon acid, coffee and tea stains and wine stains. Even if the surface gets dirty it can be easily cleaned and doesn’t lose its shine.

Variety of colours


Two pieces of natural granite will never look exactly the same; veining and colour shade can vary significantly from one piece to another. Different patterns can bring luxury to any design. It is a prestige material that’s used in many interior projects to produce an impression of elegance and long-lasting quality.

Granite is the most popular natural stone countertop material, due to its beauty and durability. It’s a great option when choosing a surface material that matches your cabinets and appliances.
This stone is available in variety of colours, including white, brown, black, grey, beige, blue or red. White worktops are striking when paired with cherry wood cabinets or used in small kitchen spaces to create a more open environment. Black and grey countertops give off a dramatic appearance. This combination is often best suited to contemporary kitchens with a lot of light, and combined with wooden or white cabinets.
Blue or red granite countertops are a less common design choice. However, they can create an eye-catching, exotic statement when paired with light coloured cabinets. Everything depends on your imagination, taste and style.

Bathroom countertops


Granite is available in tile or slabs, which are ideally suited to bathrooms that are used daily. Tiles are small and modular and can be adapted to nearly any surface. Slabs are a practical design choice, and add a timeless sense of style to any space. Your bathroom features will be exposed to everything from toothpaste to make-up and will get covered in soap, grime and water puddles. As such it’s important to choose a countertop material which is durable, stain-resistant, can be easily cleaned and retains its natural beauty; this is what makes granite the perfect bathroom feature material.

Granite worktops have a million advantages. They are strong, reliable, solid and don’t mind getting wet. Since they’re completely natural, their environmental impact is limited. They can also be tinted in nearly any colour. We can suggest plenty of ways in which to style your bathroom around this beautiful natural stone.
