We supply and install granite and quartz all over UK covering the major counties. And we understand how important it is for every homeowner to get the best when it comes to picking up the right granite or quartz for your home.
We all want options, a lot of options when we decide something. Variety is a must during decision-making. Deciding countertops are no exception. You have a lot of choices to make, and every choice matters. Two of the most important and essential choices are which material you need for your countertop and how your countertop should look like. If you make the wrong decision for either, you’ll end up regretting your countertop surface, or you’ll have to remodel it again.
However, regretting your kitchen surface means sigh wistfully and groaning in disgust every time you see your worktop surface, or remodelling it because it cracked or scratched and it just won’t do anymore. We don’t want that, both of the mentioned results are tiring and they cost a lot of time, energy and money. We’re here to show you what your best option is. Consider it our helping hand.
Granite: Old and New
Granite is a very old mineral that can be found in the Earth’s crust; it is a mineral that has existed for thousands of years. However, it is very rare and only found in mines in Brazil, China, or India. This Earth-based rock is also the second strongest mineral found in the planet, the first being diamonds. Along with that information, granite is considered new. In the countertop-installation industry, we never recognized granite as a material for worktop surfaces, nor did we acknowledge using it as tiles. In our updated day and age, we explored our options and decided that granite is the best alternative for worktops and here is why:
This natural stone can handle immeasurable pressure and heat. It is scratch resistant and it doesn’t absorb any residue to its core, causing it to dull. This smooth rock does not get contaminated by fungal or bacterial infection, which makes it 100% healthy and sanitary. It adds value to your home, giving it a sophisticated, elegant look. It, also, blends in with any of its surroundings, regardless of its appearance. It is very easy to clean, no bleach or special mixture needed! All you need is a rag, lukewarm water and some mild detergent, if the stain or spill is rough and brash. Finally, you don’t need to stress yourself out with remodelling because granite is a lasting mineral. No need to change it again, it’ll continue for a long time, looking bright and shiny like the very first day!
It’s all about the Colour
Something that is adored about this stone is its scheme. Granite comes in all shades and hues; there isn’t a colour you won’t find! If you choose a colour that is plain and simple, the countertop will blend in with its surroundings, making it the final piece of the puzzle. If you choose a bold and daring shade, the countertop will contrast and stand out with its surroundings, tying the room together.
Whatever you decide, we suggest you take your time, especially concerning the colour. If you need any help, please contact us, we are more than happy to assist.
