Granite Worktops

ARGUABLY THE MOST CLASSIC OF WORKTOP CHOICES

Granite is a hard and durable working surface with great character and individuality. Its high scratch resistance makes it a real workhorse in the kitchen and will serve you well for many years with the right care. Being a natural material, each slab is unique in its colour and veining, but it is also porous so susceptible to staining.

IDEAL USE

A very versatile material that can be used anywhere in the kitchen. As it’s stone, it is naturally cold; great for making your pastry but not so nice on a breakfast bar first thing in the morning!

IDEAL STYLE

It provides a really luxurious look and feel. It comes in highly polished or honed finishes, so suits traditional and modern kitchens. It can be very eye-catching, perfect for a stunning central island.

DURABILITY

Granite is hard and resistant to heat and scratches but must be looked after. Granite is a porous material so we recommend buying a treated granite, this will vastly improve its stain resistance.

MAINTENANCE

Your granite should arrive having been sealed already so there is no initial treatment required. Simply clean with warm soapy water or cleaning kit provided. Darker, highly polished, granite tops can be prone to showing smears and smudges easily, so some element of polishing after cleaning will be required.
