5 advantages of granite for modern home renovations

Whether you’re bringing a new, modern look to a period property or refreshing a contemporary building, you should definitely consider using granite. Beautiful and practical, this traditional material is undergoing a renaissance. One of the toughest materials around, granite is an ideal choice for any home that needs to be easy to maintain and care for and a joy to live in. That it’s a show-stoppingly beautiful stone prized by top interior designers is simply a bonus!

1. Modern trends lean on beautiful natural materials

O74407325d3b0ed856ff225406ae9379fver the last ten years, we’ve seen top designers turn to natural materials, including granite, again and again. As each wave of innovative design appears, the use of beautiful natural materials has been a constant feature. By featuring granite in your home, you can be confident that you’ll be ahead of the curve while also creating a home you’ll love for years.

2. It’s incredibly durable and practical

No need to compromise! By choosing granite you can have a home that is both beautiful and useful, as the William Morris quote goes. Stone flooring can withstand the passage of thousands of feet each day (just look at the lobby in the Empire State Building!); granite kitchen worktops are easy to clean and hard to damage; and granite tiles are waterproof and tough, ideal for bathrooms, wetrooms and mudrooms.

3. It’s customised to your specifications

Modern design isn’t uniform, so it helps to have pieces that have been individually crafted to fit your space. At Surrey Marble and Granite, our expert stoneworkers make worktops, staircases and other items in our factory. That means that we’re able to make the exact piece you need, whether it’s a sleek black granite kitchen worktop with a high gloss finish or a pale grey table top that looks like it was found in the woods fully formed.

4. There are more colours than you might think

Many people imagcolourfuline granite in stone shades, from light grey to midnight black. In fact, thanks to variations in the Earth’s crust, granite can be found in a wide range of colours, from blue to pink and green to yellow, as well as all shades from white to black. Granite is found around the world and different quarries produce stone with different patterns. Thanks to modern transport technologies, you can find the exact shade and pattern you want.

5. You’re statement pieces will be a charming talking point

Granite is a beautiful stone and each slab has unique patterns. No two slabs are entirely the same, which means that when you use granite in your home you create a truly individual look. Whether you prefer the subtle, practical beauty of granite bathroom tiles or the bold statement of a granite table, your visitors are sure to comment on the quality and glamour of your home.

Applying sealant to granite worktops is a pretty easy process. You will pretty much just be painting a slab of granite like you would anything else; just start with a small area, and work your way out. One thing to note is that the sealant is toxic, and you will want to be wearing gloves, be working in a ventilated area, and possibly a mask as well. After you finish sealing the granite worktops, then you should be almost finished installing your brand new granite worktops.

Whilst looking for a subject to write about this week I stumbled across an image of inca stonework which you can see here. I was immediately struck by the amazing precision of their work. After further reading, it became apparent that the Incas generally worked in stone shaped into trapeziums and would use stone of many types, from limestone to granite. Imagine what an Incan Granite worktop may look like!! How the incas managed to cut their stone is still a mystery, as there were no iron tools at this time. It is most […]

Limestone is easy to care for making it a great choice for kitchen worktops, bathroom tiles and flooring indoors and out. Ideally, limestone should be professionally sealed. As well as making it easier to clean and care for, this ensures that no bacteria or dirt can get trapped in the surface and reduced the chance of scratches and stains.
