    Benefits of Granite Worktops

    Granite worktops offer unparalleled benefits when installed in your home or commercial property. Architects, builders, interior designers, and homeowners loudly sing the praises of granite for its many uses, as well as the bevy of other superior advantages in using this particular stone building material. The outdoor and indoor uses are nearly unlimited, allowing the most creative of minds to create a unique look that will be appreciated by many others for generations to come. While there are certainly other forms of stone building materials available, few, if any, can match the usefulness, practicality, and popularity of granite.

    First of all, granite is by far the number one interior building material chosen for interior design projects. Granite use is more than a mere trend that will die off sometime in the future. Granite is a classic tradition, offering a wide range of shapes, patterns, and colours, as well as versatility; granite worktops are capable of matching any décor, appliance, sink, and cabinet. Granite is and will remain the choice stone material for a long time to come.

    Second of all, granite is an extremely strong stone. We are talking as hard and strong as diamonds. Because of its weight and strength, granite is denser and more durable than similar stone materials. It is resistant to scratches and stains, making it the ideal choice for worktops in any room you choose. You do not have to worry about easy chipping and scuffing, scratching it with a knife should you forego the cutting board, or even ruining it with marks from hot pots or pans. Because of its extraordinarily heat resistance granite worktops are the perfect choice for any kitchen.

    The third thing to keep in mind about granite is that they are sanitary, especially when compared to other common building materials such as wood. Cleanliness is especially important in rooms such as the bathroom and kitchen. This is great news for families with children and those who are health and germ conscious. Granite worktops installed in these rooms help to ensure the cleanliness of the kitchen and bathroom. Granite is somewhat porous in its raw form; however, once it is polished and sealed, the shiny glaze blocks out germs and bacteria. Then, all you need is some soap and warm water, along with a non-abrasive cloth, to clean your worktops  daily to maintain a high shine and clean environment.

    Because granite is such a popular material, the high demand has made it affordable building material. Its elegance, versatility, plethora of colours and options, and ready availability has helped to ensure that granite prices remain affordable. That is just one of the many reasons granite worktops have become such a popular feature in homes and commercial properties.

    The final benefit of granite worktops to consider is that granite offers unsurpassed uniqueness. Patterns and colours vary based on the region in which the specific stone was formed and what elements are contained within. It is easy to find unique colour and pattern combinations to accent your décor with class, sophistication, and elegance.

You may even have heard that top pastry chefs use marble worktops or marble slabs in their kitchens, despite the fact that it’s simpler to meet health and safety regulations with stainless steel. If professionals are willing to spend time, money and effort on something, that’s a clear sign its worthwhile. But why, exactly, is a marble worktop better than a wooden or stainless steel one?
