Coloured Stone Worktops

Add a splash of colour to your kitchen with a coloured stone worktop. Natural stones like marble and granite are available in many colours, and the range has only expanded with the introduction of engineered stones. Thanks to nature’s grace and modern technology, you can now have a classic white marble worktop, a pillar box red Silestone worktop or any other colour your heart desires.

Stone makes a statement in a kitchen, and the worktop is often the focus of the room, both visually and in practical terms as it is used so often. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we believe that worktops should be beautiful as well as practical. A well-chosen marble worktop or stone back splash will be easy to clean, long lasting and a joy for years to come.

 

Coloured Marble Stone Worktops

Natural stone doesn’t have to be plain or boring. Marble worktops are designed to show the natural veining of the stone off to best effect. Many people don’t realise that marble naturally forms in a wide range of colours thanks to the effects of different minerals present in the stone. While most people choose delicate hues for their marble worktops, brighter shades are also available, all with marble’s signature veining.

Natural Granite Colours

Granite is practically considered a colour of itself, but dark grey isn’t the only option. Granite worktops are available in a number of natural shades, from delicate yellows to dusky reds and gentle blues. Granite doesn’t have the distinctive veining of marble worktops but it does have its own rich textures. This means that when you choose a granite worktop, there’s more to the choice than picking a colour – you can choose the texture and finish too. While granite is often seen as a rugged choice because of its durability, the finish and colour can make it visually delicate, like a robin’s egg.

The Full Rainbow

Engineered stones are made from natural stone, combined with resins and dyes. As a result, they retain the strength, durability and natural beauty of the stone their made from, while also being designed by human hands. As a result, engineered stone is available in an enormous range of colours and effects, from stones which imitate marble worktops to bright, vibrant primary colours. Whatever effect you want, you’ll be able to find the perfect stone worktop.

Gems for the Kitchen

Like a piece of jewellery, engineered stones combine natural beauty with great human achievement. One of the most startling and effective designs to emerge in recent years is the jewel-like Pietre Preziose collection from Okite. Okite worktops have been a hit for years, but the new translucent, shimmering pieces are truly a leap forward. Often compared to hand-blown glass and named after precious gems, this Okite collection adds something completely different to the options previously available. These Okite worktops are striking and a real design feature for the modern kitchen.

With 11 foot-long fingers and standing at 232 feet (71 metres) high, the Leshan Giant Buddha is the largest carved stone Buddha in the world. The Buddha overlooks the meeting of the Minjiang, Dadu and Qingyi rivers in the Sichuan Province of China near the city of Leshan. It was created in the year 713 at the request of monk Hai Tong who hoped it would calm the water spirits that he believed were responsible for shipping accidents. It took thousands of workers until 803 to finally complete the statue. The carving of the statue caused […]
