    Create a Statement Worktop with Surrey Marble & Granite

    A statement worktop is the ideal focal point for your kitchen or bathroom. It’s typically the most used part of the room and it’s also where the eye naturally rests in many cases. A modern granite worktop can make an older kitchen look up-to-date, while a marble worktop in the bathroom gives the whole room an air of elegance.

    There are a number of ways to make a worktop stand out without dominating the room. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’re happy to offer our expertise to help our customers create the perfect look. Contact us today if you’re thinking of changing your bathroom worktops or installing granite worktops in the kitchen. Our expert stone workers will be happy to help and you can also visit our workroom to view and handle samples.

    Use of Colour

    Bright and light colours tend to draw the eye, while dark or neutral ones let it slide by. Natural stones like marble and granite come in a wide range of colours and the palette is further extended by engineered stones like Arena Stone and Compac. As stone is so durable and hard to stain, you don’t need to worry about choosing a light coloured marble worktop for a busy kitchen. This allows you to focus on creating the effect you want, rather than worrying about the state of your counters.

    Matching or Mismatching

    As the range of natural and engineered stones on the market expands, it’s easier than ever to create something truly unique. Matching stones across a large marble worktop can be difficult as the veining is unique to each block and the size of the slab is limited by the stone in the quarry. However, it’s possible to use this natural variation to create a very attractive result. Some designers are going further, using multiple colours of marble, granite or a processed stone to create an elegant and homey patchwork.

    Unusual Shapes

    Many British kitchens are small or awkward shapes, unable to accommodate modern labour saving gadgets, never mind adequate storage. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we can create bespoke marble and granite worktops in almost any shape, allowing you to preserve period features, make the most of an odd corner or create visual harmony throughout the room. Stone is self supporting, so it’s easy to make an overhang or create matching shelves at different heights. A popular option is to create a window ledge in a matching stone, drawing the eye to the carefully selected ornaments displayed there.

    Kitchen Islands

    A kitchen island is created in the same way as a granite or marble worktop and is an ideal way to make use of the centre of the room. Kitchen islands often include a small or casual dining area, such as a breakfast bar. By using the same granite or marble worktop for both, and maintaining the height at the same level as the main worktop, you easily create an area that works well as a food preparation area and a dining area. Kitchen islands naturally draw the eye in the middle of the room. They can be any shape, and curving or asymmetrical islands are very much in vogue.

In fact, with a bit of effort you could select granites for your home from 6 different continents from granite suppliers! A natural stone formed from molten rock cooled under pressure, granite is incredibly hard. The exact conditions under which it forms affect the type, colour and patterning of the stone. […]
