Deciding on a worktop for your kitchen or bathroom

Once you’ve chosen the material, that’s it right? Not quite! Luckily, the team at Surrey Marble and Granite are here to talk you through all the options, helping you create the perfect stone worktop for your kitchen or bathroom.

Which stone?

We’ve discussed the differences between marble, granite and limestone, as well as comparing natural stones to engineered stones such as Lapitec and Silestone. In most cases, the choice ultimately comes down to colour, personal preference and price. If you’re looking for a very vivid colour, such as pillar box red, you’ll need an engineered stone. Among the lighter, more natural shades, personal preference is key: do you love the look of marble? Prefer granite? Adore quartz? Visiting our showroom will let you get a hands-on look at samples of our stones, from classic white marble to brilliant blue Arena Stone. We can also discuss the price of different stones, making it easy for you to stick to your budget.

Exactly the shape and size you need

Every stone worktopOkite has to be individually cut to size. As we do all our own templating, prior to cutting stone in our factory, this means we can manufacture creative and unusual shapes for our customers. There are few limits on what our experienced stone workers can produce. Over the years we’ve created self-supporting overhangs, to turn a cabinet island into a breakfast bar; swooping curves on a granite worktop in a modern statement kitchen; and coordinating or matching accessories, including shelves, fireplaces and table tops. Talk to us and you may find your dreams are much more possible than you think!

Edges, draining boards and more

Subtle details, including the edge style, can enhance the character of your granite kitchen worktop or stone bathroom. Rounded edges are popular and timeless, but they’re not the only option. A more elaborate edge suits a country kitchen or period bathroom while the sharp corners of a straight edge suit a minimalist loft. As well as creating the cut-outs for taps, sinks, hobs and other fittings, we can also cut in a draining board or other feature. Stone cannot be cut on site, so it’s essential to plan this work in ahead of time for the best results.

What do Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral and ordinary Surrey homes have in common? While some wags might say they’re equally expensive or equally hard to heat, many Surrey families are now discovering the advantages of marble flooring, the same stone used in palaces and cathedrals. A natural stone with a unique elegance, marble has been used in important buildings for thousands of years. It’s incredibly durable and can withstand hundreds of thousands of footsteps. In Rome, the Pantheon’s marble floor was first laid over 18 centuries ago and a million […]
