Deciding upon a worktop

 

Deciding Upon a Worktop

At Surrey Marble & Granite we offer granite in a wide variety of colours. We have nine base colours (yellow, blue, pink, black, white, green, grey, red and brown) and each colour has a range of options.

Finding the right colour for you is left solely up to personal preference, but many people use their current décor in their kitchen as a guide for what colour their worktop should be. One rule of thumb to follow is that in kitchens with minimal light, dark worktops are not always the best choice as they make the room feel smaller. In kitchens with good lighting, it is okay to go for dark worktops. Again, this decision is yours to make.

Stains and Granite

Granites toughness and thick grain makes it almost impenetrable to stains. This aspect alone makes granite worktops a top choice for those who want to upgrade their kitchen. Worktops go through a lot of wear, tear and spills- who wouldn’t want a worktop that is practically impervious to stains? Of course, the word practically must be taken into consideration- granite worktops are not unbreakable- they can absorb spills, stain, break and/or chip if they are not treated with care.

Cleaning Stains Off of a Worktop:

  1. Clean up spills right away- you do not want them to seep into your worktop.
  2. The type of liquid you spill will dictate what you will use to clean up the spill. All you will need to clean up your worktop after a spill are a few household items.
  3. Combining flour, water and dishwashing liquid will create a paste that you can use to clean up a stain by letting it sit overnight under plastic wrap. In the morning, scrape the mixture off with a wooden kitchen utensil and clean the area.

  From gravel chips to patio tiles to a rockery, stone is a key feature of most garden living spaces. It’s easy to see why – it’s durable, waterproof, weatherproof and easy to care for. It doesn’t warp in the rain or need resealing every year. But which stone is the right one for your garden? How do you decide? Does it matter?
