Granite – Versatility and Elegance for Rooms, Bathrooms, Granite Worktops

The versatility of granite has enabled it to soar as an invariable component of modern design, most of all a preferred material for home renovation projects. Synonymous with luxury finishes to rooms, bathrooms, and increasingly present as the most demanded material for granite worktops in kitchens, granite offers sleek surfaces for flooring, splashbacks, water pools, etc. Colour themes are not a problem for people who have placed their choice on granite for their homes. The amazing variety of colours offers appropriate shades, hues, and colour schemes which can be selected in conformity with the overall colour scheme in a home or the predominant colours in individual premises – granite worktops offer a plethora of colour options.

The finish of granite surfaces provides another source of variety. People can choose according to their taste and preferred granite surface finishes, and polished and glossy granite worktops are naturally predominant favourites. But in addition there are other opportunities for surface finish with a difference, and there can be granite surfaces with matte finish, i.e. there is no shine of the smooth surface; for people who prefer a modicum of shine in granite worktops, honed surfaces offer the impression of smooth velvet. They are also frequent solutions for granite worktops, as alternatives to sparkling svelte polish surfaces, but they are no less exquisite when selected with style and appropriately blended into the kitchen. There are also opportunities for rougher finishes which are more unconventional, but they have their aficionados among lovers of innovative home design – sawn, sandblasted, or rubbed surfaces can make a difference and unusual charm to the nook or area where they are used. Finally, there is the antique looking surface which brings back memories of old times and infuses the ambience with style.

To achieve uniformity of style, especially in modern kitchens, companies now offer replacement doors in addition to bespoke granite worktops. Thus the colour of worktops can be perfectly matched to cupboard door colour in order to create a veritable symphony of uniformity and elegance. Compared to the recently reigning colour profusion in kitchens, where furniture, appliances, curtains, and worktops often featured different colours in a motley pattern, innovative design relies on uniformity for sleek stylishness. The indubitable advantage of replacement doors is that they feature different design options, from the most classic to the most contemporary one, and in addition there are a range of handles to complement the elegance. Old kitchen cabinets acquire a new look which is on a par with brand new granite worktops. Drawer fronts and space saving interior elements are other staples for stylish uniformity around the kitchen, and people can ask for their cupboards to be remodelled if they feel they need to have major changes. People who prefer a combination of two colours can also find appropriate solutions as they browse online shops and compare offers and quotes for granite surfaces for innovative home remodelling, to create their unique flooring, water features or granite worktops with exquisiteness that only granite can achieve.

Whilst looking for a subject to write about this week I stumbled across an image of inca stonework which you can see here. I was immediately struck by the amazing precision of their work. After further reading, it became apparent that the Incas generally worked in stone shaped into trapeziums and would use stone of many types, from limestone to granite. Imagine what an Incan Granite worktop may look like!! How the incas managed to cut their stone is still a mystery, as there were no iron tools at this time. It is most […]
