Granite worktops – your questions answered

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’ve been working with stone for decades. We’re happy to share our expertise and answer your questions about our favourite stones. Here are a few common questions about granite. 

Is granite just for kitchen worktops?

 

Not at all! While granite worktops have become very popular in recent years (and with good reason, we think!) the stone has been used for all sorts of building and decorative options for thousands of years. Floors in palaces and temples often include granite, and it’s a very common choice for decorative but structurally important elements like pillars and walls. We supply granite worktops for all purposes, from kitchens to bathrooms to super yachts, as well as granite flooring and tiles.

What if I don’t want a glossy, minimalist look

Granite can be prepared and finished in a number of different ways, and that gives it the glossy or natural look. A high polish finish is popular at the moment, and gives a very stylish finish for a modern home. However, if you’ve got a period home or prefer a more cosy, farmhouse style, then a rougher or natural finish might be more suitable. We can also alter the way we do corners and edges to suit your tastes.

Is granite easy to care for?

Yes. Granite is incredibly tough and literally hard as rock. Our worktops are sealed, which makes them non-porous so they can’t absorb liquid, stains, dirt or germs. Everything stays on the surface where it can be wiped away with a cloth and a squirt of gentle cleaner.

That seems too easy. Are you sure it’s that simple?

Granite is one of the toughest natural materials. The most delicate part of a granite worktop is the finish – a high gloss finish will show smudges and fingerprints more easily, and will be easier to scratch or dull than a more natural finish. That said, we don’t recommend chopping directly on your granite worktop. There’s a slight risk you’ll damage the finish and a strong risk you’ll damage your knives!
