Why Granite Is Perfect For Kitchens

New year new kitchen

The beginning of a new decade is upon us. With a new year beginning it might be time for a change in your home. A little renovation can dramatically improve the way you see your kitchen, renewing both satisfaction and comfort. Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms of the home, so it’s logical to invest in it. If you are not already utilising granite in your kitchen, you should be. Granite has a range of exceptional qualities which make it the ideal stone to use in your home. Granite worktops are timeless so won’t simply be overturned by new trends, and once installed can be enjoyed for years to come. A new worktop can completely transform a kitchen giving it a new look and feel. Get in contact with our experts today for more information on new worktops or complete kitchen refurbishments.

The benefits of granite

Your kitchen is the hub of your home. Often subject to bustle and mess, you need strong, durable materials which will stand the test of time. Granite is formed from hot molten lava that is cooled under layers of metamorphic rock. This makes it extremely hard and durable. Granite is resistant to both heat and scratches, making it ideal for the cooking area. This means knives, hot pans and scissors are no match for your worktop. With so many shades of granite available, you can find something that perfectly complements your kitchen. From deepest blacks to textured reds and holographic blue, you can find the perfect shade for you. As Granite is a natural stone, it can have unique veining patterns and specks which give a bespoke look to your home.

Sustainable living

Ensuring you are utilising sustainable, earth-friendly materials in your home is vital. Granite is a natural material which is both durable and recyclable, making it ideal. The process of making this raw material into a stone doesn’t require lots of energy and the factory process minimises waste. Once you’ve made the investment to have a new kitchen worktop, you want to ensure it is long-lasting. Granite is resistant to stains and won’t absorb liquid if properly sealed. This means wine, lemon juices and oils won’t penetrate the surface. Maintenance is very simple once sealed, and only needs soap and water or a basic granite cleaner to keep your surface sparkling. If your countertop needed repairing for any reason, the process is smooth and can be done on a budget.
