4 Reasons Why You Should Use Granite Countertops

Granite is one of the most ideal materials for your kitchen. It has many benefits so it is no wonder so many people utilise it for their homes.  At Surrey Marble and Granite, we are leading suppliers of Granite Worktops throughout the UK. If you are interested in our expert stone services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team.

An Investment

Although affordable, it could be said that granite is an investment. It can bring beauty and even value to your home. Once you’ve invested in this stone it will stand the test of time and last for years to come. If you want a splash of luxury in your kitchen, granite is the material for you. It’s very on-trend so will add a streak of style to any room. Granite is available in a range of colours from classic black, through more unique colours such as orange and then the sleek white and grey granite worktops. It has a wide range so whatever the style of your property, we can find the perfect stone for you. Whether you have a modern or rustic kitchen, this stone completes it with flair. Granite also comes in a range of finishes, such as basic, marbled and pebbled.

Durability

In terms of durability, granite is second to none. Its the second hardest material to man so you can guarantee a hard-wearing material. Because it’s derived from hot magma, its heat resistant. This means you are free to put hot pans and pots down on the surface. There’s no need to worry about kitchen mishaps as the surface can withstand it. You can add a sealer onto the stone, which is completed by professionals. This gives it that extra edge of durability and helps it last even longer. If your countertop becomes damaged, it’s fairly easy to fix. Granite has that reliability which is vital for any kitchen material.

Hygiene

Granite is a non-porous because it’s sealed. This means bacteria and germs cannot penetrate the surface, so you can be sure your surface is clean. Simply wipe with warm soapy water to keep squeaky clean. This also means the surface is smooth and easy to allow for quick clean up of spills. Once your surface has been sealed, it’s largely low maintenance so you can relax and enjoy the aesthetic.

Sustainable

Being conscious of the carbon footprint you leave is crucial. We are being made ever aware of this. Granite can last a lifetime, doesn’t emit harmful gas during production and contains no harmful chemicals. This means although it has a way to go, its one of the greener materials for your kitchen.

As well as granite, we are leading suppliers of quartz, marble and limestone, as well as a range of other high-quality stones. Our team are also experts at kitchen refurbishments, so if you’re looking for a fresh look in your property, look no further than our stone experts. Don’t hesitate to get in contact with our friendly team today.
