We all know that the worktop provides a central visual point in any kitchen, but they also come in for heavy usage every single day. Whether you are investing in a whole new kitchen or you just want to replace an old worktop, you need to give it serious thought, as they can make a great difference in terms of looks and practicality.
There are many options when it comes to choosing your kitchen worktop material, but a stone worktop really makes your kitchen stand out. We can supply, install and repair a wide variety of stone worktops, from exquisite marble or luxurious granite, to ultramodern and chic quartz worktops. Although they are sometimes more expensive than other materials, the major benefits of stone worktops will make your investment well worth it. They are not only ideal for food preparation, but they also have a luxurious natural look which will add style and value to your home.
Stone worktops are beautiful
Stone worktops are visually spectacular and can keep your kitchen looking like new over many years. They come in a variety of natural colours, patterns and graining which suit any traditional or modern style. While granite has a unique beauty because of the natural variation in the pattern and colour, the quartz look is more luxurious and can give your kitchen a more sophisticated appeal.
Stone worktops are practical and durable
When it comes to durability, granite worktops are the most popular choices because granite is one of the hardest natural products. You can move hot pans off the heat and onto the granite worktop without worrying about damaging the work surface. Granite can not only withstand high temperatures but is also stain and scratch resistant, so that your worktop will last for years to come.
Stone worktops are almost maintenance-free
Granite and quartz are non-porous materials, which makes them stain resistant and easy to maintain. Their non-porous nature also means granite and quartz are suitable for use as sterile work surfaces. Some stones, like marble are more porous, and thus absorb stains from various foods. To lessen this, we apply a coating to all our stone worktops which reduces the porosity of the work surface, so your marble worktop will remain stain free for longer.
