Granite is an extremely popular material for kitchen worktops that works well in any style kitchen, and is available from our base in London. There are of course other options, including Diresco worktops and Silestone worktops, both of which are popular quartz options with their own benefits.
Whether you choose granite or quartz really depends on your own needs and tastes. If you want something unique that no one else in the world will have, granite is the obvious choice – it’s a natural stone and each piece has its own pattern. It comes in a range of colours with various styles, including marbled and caramel swirls, and of course the stunning and famous stars on black velvet look. Quartz, such as the aforementioned or Compac worktops, comes in almost any colour imaginable, including near luminous pinks, greens and yellows.
Inner-city chic has become a representation of minimalist and shiny, with reflective worktops and chrome cupboards. Granite fits into this philosophy perfectly, with its highly polished finish that remains for years. Whether you want to blend in with the Made in Chelsea look or bring a touch of the rustic countryside to your kitchen, granite can provide the look you want at an affordable cost.
Not only is granite an affordable option, it is also economical – being heat resistant and very difficult to damage, it will last a very long time and requires only minimal cleaning to continue looking its best. Better yet, with London being such a vast city, it can prove overwhelming when shopping around to find the best deal but such countertops aren’t as expensive as first imaginable and can be fitted whether you live in Wood Green, Maida Vale, Hackney, Woolwich or pretty much anywhere else within the M25.
