Why Granite?

Granite worktops from the worlds leading suppliers

If you want a work surface that no one else in the world has then a granite kitchen worktop is the only choice. Granite is made of natural rock, so the colour and pattern of each slab of granite are completely unique. Because of this, we highly recommend looking at a few different slabs of granite from our full range at our showroom in Wigan, Lancashire, before making your final decision.

We stock granite from a number of pre-eminent suppliers and manufacturers in the granite worktop industry, so we’re confident that our huge range of granite kitchen worktop slabs will fire your imagination. From Fugenstone to Unistone, from International Stones Ltd to CRL Quartz Surfaces, we only source the best materials for our granite kitchen worktops.

Why choose granite worktops?

There are many reasons why granite worktops for kitchens and bathrooms are so popular, but durability is the main one. Granite is virtually indestructible. It’s highly resistant to heat, cold, UV damage, scuffs, scratches, mould, and staining. It’s also non-porous, meaning it’s completely waterproof, and will never warp.

Low maintenance is another advantage of granite kitchen surfaces and granite bathroom worktops. Because of its high resistance to elements that would cause damage to other materials, you can easily maintain granite by wiping it clean with warm soap and water and a soft cloth, making it incredibly easy to look after (as well as highly hygienic).

This makes granite the perfect material to use in a kitchen or bathroom, and it will probably outlast the decor in the rest of your home!

Our Worktops

How are granite worktops made?

To produce a granite worktop, the granite is drilled and extracted from quarries using specialised machines that can cut the rock into slabs.

We then use advanced technology to create the custom design and function that you require. This will consider the thickness of the slab that you need (usually 20mm or 30mm), and what kind of edging you want – this is especially important to consider from a safety point of view on islands.

If you need help visualising any of this, if you have questions about the best configuration for your kitchen space, or if you’d like us to explain our professional granite worktop installation process in more detail, just get in touch and we’ll be glad to offer our guidance and advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is granite?

Granite is a natural stone, created from the compression of molten rock beneath the Earth’s surface. It is composed primarily of a mixture of minerals including quartz, feldspar and micas. Granite is one of the hardest substances on the planet – second only to diamond – which is why it’s a popular choice for kitchen work surfaces. It has a sophisticated, multi-layered appearance after polishing.

Are granite worktops worth the money?

When choosing a granite worktop, you are automatically boosting the value of your home both financially and aesthetically. Granite worktops are an ideal investment for home owners because they are beautiful, long-lasting, easy maintenance and can see a big ROI as they are so popular on the market.

Whether you’re looking for a steel grey finish or want to bring your ivory fantasy to fruition, we can make it happen.

Are granite worktops expensive?

Granite worktops can be a little on the pricier side but their high-quality and durable characteristics make them a worthwhile investment in the long-run, especially as they require little maintenance and are likely to last longer than other types of worktop surfaces.

Which is cheaper - granite or quartz worktops?

Granite worktops are a cheaper alternative to quartz worktops. The costs of installing a granite worktop will vary depending on bespoke requirements but generally are more affordable than quartz per square foot installed.

What maintenance is required for granite countertops?

Granite worktops can be easily maintained using a microfiber cloth and even a dry one for a basic clean.

What are the pros and cons of granite?

As well as being very easy to care for, granite is extremely tough and durable; its practicality being a desirable trait. However, granite is a porous material, meaning that it can absorb spills and if it isn’t sealed properly, liquid can damage the surface and weaken it.

This is why you should have granite surfaces sealed and re-sealed when necessary to block the pores and prevent liquid from getting into the stone. Granite is one of the least porous natural stones however and does not require re-sealing as frequently as marble countertops.

How do you clean granite worktops?

To clean granite worktops, you should use a pH neutral form of washing up liquid or cleaning product mixed with warm water. We also recommend using a soft, microfibre cloth.

Is a quartz worktop better than granite?

If you’re trying to decide between a quartz worktop or a granite worktop, we have put together a handy comparison guide to help you decide on which surface will suit your bespoke needs.
