Cost of granite worktops

22-Jan-2015 When it comes to redesigning or building a new kitchen, cost is often the number one factor that needs to be considered. The fact that granite is a durable and fashionable substance makes it appealing in many ways. That said, the one possible drawback is the fact that it tends to be more expensive than certain other materials.

When weighing up the cost of granite versus other materials, it is important to understand that the money you spend will in fact prove to be an investment. If you take proper care of your granite worktops, they really can last you a lifetime. Certain other types of countertops (like wood) will need to be replaced after a certain number of years which means that you will need to fork out a load of cash and endure the inconvenience of renovations yet again.

Another factor to consider would be the type of granite you wish to install. Tiles, slabs and modular granite are the three main options and each have their advantages and disadvantages. While tiles are the cheapest, they also mean that your worktops will have more seams.

As you shop around, you will also notice how different types of granite stone will have different prices per square meter. In addition, the more polished your stone and the more design details you add, the higher the price. If you are trying to save money, keep your design as simple as possible with as little polishing done too.

In the end, the amount of money you spend will be worth it. It might sound like a large portion of your building or renovation budget but it will more than pay for itself over the years that follow.
