What to think about when buying black worktops


Granite worktops are available in a wide variety of colours. Black is one of the most popular options. That said, while black is wonderfully elegant, there are some factors to consider before making this selection.

The first thing to remember is that there are different shades of black just as there are different shades of all colours. Some shades have elements of blue, purple, and brown in them. You could ask for samples to find the right match for your cabinets and the rest of your décor.

You will then need to make sure that you are using the right stone supplier. Somebody with experience will be able to offer you professional advice and you can be sure that your worktops will be perfectly cut to size. You should also be able to choose from various finishes and edges.

Quality is also an important factor and it's good to remember that natural stone is always graded to reflect its quality. Ask your supplier about the grade of the stone surfaces they have to offer. Yes, it will affect the price but experts agree that there is no substitute for quality.

Finally, don't forget the fact that black surfaces often require some extra care. If you choose a polished black worktop, you should be aware that it will show dust and fingerprints very easily. This means that it will need to be wiped down often. A matte finish is less likely to show imperfections like that thin layer of dust. So, think about how much time you can spare for cleaning before choosing your favourite design.
