Can granite worktops be dyed?



Granite is a natural stone and, as such, it comes in a wide variety of colours and shades. Whether you accidentally ordered the wrong colour or you simply changed your mind, it’s interestng to note that there are ways of getting around this.

Depending on the current colour and the desired colour of your worktops, you might be able to dye them. It’s important to note that this process is rather time-consuming and you may need to polish the entire surface first in order to allow the dye to penetrate evenly.

The most realistic approach is to dye your granite a shade or more darker. Attempting to lighten the colour of your stone worktops is most likely end in less than desirable results. If your worktops have been sealed, you will need to make sure that the sealant is properly removed through the polishing process before you continue. If not, the colour will not penetrate evenly. After dyeing, you will need to seal the worktops again to protect them.

It’s also good to note that this is not the ideal solution but it is possible. You will also find that your worktops are likely to fade due to UV exposure. It’s not the actual stone that’s fading but rather the dye you applied. This means that you might need to redo the job from time to time.
