Granite worktop FAQs



When installing new worktops in your kitchen or bathroom, you are bound to come across granite surfaces. They are one of the most popular options for homeowners and for good reason. Of course, as with any home investment, property owners are bound to have several questions.

What is granite?
Made from cooling magma, granite is an igneous rock with unique patterns and veining. It is a natural rock that is mined around the world for its beauty and strength.

Why choose granite?

Not only does granite improve the look of that particular room, but it also adds value to your home. It’s easy to maintain a hygienic environment with granite and you can expect it to last a lifetime.

Why is granite expensive?
Granite is quarried from various locations and, once removed from the earth, it undergoes a long process in order to turn this raw rock into the beautiful worktops we love. This process is time consuming and fairly grueling which is why the prices tend to exceed those of other materials. In addition to this, granite is known for its toughness and durability which means that you won’t need to replace your worktops every few years. You will invest once and be done with it!

What colours can I choose?
Granite is one of the most diverse of all natural stones. The veining varies from slab to slab and the colours range from white to black and even include various shades of red, green, and blue! No matter the colour of your kitchen or bathroom, you will find a shade of granite that will look great!
