How did granite worktops become so popular?



Granite worktops are as popular today as they are diverse. With so many different colours and patterns to choose from, homeowners around the world are making the most of this durable, natural stone. Not only is it known for turning any room into a place of elegance, but it is also known to stand the test of time. Of course, this was not always the case and granite worktops are relatively new compared to other work surfaces.

Back in the late 80s, granite was really only available in a couple of colours and it was extremely expensive. So much so, that only certain homeowners could afford this sophisticated look and it wasn’t seen as an option that would even come close to paying for itself.

Today, thanks to increased availability and popularity, the prices have dropped dramatically and it really is a luxury feature that everyone can afford to enjoy. The lower price is still somewhat higher than that of other materials but, thanks to its durability, it will earn its keep.

Over the past few years, we have also seen an increase in variety. There are a number of colours to chose from, which means that it’s an even more attractive option. It’s that much easier to get the look you want when you have the freedom of choice in terms of colours and patterns. Natural stone suppliers have also made various finishes available so that the edges of the countertops are smooth and attractive. Sealants and buffing are also popular options that help keep your worktops looking great for years.
