Main factors for choosing granite worktops

When shopping for granite worktops, there are a number of decisions you will need to make. Here are some of the top choices you will need to make when selecting the perfect granite surfaces for your home.


Granite worktops are commonly found in beige, brown, pink and grey. These are also lovely additions to kitchens depending on the existing or intended colour scheme. Other less common options include blue, red and green. They are excellent for making a bold statement and they certainly are unique in their beauty.


Since granite is a natural stone, you can expect different slabs to have different veining patterns. Solid-coloured granite slabs are extremely rare and they usually have marbled or speckled veining patterns. These veining patterns add visual interest and a unique style to the room.


The finish of your granite worktops will dramatically affect its appearance as well as its functionality. Polished finishes are most popular and a honed finish is another great option. Honed finishes are great for darker surfaces because they smooth them without the glossy finish.

No matter your preferences, you are sure to find the perfect granite worktops to suit your home. Make sure that you discuss your needs with your granite supplier. By understanding what you are looking for will ensure that they will be able to help you find the very best slabs.
