4 Reasons Why Granite Rocks

Its 100% natural…

First and foremost, the granite industry has been around since the days of the Ancient Egyptians. Who are we to argue with them? This ancient industry has developed a lot since then, but the concept is still the same; the granite that can be found under your feet is the very same that could end up as your kitchen worktop.  Nowadays, it is imported from places such as India, China and Brazil but you can feel a sense of pride in the fact that the granite that is the centre piece of your kitchen is 100% natural.

It adds a boutique touch to your kitchen…

We don’t want to say granite worktops are a status symbol but… When you walk into a kitchen with a granite worktop island at its centre, it is incredibly striking and makes a great space to congregate with friends and family over a few drinks. With the range of granites now on offer, there is something for everyone from the grissly grey that you’d see on Bodmin Moor to the lime green granites of India.

-Your baking skills will rise…

Have you been watching Bake Off and been inspired to start getting involved yourself? Good decision- and your perfect accomplice for this is a granite worktop. Many customers find that granite’s cold surface makes a perfect base for rolling pastry and creating that perfect pasty. Mines a medium steak please…

-It’s incredibly tough and low-maintenance…

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘tough as granite?’ Well, no me neither but it definitely has some truth to it. Granite is incredibly tough and will be able to deal with most things any conventional household throws at it.  One advantage that granite has over man-made quartz is that it is more heat-resistant. That is not to say that it is heat-proof and we would not want to give you that guarantee but you can certainly relax more with your granite worktop in place. Even if your family aren’t too quick with the cleaning, as long as you don’t abuse your worktops, you will find that they will look good as new for decades.
