When it comes to upgrading your home you want everything to look perfect, especially in the rooms where a lot of your time is spent.
The kitchen is often the heart of the home and when it comes to choosing materials for your kitchen you want the best quality you can get. This is why more and more people are choosing granite worktops and splashbacks for their workspaces.
Granite worktops come with many benefits, including the ability to withstand high temperatures, a high level of versatility and the availability of many striking patterns.
Granite is a natural stone material formed by the compression of cooled lava rocks over an extended period of time. This means granite worktops are more than capable to withstand the hot cooking equipment and apparatus that is often placed upon them and is able to surround stoves with no risk of damage. The versatility of a granite kitchen worktop also allows for extras to be built into the surface when purchasing, such as pan stands that will help reduce the already minimal risk of discolouration and draining grooves to avoid the sometimes unwanted gleam of a more tradition sink draining board and also allows water to be drained directly back into the basin.
Granite, alongside being aesthetically pleasing, the material has a very high level of resistance too so with a granite kitchen worktop you are looking at a longer life span due to far fewer scratches and stains taking up residence on the surface. In addition, thanks to the way granite is formed, it can be found in a variety of attention grabbing natural patterns, which will give your kitchen worktop that extra wow factor.
