When updating a kitchen or bathroom, you may want to add new appliances and fittings to provide a sense of modernity. However, you can give your home a new and fresh look by simply updating your worktops.
There is a wide range of surfaces for you to consider, though far and away the best surface for any kitchen is granite. Granite worktops are affordable yet functional and so offer the perfect choice for many homeowners.
They are aesthetically stunning, whether delivered in a high gloss, sparkling or matte finish. They are supremely practical, being naturally resistant to heat, spillages and moisture.
Durable, cost-effective and incredibly hygienic, they are ideal for use in the kitchen and bathroom of any home.
Another huge benefit to using granite worktops in the home is the superb versatility they provide. In a modern home with all the latest appliances, lighting and sense of design, granite is a natural fit. Tangible and beautiful, they can turn a great kitchen into a signature space.
In traditional kitchens too though, granite as a work surface delivers. Ideal when paired with traditional wooden cabinets, they can tie seemingly disparate areas together perfectly.
To many people, granite worktops evoke an opulence; a luxury. This connotation means many people mistakenly believe they are too expensive. This is not true, however, with many wonderful finishes available at very reasonable prices. Homeowners are able to choose granite worktops that last more than a generation and still look stunning.
