We specialise in the manufacture and installation of granite worktops in Chelsea, and the surrounding area. If you’re considering granite countertops for your new kitchen then read this article for further information on granite and how the ordering process works.
Why is granite the best material for a kitchen work surface?
Granite can be found all over the world, deep within the Earth’s crust. It is an igneous rock formed by magma and usually has a medium to coarse grain texture. The colours vary considerably due to differing chemistry and mineralogy, and you can choose from a range of shades including pinks, greys and blacks. Granite is particularly popular as a kitchen worktop, due its durability and natural beauty.
When deciding which material is the right choice for your new countertop, it’s important to consider care and maintenance. To reduce the absorption of liquids into the granite, we treat the stone with a proprietary sealer. This penetrates the surface and fills the small gaps that are between the crystals. Once the worktop has been manufactured, we treat the stone at our factory. This sealer helps to reduce the chance of staining and means that it is easier for you to maintain and care for your new work surface.
