Lots Of Our Customers Opt For Granite Worktops In Luton

At Marble & Granite, based as we are in Hatfield, we serve customers who are seeking stone worktops throughout London and the surrounding counties, including Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, and Essex. They come to us because we are known for producing amazing worktops in all sorts of patterns and designs as well as tiles and flooring.

Not only do we use marble and granite, but also sandstone, limestone, quartzite, and a wide choice of quartz and sintered stone. Although we say so ourselves, you really are spoilt for choice! Add to that our engineering skills which can produce edges in any patterns you wish, and even if you choose an engineered / man-made stone, you can probably safely bet that your kitchen will be unique.

Lots of our customers choose granite worktops in Luton, and it is hardly surprising. Granite is a natural stone and is extremely tough. That means that it can handle the knocks and spills which happen from time to time in any kitchen, and get by without batting an eyelid, when other stones might suffer. As we have mentioned elsewhere, although we always recommend using chopping boards in the kitchen, if you chop foods on granite, you will probably wreck your knife blade first!

The Elephant In The Room

Just to deal with the elephant in the room, we do get asked if granite is porous, and the answer to that is yes, it is. However, that is no different from most other natural stones. But there is a very simple answer and that is to seal it with the right sealant. Then you can be certain that you won’t suffer from any staining if you spill coffee, red wine, jam, or anything else on your worktop. Of course, we take care of all that when we install your worktops.

Another advantage of granite worktops is that they are heat resistant. While we also recommend always using a trivet when you are taking pans off the hob or out of the oven and putting them on the worktop, if you do put one on the surface it is not likely to cause harm. Equally, if you have granite surfaces in your bathroom you can put a hot hair dryer down on it without a problem.

Another big advantage of granite is the huge choice of different colours and grains that are available. Every slab is different, so we recommend visiting us in Hatfield and choosing the ones that you want.
