Kitchen worktops have to endure the tough day to day usage expected in a kitchen.
Impact hits from pots and pans, spilt tea, wine, food scraps and more are a regular weapon against the long life potential for your kitchen.
So it is little wonder that Granite Kitchen Worktops are so popular. Granite is one of the hardest materials known to man and requires diamond tools simply to cut and polish the material into kitchen worktop shapes and sizes. The result of this extreme diamond tooled cutting and shaping is a polished kitchen worktop surface that has a unique pattern and unbelievable strength. The durability and high polish make granite a favourite with people looking for kitchen worktops for their new kitchen.
It has become more of a design trend these days to start mixing and matching different worktop materials which itself opens up for potential in both the aesthetic of your kitchen but also in the durability of it. For example, some people love wooden worktops however wood around a kitchen sink can lead to mould and warping of the worktop (if the proper care is not taken) so a combination of wooden worktops and granite can provide a modern and aesthetic look but still offer you the best of usability and durability.
While some styles come and go, granite has been a firm favourite in the kitchen community for decades so if you are wanting your new kitchen to span a long lifetime then granite may be the ideal choice.
