Finding the Right Shade of Grey for Your Décor
Because granite is a natural stone, no two pieces are exactly the same. This also means you’ll have a wide range of hues to choose from. Even grey granite worktops come in various shades, some lighter, some darker. This means you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. When choosing the shade of grey for your new worktop, you’ll want to think about the other design elements in the room. If you have lighter cabinets, you may want to choose a darker grey worktop to add some interest and contrast, and vice versa. However, many homeowners also want a monochromatic look with matching cabinets and worktops. The final decision is up to you. Prestige Granite & Marble has many options, including steel grey worktops, darker worktops with both black and grey hues, lighter worktops with white tones, worktops with green shades, and even grey granite worktops with added sparkle. The best part of granite is that there are numerous options with varying levels of patterns and veining, which allow you to fully customise your look.
Why Choose a Grey Granite Worktop?
Grey granite worktops are an excellent choice for any home, adding a sense of style and luxury to your bathroom or kitchen. The neutrality of grey makes it perfect for matching various styles and aesthetics. At Prestige Granite & Marble, we believe granite worktops are one of your best options when it comes to choosing a material for your new worktop. Our team is here to answer any questions you have about installing a granite worktop and will help you choose the appropriate option for your home. We encourage you to consider a grey granite worktop for all the following reasons:
Plenty of Colour Options
Just because you’ve chosen grey granite for your new worktop doesn’t mean you won’t have colour variations to choose from. Grey granite comes in numerous hues, ranging from dark to light, and each colour will have variations of patterns. This means you’ll have plenty of options to ensure your new worktop matches the rest of your décor.
Granite is an incredibly durable natural stone. It is difficult to scratch, dent, and crack, meaning it will hold up to the wear and tear of daily life. It is also waterproof and stain-resistant, so it will look great for years to come.
Because granite is so durable, it also does not require much maintenance. Though the surface is stain-resistant, it’s not completely immune, so you’ll want to clean up any spills quickly. You’ll also want to have it regularly re-sealed to prolong its life. Other than these few small maintenance requirements, granite will last for many years.
Choose Your Finish
Not only will you have plenty of colour variations to choose from with grey granite, but you’ll also have the option to customise the look even further by choosing your finish. There are a variety of finish options, ranging from natural and rough to smooth and shiny. This allows you to pick the appropriate finish to match the décor of the rest of the room and ensures you can create a cohesive aesthetic. Our team is here to help you learn more about each finish option and assist you in choosing the right granite worktop for your space. The finish options include:
A polished finish is a classic choice that creates a full-gloss shine and a smooth surface on the granite. It’s an excellent option for highly differentiated stone, as the polish will highlight the variations and enhance the graining to create a beautiful, eye-catching appearance.
Antique or Flamed
This finish is strongly textured to produce the most natural look and feel. Grey granite with this finish will have a rough texture and will look as if it was brought straight into your home from nature.
A leathered finish, also known as satinato, has a natural appearance with less texture than an antique finish. It gives you the best of both worlds, in that it is smoother to the touch but still has a matte surface.
A honed finish is fully smooth, but still has a matte surface, which is perfect for those who don’t want the high-gloss look. In most cases, a honed finish will reduce the visual impact of graining, making the variations less prominent. However, this may be the right choice if you intend to pair the worktop with colourful statement cabinetry.
