Benefits of Granite Countertops

Without a doubt, granite worktops are a fantastic choice for your kitchen. They are a beautiful and robust option that’s eye-catching and practical for any modern kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a contemporary feel or something more traditional, granite worktops can help you create the perfect style for your new kitchen.

  • Durability – Granite is a rugged, durable material ideal for kitchens. They’re one of the toughest and most robust stone material available, and it is resistant to scratching.
  • Variety of Colours – It’s not uncommon to assume that granite is only available in black or grey. However, granite comes in a wide range of colours. Whether you’re looking for light countertops or a darker colour, a granite worktop is perfect for your tastes and style. Granite is available in a textured pattern to see the different colours mixing.
  • Family Friendly – Kitchens go through a lot, especially if you have children or pets. Granite is a family-friendly material that’s perfect for any household. This is because it is not easily damaged or stained, and being heat resistant is ideal when teaching little ones how to cook.
  • Sustainability – It’s easy to see that some people would assume that because granite is a natural resource that it’s not renewable. Compared to some engineered countertop materials, granite can prove to be more sustainable. For decades, one quarry can provide large amounts of granite, requiring minimal processing to fit your countertops.
  • Price – You may believe granite is an expensive option, but your order and installation are affordable with our services. Not only that, but your new granite countertops are an investment that will save you money in the long. If properly maintained and cared for, granite can last decades, so you spend less on replacing your countertops. Prestige Granite & Marble has several different granite kitchen worktops available for any budget.
  • Easy to Repair – While granite doesn’t chip or scratch easily, things unfortunately happen. Thankfully, granite is easy to fix. Even the most minor chip can be repaired with the help of professionals.

How to Care and Maintain Your Granite Kitchen Countertops

Beyond being one of the most beautiful natural stones you can select for your new worktop, customers love the low maintenance requirements of granite. While it may be low maintenance, it still requires some effort to keep it beautiful and sturdy for years to come. To ensure your new granite kitchen worktops can handle anything, we’ve put together a couple of tips on how to properly care for and maintain your granite countertops:

  • Cleaning – While standard soap and warm water will work, we recommend finding a cleaner designed for the stone to get the most out of your granite. When you find the right cleaner, apply and wipe with a damp cloth. It’s also highly recommended to avoid acidic cleaners like vinegar. These can remove any sealant, which will leave your granite worktop vulnerable.
  • Maintenance – When it comes to natural stone worktops, it’s a good idea to be as cautious as possible. Therefore, we recommend sealing your granite surface. By sealing the surface, you’re reducing the likelihood that juice and oil will get caught in the porous surface, which can lead to weakening or permeant staining. We recommend resealing whenever water no longer beads on the surface to extend your new worktop life. If you notice water sinking into the surface, it’s time to reseal your granite worktop.

Explore the Different Granite Worktop Finishes

When you’re redesigning your kitchen, we recommend considering what stone you’ll use and what finish the stone will have. Think of granite worktop finishes as a way to showcase your new granite. Are you looking for a glossy, reflective surface to brighten things up or a matte finish to add rustic charm to your kitchen? If you’re looking for a custom look and feel for your new granite countertops, don’t hesitate to ask about our speciality finishes. Here are some of the more popular granite finishes available:

  • Polished – This is the most common finish we apply to granite countertops. A polished worktop will make the surface glossy and almost mirror-like. When you apply a polished finish, granite’s unique characteristics are highlighted. The colour and textures will apply more vibrant. In terms of maintenance, polished surfaces are the easiest to keep clean.
  • Honed – Honed is also referred to as a buffed or matte finish which creates a smooth surface without any gloss or reflection. When this is used on granite countertops, it makes the surface more susceptible to staining. Since honed granite is as slippery or strain-resistant, it does need to be resealed more frequently. However, you won’t need to polish the stone.
  • Leathered – Leathered is a relatively new finishing style known as the brushed finish. To create a leathered surface, you prep the granite as you would for honed, but then run a diamond-tipped brush over it to add texture with subtle dimples. This creates a more sophisticated look and will often keep the colour of the natural stone.
  • Flamed – Due to the high heat applied to the stone to create this finish, granite is the only material that can receive this style of finish. The flamed finish is rarer and often used for outdoor kitchens. To create this look, granite is heated under extreme temperatures, which causes the stone to burst and change color. When completed, the granite will have a rougher surface with a natural but faded look
