6 reasons you'll love granite worktops

It goes without saying that at Grantech we love granite worktops.

In fact, we'd go as far as to say as we're pretty obsessed with all our materials.

When it comes to granite however, we just can't get enough of the variety, versatility and level of quality this amazing material has to offer.

You may be reading this thinking that granite is just another material to add to the list of options you have when it comes to your next kitchen worktop, but it’s so much more than that.

That's why we've put together this list of reasons why granite is one of if not the best natural stone available, and by the end of this blog post we're pretty sure you will love it just as much as we do.

So let's get started.

1. Made to last

When you're investing in kitchen worktops you want to know that they will last.

If treated correctly and with a little TLC throughout the years, Granite kitchen worktops can last a lifetime.

Granite is one of the hardest materials used in kitchens and will be your companion for as long as you want it to be, whereas worktops made utilising other materials such as wood or laminate can degrade over time, forcing you to have to spend more money further down the line to refresh your worktops.

2. Endless variety

Choosing the perfect colour for your granite worktop can initially be overwhelming due to the sheer volume of choice that is available.

There is an almost endless array of colours thanks to the stone’s natural properties.

No two pieces of granite are ever the same.

Whilst the shade or colour may be similar, the natural fusions and patterns that emerge within each piece of granite are unique, which is why so many people love them. After all, who doesn't like to feel a little bit exclusive sometime?

3. Easy to care for

We all lead busy lives and worrying about maintaining a kitchen on top of everything else we need to accomplish in a day is something many of us simply don't have time for.

If that sounds a little bit like your life, we've got great news, you don't have to.

Granite kitchen worktops are incredibly easy to maintain once they have been sealed.

We recommend that an experienced professional both fits and seals granite kitchen worktops to ensure that they are ready for a lifetime of service.

That's the beauty of working with Grantech, we can manufacture, fit and seal your granite worktops for you.

Once we've finished, your granite worktops will be able to resist most stains and be protected from scratches, meaning you can enjoy a kitchen worktop that looks like new for many years to come.

4. They're beautiful

We may be a bit biased but there's no denying that granite is beautiful.

A well-crafted granite kitchen worktop will give you a reason to smile every time you step into your kitchen.

There's something about the way light reflects off it, the sleek yet sturdy nature of it that separates it from other materials you might use.

Whether it's the speckles or the veins within the stone itself, there is almost always something new to discover on the surface of the stone and it'll have you staring at it in admiration time and time again.

We have the privilege of being exclusive stockists of Antolini stone in the North West, and being able to walk in and see nature at its finest each day is something special.

You could have that feeling too, trust us, if you arrange an appointment and see our granite worktops in person, you'll forget you ever considered anything different.

5. Increase the value of your property

Not only are granite worktops an investment insomuch that they last for many years, but they are also great if you are planning on selling your property in the future.

Prospective buyers will almost always be impressed by a granite worktop when they walk into a kitchen as they are a sign of quality craftsmanship.

They're also always in fashion, which can be a mark that a prospective buyer will need to spend less renovating the kitchen if they decide to purchase the property.

6. They're hygienic

Hygiene has always been an integral aspect of any home, particularly in the kitchen, however, in these strange times it has taken on added importance.

Granite is one of the most hygienic surfaces you can have in a kitchen as bacteria cannot penetrate the surface.

It also means that granite worktops are smooth to the touch, making it a breeze to clean up spillages quickly and effectively, without leaving nasty stains or residue.
