PRESENTING GRANITE’S WHOSE APPEAL IS EVERLASTING- Explore the Benefits of Having Granite installed in your spaces:
In order to have the kitchen of your dreams it’s necessary that you take several factors into consideration, such as working out the style of the kitchen and choosing the right furniture. Another very important factor that requires careful thought is picking out the perfect worktop – far from being a last-minute detail, worktops can make or break a design, as every little detail counts.
Everyone wants their worktops to not only be functional but also aesthetically pleasing, and even though there are many different choices out there when it comes to the right materials, few can compare to the beauty and sturdiness of granite.
Save Money – Granite is Durable
If you’re looking for a worktop that will let you do everything you need and still last you for a very long time, then granite is the answer for you. This material is one of the toughest out there, as it’s not easily damaged, whether by placing hot pans on its surface, by spilling liquids and food or by general wear and tear.
Granite doesn’t deteriorate over the years, meaning you’re unlikely to find that your worktop is discolouring or crumbling in places. So not only are granite worktops cost effective, they also last so long that you won’t need to purchase new ones anytime soon!
Save Time – Granite is Low Maintenance
Because granite worktops are easy to clean and maintain, you won’t have to spend a lot of time taking care of it. By dealing with spillages as soon as they happen and cleaning the surfaces with mild soap and water, your worktop will stay healthy and beautiful for longer.
In addition to this, granite is also an extremely hygienic material, meaning you can effortlessly keep it free of germs and bacteria. You also won’t need to scrub your worktops if they’re granite, as they’re easy to wipe down, saving you plenty of time that can be better spent elsewhere.
Enjoy! – Granite is Versatile
Granite worktops are one-of-a-kind. Their surfaces are almost reflective, and this glossy feature makes them look attractive, modern, and clean. With a huge variety of patterns and colours, granite lends itself to any interior design – whether you want your kitchen to be more traditional or contemporary-looking, granite can help you achieve or complement that style with ease.
Before making the final purchase when it comes to your kitchen worktops, make sure to consider all elements, including the best material for your needs! Granite worktops don’t lose value over time, especially if well maintained so, besides being a stunning choice for any kitchen, they’re also a sound investment for the future.

WHAT IS GRANITE?
Granite is a natural stone that is quarried in many countries around the globe. Granite and Quartzite are the names that are used interchangeably wherever stone tile and slabs are sold.
True Granite is a porous, igneous rock that has any number of chemical compositions that include a quartz base.
Quartzite is a metamorphic rock that has a higher percentage of quartz in its chemical makeup than granite does.
For the record, true quartzite is harder than true granite. But, don’t get too caught up in the name of the stone because regardless of which it is, geologically speaking, it has the same purpose and durability.
White Granite is harder to find than black or brown granite. All granite (and Marble) gets its name from the background color.
Some white granite slabs have veins similar to marble while others may have a spattering of freckles in either brown, gray, black or red and may include a sprinkling of blue throughout.
SOME OF THE BEST PRODUCTS
River White Granite is also known as Valley White and comes from India mines. The background is a translucent white with gray, blue and taupe veins and burgundy patches running throughout. The pattern is more linear than some granites, thus the reference to rivers.
White Ice Granite is mined in Brazil and quantities end up being quite limited which accounts for the higher price on this stone.
White Ice made its name in the granite countertop field because of its snowy white background and the contrast of the dark veins and patches. This one also has some blue veining in it and slabs are usually 8’ x 8’in size with the occasional slab larger than that. White Ice is cut to 3 cm thick, making it one of the nicer slab products for granite.
Colonial white granite is known for its consistent veining with grays, blues and taupe highlighted in the stone.
Super White Granite is not granite at all. It’s actually a quartzite, which is harder than granite and has equal or better durability. Some suppliers actually list it as marble, so check for a supplier that charges a granite price and save money. And, to add to the confusion, it is also called Fantasy White in some areas and White Vermont in the Northeast.
Kashmir White Granite is found in the same areas where Garnets are found in Southern India. As a result, it sometimes has small inclusions of garnets embedded in the slab. The patterns of greys and black mica give an overall salt and pepper appearance with swaths of veining running across it.
Alaska White Granite from Brazil is a beautiful blend of palest silver and frosty whites highlighted with neutrals and onyx hues that glitter with a warm glow in sunlight and under kitchen lighting. Because it comes in a fairly large range of slab sizes, it is an ideal choice for any application in the kitchen.
Moon White Granite comes from a mine in India where rust and taupe colors predominate due to oxidation over millions of years. The slab colors are consistent year after year which makes this ideal for doing one countertop at a time if the budget demands it. Rarely, if ever, does this granite have black spots.
White Galaxy Granite is one of the granites mined in China. The striking blue, gray swirls and dark blue specks that occur in this granite is the key to its personality.
White Fantasy granite is one of the best for a marble-like finish.
