They say the kitchen is the heart of the home. When you consider a kitchen renovation, there are a number of factors to take into account, not least the appearance of the finished product. Granite for kitchens provides a stylish and elegant finish to any kitchen, elevating it from the “ordinary” to the “extraordinary”. With a number of finishes to chose from, including marble or stone effects, granite for kitchens can also increase the value of your home should you decide to sell.

Granite is the hardest wearing natural resource next to diamond, and contains quartz, giving it a sparkle in certain lights. It comes mainly in three colours: stone, black or red. Evidence of mining can be traced back as far as Ancient Egypt and it continues to be mined across the world.

Choosing granite for kitchens means your work tops remain at a comfortable temperature and are easy to clean. Surfaces are hard wearing and durable, and despite the initial financial outlay are guaranteed to last. They don’t chip or scratch and will continue to give your kitchen that “brand new” look for years to come.

Of course granite is not only for worktops. Why not enhance the look and feel of your kitchen further with granite flooring? Not only is it stylish, but it is also durable, easy to clean and stain resistant. Alongside pine or oak cupboards, it can create the “farmhouse kitchen” which will impress your guests and turn a house into a home.

People dream of owning the perfect kitchen. A granite kitchen provides the first step on the road to making this dream a reality. Granite surfaces and tiles will transform your kitchen into somewhere you want to spend your time. So chose granite and make your kitchen the heart of your home.
