Properties of granite worktops

Granite is a traditional and commonly used material for kitchen and bathroom worktops. The high hardness of granite and its resistance to abrasion mean that worktops made from this material are much more resistant to impact and scratches than most other commonly used materials such as laminate, wood or mineral (solid surface) worktops.

Granite consists of natural stone, including quartz, feldspar and minerals. Granite is quarried in the form of blocks in different parts of the world, e.g. India, Africa and South America. Granite is a natural material and therefore even the same granite varies in texture and colour. This has to be taken into account when implementing the project. On the other hand, the use of granite in worktops adds exceptional originality and uniqueness to the design.
