CHOOSING THE RIGHT WORKTOP
Granite is a natural stone formed over millions of years, this material consists of minerals (predominately comprised of quartz and feldspar) being pressed together under immense heat, over time granite blocks are created, this beautiful material will then be sliced into slabs. The pattern and colour will be dependent on factors such as heat and pressure.
Marble is a stone which is formed when limestone is exposed to high pressure and temperature, this natural stone normally comes in variations of white with veins however we offer other colours. Marble is less porous than granite however less durable than granite.
Due to its natural nature Marble is often seen as a luxury stone, one of the most iconic buildings created in marble is the Taj Mahal.
Quartz is made from crushed quartz and resin making it one of the most durable materials. As this is a non-natural /manufactured stone there will be colour consistency as well as offering a far wider range of colours and patterns. Quartz is non-porous and does not require sealing unlike granite. This is a great option if you are looking for a low maintenance worktop.
