Deciding to renovate your kitchen is no easy task, and with so many different aspects that you will probably need to change, it can be very easy to choose furnishings and decorations simply because they are easily available rather than choosing them because they are perfect for your room.
As renovations should be seen as an investment rather than a “make do” solution, it’s important to ensure that you are using materials which are long lasting as well as attractive.

So what is it about granite that makes it so perfect as a countertop material?
Being an igneous rock, granite is made up from various different materials such as quartz and feldspar. It is considered as one of the hardest materials available, which makes it incredibly popular in instances where durability is key- just like in a kitchen or flooring environment!
When in its natural form, it is also stain resistant, making it easy to clean which is vital in food preparation areas and is heat resistant, allowing for hot plates and pans to be placed on the surface without damaging the surface.
It is one of the most popular building materials and has been used for thousands of years in various building projects all over the world to give the impression and grandeur and elegance.
Low Maintenance Material
Believe it or not, the only maintenance that you need to worry about when it comes to a granite surface is a routine clean with mild soapy water and a yearly reseal to ensure that your granite remains scratch-free.
Keeping your granite worktop clean will help remove the chances of bacteria building up on the surface, but the cleaning routine remains the same as any other worktop surface; no extra effort needed!
Value for Money
The amount of wear that you will get out of your granite worktop will be unrivalled. As we mentioned at the start of this blog, a renovation is something that you will want to make sure is right from the outset and all the furnishings and materials that you use should last you for a good few years.
As granite is extremely strong and durable thanks to its formation process (It’s essentially molten magma which is cooled under the earth’s surface until it hardens!), it can withstand more wear and tear than other worktop materials.
