We like to explore the positives in your kitchen choices here at Bettinsons Kitchens Leicester, so we wanted to take you through some of the benefits of granite work tops. However, there are many other options to explore when designing your beautiful new kitchen in Leicester.
Heat Resistance – Granite resists heat really well, so it’s placement near to cooker tops of beside the hob will work really well. The great thing is not having to quickly put a protective board down when removing a pan quickly from the stove, because the granite will cope with the heat and no damage will be caused to the work top.
Hard Wearing – Granite is substantially hard wearing and extremely resistant to scratches. This means you will get a lot of wear out of it. However, remember that its hard substance will dull knife blades, so it will be important to use boards for cutting to maintain the quality of your kitchenware.
Stain Resistant – As long as it is sealed correctly, granite is resistant to stains and won’t absorb liquids such as, wine or oils and won’t hold onto bacteria. Correctly sealed granite maintains its beautiful appearance really well and it is easy to keep surfaces as clean as new.
Granite is certainly aesthetically pleasing on the eye and great to use for work tops with many shades to choose from. Granite will blend in well with kitchen cupboards and more than likely become the centrepiece of your beautiful new kitchen.
