ABOUT GRANITE WORKTOPS
Granite is the hardest stone after the diamond. Granite has a very dense grain and is virtually impervious to staining. Granite worktops can be used to cut and chop, and hot pans can be rested on granite worktops without damage. Granite worktops can be cut to fit any kitchen, and can be provided with a variety of square and rounded polished edges. Openings can be cut into granite worktops for sinks and hobs, and grooves can be provided for draining surfaces. A wide variety of colours is available for granite worktops; these are mostly shades of black, brown, and pink. Leading UK suppliers of granite worktops are profiled after the panel of sponsored links.
