Choose Your Granite Finish for a Personalised Look
There are many ways to customise the look of your black granite worktop to match your unique style. We understand that your worktop must blend with the other elements of your space to create the right aesthetic. Choosing the granite finish is one of the ways in which you can subtly alter the appearance of your worktop to match the design of your room. At Prestige Granite & Marble, we can help you choose the appropriate finish from the following options:
A polished finish will result in a glossy, mirror-like surface that enhances the natural colours and variations of the stone, such as the specks or crystals embedded in the surface. In addition, a polished finish will help seal some of the natural pores in the stone, which will make it more durable and prevent you from having to regularly reseal it. This makes a polished finish an ideal choice for worktops that will see a lot of daily use like those in kitchens.
This finish is the perfect option for homeowners who like subtle textures and colours. Though a honed finish creates a smooth matte or satin appearance, the surface will still have subtle textured nuances. Worktops with a honed finish are more porous, and as such, will be more vulnerable to stains and will require frequent resealing. As long as you reseal the surface a few times a year, you can still expect a honed finish to look great for many years.
Advantages of Black Granite Worktops
You can’t go wrong when you choose to install granite worktops at your North West home. But you may find it difficult to decide on the colour of the granite you want. While you’ll have plenty of options to choose from, you’ll want to consider the pros and cons of each one. Black granite is an excellent option for many reasons, and we have plenty to choose from at Prestige Granite & Marble. We encourage you to consider the following advantages of black granite worktops when deciding which option is best for you:
Luxury and Elegance
Black is a sophisticated colour. Though it’s simple, it’s elegant and refined. Black granite is no different and is made even more luxurious with the shimmering flecks of natural stone and eye-catching veins of gold, yellow, or other similar hues. Because of this, black granite worktops bring an immense sophistication to any bathroom or kitchen you add it to. It creates a sense of depth within the space and will turn the heads of all who enter the room.
Enchances Other Colours
Because black is a neutral colour, it will make other colours in your room stand out. This enhances the design and style of your room overall. In addition, the startlingly black tones will look great in contrast to your stainless-steel appliances or white cabinets.
Granite is a type of mineral that is known for both its beauty and durability. This means your granite worktops will last for many years. Not to mention, they’re easy to maintain. All you have to do is keep them clean and seal them when necessary, and they’ll look beautiful for the long-term.
How to Clean & Maintain Black Granite Worktops
After you invest in a new granite worktop, you’ll want to be sure you take proper care of it. Though granite is relatively low-maintenance, there are a few routine tasks you’ll want to complete to ensure you maintain the durability and beauty of the surface. After all, a granite worktop is a significant investment, and you don’t want to squander it with poor care. Our team is here to answer any questions you have about cleaning and caring for your granite worktop. We’ve compiled a shortlist of useful tips to help you maintain your granite:
For daily cleaning, a microfiber cloth, even a dry one, is usually all that is needed. This will remove any surface dust, food particles, or other debris that has accumulated.
Whenever you spill something on your granite worktop, you need to act quickly to clean it up and prevent staining. Though granite is somewhat resistant to staining, it can still happen, so it’s best to address spills and other messes right away. Try wiping up the spill with a cloth and water only. Don’t use any harsh or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the surface.
Your granite worktop will require routine sealing. This is not a task that should be ignored, as the surface needs to be properly sealed to ensure protection. A good way to determine if your worktop is in need of resealing is to splash a little water on the surface. If the water no longer beads up, it’s likely time to reseal. Staying on top of regular maintenance will ensure your worktop will last for many years.
