Granite is the perfect choice for a kitchen makeover

In today’s blog, we’re going to take a look at how granite worktops can be used in kitchen makeovers. As the heart of the home, the kitchen needs to be somewhere you love to be. This can be difficult if you are fed up of the current design. Discover some great contemporary design ideas for your kitchen  and learn how granite is a fantastic choice for kitchen worktops and surfaces.  


Making use of your space with granite worktops and more 

Breakfast bars and kitchen islands aren’t just for large kitchens. With the right design assistance, your kitchen could soon include a versatile island with many uses. A kitchen island encourages socialising and is great for keeping conversations going with guests while you prepare a meal. It’s also a lovely space to include the entire family in a cooking activity. If you’ve never considered putting a central island in your kitchen, now is the time to do so. An island can also include a breakfast bar area, and some designs offer spaces where stools can be safely tucked away after use. As granite worktops are available in so many different designs, it will be simple to select one that complements the space. 


Why should I consider granite worktops when restyling my kitchen? 

Granite is a low maintenance material. The engineered stone can help to keep bacteria at bay as spillages won’t seep into the polished granite. Not only are granite worktops easy to maintain, they are also scratch, stain, and heat resistant. When spillages occur, all you need is a damp cloth and a weak detergent solution to wipe them up and keep the surfaces clean. In addition to being practical, granite worktops are available in a variety of styles and colours, each choice as beautiful as the last. 


What styles are available? 

Here at Stone Synergy, we provide a fantastic range of granite worktops in various colours and assorted styles. One of our most colour-popping styles is the Simply Granite Tan Brown. This gorgeous worktop displays a black backdrop with orange/brown details. A bold choice, this worktop is quite contemporary in its style and is becoming extremely popular. Another eye-catching option is the Simply Granite Black Forest Honed which is a mesmerising collection of grey and white waves. The theme of this worktop gives a relaxing ambience to the kitchen as well as an elegant touch.  


How can I enhance my new granite worktops? 

Your new granite surfaces will provide a wow factor all by themselves, but there are ways you can ensure they retain the attention. Lighting is a really simple way to update your kitchen and make an otherwise simple kitchen stand out. One way to do this it to introduce a low-hanging chandelier placed over the centre of a kitchen island. This is so elegant and provides a beautiful centre-piece, as well as lighting, to a well-used part of the kitchen. Lights fitted just beneath cupboards that shine onto counter tops are also effective at enhancing the design of a kitchen while also being practical. 


How do I take care of my new granite worktops? 

It’s very simple to maintain your granite work surfaces. As they are heat resistant you don’t need to worry if you place hot pans directly onto them. Spillages on granite worktops merely need to be wiped up with a light detergent. Busy family homes can look forward to enjoying their worktops for many years to come as granite is so durable. Your new worktops will be fitted carefully and with expert precision. Maintaining these worktops is very simple, which is one of the reasons so many people choose granite for their kitchens.
