Haddon Kitchens & Cabinets can provide a wide range of benchtops for our custom kitchen renovations . As we specialise in complete kitchen renovations, we do not supply ‘benchtops only’ for existing kitchens or DIY kitchens.
As the name suggests, granite is a truly beautiful, natural product. It is extremely hard wearing, requires very little maintenance and can be used in a variety of situations including the popular granite kitchen benchtops and bathroom benchtops.
Granite has a certain style, a natural beauty not found in other types of kitchen bench tops . One of the main benefits of Granite benchtops is that because it is a rock formed 1000’s of years ago the style and colours are truly unique and no two slabs are exactly the same.
Granite countertops have a penetrating sealer applied to the stone in the factory and again at installation time. This watery solution is very easy to apply periodically and soaks into the pores of the stone. This will not only ensure that granite benchtops will remain in good condition but aims to prevent ongoing damage. The sealer clogs the pores of the granite benchtops thus allowing you more time to clean up spills when they occur.
Granite kitchen benchtops do not scratch as easily as marble so can be more durable as a kitchen surface. Granite kitchen benchtops are also relatively low maintenance and cleaned easily with a wet cloth and some certified cleaning products that will not damage the surface.
Yes, Granite is a hard wearing material, but to protect your knives and keep them sharp a cutting board is recommended.
