After finally deciding to amp up the whole look of your space by incorporating Granite worktops as the main part of the renovation, now the most exciting part begins: hunting for high quality granite worktops that would perfectly fit your kitchen.
As with most things, there are a lot of elements to look for when it comes to purchasing your worktops that could help you cop the finest pieces. After all, you want to take home the best of the best right?
Begin by visiting several showrooms so you can personally differentiate the assortment of colours, patterns, and styles the stores (or brands) have to offer. Remember though, high quality granite worktops always starts with top-notch granite stones.
Some buyers may prefer Brazilian over Italian granite, others may not be that picky as long as they get the design they want. Whatever it may be, always make sure to look at the thickness of the worktop before buying it as this is extremely important. Three-centimeter granite slab is likely to last longer and age better than the two-centimeter slab, though it would definitely cost you more money.
One more thing you have to know about Granite worktops is that, they can be made by hand or by machine. Understandably, the best ones are done by a skilled craftsman, but then again, you will have to pay extra cash for this level of quality.
One pro tip for home owners: why not make a compromise by having the majority of the worktop made by machine, and the final polishings done by a professional hand.
Installing the best of the best when it comes to high quality granite worktops is really going to cost you more than you expect it to, but don’t be disheartened if your remodelling budget isn’t quite ready for the task at hand.
There are still a lot of quality Granite worktops out there that are far more affordable and budget-friendly. Also, it will be unlikely that your family and friends will be any less delighted with the final results so long as the worktops look great!
