Making better choices
Careful consideration needs to be taken when selecting a natural stone countertop. Certain natural stones such as marble can stain and are therefore not suitable for hard working kitchen surfaces, but are better suited to bathroom applications. Granite, being harder than marble, is less prone to staining and therefore an ideal kitchen countertop material.
Granite is one of the hardest materials known to man, making it a durable and hygienic surface that is highly resistant to scratches and stains. Apart from being practical, granite adds a sense of opulence to kitchens, bathrooms and even commercial spaces. Whether for tops or tiles, granite is an investment homeowners will never regret.
Marble has been prized, celebrated and coveted for its timeless beauty for aeons, and with its naturally radiant colours and distinctive granular veins, it’s no surprise. Each piece is an individual work of art created by nature. Suitable for floors, walls, bars and vanity tops, marble is a beautiful and durable solution for any application.
