Granite worktops – when light is right

Posted on: No Comments

WorktopEnvy.com supplied and fitted this bright Angel Cream granite worktop for our friends at Hothe Fine Kitchens, Ruthin, North Wales
WANT
to see the light in your granite kitchen worktops? Let our Angel Cream granite convert you. For nothing unites the beauty of natural stone with that fresh modern look quite like this magnificent Indian material. As an alternative to the sometimes clinical colours of engineered stone quartz worktops, Angel Cream and its cousins River White and White Topazio are tough to beat – in every sense. Not only is granite among the hardest materials in nature but each slab is different, guaranteeing a truly unique worktop statement. Here our first-quality Angel Cream granite, with its tight ivory grain and tracts of beige and grey, gloriously finishes a superb shaker kitchen crafted by our friends at Hothe Fine Kitchens in North Wales. Proprietor Sam Hothe told WorktopEnvy.com: “The brief was simple – create something timeless yet modern. And Angel Cream works brilliantly with the matte white of the units but also picks up the warm colours of the traditional fired-clay tiled floor. We’re very happy with the results.” As with all ‘highly-directional’ granite – that’s to say with lots of movement within its patterning – it’s vital to choose a granite supplier that will work sensitively to ensure that movement flows with your kitchen’s requirements (trust us – nothing looks worse than expensive granite fitted together with clashing grains). Equally, light-coloured granite should be factory-sealed to protect against staining, something we do THREE times as standard.  To see samples of our stones up close and personal, you can visit our North Wales factory showroom serving Liverpool, Merseyside, Cheshire, Chester and Greater Manchester, or our South London showroom serving London, Surrey and the South East – or just click here.

Granite – What’s Trending?

Gorgeous brown and graphite grey granite with matte antiqued finish installed for Hothe Fine Kitchens by WorktopEnvy.comWHITE quartz worktops and their black granite cousins are Britain’s best-loved kitchen stone work-surfacing – amassing more than 8,000 UK Google searches every month. But for all the beauty and durability of natural granite like Absolute Black or quartz brands like Silestone and Cimstone, there are myriad lesser-known alternatives. And here is one of WorktopEnvy’s top picks for something that little bit different – matte-honed Antique Brown granite. Of the hundreds of stones we supply, this is an incredibly tactile granite worktop that’s almost satiny to touch. Up close and personal, its understated yet vivid graphite-like patterning shimmers gunmetal-grey and silver. Here, this gorgeous Italian material looks timeless on cream Shaker units built bespoke by our friends at Hothe Fine Kitchens, who supply their superior hand-made products to the North West of England and North Wales. Director Sam Hothe said: “We wanted contrast between our units and granite worktops in this kitchen but were keen to avoid anything too stark. When we supply a kitchen we’re always thinking about adding textures for interest, so the Antique Brown was a natural choice. It fulfils the role of black granite but with a more gentle overall finish. We specified softened corners around the ceramic Butler sink and we’re really pleased with the results. It goes without saying that we have high expectations of our quartz and granite suppliers and the guys at WorktopEnvy meet those expectations.” WorktopEnvy’s aim is to provide a web-leading selection of natural and engineered stone for customers across the country to enjoy. In the past month we’ve installed quartz and granite worktops in London, Surrey, Essex, Kent, Merseyside, Northamptonshire, Manchester, Birmingham and Dorset – with our commercial work also nominated for a prestigious Restaurant and Bar Design Awards gong. Add to that our website’s extensive Inspiration and independent style guide and it’s easy to see why WorktopEnvy.com is truly Britain’s granite and quartz worktop specialist. We make our worktops with love – and sell factory-direct. To learn more about our ordering processes or to get a quote click here – or Request a Call Back for a chat.
