Black Granite Worktop Ideas

Posted on: No Comments

This black and grey speckled nero impala granite was installed by worktopenvy.comWORKTOPENVY loves supplying black granite worktops because there are so many types and it’s so darned versatile. Black granite’s special among natural stone because it works exceptionally well both in modern and more rustic spaces. Here we see mid-grained African Nero Impala grey-and-black granite worktops elevating an oak farmhouse kitchen into a thing of beauty. Subtle pencil-rounded edge finishing mirrors the curves of the Aga range while the highly-reflective surface creates a sense of space. And best of all? This is beautifully affordable granite. Not that it’s the only option on the market. For really keen value and a superbly lustrous finish it’s difficult to look beyond Indian Black Pearl granite, which in our humble opinion is among the most underrated natural stones out there. Black Pearl has a slightly coarser grain than Nero Impala and sometimes carries hints of deep green and grey in its crystals, but enjoys overall uniformity and looks particularly nice with a recessed draining area like the one here. Then there are the lesser-known options like Blues in the Night, alias Angolan Blue, a material that’s flecked with gorgeous cichlid-blue nuggets of labradorite, a gemstone sometimes associated with the Zodiac signs of Leo, Scorpio and Sagittarius. Britain’s most popular black is probably Star Galaxy granite, which with its flecks of bronzite very much does what the name suggests; shimmers under direct light like a night sky (click here for more on using this stone in your home). Finally we have the ultimate in pure black granite Nero Assoluto, which looks stunning either polished or in a matte honed finish, which gives it a slate-like appearance.
