Granite worktops – when light is right

Posted on: No Comments supplied and fitted this bright Angel Cream granite worktop for our friends at Hothe Fine Kitchens, Ruthin, North Wales
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 “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.

Marble worktops help Piccolino Cicchetti win Design award
WE love quartz worktops. We love granite worktops. And we love marble, period. Natural and engineered stone surfacing is what we do. So it’s nice now and then to have our work recognised. Well this stunning Calacatta Oro Italian marble bartop has just helped our friends at Piccolino Cicchetti scoop a big gong at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards (RABD) 2013. Hardly surprising given just how drop-dead-gorgeous the place looks (take a squizz at some more pix here). The clever folks at Robert Angell Design International dreamed up this ensemble of classic marble, olive green upholstery and glossy black panels to nail the Best Multiple Restaurant (London) category. We chipped in with some bull-nosed edge finishing and first-rate craftsmanship to unite their delightful form with our famous functionality. To enjoy the fruits of our labour over a relaxing glass or two you can find Piccolino’s at Heddon Street, London, W1. Our founder Bill Evans – learn a little more about his fascinating life in stone here – said: “It’s always pleasing to be part of such a successful project. We have hundreds of domestic and commercial contracts a year and they all get the same care and attention. Two of our projects were shortlisted at the RABD this year – so hopefully we’re doing something right.” At, we know that buying quartz or granite worktops for your kitchen is a real investment for our residential customers.

Cimstone Smyrna

Posted on: No Comments

Cimstone Smyrna is a warm grey ‘marbled’ quartz worktop with light cream ‘cat’s paw’ faux veining.  A smart way to get the look of natural stone with the benefits of man-made composite. Decent value for this type of finish.
