Period Properties – Choosing Stone

When you live in a period building, it means that you will need to find the correct balance between preserving the character of the building and adding features to complement your family’s preferences.

When it comes to the time when renovations are being considered, the choice of materials and character come to the front of your mind. Will you repair something original or go for something new for example? Or simply rip everything out and start again, whatever you choose, it is always a touch first decision.

Repair it, Renovate it or Restore it?

There are many building that need preserving to the best of our abilities. Just because something is hundreds of years old does not mean that it necessarily needs to be changed.

Some homeowners have the choice to make when renovating if they want to keep some original features in their home improvements or completely change the look altogether. This can be tough but one that is necessary at the beginning of the process to ensure you achieve the final look you desire.

You may want to keep the original tiles in your kitchen or the worktops. The list is endless and you can only do what is right for the household. Some of these options may have become brittle and need replacing for safety for example. Each project is unique and we will help you in anyway that we can. Transforming an older looking room into something fit for the 21st century is something of joy to be a part of for the modern family.

Matching Marble and Granite

Marble and Granite are natural stone that is formed in the Earth’s crust. Meaning, that stone which is made from different areas will have colour and property differentiations. This, therefore, means that no slab for your Kitchen Worktops will ever be the same and have a unique pattern.

This is why, when undertaking a old building project, you need to be aware that you will not be able to find the identical match for the current stone. Although, a close match can usually be found.

We can help you find the best match for you, showing you samples of the Granite Worktops that we offer. We can also shape the Granite Worktops to the shape and size that you require for your kitchen.

Choosing New Stone

Choosing new stone worktops will give your kitchen a new lease of life. Whether you are restoring something in your property or creating a whole new look, there is sure to be something to give your space that magic touch.

As Granite has developed over the years, there are many options of colour and textures to choose from. This is why samples of Granite that we stock is a great idea to come and view before making your final choice.
