The Benefits of a Granite Bathroom Worktop

Waterproof

Granite is able to trap the moisture in the air that would lead to mould, rotten walls and other problems. One of Granites amazing qualities is that it is waterproof, meaning that the bathroom vapours and water from the shower, bath or sink will not be able to penetrate the Granite Worktop or the tiles.

This is why Granite has become an excellent choice for Bathrooms to be able to always keep it clean, fresh and prevent any damage.

Easy to clean

Granite is a non-porous material that wont absorb any water, dirt, bacteria, soap or smells into the stone. They will only rest on the surface. This allows the surface to be wiper easily and therefore making them hygienic. Many customers find that all they need to do it wipe the surface down using a mild cleaner or soap and water along with a cloth to do this.

It is however, worth mentioning that you will need to think about the standing water if you have Granite tiles. It is therefore very important that you take precautions when using Granite for your flooring as it can be extreemly slippery when wet due to the water that will rest on the surface.

Durability

Granite is known as one of the toughest natural materials on the market. It makes it very hard to become damaged. It will not stain easily, its very hard to chip or break Granite tiles or to crack or damage a Granite Worktop. These make it ideal for a busy household.

Long Lasting

Granite is used as a building material in high traffic areas such as floors and courtyards as it is known for lasting centuries. If given the care it needs, Granite does not weather or fade so will keep in your house looking its best for years to come.

Aesthetically pleasing

Granite is a beautiful natural stone. Each slab of Granite is unique to your home. It is formed deep in the earths crust by extreme heat and pressure over thousands of years. This is why each stone for the many Granite quarries have their own unique qualities meaning no two are the same.
