Why Granite Worktops in Basingstoke?
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in any home, which is why it’s not only important to have a functional set up. It is equally important to have a space that is aesthetically pleasing, and when you choose granite worktops, Basingstoke residents, that’s exactly what you will get. Here at Change of Style Granite & Stone Ltd, we take great pleasure in working with granite as a material.
To cut and hew the granite into the initial shape, we use water jet technology, diamond wire, and diamond blade saws. After this is where our team really come into their own, utilising methods gained over years of experience to refine and hone the slab into the attractive final product. These methods are what make our Basingstoke granite worktops so unique; these methods cannot be replicated by any machine.
In any kitchen, the worktops take a lot of impact, from pots and pans to chopping with knives, so it’s essential they’re strong enough to endure. Our granite worktops in Basingstoke are highly scratch resistant due to something called the Mohs hardness scale. A typical steel knife blade is between 5-6.5 on the scale, with granite between 6.5-7. What this means, is that it will be difficult to mark a granite surface as it’s harder than the knife. However, we do always recommend using a chopping board.
