Characteristics

All granite slabs have the same general characteristics, despite being mined in different countries. However, slabs of the same colour vary to a greater degree than man-made engineered stones. We recommend you inspect your slab’s colour and pattern prior to it being cut.

Country

Worldwide. We stock granite from Africa, India, Italy, and more.

Resistance & Durability

For normal kitchen use, it is scratch resistant. However it’s always a good idea to put down a mat or tea towel when laying down hard objects like pots, pans, and cutlery. Use a trivet or chopping board when placing down a hot pot or pan. As a natural stone, granite is porous – but it won’t stain if you are mindful, and clean up spillages as they occur. Avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals.

Care

Regularly clean using hot soapy water and a microfibre cloth. Dry the surface afterwards with a tea towel or soft cloth. We also stock a product called Lithofin Easy Clean which helps maintain the quality of your top.

Size

All slabs are available in 30mm thickness, and some colours in 20mm. It can be mitred to form thicker profiles, although this may not be possible in some colours.
