Your kitchen is the heart the home. It’s the centre of the family’s beginning and ending to the day. It’s where nutritious and delicious meals are prepared and family interactions happen. What was once thought of as a purely functional space, has become a social hub for the family to bond and to entertain friends. Traditionally, kitchen finish choices were based on function and practicality. Nowadays, kitchen design and style are also crucial elements to consider and many are turning to granite as a stylish solution to their kitchen needs.
These days, modern kitchen design trends favour a minimalist aesthetic. Across most styles – Coastal, Contemporary, Hamptons or Scandinavian – natural palettes and muted tones reign supreme, and encourage you to explore your creativity with styling and accent pieces.
Due to their coastal location, many homes in the Sutherland Shire and Sydney Bayside area are opting for a Coastal or Hamptons kitchen design. The recent influx of renovating TV shows, celebrity interior designers and social media influencers has seen more people gain confidence in their interior design preferences. Granite surfaces are a must, and many are now requesting stand out features such 2 tone kitchens, open shelving or timber elements for added warmth and texture.
Design wise, stone is an ideal choice for worktop surfaces as it’s available in neutral shades ranging from white and warmer tones to grey and black. This is a perfect backdrop on which to base your kitchen colour scheme. What’s more, granite is quickly and easily laid down as a benchtop, or on the splashback wall. As a resurfacing option, our stone provides the added benefit of saving on the cost of demolition. Benchtops and Spalshbacks can be installed with minimal mess, time and waste.
Granite has fast become the material of choice in kitchens and laundries, especially for benchtops. Besides aesthetics, the durability of granite means it’s also strong enough to handle the toughness of day-to-day treatment.
While diamond is obviously the hardest material with a Mohs scale ranking of “10/10”, granite’s score is “6/10”.
Our exclusive stone measures at a hardness of “8/10” or higher! While that’s an impressive score for toughness, our stone is also Heat, Sratch and Stain resistant; properties you won’t find in other stone choices.
