The granite worktops
The first one of our comparison is the granite, which is a natural stone which will never fall out of fashion, so it will increase your home value. Due to its nature, the granite can be found in a large rank of colours and patterns. You can choose shades of granite in colours like: pink, black, brown, grey or even white which will add style to your room and will transform the worktop in the heart of the kitchen.

Even if it requires a regular sealing, it is very to maintain its luxurious look with mild detergent. You have to pay attention to the light coloured granite worktop because they are tent to absorb more liquid than the dark coloured ones.

The quartz worktops
The last but not the least on our list, the quartz worktops are considered to be a great alternative to natural stone, like the other ones (the granite and the marble). There are two types of quartz worktops: man-made and engineered composed of a 93 per cent of natural stone and 7 per cent of resin binders. The most popular quartz work surface is considered to be the white one, due to its elegancy. Also, the quartz worktops are easy to clean and maintain, fact which made from them a great choice for many homeowners. Another clue in choosing the quartz worktop is that they have a uniform look, so they can fit in modern or traditional styles.
