21 Dec Benefits of granite shower enclosures
Once you’re bitten by the granite bug, there’s no shaking it off. Just one look at this beautiful, natural stone is enough to want it. If you’re feeling the same way right now, you might be considering it for a shower enclosure. If so, you’ll find the benefits of granite shower enclosures below, to help you decide if they are right for you.
Granite is a natural stone. It is not engineered. Every slab of granite is unique, featuring its own distinct pattern and grade. If you want to your shower enclosure or wet room to have an exclusive look, then granite is the best stone choice.
In addition to offering an exclusive finish, granite is also available in a wide range of different colours. We have partnered with International Stones to bring you an unbeatable selection of granites from all over the world. So, whether you want something sparkly or something red, you can have it with granite.
Granite is an extremely durable, natural stone. Rated at 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, granite is impervious to everyday wear and tear, and it is also chemically inert, which means cleaning products won’t damage it over time.
Sealed granite is near impervious to damage
When sealed, granite becomes non-porous and is near impervious to damage. We recommend sealing granite every six months for a shower enclosure, to ensure it remains completely waterproof. Sealed granite is highly resistant to mould, although limescale cannot be avoided. Thankfully, simply wiping down the granite with a soap will remove any unsightly limescale, bringing the granite to a shiny lustre.
Unparalleled sophistication, luxury and class
While quartz has some practical benefits over granite, granite has sophistication, class and luxury on its side. Simply, this natural stone is beautiful and makes a statement wherever it is installed. For shower enclosures, granite is an excellent choice because the polished finish catches the light. Water cascading down it also looks wonderful.
