Granite Bar Worktops – Overview
Granite has been celebrated and utilised in design for thousands of years, and for good reason – it can be a stunning addition to any space.
100% naturally sourced, granite worktops are quarried, before being cut to size and polished to a beautiful finish. Because it’s natural, granite comes in a wide variety of colours and patterns, ranging from the subdued to the spectacular. You won’t, however, find granite in brighter, less natural tones.
Hardwearing by nature, granite worktops are naturally non-porous, making them extremely resistant to heat, pressure and water damage.
Quartz Bar Worktops – Overview
Unlike granite, quartz doesn’t have a storied history to lean back on, but it does have some distinct advantages for bar worktops. Most notably? The sheer variety of design.
Because quartz worktops are manufactured by combining natural quartz stone with resin and decorative pieces, they’re not only extremely tough in day-to-day use, but they can be customized in a dizzying array of styles, from the natural all the way to the bold and modern.
For bars looking for something a little different, quartz is a terrific option, as it also retains the water, heat and damage resistance of granite.
