Our customers in Truro went for Silver Pearl granite worktops.
Silver Pearl, also known as Steel Grey, is very consistent in it’s appearance, large pieces of quartz are found in abundance amongst other smaller grains.
Lightly coloured kitchen units give the ideal contrast between the dark grey worktop.
Worktops run either side of the bell fast sink to take pride of place.
We created a set of drainer grooves on the right hand side.
A traditional bridge style mixer tap sits at the rear of the sink,.
When we install the worktops we always seal the underside of the sinks for you.
These worktops are 30mm thick.
Silver pearl granite worktops are quite long, the slabs are often 3.2m x 1.9m in size.
This allows you to minimize the number of joins in your kitchen.
A large granite splash back sits behind the oven.
We mill down the back of the splash back so it’s the same thickness as the upstands.
Which creates a nice detail at the junction.
The upstands are 80mm high, but the height can vary between 80mm & 100mm depending on personal preference.
So there you have it, another granite worktops installation by Everything Stone.
I’m sure you have probably read in many articles that granite will stain easily.
And these statements are true, so we seal all of our granite worktops before they leave our workshop.
We are certified applicators and stockists of Dry Treat Stain Proof, which is a micro porous sealant for natural stone and porcelain.
You can view all the necessary information on Dry Treats website here www.drytreat.com
Due to Dry Treats unique micro porous technology, the sealant actually lines the capillaries of the stone.
So it sits within the stone rather than on top like the old surface sealers used to.
This means that you don’t have to re-seal your worktops every 6 to 12 months.
You can go without re-sealing for many years.
A granite worktop is easy to clean and using hot soapy water is sufficient most of the time.
But if you want to clean your worktop with a cleaning product, then it’s best to use a Ph neutral product.
And we recommend using Hanafin Rejuvenata, which we also stock.
