Oct 4th 2014 at 10:01 PM

Stone worktops be they natural or man made are extremely popular in today's modern market and with very good reason too. Stone worktops in Ascot in particular have one of the highest sales rates in stone worktops nationwide. By stone worktops I mean that this encompasses granite, marble, and quartz as a whole.

All stone worktops have their positives and negatives but all round stone worktops tend to offer the same benefits regardless of material. In the Ascot area however, consumers seem to be leaning more towards the marble option for their stone worktop needs. Sales of marble worktops in Ascot are at an all time high so let us take a look at the differences in the stones that are available on the market and ascertain why people in Ascot may have such a high demand for marble as their worktop of choice.

Granite Worktops

the main seller of natural stone worktops on a nationwide basis is granite. Granite is an extremely durable and heat resistant material which is ideal for areas of high traffic and heat generation such as your kitchen. The only real drawback that granite has is that it is a porous stone and is quite easily susceptible to staining if the stone is not properly treated to make it water resistant. Granite also tends to come in cold dark colours which most people tend to prefer but it does give your room a cold feel to it.

Quartz Worktopsmm

Quartz worktops are the only stone worktop that is man made and as such is a cheaper option than it's stone counterparts. As it is man made it is also designed with the inferiorities of natural stone in mind and as such quartz worktops are around 98% non porous making them the most hygienic stone worktop on the market. Also as a man made stone quartz worktops also come in a staggering range of colours and patterns.

Marble Worktops

Marble worktops, the number one selling stone worktop in the area of Ascot. Marble is a very similar stone to granite in that the natural properties of marble are very similar making it extremely durable and heat resistant. It does however suffer from the same problem as granite in that marble is a porous stone which needs to be treated in order to raise it's water resistance. However unlike granite marble often tends to come in warm and inviting colours which give you a nice warm and inviting feel to your home. Homes with marble worktops often gain value due to the fact that marble has a fantastic look to it and as the kitchen is one of the main rooms to be concerned about within a family home having the value of your home increased with the addition of marble worktops can only be a good thing for you as both a consumer and a homeowner.
