Kitchen counter materials

Granite Concepts UK offer three different materials, each having their own unique properties.


Granite is a naturally-occurring stone with rich, almost organic, patterns and colouring. Formed over millions of years in the earth’s crust it is amazingly durable. It is the second hardest rock after diamond. Now more affordable than ever it will add a touch of class to any kitchen. Find out more at about our granite worktops or see the full range of Granite finishes.


Corian is the brand name for a solid surfacing material created by DuPont. It is composed of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate. Its primary use is for kitchen worktops and bathroom vanity tops. Solid surface materials are very versatile and can be joined, shaped and finished to create many products.
Please see our website devoted entirely to our Corian worktop range or see the full range of Corian finishes.


Quartz is in many ways the perfect worktop material. It has all the durable properties of granite, but comes in a wider range of colours and is easy to care for because it is man-made.

Pure quartz is colourless, but engineered quartz is made from 94% crushed stone and 6% bonding resin, colour pigment and mirror flecks. Find out more about our quartz kitchen worktops or see the full range of Quartz finishes.
