Granite Worktop Prices

Various factors determine granite worktop prices. Granite is mined from solid stone and is available for commercial use as scant slabs in an average thickness of 30 mm. The standard finishes are either polished gloss or honed matt finish, with colour and grain variations. From the perspective of looks, maintenance, sealing, durability, flexibility of design, longevity, and price, kitchen granite can find few worktops to match its features. All these factors add up when figuring out granite worktop prices.

These solid stone worktops, endowed as they are, with beauty, hardness and utility value are said to account for gold standard in the modern kitchen worktops. These granites come in extraordinarily breathtaking colours and grains, from around the world, owing to the fact that two quarries are never known to have the same strain of stone. They make for excellent kitchen countertop.

It is a regrettable to note that the stone industry has not yet brought materials, pricing and quality under any sort of control, thus enabling each actor, from the quarry, the importer, the fabricator and the dealer to establish an outlandish price of their choice, the customer being the Guinea pig at all times. Some dealers are known to mark-up their products by up to 50%. We at the Worktop Factory have tried to instigate the most transparent pricing system within the UK stone industry. All of our prices are available to obtain an online quotation without the manual intervention of manual price hiking.

Granite worktop prices are known to range on an average from £60 to £440 per square metre, and the dealer, at his discretion could decide whether to include the cost of installation in these prices. Those seeking cheap granites may find discount granite at a price of £40 per square metre excluding installation. The stone itself is relevant only marginally in the kitchen worktop prices. Finishing (half /full round), transportation and installation are the additional factors that render it an expensive product. While making an estimate, worktop prices, including installation should be considered.

Granite is generally categorized into four groupings. The premium products that fetch the best prices take the first place. The gradation of pricing structures, is based on factors like, country of origin, thickness of the slabs, colour, veins, patterns and the estimated softness of the materials that are available within the granite and most importantly the trend of the season. In some of the granite, you can observe a pattern within a colour, which may give it a high quality and premium product status and leverage its price upwards. It would be prudent also to check on granites from the lower tier; they may have similar colours as the upper tier and may be harder but much cheaper.

Granite stones with a 28 mm thickness instead of the standard 30 mm, laminated with backing of plywood or MDF are considered a cheaper option. This is an overlay material which is generally around 6mm in thickness. It is generally perceived that this imitation material will be cheaper than the full thickness of actual granite, but nothing is further from the truth. Historically, when granite did not have the demand it has in the current climate, and there was less availability, the prices were considerably higher. Partially owing to less availability also to dodgy factory owners. Now with the level of popularity has, this is a thing of the past. We cannot honestly remember the last time an overlay competitor was cheaper than our price for the real material.

In the final analysis, the granite worktop prices will depend entirely on the granite slabs that you select and the fabricator, whom you appoint to install it. That beauty is always adjudged by the buyer, applies perfectly to granite also, as even cheaper granite from the world over, will dazzle you with their colours, some less expensive, with the cheapest discounts, some more expensive, but on an average, the granite worktop prices would range from £60 to £300 per square metre as an average price indication.
