Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best stone for kitchen countertops?

Choosing a stone kitchen worktop is a big decision since there are so many options. At County Stone, we offer a large variety of granite and stone worktops for your kitchen and we’re always happy to work together with you to make sure you find the perfect worktop for you.

At our showroom, you can see samples of our stone worktops as well as a selection of granite slabs we keep in stock. If you see one you like, we’ll put your name on it.

To make sure your stone countertop fits perfectly, our experienced and specialist team will take the dimensions of your kitchen. We’ll diamond-cut your chosen material to create a gorgeous bespoke worktop. The whole process is guided by your input, opinions and requirements to make sure that we create a worktop that best suits you and your home.

If you’re looking for inspiration, we have lots of blogs about kitchen worktops we’ve installed.

Get in touch to talk about the worktop you want. We’re always happy to guide you through the choices, to discuss alternatives and to provide you with prices.

What is the most durable stone countertop?

All of our worktops will stay in great condition almost indefinitely, as long as they’re not subject to throwing heavy cast-iron casseroles around! Granite and quartz are remarkably robust and can comfortably withstand most of the rigours of kitchen life.

Granite is a completely natural stone with beautiful natural veining. Granite stone is porous so we completely seal our granite kitchen worktops before fitting. It is generally a one-time process which prevents staining without degrading the appearance. Extreme heat (for example, a pan that’s just been removed from the cooker) is unlikely to damage granite if it’s left on top of it for a short time, but there’s a danger of the granite cracking if it’s left for longer than a couple of minutes. See our guide on granite and heat.

A quartz kitchen worktop is a composite predominantly of stone with a small amount of resin. Quartz is non-porous, very resistant to scratches and almost impossible to mark. With a look that is still natural but very consistent, it’s an understandably popular alternative to granite. Essentially quartz, in all the forms we offer, is just as strong as granite, but it’s also slightly flexible which aids precision fitting. 

To help you choose between granite and quartz we’ve put together this informative comparison.

What colour kitchen worktops do you have?

We offer a wealth of colour choices, with many variations on each colour theme. It’s always best to see samples of actual stone slabs in the flesh, so we encourage you to arrange a visit to our showroom.

We have over 280 options to choose from, so there’s an excellent chance that there will be something that’s exactly right for you. For a quick view of all that’s available, click on the links here:

You’ll see that you can filter the search results by material too, so you can see, for example, black granite worktops or white quartz worktops and a wealth of other possible selections.

What are your kitchen worktops made of?

We offer a variety of different kitchen worktops in a range of materials to suit whatever kitchen style you would like. We specialise in granite and quartz kitchen worktops, with a large range of stone finishes, including:

We also supply sleek, ceramic-based worktops available in a large array of colourways, grains and finishes:

All our stone worktops are finished to the highest standard, highly durable and designed to maximise longevity. Whatever material you choose, your worktop will stand the test of time.

What is the difference between different kitchen worktop materials?

At County Stone, we offer a number of different materials for use as kitchen worktops. To decide between materials, it’s worth knowing their characteristics.

Our granite kitchen worktops are sleek and stylish, perfect for a sophisticated kitchen that makes an impact. Granite stone worktops are also very strong and able to withstand the demands of everyday use.

Quartz worktops are another choice available at County Stone. These worktops are beautifully crafted to optimise efficiency and durability while being aesthetically appealing. Quartz stone is also stain-proof, non-porous and practically maintenance free. It’s also very hygienic, strong, and adaptable.

Check out the differences between granite and quartz.

Finally, Lapitec – a combination of sintered stone and ceramic materials – is the perfect worktop for someone looking for practicality, versatility and longevity in their kitchen. Lapitec is not only resilient and resistant to bacteria and dirt, but it’s also a beautifully aesthetic stone.

How can I repair my kitchen worktop?

If your County Stone kitchen worktop becomes damaged, paid repairs are possible for our customers, subject to our team being available. Smaller chips and scratches are most common around the sink area. More extreme damage, is often from dropped heavy pans. To see if, and when, we can help, we’ll initially ask you to send in a photo of the damage.

In the very unlikely event that there is a problem with the worktop itself, please contact us and we’ll come out to take a look. We’ll always see if there is a way we can help. Manufacturers’ warranties apply to most of our quartz products including Silestone and Caesarstone.

What height should I have my kitchen worktop?

When designing your kitchen, one of the key considerations will be the height at which you want your worktops – they’ll need to be easy to stand at and reach everything you need and should also prevent you having to bend too much while working.

There isn’t one set rule for worktops, especially when you’re having one custom made for your home. The industry standard is set at around 91cm, but you may wish to tailor your kitchen worktops to your personal preference. This is something we can help you with since we design every worktop with our client’s preferences in mind.

How do I clean my kitchen worktop?

If you’re only looking to quickly wipe a surface down, we recommend hot, soapy water or an all-purpose cleaner with disinfectant. But always check on the product packaging that it’s suitable for use on your worktop.

For stains, or for a more intense clean, you can use a cream cleaner such as Barkeeper’s Friend or Cif, or you could use a paste made with bicarbonate of soda and water. If your worktop surface is textured, then you may need to use a nylon bristle brush to get into all of the small nooks and crannies.
