East Grinstead Azul Platino Bespoke Granite Kitchen Worktops Felbridge Surrey

Mr and Mrs L built a superb vaulted extension onto their spacious and beautiful Felbridge (East Grinstead) home, the perfect light and airy backdrop for their new dream kitchen.

To create the required look they chose Howdens’ Glendevon kitchen units in grey and Azul Platino granite worktops from Affordable Granite.

Azul Platino is a material which has attracted a lot of attention over the last year or so, and, although we do not stock it as standard, we have installed it in several kitchens on a bespoke basis.

Inexpensive compared to the Premium granites, it offers a lot of pizzazz for your money, with a subtle natural glitter which sets it apart from other grey speckled stones. We love it!

Worktops East Grinstead

Azul Platino is a light to mid-grey and white granite. It has a strong mottled texture, a subtle hint of creaminess and a distinct natural sparkle. As a result it blends in well with a variety of kitchens, taking on & reflecting the colours of lighting and surrounding units.

As with many of our customers, Mr and Mrs L opted for a granite windowsill with an extra-high up-stand for that section only. This is attractive, more economical than high up-stands all round, and extremely practical in use as the sill is so easy to wipe down.

The island has 70mm radius corner posts, with the overhang on the worktop giving curved corners at about 90mm radius. These are safer than sharp corners if you walk into them, and enhance the beauty of the island.

A large island in a purpose built kitchen like this can be absolutely stunning. The picture speaks for itself. Although for lighter colours, quartz worktops have become more common, granite worktops like this still hold their own for beauty and practicality.
