Black Pearl Worktops West Sussex Crawley Sink & Tap Installations

Mr and Mrs D had a new kitchen with oak doors, and chose our Black Pearl Granite worktops to complement the wood. We also supplied an Etroduo sink from the 1810 company, with the Curvato tap in bushed steel. This sink/tap combination has been available at a very good price for some time and we have sold many units to satisfied customers.

As Crawley is right on our doorstep, and we always hold plenty of Black Pearl granite in stock, templating and installation were swift and simple, leaving our customers a minimum period without kitchen worktops.

The creamy-grey mottle in these Black Pearl granite worktops coordinates with natural wood really well, and oak especially.

As with many of our customers, Mr and Mrs D chose to have their windowsill in granite to match the worktops. Whereas in some cases upstands need to be made especially high, or cut down, here we were able to fit the sill directly over our standard upstands at 100mm.

The Etroduo sink and Curvato tap match each other and work perfectly with black granite. Here the parallel drainage grooves run into the small bowl to the right: other configurations are possible. The one-and-a-half bowl unit fits neatly into a 600mm cabinet.

Brushed stainless steel for the tap, while a little more expensive than chrome, has a warmer look which blends well with natural materials, and also matches the stainless steel sink more closely.

Although many people do place very hot items straight onto granite worktops with no ill-effects, we cannot recommend it due to very occasional cracking problems where the granite has become very cold. This trivet, available in Debenhams, provides an elegant and flexible solution.

Although Black Pearl is in our least expensive granite range, with a definite creamy-grey mottle as seen in other photos, it loses nothing to Nero Assoluto (our blackest and more expensive stone) when it comes to the reflectivity of its high polish.
