A – Z of bespoke colours previously installed by Affordable Granite

This list is by no means exhaustive of all possible stones suitable for granite kitchen worktops; names change and sometimes stones sold as granites are known by two or three different names.

Please also note that over time materials change and some quarries run out completely; if we are aware of difficulties obtaining material there will be some information in the availability section. Most importantly, many of these materials are extremely variable and we would recommend viewing/selecting the slabs personally.

£ – ££££££ is only a very rough guide and can depend on many different factors at the time of quotation. All these materials involve buying-in from wholesalers in the UK in order to fabricate your granite worktops.
