This can be one of the biggest considerations when it comes to choosing between granite and quartz. Everyone’s got a budget and the majority tend to want to stick to it fit they can.
Now we might be talking about cost, but let’s face it with either of these materials you’re still going to be paying a fair bit for either of them. Granite is usually priced at around £45 per sqft though prices will increase rather quickly from that point, while quarts can be anywhere between £50 and £70 per sqft.
Here is a bit more info for to help you make a decision.
Unless do you do find some granite that fits in to the £45 range then you’re more than likely going to be spending more on granite than you would on quartz. The price can vary depending on the manufacture, the colour and the pattern of the granite, though in recent years the price of granite counter tops has decreased significantly since their arrival on the market.
Because granite is a natural rock and will have to be excavated from the ground as a full slab and then shipped, this takes up a lot of time and energy resulting in more cost to the consumer. With granite slabs you will have to be prepare to spend more the thicker it is and remember the thinner it is the weaker it is.
At the end of the day you’re generally going to be paying a little more for granite, but it will only be an insignificant difference. The more important thing is keep to your budget the best you can and choose the quartz or granite that you decide will give your kitchen the finish your after.
