Kitchen Granite Vs Ceramic Tiles?
Everybody has a dream kitchen. Some may already have it, some may be looking to achieve it. A common question we are often asked is what are the advantages & disadvantages of granite vs ceramic tiles.
It ultimately comes down to personal preference about which material you want in your kitchen. Below are the pros and cons of granite and ceramic tiles.
The appearance of both can vary dramatically depending on the shade or colouring you require. Our design team can help with any interior layout queries you have. Perhaps your kitchen has more of a rustic, traditional feel. Then our team may suggest a natural granite work surface. We spend time selecting the appropriate stones to suit your individual needs. Whether it’s a deep magnetic black or a smoky grey finish you desire, NBC Construction can find the appropriate granite worktop to fit seamlessly into your kitchen.
With a ceramic tile the possibilities are vast. The tiles we use come in an array of colours, finishes, patterns and styles.

We believe your kitchen should be an extension of yourself, and choosing a ceramic tile will help you achieve a more personal look.
