Since granite is such a versatile surface, it can be used in many ways. At Granite World, one common way is with white granite benchtops. One reason why it is optimally used as a granite benchtop is that it can take a beating and it also is very low maintenance. It is stain resistant, scratch resistant, and even heat resistant. This makes it the ideal surface to use in your kitchen because, by nature, any surface in this area will be subject to these kinds of components. You want something that will last and that you do not have to do much to maintain. You can get all of that with a granite benchtop.
