Granite- Favorite for Kitchen counters & Charupadi






Granite is a natural stone available in various colours and patterns. In the Construction Market, Granite is available in polished form and is used mostly in the verandah and kitchen areas in Kerala Homes. The price normally ranges between Rs.65 and Rs,260 per sqft. Luxurious brands may even cost about Rs.275 to Rs.300 per sqft.
The price of black granite is around Rs.120 to Rs.140 per sqft. Sometimes a layer of chemical polishing is applied to avoid moisture absorption.
Flame finished granite can be used at places where you require a rough finish- like bathroom floors.
Granite is extensively used for charupadi and kitchen slabs these days.
Granite does not lose its color or lusture with time. You should be careful to assess the surface finish of the granite slab at the time of purchase.
Viewing the surface against bright light will reveal surface defects. Disadvantage of granite is that it easily forms surface scratches and the inability to rectify defects by polishing.
