A closer look at our granite stone sinks

Don’t take your sink for granite! When choosing a new sink for the laundry, kitchen or bathroom, consider one of Cefito’s composite granite sinks. With a host of benefits, they’re also gorgeous and durable to last a lifetime.

What is granite?

Granite is an igneous rock (formed out of molten rock) that is mainly comprised of quartz and feldspar. Naturally, it usually comes in red, pink, grey or white colours with dark mineral grains. When it comes to commercial stone, granite usually refers to any crushed, crystalline stone with visible, interlocking grains and is distinctly different to marble.

What is granite used for?

Granite is most used in interior and exterior design for its durability, strength, heat resistance and stain resistance. You don’t need to take our word for it – many famous buildings are made from granite like Mount Rushmore, the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, many ancient pyramids (including in the Pyramid of Giza) and the Cairn of Barnenez.

Nowadays, we don’t have to be making a monument to use granite. We use granite in everything from walls to pavers, ceiling to floor. While we do still use raw, polished granite, we also use a lot of composite granite that is made from a mix of granite and quartz stone dust and acrylic resin. At Cefito, we use composite granite in our stone sinks to bring you the best of granite at an affordable price.

Why do we use composite granite?

Composite granite has a lot of benefits:

  • You can find them in a wide variety of solid, consistent colours.
  • They are more durable than other sinks without compromising on style.
  • They are more affordable than solid granite sinks.
  • They are incredibly easy to maintain, and the smooth surface makes them bacteria resistant.

There are, of course, some drawbacks:

  • If you’re after the varied mineral look, it’s difficult to recreate perfectly in composite granite.
  • They are more expensive than basic steel sinks.
  • The hardness makes the sink durable, but everything else more breakable.

At Cefito, we strive to help you reach your renovation goals within budget, without compromising on your dream. Composite granite makes it easy to provide you a high-quality sink that will stand the test of time, no matter where or how you use it.
