Kinawa granite is a natural stone quarried in the Pantanal regions of Brazil from where it is exported to the UK and Europe.
It presents a white background; with very fine dark grey and black crystalline graining that offers unparalleled natural beauty interior and exterior architectural areas alike.
Kinawa granite (also known as Piracema granite) is suitable for use in kitchens, walls and floorings. It requires little maintenance r whilst providing sophisticated looks in both interior and exterior applications that require natural stone that offers a refined appearance with incredible performance characteristics and strength.
Granite is an ideal stone to work with, offering the possibility of having seamless pieces across large surfaces such as kitchen worktops, bar counters, bathrooms, cladding, and islands.
Moreover, you will find that when it comes to performance, the stone is great. The lack of calcium in granite ensures the stone does not etch like marble when exposed to acid present in lemons, oranges, etc
Besides this, you can choose granite that varies in shape, patterns and colours. As an example, slab sizes will usually cover areas of between 5.5 metre square and 6.5 metre square. In other words, is ideal for large areas such as kitchen islands as it can be installed seamlessly.
When it comes to thicknesses, 20mm and 30mm are the most popular. You can choose granite in standard finishes such as polished, honed, satin and leather. This significantly allows you to be inventive and create many options in terms of both design and style.
