Contrary to the expectations of most buyers, not all granite materials are as expensive as they think.
Salt & Pepper, or G603, is a popular granite from China used in many number of applications because of its competitive price and large availability.
It is a perfect balance of black, white, and silver specks throughout its surface, hence the name.
The monochrome effect allows interior designers the freedom to bring accent points into the room with other accessories. It is a stunning complement to high gloss black and white paint, or even the warm tones of natural wood doors. In addition, it works well with other natural stones having different colors.
Commonly used in floorings and wall claddings, Salt & Pepper also works for countertops, coverings, curbings, and tombstones. It is often the choice for large-scale projects because of its incredible value for money.
Being a durable material, it can accept well most types of finishings. For interior applications, Salt & Pepper is polished to bring out its smooth and shiny surface.
On the other hand, a flamed or bush hammered finish is used to obtain a rough, highly textured, non-slip surface finish which is ideal for exterior flooring applications, such as poolsides and pavements.
Like all other natural stones, Salt & Pepper requires the application of sealer to protect its surface. In addition, spills from cooking oil, coffee, or any other liquid must be wiped away immediately to avoid staining.
