Antico Dalia by Levantina Granite
Antico Dalia Granite Material Description
Antico Dalia is a cream, light brown, light grey granite material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Levantina company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Antico Dalia is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
Sturdiness, longevity and incredible heat resistance define granite worktops. Granite is a natural, volcanic rock full of compressed, melted and cooled down minerals that imbue this material with the renowned toughness. This is predominantly why granite is utilised for kitchen worktops, where cooking is constant and a threat of potential damage always looming.
With cream, light brown, light grey Antico Dalia granite kitchen worktops, you won’t have to worry about scratches or indents – even the sharpest knives cannot impact the integrity of granite. The same applies for intense heat. Granite can withstand even the highest temperatures, so the worktop can easily work as a stand for that boiling pot of soup or the red-hot oven dish, with no damage inflicted.
If regularly impregnated, the blemished & speckled Antico Dalia granite worktops also become water resistant. That means they will never warp, unlike wood or laminate worktops, nor stain or discolour. In almost every way, kitchen granite worktops are superior surfaces that aren’t only beautiful (as the sample above signifies), but are also functional tools that provide aid in the everyday kitchen life. Polish Granite are here to customise and adapt your natural stone into virtually any project. The possibilities for granite uses are infinite – this applies both to indoor and outdoor designs.

From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills.

What makes Antico Dalia so unique?
Product colour description:
Pale colours, like the shade of cream on Antico Dalia by Levantina instantly fill a given interior with youth, minimalism and brightness. If you possess a relatively darker kitchen, cream must be your go-to kitchen worktop colour. Cream worktops are an ideal addition to darker cabinets like black, green, dark brown, or dark grey flooring. However, a pairing with lighter shades also creates a gorgeous scheme, bestowing warmth and cosiness to the given interior.
Our light brown kitchen worktop colours, like Antico Dalia granite, embody the magnetic power of eye-attraction. They are intricate and unusual. At first, we associate light brown worktops with hardwood, often utilised for kitchen surfaces. But at second glance, the mocha-hued material ends the deception, and we realise (still enchanted), that we’re gazing at stone. Light brown kitchen worktops are superb for lovers of natural motifs, vintage accents and rustic spaces. The light brown + cream pairing is our absolute favourite.
The light grey colour of Antico Dalia by Levantina is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
Material structure & composition:
The thicker blemishes and occasional veins of Antico Dalia spread throughout the surface in an irregular manner. The blemished surface creates a stunning, organic-looking composition reminiscent of polished marble. Finally, the worktop can brim with life which emanates from the depths of the intricate veins. This wild, untamed and unpredictable appearance will be ideal for lovers of natural stone elements, complementing other raw materials like wood, metal or glass.
Material recommended for:
- Modern kitchens,
- Kitchen islands,
- Waterfall/mitred side panels.
Majority of our stone products, as Antico Dalia above, are speckled in nature. This means their composition comprises of small-to-medium contrasting veins and threads that spread across the slab surface in a usually regular manner. Like on a leaf, further mimicking the natural inspiration. This structure is a part of our marble-look, natural colour range – fantastic for almost any interior, modern and traditional alike.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops & full splashbacks,
- Modern and traditional interiors,
- General cladding.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The cream, light brown, light grey Antico Dalia by Levantina can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
