Granite is often considered the gold standard of countertops. There are so many different styles and colors of granite. You’re bound to find one you love for your kitchen or bathroom. Granite can be simple and minimalistic, or it can be a work of art that you make the focal point of the room.
Granite is a natural stone that’s mined at quarries in slabs. It’s a stone made up of quartz, feldspar, and other naturally occurring minerals. Different individual minerals combine with the base materials, creating all the different colors and patterns that you associate with granite. The visual quality of granite is unmatched. Every piece is unique, making it a great choice as a statement piece. In addition to being used for countertops, granite often makes flooring as well.
The Benefits of Granite
Granite is one of the strongest materials you can get for your countertop. The hardness of the stone makes them ideal for everyday use by resisting scratches and chips. They’re durable and can last for decades once you have them installed. They’re up to food preparation and other everyday wear and tear. They’re a worthwhile longtime investment because you won’t need to replace or refinish them, aside from sealing them occasionally.
Not only are they durable for chips and cracks, but they’re also heat-resistant. Your cooking utensils can rest right on the countertop without worry. Because they’re naturally-sourced, they’re environmentally friendly. It’s non-toxic and it isn’t something you have to replace frequently.
Another benefit is how easy they are to clean. Particularly if you have kids, you want something simple to clean because it will take on a lot of messes. They don’t soak up spills or harbor bacteria as other materials may. It’s almost impossible to stain. To clean granite, you simply have to wipe it down with a damp cloth and maybe a specialized cleaner meant for stone.
Granite is one of the most expensive countertop materials. However, it’s a good long-term investment because of the value it adds to your home. If you plan on selling your home, granite countertops are among the most sought-after things. It’s a very heavy material, so you’ll also need quality cabinetry to support the weight fully.
