Whether you are building your home from the ground up or planning a complete kitchen remodel, incorporating granite countertops into your kitchen design is a very popular choice. Granite countertops add an incredible appeal to your kitchen and bring a gorgeous natural product into your living space. Not to mention, granite countertops will increase your home’s value and potential buyer appeal in the years to come. The following are just some of the many benefits of choosing granite to complete your new kitchen.
The Durability of Granite
The only natural material that offers greater hardness than granite is diamond, and very few homeowners have that kind of room in their budget! Granite is literally as hard as a rock and can withstand extremely high temperatures. Even placing a hot pan directly on the surface will not cause damage to a granite countertop, which is a distinct advantage over wood, laminate and tile. Granite also resists scratching, chipping or cracking.
Granite is Virtually Maintenance-Free
There is very little that homeowners must do to keep their granite countertops looking like new. In fact, the only reason why homeowners choose to replace granite countertops is when they want to make a drastic overhaul of their kitchen design, not because their counters are faded or worn. Granite allows homeowners more time to enjoy their kitchen space and their family time, without the need for complicated and time-intensive maintenance routines.
Granite Offers a Multitude of Design Options
Because it is a natural product, no two slabs of granite will ever be exactly alike. Homeowners can choose from granite comprised of quartz, feldspar, mica or other crystals, all of which provide a distinct look. Color choices include black, white, gray, pink, beige and orange, just to name a few. Granite can be shaped into a wide range of edging options to create a custom finish.
Granite is an Affordable Material
Compared with marble or other countertop choices, granite offers a gorgeous, natural product at a reasonable price. This is especially true when you factor in the durability of granite countertops. Over the years, your counters will withstand the wear and tear that a kitchen is exposed to, and will emerge in virtually the same condition as the day it was installed. That alone makes granite among the most affordable kitchen countertop options.
