Natural stone is a long-lasting material that lends organic beauty and luxury to your home. Granite countertops are one of the most popular choices for use in both kitchens and bathrooms. This rock, which is formed as magma cools deep inside the earth, is often mined in areas such as Brazil, China, India, Finland, and Norway.
Granite is an excellent choice for countertop material because it is extremely durable, making it a great investment during a bathroom or kitchen remodel. It is difficult to scratch and can stand up to years of abuse from children, pets, and cooking activities. Granite can withstand high temperatures without burning, cracking, or discoloring, making it ideal for kitchen countertops. Furthermore, its polished surface is not only beneficial for baking purposes, but it will not wear away or grow dull with time.
Because it is formed through natural processes that vary with time and location, each piece of granite is unique. Every piece of stone contains a slightly different coloration, pattern, and veining. This means that your new kitchen or bathroom countertops are truly a one-of-a-kind piece of art that will add value and aesthetic appeal to your home. Despite this fact, there are enough overall similarities between rock mined from the same location that you can easily match the look of your countertops to achieve a coherent look in your kitchen or bathroom.
Ease of Care
Granite countertops are not only long-lasting, they are resistant to bacteria and easy to clean as well. All you’ll need to clean your countertops on a daily basis is a soft sponge, water, and mild dish soap. Sealants are a great protective measurethat will keep your stone countertop from absorbing liquids, making cleanup even easier and preventing any stains.
