Why Should You Choose Granite For Your Countertops

by Camila Holland

Granite is a beautiful stone that is can give your counters a one-of-a-kind look. Granite is a solid surface material that can be put in your bathroom or your kitchen, or anywhere else you need a countertop. If you are looking for a material for your countertops in your home, read on for a few reasons why you should choose granite for your next remodeling project.

It's A Natural Material

Granite is an all-natural material that can bring in some natural elements to your home for a beautiful and bold look. It's a solid surface, which means you don't have to worry about it peeling apart wherever it meets together with another piece; it's all one piece. There's no worry about it chipping, as it can take a lot to break granite. This stone can match with any decor you choose, as it's a timeless look.

It Comes In A Variety Of Colors

Granite comes in a variety of colors and styles, all of which will be one-of-a-kind. No two stone pieces will look alike as even the colors have a variation to them to give them a one-of-a-kind look. Colors can match your decorative style preference and can be patterned with a smaller pattern, or a larger pattern, so it looks good in small areas or on larger surfaces.

It's Easy To Clean

Granite is easy to keep clean and can be wiped down daily with a damp cloth. Clean it daily to remove day to day crumbs and other debris, or you can give it a deeper clean using a granite cleanser. The granite will need to be cleaned deeply regularly. At least every year or so, it should be sealed to protect it against water spots and other damage from spills. If it isn't sealed, the slightest spill can soak into the granite and leave a stain or other type of marking.

Granite Is Long Lasting

Granite is a long-lasting material, unlike a material such as soft stone or laminate, which may need to be replaced after a few short years. With granite being a hard surface material, it will hold up over the years and you don't have to worry about it breaking, cracking, or other types of damage as you would with these other types of materials.

If you are looking to remodel and are looking at countertop materials, consider having granite installed. Talk to a granite installation company, such as Luther Falls Custom Kitchens, for more information.
