If you have ever watched an episode of House Hunters, you know that the one thing every prospective homeowner puts on their list of must-haves is granite countertops. Granite countertops are right up there with location, location, location in terms of finding the ideal house, and if your existing kitchen does not have them, then it is time to make a change. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of granite countertops!
Granite is so sought-after as a kitchen countertop material because of its many advantages over other types, including…
…how tough it is. Granite is an extremely durable material, and so it can put up with all of the wear and tear it will no doubt encounter in the kitchen. Whether it’s a sharp knife of a searing hot pan, granite will stay looking good throughout most kitchen mishaps.
…how low-maintenance it is. With its smooth, stain-resistant surface, granite countertops are exceptionally easy to keep clean. A little disinfectant and a cloth and you’re good to go!
…how clean it keeps your kitchen. A non-porous stone like granite will not trap germs and dirt, meaning you will have less bacteria to contend with in your kitchen. This means reduced risk of food contamination!
…how beautiful it looks. Granite has that natural look that so many homeowners seek to duplicate in sub-par types of materials. They can never quite replicate it though; real granite is easily identified by its quality.
…how much value it adds. If you are looking for a way to add resale value to your home, granite countertops are the way to go. They can add a significant amount of home value to your property, making them a worthwhile interior investment!
