If you’re remodeling your kitchen, you want the finished product to feel modern, functional, and personal. The atmosphere of the kitchen should reflect your unique personality and should be tailored for your comfort. A great way to do this is to install granite countertops. There are three main reasons why granite countertops work so well in an updated kitchen and why so many homeowners gravitate towards it during the remodeling process. Read on to see if granite is the right countertop choice for your kitchen.
Granite Countertops Are Durable
Granite has the advantage of being harder than marble and more natural than quartz. This is why granite countertops are such a popular choice for upscale kitchens. Granite is mined straight from the earth, so it is a natural choice that’s great for rustic, country-style kitchens. Granite begins its life deep in the earth as magma. The magma cools and forms the igneous rock granite, which is tough and hardened. Granite can withstand abuse from heat, children, dropped cookware, direct contact with knives, you name it!
Granite Countertops Are Unique
One of the great things about granite is that it is naturally unique. No two slabs of granite are exactly alike. Granite slabs vary in color, lightness or darkness, and veining. This means that your new countertops will have a unique pattern that is unparalleled by any other countertop in the world! You have the choice to create an especially unique and personalized kitchen.
Granite Countertops Are Affordable
Granite countertops used to cost thousands of dollars for a single kitchen remodel. Today, because of changes in technology and shipment, granite costs a fraction of what it used to. Also, considering the cost of the granite, shipment, and installation, high-end granite tends to be much less costly than high-end marble.
