Benefits of Installing Granite
Granite is the most durable natural stone material used for countertops, making it a great option for any kitchen! The smooth surface offers a permanent appearance, as the coloration won’t fade with age.
When you decide to install granite kitchen countertops, the finished appearance will be completely unique to any other surface. No two pieces of granite are exactly the same, and homeowners can hand pick their stone for a slab that matches the kitchen perfectly.
Don’t think granite is out of reach when you are working on a budget. Less expensive cuts are available, and you can cut costs drastically by working with granite tiles instead of large slabs. This can in turn lower the price of your installation services!
Again, durability is a highly desirable feature for homeowners that work in the kitchen often. Granite surfaces are highly resistant to heat and scratches. We always recommend using trivets and cutting boards, but your granite countertops will stand up to everyday wear.
Building Custom Countertops
Customizing your granite countertops is an easy way to develop a truly unique appearance. From color to cut, our design team has the experience and resources to create the exact look you desire.
Tailor your granite by selecting from a wide array of customization options:
- Pattern: Granite comes in three different patterns—solid, marbled and speckled—each offering a different effect. Small kitchens benefit from a solid pattern, making the room feel larger
- Color: Options for color are potentially endless, with counters in every imaginable hue including red, blue, green, white and brown
- Cut: Choose from working with large slabs for a seamless appearance or granite tiles for a patterned, cost effective approach
- Finish: Select a honed finish for a matte appearance or glossy for countertops that reflect and shine
- Edging: Customize the edges of countertops with bullnose, beveled, cleft stone or ogee effects for optimal detailing
Create a picture perfect kitchen with the addition of a matching countertop backsplash. Our design team can help you decide which options will accent your kitchen best! Click here for more ways to customize your kitchen granite countertops.
Maintaining Your Granite Countertops
Granite is already a fairly durable material. With regular care and maintenance, you can extend the life and pristine appearance of your countertops for years!
As a natural stone, Granite is porous and susceptible to staining. Prevent any stains and damage to your counters by having them professionally sealed. This will protect the surface from food and drink residue, leaving you with a flawless exterior!
While heat and scratch resistant, we always recommend the use of a cutting board with any countertop surface. Granite can be costly to repair when care is neglected. Hard stone can also damage your knives when cutting directly on the counters. Take caution by using a cutting board during your everyday cooking.
