Granite countertops provide a large array of benefits, including an exceptional, unique appearance. Understanding the many benefits that granite can provide will help to ensure that you make the best decision for your property. Here are a few of the benefits of implementing granite countertops to your home.
Completely Unique Appearance
Granite provides a particularly unique look and pattern. They way in which granite is obtained ensures that each slab is different and can’t be replicated. Granite tends to provide a natural appearance for each room, which can be implemented in order to match the existing fixtures. Many people think that granite is the most beautiful option for countertops. It provides a timeless, classic appearance for any kitchen or bathroom. Granite has an array of possible finishes, which ensures the best appearance.
Resistant to Damage
Granite countertops are made of incredibly hard material, which allows it to be resistant to scratches. However, it is important to take the steps to ensure that your granite countertop is sealed properly. Granite is a somewhat porous surface. Marble is more porous, while quartz is a non-porous surface. Granite sits somewhere in the middle of these two materials. This means that it stains less frequently than marble, but is not quite resistant to stains. Having granite countertops appropriately sealed can go a long way toward protecting the surface and preventing stains. Granite is also a material that is resistant to heat, which prevents it from becoming damaged when hot pans or hair tools are set on its surface.
