Homeowners are spending more time, energy and money on their kitchens nowadays than other remodeling projects. Among the first things to determine when you design your new kitchen is the type of countertop to install. There are lots of kinds to go with, entailing assortments of granite, marble and manufactured products. There are many reasons why the flourishing trend today is granite.
Looks-Beauty and Sophistication:
Granite is stunning and stylish. It is offered in a variety of dazzling colors and polishes, making it easy to fit to the balance of your kitchen design. The hinges and handles you choose for your cabinet doors and drawers can be matched to the natural grandeur of the granite to boost its polished sheen. The natural patterns in the granite breeds a wonderful foundation for the general design of your kitchen so everything flows and blends well.
Textures-Rich and Trendy:
The huge sections of granite removed from the ground are made into slabs. This technique allows less design variation and discoloration. Moreover, compared to tiles, there are less cuts or blemishes to decrease the probability of dust or gravel in fissures. Granite countertops offer a uniform, solid surface when they are cut and polished.
Strength and Long life:
Granite is a hard, long-lasting stone, harvested from deep in the ground. It is resistant to heat, severe temperature changes and it doesn’t scratch or fracture easily. When it is properly sealed, it is not as vulnerable as synthetic materials to staining or discoloration from chemicals, hot pans or spills. Granite does need some maintenance, but with hardly any work, it will sustain its beauty for a lifetime of use.
A Wise Investment:
Granite is a comparatively pricey material and will amplify the overall expense of upgrading your property, yet it is a wise investment, due to its aesthetic appeal and longevity. If you are planning to sell your home in the future, a prospective buyer will have even less room for negotiating your asking price down if they don’t need to go through the expense and hard work of renovating the kitchen.
Since granite is a natural stone material, it is very easy to take care of its good looks and sophistication. Because of its noted toughness and durability, there is no need to be concerned about it losing its appeal over the years. With minimal maintenance you will manage to preserve the look and polish of your granite countertop for many years ahead.
