Why Choose Granite Countertops?

Granite is one of the most popular natural stone choices for kitchen designs today and it has been valued throughout time for its beauty and durability.

Besides being durable, this natural stone is one of the most elegant materials that can be used for countertops in kitchens, bathrooms and other spaces.

In this blog, we will discuss a few reasons why choosing granite countertops for your home is the obvious choice.

Made of natural stone

With natural stone you’re able to bring the outdoors inside naturally. While other countertops are processed, it’s delivered to your kitchen or other space straight from the earth itself. No other materials or chemicals are added to the slab. It’s nature’s gift for you and your home.

Granite provides many design options

Granite gives you many design options since it is made up of many different types of crystals. The color of granite varies quite a bit depending on the crystal that makes up the majority of a given piece of stone. White, gray, black, pink and orange are the most common colors. Occasionally greens, browns and blues make an appearance as well.

It’s extremely durable

Granite is one of the most durable countertops you can purchase. Not only is it beautiful to look at but it acts as a functional surface that you can count on for years to come. The stone so many have come to appreciate is an igneous rock with a holocrystalline structure. That means that the crystals that make up the stone don’t fully develop, instead, they grow into each other. This unique interlocking crystal structure makes granite extremely durable.
