Gorgeous Granite Countertops for Your Home

Granite Countertops
Quality kitchen and bath an install granite countertops in your home and bring additional beauty to your kitchen.  Granite countertops come in a variety of colors and patterns.  They are a high-end addition to your kitchen that will brighten up the entire space.

Granite is a naturally occurring stone that has been formed out of magma. It is mined in locations throughout the world and since it is naturally formed each pattern is unique and different.

Granite is Extremely Durable
One of the many reasons homeowners have granite countertops installed is its extreme durability.  It can stand up to heat, won’t stain easily, won’t crack either.  This is a huge benefit for the chef because you can take a pot directly off of the stove and place it on the counter without needing a pot holder to set it on.  It also makes clean up much easier than if you have laminate countertops that soak in stains and are difficult to keep looking fresh.

Unique Patterns
Granite is an ideal solution for homeowners that want a fresh and unique space.  Since granite is a natural product it isn’t made in the lab, therefore, each slab of granite is unique and different from the next.  Even if you and your best friend selected a similar shade of granite countertops they would still look unique and different from each other.

They Sparkle
Granite countertops sparkle and shine when the sunlight hits them.  The crystals inside the stone will dance in the sun, creating a stunning centerpiece for your kitchen.  Have a sunlight installed over your granite island and enhance their natural beauty year round. 

Granite is Affordable
Granite can cost less than other stones like marble.  If you don’t have the budget for solid granite countertops, you can also consider having granite tile installed.  This is a budget friendly way to get the look of granite without the cost of having single piece slabs installed.  It won’t look as elegant but is a good compromise.

Very Sanitary
If you are concerned about germs, granite is an excellent choice.  Some materials will soak in bacteria, making it extremely difficult to clean them.  Granite won’t absorb the bacteria and, by leaving it on the surface, you can easily remove dirt, grime, and germs with a standard kitchen cleaning solution.

Accents your Design
Since granite is a multicolor surface, it will enhance and accent your overall home design.  Unlike a solid color kitchen counter, granite will look good when you change the paint color, refinish the kitchen cabinets, or stain the hardwoods.  It’s dynamic appearance makes granite countertops a compliment to all styles of homes.
