Are you attracted by the stunning look of granite countertops, but aren’t sure if they are right for you? Very few décor accents have the potential to make as much of an impact as countertops. And aside from its stunning beauty, there are several very good reasons why granite has become such a favorite. If you are considering them for your home, here is what you should know.
Durability & Low Maintenance
Are you afraid that these elegant countertops might be easily damaged in the kitchen? Don’t worry about that. Granite is strong: So strong that it was used to build pyramids in Egypt. These countertops are amazingly scratch and heat resistant, making them a perfect choice for your kitchen.
Are you worried about having to deal with a complicated cleaning and maintenance process to keep them looking beautiful? The opposite is true. Just wipe these countertops down with regular soap and water to watch them shine. In fact, you will not want to use regular cleaning products on granite, because they can strip the seal, exposing the porous surface. Acidic products are the worst, but there’s no need to worry about which products can be harmful, since all you need to do is use the soap that’s already on hand.
There is such a wide variety of color options available that it is easy for everyone to find something to suit their tastes. Though many people first think of the black, brown, white, gray and silver shades commonly used; there are many more colors from which to choose. Yellow, orange, blue, pink and violet can be used to great effect.
There are different patterns as well, with some looking more like marble while others have more resemblance to sand. Variations in color, specks, swirls and vein patterns provide endless choices and combinations.
