Advantages of Granite Countertops

The first thing that comes to mind when you think about granite countertops is likely their beauty. Granite lends an air of luxury to any room, and will help elevate the design of your kitchen or bathroom to a new level. The second thing most people think of when considering granite countertops is likely the price–while it’s true that granite is something of an investment, granite countertops have a number of advantages over other materials that make them well worth the price.

Granite countertops are more durable than those of other materials. Granite is tougher than most common countertop options like Formica, and it stands up well to regular wear and tear.  Because granite is such a hard material, it resists scratches–cutting on it will damage your knives, but not your counters!

Another advantage granite has over other materials is that it resists heat. This makes it ideal for use near a cooktop or range. Granite countertops also save you a lot of worry about wear to set down hot pans, as unlike other materials, granite will not be damaged or weakened by exposure to heat. While this may not seem like a necessary improvement, you’ll be surprised by how much more convenient it makes your cooking experience.

You will never have to worry about stains to granite countertops. When properly sealed, granite won’t absorb any liquid or the stains they can cause.
