Thinking of Replacing Your Kitchen Countertops? Here’s Why You Should Use Granite.

It can be hard to decide what material you want to use for your kitchen counters.  We’re here to make that decision easy for you: use granite!  There are so many benefits to choosing granite for your kitchen countertops.  Let’s discuss them, shall we?

Granite is durable.  It will last for a very long time (keep that in mind when choosing your color/pattern).  It can withstand high heat, which is great in your kitchen because it means you can place a hot pot or pan directly on the granite countertop without leaving a mark.  It also is scratch resistant, so you can chop vegetables directly on the surface.  Just don’t do anything too crazy; i.e. try not to slam a meat cleaver (or something similar) down on your counter.  As long as you don’t play with fate, your granite kitchen countertops should maintain their pristine appearance for a very long time.

For your kitchen countertops, granite is very functional. Candy or dough can be rolled out easily because of the cool surface.  As mentioned above, the durability of granite gives it the functionality of a cutting board or hot pad. Your granite countertops are also extremely hard for children to damage, which makes them kid-friendly.

Granite is classic.  It is a natural stone that has a distinct beauty.  Every piece of granite is unique, so you can be sure that your granite kitchen countertops will have no parallel.  Installing granite will actually raise the value of your home and bring an aura of sophistication.
