3 Wonderful Benefits Of Getting Granite Countertops

by Scarlett Ross

When you are in the process of choosing countertops for your kitchen, it is super hard to go wrong when you choose granite. Not only does granite come in several different color combinations, but it is also built to last and last. This article will discuss 3 wonderful benefits of getting granite countertops:

You Don't Have To Worry About Damaging Them 

Having a beautiful stone for your countertop is great. However, worrying about damaging it whenever you use it is not. Thankfully, when it comes to your granite countertops, you don't need to worry about damaging them at all. The granite is made to be incredibly strong, and can withstand cuts from knives, hot pots, pans, stabs from forks, dropping plates or bowls on it, etc. These things are likely going to cause more damage to the object that comes in contact with them, than the granite itself. This allows you to use your granite countertops freely and not worry about whether or not you are damaging them. 

Color Combinations Can Match Any Home 

Since granite comes in so many different color combinations, you will have no problem finding a combination that best matches your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, patio, or where ever it is that you are installing the granite countertops. Each piece of granite is completely unique, but you can find several that have similar color combinations. This makes it much easier for you to find slabs that go well with your cabinet color, flooring, wall color, backsplash, etc. For example, if you are doing white cabinets, light wood flooring and have white walls, then a granite with flecks of black, gray, and white would likely great a great contrasting feature and would complement the other colors in the room. 

It Is Reasonably Priced 

If you are in the market for a material that creates gorgeous counter tops but isn't going to break the bank, then granite is an excellent option. Granite will cost you around $50- $60 per square foot for a slab. This is cheaper than a quartz, Silestone, or soapstone slab, as well as several other kinds of slabs. Granite is also going to be a lot stronger and long lasting them some of these other, more expensive stones, making the decision to save money and purchase granite an even better one. Just make sure that you do your research and shop around before you purchase your granite to ensure that you get the best quality granite for the best price. 


About Me

Gardening For Aesthetics

If you aren't interested in growing your own fruits and veggies, gardening becomes more about aesthetics than it does about functionality. I started thinking carefully about what I could do in order to make my yard more beautiful a few years ago, so I began tearing out the weeds and focusing on creating a more welcoming space. I added a few trees and shrubs, renovated my flower beds, and started focusing on finding ground covers that would look great. This blog is all about gardening to improve the aesthetics of your yard.
