GRANITE IS EXTREMELY DURABLE
Granite is a great material for heavy-use counter tops. You can cut vegetables directly on the granite without having to worry about scratching or damaging the counter. Granite is resistant to wear and tear and is one of the best stones to use for a worry free kitchen surface.
GRANITE HAS MANY DIFFERENT FACES
Granite is made up of many different types of crystals. The natural color of the stone will vary quite a bit giving each counter a uniqueness in rich & vibrant color. The most common colors include white, gray, black, pink, and orange. Since Granite is made up of crystals, your counter may have an interesting iridescent effect when viewed at different angles.
Horneblend & Biotite, Feldspar, Mica & Quartz are some of the beautiful crystals that make up natural granite.
GRANITE IS GREAT FOR YOUR BUDGET
Some of the most common granite is actually quite affordable due to the abundance of the material. The popular grey and black granite that comes to mind is made from hornblende and biotite crystals.
Granite is available in many different colors and can complement and style kitchen.
Granite can often mimic the look of more expensive stones such as marble & quartzite. Having a different finish on the granite can also change the appearance and give it the characteristics of various natural stones.
With so many choices at homeowners' fingertips, picking out a kitchen counter is no easy task. Since this surface area ends up influencing many kitchen palettes, it's important to choose something that looks good to you, will hold up under the kitchen activity of your household and has a price tag that suits your budget.
Marble Kitchen Counters
Marble has an unrivaled, classic look that always seems to be in style. For lovers of white kitchens in particular, marble offers more variety than almost any other material. Marble is known more for the patina it develops with use than for its durability. It's a softer stone than granite, and can scratch and stain easily.
Engineered Quartz Kitchen Counters
Perfect for the customized home, engineered quartz comes in just about every shade imaginable. This engineered product combines ground quartz, resin and pigments for a tough, nonporous material. Great ecofriendly attributes makes it a safe bet for green homes, too.
Granite Kitchen Counters
There are plenty of reasons granite is so popular — this natural stone has plenty of character, with unique grains, colors and customizable finishes. When properly sealed, it's one of the most durable options out there.
Soapstone Kitchen Counters
