Granite Countertop Design
Marbled shades, natural flecks, and variant colours – granite countertops are ideal for traditional homes with old world charm. With subtle speckled variations in tone throughout, granite countertops easily become the stylish focal point of a kitchen or bathroom. Granite countertops are incredibly versatile; they come in a wide variety of colours and patterns, giving homeowners unique control over their home’s look and feel. While darker shades work especially well when paired with a pop of colour or a bold pattern, lighter shades complement medium-coloured wood cabinets and natural lighting. The natural, elegant design of granite countertops lays the foundation for beautiful room design.
The Pros and Cons of Granite Countertops
Countertops can be a home’s ground zero for spills, fingerprints, clutter and mess. As much as we would love out countertops to remain organized and mess-free, life often gets in the way. It is vital for homeowners to understand the benefits and drawbacks of a particular stone.
Granite is a Natural Stone – Granite comes from the earth and are perfectly designed by nature. Colour variations, natural defects, fissures and erratic veins can ensure your stone piece is truly, one of a kind.
Durability – Granite is extremely durable. It is scratch resistant and doesn’t chip easily. Most chips can be repair by a specialized technician.
Heat Resistant – Granite is completely heat resistant which means you don’t have to be concerned with taking hot pots off the stove and placing them directly onto your countertop.
Granite is a Natural Stone – Granite comes from the earth and is not manufactured in any way. Colour variations, natural defects, fissures and erratic veins may be present in your stone piece and cannot be altered in any way.
Porous – Granite is porous and should be sealed ever 1-5 years depending on the type of granite you have. If sealed properly, granite is stain resistant.
Seams – Seams are inevitable and will be seen and felt. Although this is inevitable with all stone, seams are usually more apparent in granite than in quartz.
