It’s no wonder that many choose to use granite when upgrading their countertops whether it be in the kitchen or the bathroom. Whether you choose slab or tile, it adds a vivid, luxurious natural beauty to any room and no two granite slabs are the same. Beyond the beauty of granite countertops, they provide incredible durability with hardness nearing that of a diamond. What that means is heat resistance without the scratches and stains. Maintenance is relatively easy with a bit of mild soap and warm water with a reapplication of sealant about once a year.
Many people immediately assume that granite is out of their price range and only affordable in high end homes. Well, that’s beginning to change. As granite becomes more popular, the price has been coming down. It’s also important to recognize that granite countertops add value to your home should you decide to sell.
