Thursday, December 24, 2015

Granite countertops will add a luxurious feeling to any kitchen and with the right appliances and décor, you can elevate your kitchen into an elegant space.

We all know how important counters are in the kitchen and when you have the right counters, they help inspire you to cook the most amazing meals.

If you are looking to replace your counters, consider granite countertops. Below, we will go over some of the benefits of choosing granite and we know once you see the benefits, you will be looking into granite right away.

 1. Durability

Everyone wants to know that their countertops are not going to wear down after only a couple of years. Granite countertops are durable and will last a lifetime in your home. The granite itself is solid and provides you with exceptional durability, even when items are dropped.

You never have to worry about scratching, peeling of the corners, or cracks in the surface. Granite countertops are ideal for homeowners who cook a lot in their kitchen or homeowners who have children who like to experiment in the kitchen.

2. Heat Resistant

Another benefit of choosing granite for your countertop surface is that it is heat resistant. This means if you set a hot plate or pan on top of the counter, you do not have to worry about discoloration or deterioration of the surface.

3. Bacteria Free

As long as you keep your countertops clean, they will remain bacteria free. Granite is not a porous surface, so you do not have to worry about chicken juice or other juices seeping into the surface.

If you do spill something on your countertop such as tomato sauce, you are able to wipe it off quickly without any staining or problems.

4. Looks Natural

If you have ever walked into a kitchen with low quality countertops, you can definitely tell the difference. Granite countertops look natural and they provide you with a beautiful, luxurious feel to your kitchen.

In addition to looking natural, the countertops come in a variety of colors and patterns so you can match all of your kitchen décor and appliances.
