The all time favorite countertop material for kitchen countertop remodels is granite. Granite countertops last for years and need very little maintenance. What was once considered a luxury material, has now become common in many kitchens. Due to changes in technology and supply of granite from the source, granite countertops have become much more affordable.
Granite has a natural beauty that is hard to match from manufactured materials. Warm rich earth tones are a popular choice today for kitchens that span from traditional to modern. Granite fits this trend well with a variety of colors and patterns to choose from.
Granite is also one of the hardest and most durable countertop materials available. Granite offers superior resistance to scratching and chipping. This natural stone tolerates heat extremely well and if the proper sealing is added granite will never shift in color. Taking care of your new granite countertops is quite simple, just keep them clean! This simple process will ensure that your countertops will last decades looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.
