Thinking about installing granite countertops in your Kansas City home? Here are some reasons why granite might be the right choice for your next kitchen or bathroom renovation.
- Durability. Next to a diamond, it is the hardest surface in the world. Major points for resisting chipping or scratching! Also, because granite is an igneous rock, meaning it came from the cooled magma of a volcano, it is safe to say it also resists heat. So no need to worry if you set that baking tray or hot pot directly on your counter.
- Low Maintenance. Granite should be installed properly and sealed by professionals to get the best out of your counters. If properly installed and sealed, it will resist staining and bacteria growth. Cleaning is a breeze, just wipe with a wet cloth and mild soap or you can invest in a great granite cleaner for that extra shine.
- Value. Due to the long lasting benefit of granite as a durable and low maintenance natural stone, it actually adds value to your home to have granite countertops! Though the initial investment may seem pricey, granite’s qualities will outlast the more traditional countertops guaranteeing a full return on your investment in replacement or repair costs. Chances are if you are replacing granite in your home it won’t be because it is damaged, but more likely because it is not wanted.
- Style. Finally, no two pieces of granite are the same. All granite is a beautiful, natural stone that comes in a variety of hues and color combinations. Since it is composed of interlocking crystals every piece has a bit of a sparkle to it and makes any room feel a bit more high-end. Granite versatility and color options make it the natural stone choice that can fit any decor or lifestyle.
