Granite countertops have become one of the most popular choices for homeowners doing a kitchen remodeling. So, what’s the big appeal, and should you choose granite for your new kitchen countertops?
Strength and Durability
The kitchen is a space that gets a lot of attention, so homeowners need a material that can stand the test of time and occasional spills. Granite fits the bill and comes in a range of colors and patterns that will delight any customer. The natural stone is sturdy and strong enough for chopping food while maintaining its luster and smoothness. Those with kids understand how much of a beating the countertop gets on a daily basis. Parents can rest assured knowing that granite can stand up to wear and tear from the kids, whether theyre doing homework or playing with their toys. The material also transitions well from day to night, and creates a stunning and timeless look when entertaining guests.
Attractive Price Points
The cost of granite countertop installation is getting lower by the day. It’s a favorite of designers and contractors, and homeowners have warmed up to granite as its price has dropped. Tiles tend to cost significantly less than slabs, but either way there is an option to suit every budget. Plus, customers can select the look that best matches their kitchen space, helping to pull the entire room together. Just be aware that you will also have to pay for the installation of the granite, not just the tiles or slabs themselves.
