Why are Granite Countertops so Popular
Granite countertops are popular among homeowners for their natural durability and classy appeal. Installing these counters can easily spruce up your kitchen and improve the resale value of your home.
The stone materials used in the construction of granite materials are carefully selected and inspected before being processed into their commercial form. They are resistant to scratches, dents, cracks and much more, which makes them an instant material of choice, especially in homes with young children, who may cause some destruction when the adults are not looking.
Nowadays, granite countertops can be selected in a wide range of attractive patterns, ranging from its natural earthen grains to a palette of eye-striking hues such as butterfly beige and Luna pearl.
A polished and smooth surface makes way for easy maintenance of your countertops. Simply use a towel moistened with water to wipe away the surface of your countertops to remove any spills and dirt without the need for expensive (and possibly toxic) cleaning liquids.
And if your countertop does get eroded or damaged in time, fret not as the reparation process is hassle-free and takes up little time. Inform your granite installation experts and they will prepare a putty to mend the damage, restoring the countertop for use without delay, unlike some materials such as wood, which require a lengthy repair and replacement period – and thereby halting kitchen activities.
Granite is also naturally resistant to bacteria and other microorganisms that might cause disease and infection, especially when exposed to foodstuff in the kitchen. With granite countertops, you can cook to your heart’s content without worrying about contamination.
Additionally, the surface of granite is non-porous, which prevents moisture from entering the material and degrading it from within. This means that your countertop may hold kettles, bottles of water, flower vases and even be placed next to a sink, without fear of moisture damage.
So, if you wish to improve the interior of your home kitchen while being practical and seeking out something value-for-money, look no further than granite countertops!
