Granite is one of the most popular countertop materials available, and for good reason: its natural beauty, versatility, and durability are unparalleled. The benefits of granite extend beyond the kitchen; it is also an excellent choice for custom-made furniture, including dining tables, benches, fire pits, and more! If you think granite is the right surface material for your next project, contact Stonesmiths Inc. We will answer all of your questions and help you find the perfect piece of granite to make your vision a reality.
The Benefits of Granite
In terms of kitchen countertops, granite is hard to beat for several reasons:
Natural stone can make the most ordinary of rooms look extraordinary. Granite, in particular, provides a sense of distinction and natural beauty because of its unique appearance. Every slab has a completely unique pattern and color. When you select a slab of granite, you are investing in a countertop that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
2. Increases the Value of the Home
In addition to its beauty, granite is also incredibly valuable. When you install granite countertops or other granite features in your home, you are virtually guaranteed a return on your investment. Plus, the value of your investment won’t diminish over time. The durability and timeless appeal of granite ensures that it will hold its value for many years to come.
Another benefit of granite is its durability. As a natural stone product, granite is made to last. While it is possible to chip or crack granite if enough force is applied, the surface is almost impervious to scratches. Additionally, if properly sealed, granite should not stain or fade, even if exposed to direct sunlight.
4. Heat Resistance
You know the saying, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!” Many countertop materials simply can’t take the heat. Granite, on the other hand, is incredibly heat-resistant, making it an ideal choice for kitchen countertops and fire pits.
