Benefits Of Granite Kitchen Countertops

The kitchen is often known as the heart of the home and a kitchen remodel is no easy project. Designing a new look and choosing the right materials can be daunting, especially when updating your countertops. When making a decision for your countertop, there are a number of things to consider. When it comes to picking out your new kitchen countertops, there are many options available. Although many of these materials are popular– granite has remained at the top of the list for contractors over the years. Not only is it beautiful and durable, but also fairly inexpensive. Here are three benefits of granite countertops:

Durability

Granite’s durability is unmatched by any other popular countertop option. In its creation, the stones and crystals form together in such a way that makes it extremely difficult to scratch or break through. It is heat- and stain-resistant, so you can easily set hot pans on the counter to cool.

Maintenance-Free

Since granite is strong and sturdy, which means that it requires little to no maintenance during its lifetime. Because of its non-porous nature, clean-up is a cinch. It will also not harbor bacteria, mold or mildew. Keeping the bacteria away.

Boost Resale Value

Appraisal value rises after a kitchen upgrade. If you have any thoughts of moving down the line, countertops matter. Not every home improvement fetches a dollar-for-dollar return. But as a general rule, updating a kitchen will make your home more attractive to buyers (and laminated countertops are not appraised as highly as granite). Consider this a bonus to an already sound decision.

No matter the reason for the kitchen renovation, granite is the way to go. When picking countertops, choose the material that will stand the test of time. Granite will turn your kitchen into a beautiful state-of-the-art space for your family to enjoy for years to come.
