What makes granite countertops so special?
Among natural stones, granite is the most popular for building kitchen and bathroom countertops. This reputation is largely due to the many advantages of granite, but also to the numerous hues, colors, shades and granularity available on the market.
Indeed, the physical qualities of granite make it an excellent choice for making different work surfaces. It is one of the strongest materials available. It is resistant to high temperatures, scratches and many impacts. However, to avoid dulling your knives or prematurely wearing out an area of your countertop, we still recommend using a cutting board. In addition, a major impact could crack or chip the countertop, especially if the impact occurs near the edge. However, the characteristics of granite allow it to survive the daily life of a family.
Moreover, granite comes in a wide range of colors, designs and textures. You can choose from several light or dark shades, from red to blue, beige and black. Next, you will need to decide on the finish for your work surface. The most popular is certainly the polished finish which gives a glossy look. There is also the honed polish, also called the matte finish, which is very similar to the polished finish, but without the shine. Otherwise, some companies also offer satin finishes. However, the process used to obtain the antique finish makes its surface more susceptible to staining if there is a grease spill.
Finally, granite also comes with its share of surprises for those who buy it. Don't worry, they are usually good. In fact, it's just hard to visualize the entire countertop from a small sample. Each slab of granite is unique and the veining, which creates the patterns, changes. Thus, each countertop will have a particular look that will set it apart from the others, even if you choose your neighbor's model.
