Why Are Granite Countertops Better
Are granite kitchen countertops the best material
to use? When putting together a kitchen
remodeling project one of the most important
decisions you will have to make is what material
to use for your countertops.
There are plenty of cost-saving solutions out
there that might sound appealing at first, but
none of which  represent a viable long-term
solution.

Why Are Granite Countertops Better
No, if youre remodeling your kitchen you need to
spend a little bit more money so you can install
a high quality set of countertops made from a
material that will not only provide you with all
sorts of immediately obvious practical benefits,
but which will also provide you with a viable
investment- a countertop that will remain
functional and wont need to be replaced for
many, many years into the future, and which will
retain its value so effectively that simply
installing it increases the resale value of your
home. In short, you need to step up to granite
kitchen countertops.

Why Are Granite Countertops Better
Why granite kitchen countertops? The first reason
why these countertops are so popular is the fact
they are incredibly attractive. Granite kitchen
countertops just look phenomenal, giving off a
high-class appearance to your kitchen as well as
providing your cooking space with a
professional-quality appearance of sturdiness and
usefulness.
Much ink has been spilled attempting to explain
the appeal of the appearance given off by granite
countertops, but no single word explains the
timeless look of this stone as effectively as the
word elegant. For many people there is no more
attractive material to create their countertops
from than granite.

Why Are Granite Countertops Better
A big part of the visual appeal of granite
kitchen countertops is the fact each countertop
will look unique from every other granite
countertop out there.
This is due to the fact granite is an all-natural
material. Granite countertops are cut from
single slabs of the stone, and each of those
slabs is as unique as the environment it is
pulled from.

Most other countertop materials are synthetic,
created in a lab or a workshop, and as such they
all look exactly the same. If you want a truly
unique fixture within your kitchen you will
purchase granite kitchen countertops. No matter
how popular this material gets, your countertops
will never look like anyone elses.

Because the details of the appearance of granite
varies from slab to slab, countertop to
countertop, you will have a lot of variety to
choose from when you pick out your granite
kitchen countertops.
Not only will you get to choose the granite
countertop that features the exact patterning
that you find most attractive, you will also be
able to choose the granite kitchen countertops
that are constructed from the exact color stone
you find most appealing.

In addition to color and patterning, granite
countertops vary in terms of the grain of the
stone and the design of the countertop itself-
how it was cut, how it was shaped, and how it was
modified, including whether you want a natural
rough-hewn slab or a finely polished surface. If
youre looking for a more rustic appearance, go
for unpolished granite. If youre looking for a
higher-class look, go for polished granite.

There are few countertop materials as versatile
as granite and there are also few countertop
materials as practical as granite.
Compared with just about every other countertop
material out there granite is incredibly low
maintenance and highly, highly durable.

Granite kitchen countertops can stand up to years
and years of the sort of regular kitchen abuse
that goes hand-in-hand with the best cooking. In
addition to resisting stains, water, oils, metal
and heat, granite is also resistant to some of
the harsher chemicals involved in cooking.
Overall, youre going to have a hard time
finding a more practical material to cook on than
your granite kitchen countertops.

Finally, granite kitchen countertops are
extremely hygienic and thats because this stone
is naturally antibacterial. Cooking with a lot
of different materials, nearly all of which will
be raw and unprocessed, means your kitchen could
potentially act as a home for a wide variety of
harmful pathogens. If these pathogens breed and
get into your food then they can cause all sorts
of health problems for you and your loved ones.

Thankfully this isnt a problem with granite
kitchen countertops. You will still need to
clean them and if you are worried about bacteria
you will still need to keep raw chicken and other
dangerous foods from sitting around for too long,
but overall you wont need to worry about
bacteria breeding within your granite kitchen
countertops the same way you would need to worry
about bacteria breeding in, for example, wooden
countertops.

Why Are Granite Countertops Better
Are granite kitchen countertops perfect? Of
course not. Granite is a very heavy stone, it
costs more money than lower-quality countertop
materials, and you will need to apply a new coat
of sealant to the material on a regular basis.
However,  overall, the many benefits of granite
kitchen countertops vastly outweigh the few small
considerations.
