Choosing New Countertops: The Many Benefits of Granite

Posted by & filed under Granite Countertops.

When you are remodeling your home, you are probably giving a lot of thought to the countertops you want installed. Countertops are one of the most important features in your kitchen, so you want to be sure you choose the best countertops for your St Paul home. One of our favorite materials for counters is granite, and here are a few reasons we love this natural stone so much.

When it comes to countertops, granite is one of the most durable and long-lasting materials on the market today. Granite does not depreciate in value, and they can add value to your home, which is a huge advantage if you are thinking of selling it any time in the near future.

Granite is also unique. Did you know that no two slabs are exactly alike? So that means your countertops will not look like anyone else’s. Yours will always be unique to your home and your own personal style and tastes. It comes in a huge variety of colors and patterns too, so you never have to worry that you won’t find the exact shade or pattern that you want. Granite countertops are an aesthetically pleasing addition to your home. They are a great way to add a sense of luxury and elegance to your home without breaking the bank.

These types of countertops are also great for families of all sizes. Because they are so durable, they are burn, heat, stain and bacteria resistant. Cleaning and maintaining them is a cinch! You just have to wipe them down with a mild, non-abrasive soap and a warm wet cloth. Certain types of granite countertops do not even need to be resealed!

The fact that they are bacteria resistant is a huge bonus to those who do a lot of cooking at home. So you can prepare raw meat for cooking and not have to worry about the bacteria remaining on your countertops. You could even cut the meat on your granite if you want to, but we do not recommend this. You could dull your knife blade!

As you can see, these countertops are a great option for those who are looking for beautiful and unique countertops.
