Why Install Granite Countertops in your Kitchen?

Are you looking to update your kitchen? You can’t go wrong with granite countertops. Each piece of granite has unique pitting, swirls, specks, and patterns, making your kitchen one of a kind. There’s a reason why granite has been around for years, it has even been used in ancient Egypt—it’s just that good. Here are some benefits of installing granite countertops in your kitchen:

  • Excellent value – It’s true that granite countertops can be pricey but they are worth the investment. They can even increase the value of your home. If you are trying to sell your property, you can make your gorgeous granite countertop a huge selling point. Granite countertops do not depreciate in value.
  • Highly sanitary – Granite can resist bacterial contamination. You can easily prepare you meals on your countertop and not have to worry about food safety issues.
  • Very easy to clean – Mild soap and water is all it takes to clean a granite countertop. Do you want to remove stains caused by acidic substances? A paste made out of bleach and flour should do the trick. You may also seal your countertop to prevent staining.
  • Resists heat – Since granite is created with pressure and heat, hot pans and plates will be no match for your countertop. You don’t even need to use a tempered glass or silicone to protect granite.
  • Extremely hard – You can actually cut ingredients without a cutting board when you have a granite countertop. Be careful, though, as granite can dull knives. The only other substances that are harder than or just as hard as granite are diamonds and quartz. It will be hard to scratch granite countertops.
  • Flexible – Granite can take on just about any shape so you can get creative with your kitchen. You don’t have to stick with boring square or rectangular countertops.
  • Ideal for outdoor kitchens – Suppliers can guide you on the right thickness to use for your outdoor kitchen. This will ensure that your countertop can resist elements, like the rain.
  • Perfect cooking area – Granite countertops are flat and cool to the touch so you can prepare candies and dough on it. For those who don’t want cold countertops, there’s an option to add heat to granite. It’s pretty much the same technology used for in-floor heating.
  • Easy repairs – If you notice a chip or crack on your countertop, don’t worry. Professional repair services can get your granite countertop looking as good as new. There’s no need to replace the entire countertop if the damage is small.
