GRANITE COUNTER TOPS
Granite counter tops
Granite countertops are an outstanding addition to any kitchen. Some people have even remarked they're too nervous to eat off of them because they are such a fine piece of art. That's a myth, though because granite countertops are quite functional – they're one of the sturdiest and most durable materials used in kitchen surfaces. If the budget allows it, granite countertops should get the final rose in your bachelor-like search for the perfect kitchen accessory because of these reasons:
Granite is a natural stone that has a look even the Flintstones would be envious of. There's something very becoming about a kitchen with a granite countertop as it almost makes the guests ignore the fact that your chicken scampi could have cooked about a half hour longer.
Matches Almost Any Decor.
Perhaps the best thing about granite is that it will match your kitchen décor no matter how exotic your stylings are. This is especially important because granite doesn't crack and wears minimally so it will be a part of your kitchen through a few remodels most likely.
Can Be The Centerpiece of the Room.
While granite countertops are decidedly more expensive than their vinyl counterparts, the immaculate looks of the piece take away attention from other parts of the kitchen. What this means is that the turquoise blue, energy-sucking refrigerator you've had since the 70's won't be such a distraction anymore.
Unlike that time you etched “ I ♥ Tom Forever” in the dashboard of your '69 Plymouth Roadrunner, a granite countertop won't scratch and keep remnants of your mistakes forever. This is especially important on a breakfast bar where bored kids and even the dullest knife don't often mix.
Heat Resistant Surface.
A bad thing about vinyl and similar countertops is that you can't really cook near them – kind of an important quality to have in a kitchen. The reason being is that hot pans can damage vinyl but since granite is forged with heat it better be resistant to it, and it is.
Cleaning Chemicals Won't Cause a Scare.
With some lesser durable countertops you almost have to worry about cleaning up the stuff you used to just clean the surface with. Once again the smear campaign against vinyl continues because acidic cleaning solutions can penetrate and damage the countertop – not a problem with the durable vinyl.
Constant Added Value To The Home.
A granite countertop is in many ways like your adult son that lives in the basement – it isn't going anywhere. The sturdy and durable material depreciates minimally so it will always be a key selling point so you can move into a studio apartment and away from your adult son.
Granite doesn't require any resurfacing and the smooth, flat, protected top is easy to clean and maintain.
Not a Bacterial Breeding Ground.
Tiles with grout sections and materials with rough surfaces can be breeding grounds for bacteria and illness as food and debris gets lodged in them. This isn't a problem with the smooth granite countertop.
