Why Granite Countertops Are The Best Choice For Your Kitchen

The kitchen. It’s the heart of the home, where the best snacks are and a great gathering space for loved ones. A kitchen remodel is no easy task, choosing the style and designs can be overwhelming with all the options to choose from. However, to make things easier, when choosing countertops there’s only one choice to consider. Granite. Although many countertop materials are popular– granite has remained at the top of the list for contractors over the years. Not only is it beautiful and durable, but also fairly inexpensive. Here are three benefits of granite countertops:

Durable and Low Maintenance

The durability of granite is unmatched by their counterparts; this means that it requires little to no maintenance during its lifetime. When granite is created, the stones and crystals form together in a way that makes it extremely difficult to scratch, break or chip. Granite can also take the heat. Dishware straight from the oven and stove are less likely to wear and tear your countertops–though still need to be careful! If cared for correctly, the toughness of granite makes it hard to chip, crack or break to daily kitchen uses. Surfaces such as soapstone, marble, concrete, and limestone have a tough time tolerating the daily kitchen use and can break down easily. This is why granite is the top choice for kitchen countertops.

Easy to Clean

Because of its non-porous nature, clean-up is a breeze. Basic, daily cleaning is very important to keep granite countertops in pristine condition. Daily cleaning helps to get rid of any unpleasant dirt, grime, and food particles that may have settled on the countertops during the day’s activities. For basic cleaning, you can use a dry or wet soft cloth to dust off or clean the surface. When there are spills, you can use some dishwashing soap to clean the surface and then dry it with a soft cloth. Be sure to soak up any spills fast as they could stain the surface.

Resale Value

Appraisal value rises after a kitchen upgrade. If you have any thoughts of moving down the line, countertops matter. Keeping your home updated for potential buyers down the road will only benefit the resale value in the future. Don’t plan to sell? Granite is a great long-term investment for your family home. The durability of granite means that the beauty will remain for years to come.

No matter the reason for the kitchen renovation, granite is the way to go. Granite will turn your kitchen into a beautiful room for your loved ones to enjoy for many years. For more information on granite countertops, contact the team at WSG Kitchen & Bath today!
