Granite is one of the hardest natural stones, and hardness translates to durability. As a normal kitchen would have loads of various sizes and weights being placed (dropped and thrown in worse cases) on countertops, it is worth to invest on a material known for its hardness. In addition, granite manages to considerably resist blisters and scratches. And even when hot pans or pots are placed, granite resists the damage (both physical and aesthetical damage) to a large extent.
Customarily, Formica or laminate countertops were your only alternative for countertop material. Now a days you have many more alternatives for countertop material, both natural and manmade. Natural materials, for an instance granite, quartz, and hardwoods are very prominent, and add a touch of charm to your kitchen.
The best part is that the granite kitchen countertops are affordable and do not hurt the pocket. Also there are plenty of shades and colors available in the market to be chosen from. Hence, finding a granite countertop that matches the existing decor of the kitchen will not be a tough task. The internet provides plenty of idea on the type of granite kitchen countertops to buy for the house.
The stone has been a favorite among the upper class, used for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities and exquisite flooring and for many other important purposes. Its large solid slabs for kitchen countertops and Kitchen Island is very heavy and requires heavy machinery to cut to the desired specification. Therefore this stone is not at all cheap and will cost you much more than other types of stone. Granite tiles are small pieces and sections of the stone. They are a fraction of the cost of solid slabs of granite. They are often derived from smaller remnants and leftover pieces of its slabs. As they are much smaller in size therefore it becomes easy to transport them and they can be easily adapted to any kitchen countertop or bathroom vanity. Anyone with the ability to work with ceramic tile can construct with granite tile. The advantage of using tiles instead of slabs is that the money you saved on tiles can be invested on other renovations like updating the flooring with natural stone or remodeling your bathroom with granite tile.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock with the qualities almost similar to the marble. Generally they are available in neutrals and white, they have smooth appearance, unlike granite which is a hard stone. They are formed from sand and shells and frequently found to have small fossils and shells; some homeowners particularly value this unique aspect of limestone countertops.
Black is a clean and sleek color, so you should be mindful of how you accessorize a kitchen with granite kitchen countertops in Marietta.

You can add brightly colored objects, metallic features, feminine details to contrast with black’s masculine character, or whatever else suits your personal style. With black granite, the results will always be elegant, comfortable, and inviting.
