Aubree Gullickson. Granite Countertop. September 18th , 2017.
Black and metallic colors go together like steak and potatoes, so it is no wonder why stainless steel appliances/fixtures and black countertops pop together. The sleekness and shine of all components will stand out against a black background without the granite getting lost in the scene. If anything, a steel stove and faucet will make the black surfaces look even more brilliant and sophisticated.
The granite countertops are known for adding beauty to the kitchen. It is also popular for its durability and preferable qualities. The granite stone offers very unique surfaces along with beauty that is found only in nature. The granite countertops are also easy to maintain and hence have better longevity. The granite countertops lasts for a long time even in areas of high traffic and requires very little effort to maintain, hence making it ideal for any type of kitchen.
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.
Granite is one of the hardest natural stones, and this hardness of the stone translates to its durability. As a normal kitchen you would have loads of different sizes and weights of utensils being placed on the countertops, it is worth to invest your precious money on a material prominent for its sturdiness. In addition to this, granite manages to considerably withstand blisters and scratches that we normally find in any kitchen. And even when hot pans or pots are placed, granite has capability to oppose the damage (both physical and aesthetical destruction) to a large extent.
