May is National Home Remodeling Month, sponsored every year by the National Home Builders Association. And to help celebrate, we thought we would take the time to talk about granite and the many reasons this natural stone is such a great choice for kitchen or bathroom countertops. Keep these reasons in mind as you are selecting a stone for your new counters.
It lasts a very long time
Granite is an incredibly durable stone. As a matter of fact, with basic care and cleaning, your granite counters could last you several decades. This makes them an excellent investment. And because of their timeless beauty, they will continue to look great and match your home’s décor for years to come.
It is unique
Worried about your granite counters looking exactly like your neighbor’s? You shouldn’t! No two slabs of granite are exactly alike, so every granite counter will look unique and one of a kind. You don’t have to worry about matching anyone else’s granite. Yours will always be uniquely you.
It is bacteria resistant
This is a huge perk of granite counters, and it makes them ideal for rooms like kitchens and bathrooms. You don’t have to worry about buying harsh chemicals to keep your granite counters disinfected. After all, kitchens and bathrooms can get pretty messy. Granite is naturally bacteria resistant. This makes cleaning them and keeping them clean quite easy. Just wipe them down on a regular basis and clean up spills as soon as possible after they happen.
It is easy to care for
Keeping granite counters clean is easy. Wipe them down with a mild soap and soft cloth. Make sure you rinse and dry them. That’s it! And depending on the type of granite you end up choosing, you won’t have to get your counters resealed either. We seal them once before we install them and that is probably all they will need for their entire life time.
It looks great in every home
Thanks to its uniqueness and durability, granite is a great choice for homes and families of all sizes. It adds luxury and elegance to kitchens and bathrooms, but you don’t have to work too hard to keep them looking great.
