Granite Kitchen Counter Tops

Granite is Always In
Granite kitchen countertops continue to lead the pack in premium kitchen design. Granite is equally smooth and cool as marble, and it has the added benefit of requiring less maintenance. More people are catching on to how effortlessly granite kitchen countertops enhance a kitchen’s style and ambiance. With granite kitchen countertops, you get a bold, beautiful look that is also incredibly durable and long-lasting. And, since it is a natural product, there are an endless array of colors and patterns to choose from.

Tiles are Out
In 2017, the emphasis is on sleek and seamless style, not on grout. Many also find that porcelain or ceramic tile can tend to chip and don’t have the long-lasting qualities of granite kitchen countertops.

Kitchen Islands are In
Kitchen islands are becoming more popular as space saving and multifunctional areas become more of a design essential. No longer just an afterthought, many choose to match their island exactly with their granite kitchen countertops, giving the island a granite countertop of its own. Islands not only add more counter space, they are a must-have for all activities in the kitchen, from conversation to food preparation.

Marble Accents are In
Gorgeously smooth yet relatively soft and cool to the touch makes it a great work surface for many a baker. Generally, however, marble is not typically used in the kitchen due to its soft nature. But, since marble develops a patina as it ages it can create a beautiful “old world” charm making it the perfect accent with granite kitchen countertops as a baking station.
