Beautify Your Kitchen With Countertops From Granite Grannies

The Kitchen is the heart of any home. We cook, eat, work, and play there. When you’re looking for a replacement for your kitchen countertops, it makes sense to choose a material that’s as durable and lasting as your family. Granite Grannies has the perfect solution — stone!

Stone countertops can benefit you and your kitchen in a number of ways:

  • Unique Beauty — Stone countertops make a marvelously unique addition to any cookery. Each piece is its own work of art, drawn from the earth and crafted with care and precision to add beauty and warmth to your kitchen.

  • Longevity — Stone countertops are infinitely more durable than the manufactured laminate countertops found in so many other homes these days. Guaranteed to last as long as your house does, stone is one of the toughest materials around.

  • Easy Maintenance — Natural stone countertops are easy to maintain — a simple wet cloth is usually all you need to keep your stone counters clean and free of debris. For additional protection, a sealant can be used to add a layer that will ward off even the worst burns, scuffs, and scratches.

  • Cleanliness — Stone is non-porous, meaning it will not easily absorb liquids, stains, dirt, and bacteria. Countertops made of granite, marble, and other minerals are great for kitchens that have to hold up daily to messy kids and messy cooks!

  • Flexibility — Each slab of natural stone is cut specifically to fit your situation and setup. Whether you need rounded edges and corners or a kitchen island shaped like a “T,” there’s no limit to what can be done with a stone countertop in the hands of an expert craftsman.

  • Eco-Friendliness — While manufactured counters are full of plastics and compounds that contribute to greenhouse gases, natural stone is exceptionally long-lasting and free of man-made substances. With stone countertops, you won’t be exposing yourself and your family to excess chemical fumes that can accompany synthetic products.

  • Increased Value — Homeowners can rest easy knowing that a set of luxurious stone countertops will add value to any
    property. With their beautiful appearance, easy maintenance, and lasting durability, natural stone countertops are an
    effective way to attract future homebuyers.

It’s hard to be unique, especially in this day and age of “cookie-cutter” homes where every residential structure looks just like the one next to it. The neighborhood HOA may not allow you to paint the exterior of your beloved house something other than Comfort Gray, and they might not like it when you enquire about throwing some Italianate eaves under your roof’s overhang, but what’s stopping you from making a change on the inside of your home?

Of all the rooms in a house, the kitchen is always the most customizable. Tired of those preinstalled stock cabinets? Tear them down and put some louvered cabinets up instead. Is that old stainless steel sink getting a little too out of fashion? Throw it out and install a hardy fireclay sink in its place! The same goes for virtually everything else you find in a kitchen — the floors, the appliances, the lights, and even the walls. However, no change you make to your kitchen will have the aesthetic impact that replacing your countertops will. When you want to make the biggest impression, getting new countertops is a no-brainer!
