Four Other Ways to Use Granite

Posted by & filed under Granite Countertops.

Sure, granite is a popular choice for countertops. But did you know there are plenty of other ways you can use this durable natural stone? We can fabricate and install a granite vanity in your Eagan home, so we thought we would also show you some other ways you can use granite. Call us if you are interested in finding out more about what we can do with granite, and we can give you more details about our work.


Granite isn’t just for countertops and vanities anymore! It can also be used as a backsplash in your kitchen. It can add a sense of continuity to the design of your kitchen, and granite is a great barrier between your walls and the various liquids that could get on it, like water, grease and other substances. And because it is scratch and stain resistant, you never have to worry that your backsplashes will lose their beauty, even after they’ve been on your kitchen walls for a few years.

Table Tops

Thanks to its elegance and durability, granite also makes a great table top. A granite-topped table is a lovely addition to any room in your home. You can have an elegant table in your dining room or a durable table in your kitchen. Table tops can go through a lot of wear and tear, so having the table tops made out of granite is a great way to ensure your new table will last quite awhile.

Fireplace Mantles

A granite fireplace mantle is a great focal point in any room in your home. You can take a ho-hum, ordinary fireplace and turn it into a work of art when you use granite! And, again, because of granite’s durability, your fireplace mantle should last you for several years, if not longer.


Again, thanks to its durability, granite is an excellent choice for tiling. You still get the same elegance of a granite vanity or granite countertop, but the granite is a long-lasting choice for flooring. Granite comes in such a wide variety of colors and patterns that you can certainly find the right one to match the décor or the type of room you are trying to decorate.
