When you are remodeling your kitchen, there are plenty of decisions that need to be made. Are you just going to apply a fresh coat of paint on the walls and have your cabinets refinished? Or are you going to have new countertops and cabinets installed, not to mention new flooring and appliances? If you are thinking about new countertops, we highly recommend granite kitchen countertops. Eagan homeowners love granite for several different reasons, and here are a few of the reasons we hear about the most.
Benefit 1: Granite has become synonymous with elegance, so it is a great way to add a sense of luxury to your new kitchen. With this sense of luxury, however, you do not have to sacrifice quality and durability. Granite is one of the strongest natural stones on the planet, so granite kitchen countertops can handle just about anything. You can cut food directly on your granite counters, but we do not recommend doing this because you could damage your knife!
Benefit 2: Granite kitchen countertops are also amazing simply because they come in such a huge variety of colors and styles. Finding the perfect slab of granite to complement your home and your own personal style will be incredibly easy. Granite is found in shades of white, cream, gray, black and just about every shade and color in between. If you are looking for a unique countertop material for your kitchen, again, you can’t go wrong with granite. No two slabs are exactly alike, so you will not have to worry that your new counters look exactly like your neighbor’s.
Benefit 3: If you are going for functionality over looks, granite kitchen countertops are still your best bet. Granite is incredibly easy to care for, and it is burn, chip, heat and stain resistant. It is also practical for kitchens because it is bacteria resistant. Worrying about buying a special cleaner or disinfectant for your kitchen counters will be a thing of the past! Just wipe them with water and a soft cloth and your clean up is done. Your granite kitchen countertops will be sealed as part of our fabrication process and, chances are, you will not have to ever worried about having them resealed either.
