Inspiring Granite Countertops Designs
As the leading provider of beautifully textured and ultimately ornate granite countertops in Toronto, we are proud to be able to supply highly durable and future-proof countertop solutions to a wide variety of clients. The only question is, is a granite countertop really for you? What are the chief benefits? And what different options are available?
The Benefits of Granite Countertops
As a natural stone, granite is prized for its durability. Even better, granite hasn’t waned in popularity as a choice of material for kitchen countertops since 1997. What this means is that if you are looking to add value to your property through your upcoming kitchen renovation, a granite counter top is both value adding and future proof.
However, a granite countertop isn’t just about adding future-proof aesthetic value to a property. Rather, a granite countertop also offers homeowners a lot more flexibility when it comes to how they are looking to style and add different levels of functionality to a kitchen.
This is why at our Toronto showroom, we make available a range of granite countertops which vary in everything from color to overall surface pattern. In fact, granite is a particularly excellent choice of countertop material for those who might be worried about the staining potential of materials like marble, wood, and plastic based laminate surfaces.
Bring your Kitchen Alive with a Beautiful Natural Look
Of course, most people choose to incorporate granite countertops into their kitchens due to the quintessentially natural look which the stone provides. From earthy to modern kitchen styles, granite is an ideal stone for tying rooms together and adding eye-catching flare, especially when polished and sealed to a high standard.
Resistant and easy to Repair
Are you looking for a natural stone effect in your kitchen but are worried about dropped items and their ability to damage your counter surface? If so, don’t be. Granite is one of just a few stone surface materials which it is possible to repair when something goes wrong. In this case, should the worst happen, you won’t need to invest in an entirely new countertop.
Strong & Versatile
Granite is strong, very strong. In this case, most people never have to worry about breakages or problems developing in the same way that they can with softer materials such as laminate surfaces and soapstone. However as well as being strong, granite is also very versatile. From arches and curves to more complex designs, at our Toronto workshop, we can shape your new granite countertop into whatever shape or design will best suit your kitchen layout. This being the case, if you are looking for an ideal way to complement a completely custom kitchen, granite is the perfect choice of material when it comes to adding the most perfect finish possible.
Better Overall Functionality
While every countertop material has its merits, the strength of granite (even after being shaped and polished) leaves any countertop very hard to scratch. Of course, you will probably still want to use a chopping board for all your daily slicing and dicing. However, unlike a wood, laminate, or ornate soapstone surface, you won’t need to worry about a slip of a knife ruining your countertops overall aesthetic appeal. In like regard, because sealed granite is non-porous and heat resistant, you can be as active in your kitchen as you like, without having to worry about accidental stains or damage caused by set down pots and pans fresh off the stove.
