The beauty of granite when it comes to kitchen and bathroom counter tops is multi-faceted. It’s versatile, extremely durable, and is realtively easy to maintain. At the same time, it’s also unique, looks incredible, and can fit almost any style or type of room. With tremendous aesthetic appeal and a practicality that’s unmistakable, it’s no surprise that granite countertops are some of the most popular choices in the country today.
As more and more artisans work with granite in a variety of ways, the trends when it comes to kitchen and bathroom remodels can shift, and here are three of the choices you’ll face when purchasing your granite counter tops:
Highly diverse patterns:
When it comes to the patterns your counter tops come in, you have an almost infinite number of choices. You can choose a slab that matches whatever your desired aesthetic is or the pattern that most appeals to your eye. From rich veins to mesmerizing swirls to specks like grains of sand, no slab will be alike.
The colors of the rainbow:
It’s not as simple as white, black or brown! There are so many rich and vibrant colors available when it comes to granite. From Kashmir White to Black Galaxy, Brown Pearl to Ubatuba, you’ll be able to choose a granite color that’s perfect for your kitchen, bathroom, or other area. And don’t forget to mix it up – try black counter tops with white granite or vice versa for a look that will really stand out!
You’ll see colors ranging from green to blue, orange to grey, black to white, and it will be important to find one that’s timeless, matches your aesthetic, and fits the style of your home or office.
The finish line:
Did you know that you can have your granite counter tops finished in several different styles that all bring a different look to your remodel? Do you want it polished with a high gloss surface like a mirror? Honed to give a matte look that lets the rest of the room shine? Or would you want to try the newest trend, the leathered finish, specifically created to offer a more natural look to your granite countertops? It all depends on what your needs and desires are when it comes to the finished product. (No pun intended!)
