Granite countertops are not only beautiful and elegant but also very functional. It’s why they are so popular in kitchens and bathrooms. Granite is a strong and hard-wearing material and it comes deep inside Earth. It starts as liquid magma and it can up to millions of years for the rock to form. Of course, this is the case of natural granite but there are artificial replacements as well.
Because of its durability, granite is used for structures that need to last longer such as tombstones and countertops. The granite is extracted from a quarry, cut and then sanded and polished. After adding any details and customizing it, the granite countertop is installed in our kitchen. You might not realize it, but you have a piece of history in your home.
Each countertop is unique. They each have natural characteristics that differentiate them from the rest, just like there are no two identical rocks. They can also differ in color, texture and size, as well as in design and other elements that are usually elements that the designer or manufacturer chooses. Granite countertops are particularly beautiful because of their natural qualities and they are so appreciated because they are very durable and long-lasting. This is also a reason to be very careful when choosing the countertop since you won’t be replacing it for a long time.
