If you are going to redo your kitchen, you might want to replace your counters. There are a lot of different materials that you can choose to use in your kitchen for your counters. One of them is granite. This material can give you a really lovely look in your kitchen and can fit into a lot of aesthetics, so no matter what you want the finished product to look like, you should have no problems. There are several benefits to choosing to have granite installed in your kitchen to replace your existing countertops.
One reason is that each slab of granite is going to be unique, especially if you are choosing natural stone. Even two pieces of material that come from the same larger rock are going to be slightly different because each slab is going to have inclusions, imperfections, and color changes in slightly different areas. That is what is going to give you that individual, unique look. While each granite countertop is going to look unique, they will all still be a cohesive unit because they will still look similar enough, and that look is what will carry through.
Granite is fairly durable, and it will stand up to a lot of use and abuse and have a good lifespan. You still need to make sure that you are doing everything you can to maintain it well, like making sure that you get it sealed and using the right cleaning products, but as long as you do that, you can end up with countertops that are going to last for a long while and look good while they are doing that.
Even though granite countertops are pretty durable, that doesn't mean that they can't be damaged. All it takes is one heavy item coming down on your countertop at exactly the wrong angle and the wrong time and you can end up with a chip in your counter. Luckily, that is pretty easy to repair. The installation company will use a special putty that is tinted to match your granite countertops and use it to fill in the chip. Once the counter has been resealed, no one will be able to tell that there was any damage to your countertops in the first place.
