Looking for a beautiful, durable kitchen countertop? Our granite countertops are ideal.
If you’re considering remodeling your kitchen, or if you’re building a new home, the choice of countertop is very important. Not only do you need to choose a material that looks great and helps tie your whole kitchen design together, you also need to make sure your countertop is durable enough for daily use. Fortunately, a granite countertop can meet these needs and more. Here are some of the top benefits of choosing a granite countertop from Mission West Kitchen & Bath for your kitchen.
Granite Fits Your Budget
First of all, it’s important to understand that there is a granite option for just about every budget. The cost of the granite countertop will depend on the rarity of the stone you select, where it is sourced from, and the size of seamless piece you require.
Granite Looks Great
Because granite is a natural material, no two granite countertops will ever look exactly alike. So you are guaranteed a unique look for your kitchen. Plus, because most granite contains quartz crystals, it looks fantastic in sunlight and will reflect light in subtly different ways throughout the day and under your kitchen lights at night. There are hundreds of different color choices and patterns available so you’re sure to find a shade that complements your kitchen design.
Granite is Versatile
Granite works well in just about any setting, so whether you are going for a traditional or modern look you can use granite. Plus, granite’s hardness gives you many different options for the cut of the countertop itself. Unlike softer materials like marble, granite can hold arches, curves, and crisp 90 degree angles so you can have a nice beveled edge on your countertop.
Granite is Durable
Granite is extremely durable, and will easily last a lifetime if given even the most basic care. It can’t be cut, scratched, etched, or marked by normal kitchen activities, including cutting food or setting hot pots on your countertop. It is also resistant to acids. For more porous types of granite, you have the option of boosting the stone’s natural durability even further by sealing it every 5 to 10 years.
Granite is Easy to Care For
Granite is very easy to clean, even if you’ve gotten a stain on it, and in fact it has been shown to be the most sanitary countertop material available. If your granite does become damaged, it can be repaired, either by polishing out a scratch or by filling any chips with colored epoxy.
