Everyone wants to have a beautiful home. One of the most central locations in any home is the kitchen. It’s where the family gathers, company gathers, and the kitchen always sees a lot of activity. Naturally, you will want your kitchen to be the most beautiful place that it possibly can be.
If you want to make your home beautiful, you should consider new granite counter tops as part of the design. Adding new granite counter tops is a great idea because not only is your home beautiful for you, but when you choose to sell your home, new granite counter tops – especially new granite or natural stone counter tops – will increase the value of your home. You’ll make a better profit, and the great thing is that you can get that larger profit or simply a more beautiful home very easily. Just adding new granite counter tops will not magically bring in more money or a bigger profit from sale. The project must fit with its surrounding and be a quality install. For example I had a Durham North Carolina natural stone fabrication company, cut and then install the granite counters in my own home in Port Saint Lucie Florida along with the one I sold prior to my current home, which I made over a hundred thousand dollars profit when sold. Yes the market was better two years ago for home sales, when I sold it. The home did sell very fast though, due mostly in part to my upgraded kitchen and bathrooms which both had granite counter tops, marble flooring and stone tile walls. In this market everything that makes your home stand out is a positive addition.
Stone counter tops are installed fast with little mess to the surrounding areas. Whether you want to have new granite kitchen counters or marble bathroom counters, natural stone is a great choice. Like marble counter tops, granite counter tops have many colors in them. This natural stone will change its appearance based on the lighting in the room. If your kitchen or bathroom gets a lot of natural sunlight, you are sure to see a rainbow of colors. If you are on a tight budget you can even get a thin granite overlay, that slips right over your existing counter tops and use the underlying counter as support. This is a fast an inexpensive way to get great looks for a very low price. With granite vaneir over lays, you have the same color choices the only real difference is the thickness.
Granite is heat resistant, so you won’t burn your counter when you’re in a hurry and set a hot pan on it. It’s very sturdy, and even if it does break, you can have it repaired without replacing the entire counter. The non-porous surface means that your counter won’t harbor germs, and you won’t have to worry about cutting boards because granite is hard enough that you can cut on it without chipping it. Granite is also perfect for those who bake, because the cool surface is perfect for kneading or rolling dough. Keep in mind that while your counter tops won’t harbor germs, if you use tile the grout can be a perfect place for mildew and germs.
