You may not have thought of it before, but granite countertops are a very practical and aesthetically pleasing choice in bathrooms.
Here in this article, we are going to talk about the pros of installing a granite countertop in your bathroom. We will talk about appearance and functionality, and by the end of this article, we are sure that you will feel as good about granite countertops in bathrooms ad we do.
Granite Countertops Always Look Great
There is a reason why granite countertops are really popular amongst homeowners and business owners across North America – and it’s that granite countertops look great.
Granite slabs have an attractive, natural and unique beauty to them that is formed over years of heating a compressing beneath the earth. The unique look and unpredictable features reinforce the natural aesthetic of these slabs. When you look at a granite slab, it is hard not to be impressed by the intriguing interplay of colours and lines that were formed naturally and unintentionally.
You will also find a wide variety of styles, designs and colours of granite slabs, which gives you the opportunity to find something distinct for your bathroom.
Affordability of Granite Countertops
In most cases, when people need a countertop for their bathroom, they don’t need a large slab. Bathroom countertops don’t take up too much space and don’t need to be really long or wide, which means that you can save some money on your slab.
When you compare your countertop needs in the kitchen, you realize that you don’t need as much bathroom countertop space. So if you think that a granite slab would be out of your budget for a kitchen renovation, it can be well within the realm of possibility for a bathroom renovation.
Furthermore, on the topic of money, granite countertops give off a feeling of sophistication and luxury. Installing a granite countertop in your home will increase the overall value of your home.
Maintenance, Durability and Performance of Granite Countertops
Granite countertops, particularly granite countertops in a bathroom, are fairly easy to maintain. Once the countertop is sealed after it has been installed, it will be resistant to mold, stains and some bacteria (though you will still need to clean it from time to time).
Keeping your granite countertop well maintained will also help with its durability. Beyond proper maintenance, granite countertops are scratch and heat-resistant, which make granite countertops the ideal choice for bathrooms.
When you start a bathroom renovation project, don’t neglect the many benefits of installing a granite countertop in your bathroom. We hope that the information in this article helps convince you that granite countertops are an ideal choice in bathrooms.
