Natural stone counters are increasing in popularity by the day. While they may be more expensive than human-made options, stone counters’ benefits offset their considerably higher price tag. At GranitePro in MD, our experts can offer you these benefits through professional installation services.
Control Your Kitchen Design With Great Adaptability
Natural stone has infinite design potential. You cannot fail to find natural countertops that will be adaptable to your personal taste and kitchen style. Every piece of stone has its own story. GranitePro can help you bring that story to life.
Granite counters can fit well with both ultra-modern kitchens and traditional ones. You can pick the pattern and color depending on your interior decor. On the other hand, marble counters appeal more if you want to be elegant yet conservative. Nevertheless, some marble colors, such as black, can blend well with contemporary kitchen styles.
Besides, a natural stone combines well with various other materials, such as:
- Synthetic materials
With natural stone counters, you can bring sophistication and liveliness into your kitchen, subject to your personal preferences.
You might need some flexibility when you want to remodel your bathroom or kitchen. If you are looking to install some custom cabinets, the contractor can cut the natural stone into your desired shapes.
Maintain Sanitary Conditions
If you are looking for a sanitary surface for preparing meals, your best option is a natural stone. Granite counters are an on-trend kitchen option. The stone is easy to clean and highly resistant to bacterial accumulation. The feature makes it sanitary enough to use in food prep. We recommend using a cutting board, but your kitchen surfaces need to be easily sanitized.
When disinfecting the stone, avoid using washing liquids that serve to clean and disinfect. Such products often leave streaks that are damaging to natural stone countertops. In its place, you can use a mixture of warm water and mild antibacterial dish soap. Apply the mixture to the surface and use a mild cleaner to remove or prevent streaks.
Natural Stone Counters Are Durable
Many dangers in the kitchen can destroy your countertops. You will not need to worry about little accidents with natural stone because the material is tough enough.
Manufactured countertops typically fail to resist the effects of liquids. It is much easier for water, for example, to warp or separate them. Moreover, they can easily chip or crack because of the dropping of items. However, natural stone is resistant to the effects of many types of fluids, and a dropped item rarely destroys stone countertops.
Typically, stone countertops require negligible maintenance, if any, to sustain their resilience, stain-resistance, and sparkle. Marble counters need some looking after, typically annually, except where the seal warranty lasts longer. Quartz counters are generally free of maintenance.
When you go shopping for countertops, you will find many options, some of which are tempting to choose because they are relatively cheaper and easier to install. However, do not let the low price and convenience fool you. The products can be more hazardous and ineffective than you might imagine.
Manufactured countertops lack the durability and long life of natural stones. Furthermore, they contain plastics and chemicals that contribute to the destruction of the environment. You cannot recycle them easily.
Also, when you choose a professional contractor, you will protect the environment through services such as:
- Countertop removal and disposal
- Countertop template
- Countertop fabrication services
- Professional countertop installation
