All about granite countertops

A key component of 5-star hotel bathrooms

So beautiful, luxurious, and opulent, they’re made from a combination of quartz, feldspar, and mica.

Since ancient times this stone, with its crystal-like and speckled appearance, has been used to construct everything from temples to castles and palaces to headstones.

Granite countertops are strong, stain resistant and durable, but make no mistake: They’re as tough as they are beautiful. They are especially practical for the bathroom, where the countertops may experience anything from hot flat irons to hairdryers and lotions and creams.

Not only won’t blister and melt when exposed to heat, but granite countertops also won’t absorb liquid if properly sealed. That makes them the perfect choice for a busy kitchen.

When selecting this for your kitchen or bathroom consider:

  • Color. Although these countertops are mostly seen in natural, organic tones, there are also vibrant shades available.

  • Measurements. Thickness varies, so it’s best to discuss this with your granite expert.

  • Finish. There are three main choices: polished, matte or honed, and leather, but there are also two, more uncommon, ones available: flamed and bush hammered.

  • Construction. Do you want slab or tile? While the seamless expanse of slab is especially elegant, so is tile and it’s somewhat less expensive.

  • Maintenance. Be aware that dark hues will show fingerprints and other markings. Like most stones, granite is somewhat porous so you might want to think about a sealant.
    Sealants can last for years, and when they do need to be replaced you can probably do it yourself, but always call your installer to find out what was used. Many don’t mix well together so its important to be consistent.

  • Budget. These countertops can be pricey and if you choose a slab, you do need to buy the whole thing and then have it cut to fit. With tiles, you just buy what you need.

It almost never happens, but if you do get a chip don’t try to repair it yourself. Call a professional; most likely it’s a simple fix like filling it in with an epoxy but this should be done professionally.
