If you’re remodeling your kitchen before the end of the year, you want a design and material that is functional and elegant. The choices you are presented with can be overwhelming. How do you know which material or stone is best for your house? Every person is unique, and different materials complement the different décor we have on display. When you’re looking for a sturdy stone that provides a number of benefits, you can’t go wrong with granite.

Visit our kitchen and bath showroom in West Chester, PA to browse our natural stone slabs. While you’re here, I’ve provided the four key benefits that can make granite the perfect stone for your house.

Durability: Once the surface of the granite is sealed (which we’ll do for you), the counter will be extremely durable. You’ll see that the surface is resistant to heat, meaning that the material won’t damage when exposed to hot dishes and pans. Plus, it will stand the test of time through the rigors of everyday use.

Maintenance: Taking care of granite is easy. You’ll soon find that the stone is resistant to bacteria, scratches, stains, and mold. That leaves you without the hassle of constant cleaning and sanitizing the counter top. You should get in the habit of cleaning off the countertop after cooking and using the kitchen, but with its ease of care, all you need is a soft sponge and soap to run over the surface.

The kitchen is the one room in the home that you want to look the nicest. That means constantly upgrading its appearance to add attractiveness when you have company. Despite the appearance of the cabinets and surrounding materials, countertops are a central look to the design of the kitchen. When you’re looking to implement a new material for your kitchen countertop, how do you know which one’s best?

You can get a well-known stone material, or you can get a material that catches your eye. You want the countertop to blend seamlessly with your kitchen walls and other décor, so choose wisely. Some of the most popular materials are granite, quartz, marble, and soapstone, which we have right here at Stone Masters, Inc. in our kitchen and bath showroom in West Chester, PA. Other top materials are steel, concrete, laminate, glass, and composite. All prices fluctuate, so choose one that is within your budget.

Granite: Granite countertops in Philadelphia are made of the strongest material, where you’ll need heavy cabinets to support its weight. They are easy to maintain as owners will quickly find they can withstand wear and tear, as well as knives and heat on the surface. Plus, they are reasonably priced for the beautiful architecture. Granite is one of the most popular materials when it comes to redesigning the kitchen countertops, so if you want to go your own way, there are plenty other materials to choose from.

Quartz: With quartz, you can let your imagination run wild with the amount of colors available. You won’t have to sacrifice the feeling of a natural stone product, as it looks all natural, but is truly engineered to provide a nice composite of stone and solid surfacing. You won’t have to maintain it too much, and its price may sway you in its direction, though it is an engineered material. Pros: color range and price range.
