Denver Granite Countertop Advantages Over Laminate


January 31, 2020

Kitchen and bathroom countertop surfaces receive everyday use unlike other areas of a home. For this reason, the materials selected for these spaces need to be resilient and capable of providing a hygienic environment. In both situations, exposure to food prep or personal items creates a unique scenario and one that should be considered when deciding upon a surface material. Whether you are building a new home, purchasing an existing property, or considering an upgrade to your current countertops, one modern option far outweighs its aging predecessor.

Granite kitchen countertops have multiple advantages and their popularity has only been increasing since introduction. Versatile enough to meet the needs of any homeowner, not only can these natural stone surfaces really change the look of your space but the incorporation of rock inside a home creates a unique element and experience all its own. If you’re tired of seeing the same old dingy yellow or fading colors of laminate countertops from the past, consider an upgrade to granite and these specific characteristics.

Appearance

Natural stone can really enhance your kitchen and totally change the current look of your room. Unlike laminate, which typically is one solid color throughout the entire space, granite provides options in color selection, in addition to any amount of natural veining an individual may desire. Homeowners are able to see their exact countertop slab prior to installation while selecting various corner and edge shaping, which may not be available with laminate straight edge corners.

Durability

Granite is also an extremely tough surface and one that is resistant to heat, scratches, and virtually all signs of wear. While use of a trivett is recommended, hot pans will not damage your granite countertops. This material will last a lifetime and with proper care will never show wear and tear like its laminate predecessor. 
Value

Installing new countertops are one of a handful of upgrades that add value to a home. Granite, in lieu of laminate, only increases this value. While true in a financial sense, granite can also add personal value to your spaces while creating enjoyable work environments within your home.
