Granite countertops are exploding across the housing market. From new construction builds to remodeling projects, getting a natural stone surface installed within the kitchen, bathroom, or both keeps growing in popularity. Just as hardwood flooring has withstood the test of time, it appears the demand for this material will continue at least into the foreseeable future and likely well beyond. With a wide range of color options available, in addition to the varying veining intricacies of each granite slab, no two countertops are exactly alike. However, due to their natural state, there are often leftover pieces following an installation. Fortunately, there are multiple other uses for granite throughout the home.
As with anything, granite has pros and cons but knowing that the material you select is extremely durable opens up a variety of different possibilities for its use. Not only can granite add value to your property by being installed in the typical locations, but this material can also aid in other areas. If you have some leftover pieces or wish to create a unique look with something new, then consider the following alternate uses for granite both inside and outside the home
Encasing your fireplace with granite creates an immediate focal point wherever it’s located. In addition, using the same material as your countertops can help extend the color and design scheme of a home from the kitchen into living areas and also serves as an extremely durable and practical application of the natural stone material.
Extra pieces of any size can be cut to be used as shelving in any area of the home. Gain some extra storage in the kitchen or bathroom with granite shelves or extend the pre-existing patterns of a kitchen or bathroom into other living areas with unique shelf placements.
Granite use doesn’t end inside the home. Outdoors, the material can be used as a flooring surface for an entertainment space or walkway. Curbing to either outline a walkway, garden, or landscaped area is also another area where the natural stone may be applied.
