Types and Styles of Denver Granite Countertops to Incorporate in Your Home


November 30, 2016

When it comes to adding Denver granite in your home, there are many options to consider. From thick to thin in various styles, there are many things you can do to enhance the look of your home and increase your overall value. Learn how you can incorporate different styles and thicknesses of granite in your home to impress guests and increase value.
 
  1. Thickness and Edges: As you decide what the best granite options are for your home, thickness is a large factor to consider. On average, the minimum thickness countertops are cut is 0.75 inches for bathrooms and up to 1.25 inches for kitchens. However, you can always choose a larger thickness. In many cases, the thicker the granite kitchen countertop, the more upscale it appears. Next, consider what type of edge you would like. A straight edge provides a complete rectangular look. From there, you can work with your local stone company on a bevel or bullnose appearance. Bevel adds angle to the counter and bullnose adds a rounder appearance.
  2. Color: Choosing color for your countertops is crucial. One of the top things you can do is consider the other colors in your room. For instance, if you have a large light kitchen, you can choose light or dark countertops. If you have a small space, consider lighter colors. It will not absorb light the same way a smaller space will. The same can be said for bathrooms. The great thing about granite is its individual appearance. It is mixed with a variety of colors that provide a unique appearance. If you have a lot of room to work with, choose a darker color for a dominant feel. You can choose a light color to provide an upscale fee.
  3. Mixing Colors: If you have multiple areas in a room that will have granite, you can consider using two colors. This is mostly recommended when having an island in a kitchen, or a separate vanity counter in a bathroom. You can work with your local stone company to find quality samples to compare. Ideally, you may want to find colors that complement each other. You can choose two light colors, two dark colors or two colors of different but similar shades. This will create character in your home, whether it be your bathroom or kitchen.
