Why Granite is the Ultimate Material for Kitchen Countertops

Beautiful, Durable and Great Value

Granite is a popular trend in kitchen design, but did you know it has been valued for millennia for its beauty and durability? In fact, it has been used since ancient Egypt to build pyramids, and continually as a material for art, sculpture, jewelry and more. Granite is a unique material in appearance and structure which is renowned for meeting the needs of discerning homeowners.

Spectacular Options for Interior Design

Granite countertops can be installed in a variety of shapes and configurations, allowing you to achieve a wide variety of looks and functionality in your interior design. Stone City’s granite countertops in Sioux Falls, SD can be prepared to fit a variety of fixtures, such as cooktops and sink installations, at affordable prices. We can prepare granite countertops with softly curving edges for a comfortable feel and traditional look, or with clean lines and striking angles for a modern design. If you want to create an open space kitchen plan, we can craft and install granite countertops for a breakfast bar or island, with multiple levels for galley seating or shelving. If you can dream it, we can build it.

With so many granite colors and patterns to choose from, it’s easy to select a choice that will fit in with your kitchen design. Since granite is comprised of many different types of crystals, the color and pattern depends on its crystal composition. The most common colors include white, gray, black, pink and orange. Occasionally, granite comes in green, brown and blue hues as well.

Durable Surface & Easy Maintenance

Whether you use your granite countertops to cook or entertain, it’s an extraordinarily durable material that lets you do almost anything, without worry of damage or special maintenance. If you like to cook and bake, you’ll love working on the smooth surface. You can even cut directly on granite, but we don’t recommend it because you’ll dull your knife before even making a scratch on granite, it’s just that durable.

Additionally, granite is a nonporous material, which means it won’t absorb odors or liquids, and cleaning is as easy as wiping down with antibacterial cleaner. Unlike other materials that can develop scratches or pores, with granite you’ll never have to worry about odors or bacteria remaining below the surface.

Add Value to Your Home

With so many options to choose from, you’ll love choosing a granite that complements your kitchen design and looks luxuriously fresh, yet remain timeless for years to come. If you love the striking look of marble, you may be surprised you can find very similar patterns in granite for a fraction of the price of marble countertops. In any case, installing granite countertops adds beauty and value to your home, which you’ll enjoy every day. If you decide to sell your home, it will also add a distinguishing value for buyers.
