Granite is a one of the hardest types of rock in existence, so it make sense to chose granite countertops over other materials. It is also cheaper than materials such as marble, though it is possible to get granite countertops which look like marble. This is in contrast to most people’s opinions of the material.
Because granite is hard wearing, a work surface made of granite is less likely to scratch or chip than one made from synthetic materials or wood. It is also less likely to suffer from conditions such as mildew or mould than other surfaces.
Granite countertops come in a range of colours, from a very dark black to an almost ivory colour. more
