If lockdown has made you realise your current bathroom is looking rather tired, granite may not have been your first choice of material for new countertops. But there are many reasons why, in fact, it could be a great otion for this busy room. Here are some of them:
It enhance your property’s value
Granite is a sought-after look, and its popularity has soared in recent years. It’s durable and has a natural beauty. So it’s likely to be a great investment if you’re thinking of selling up in the next few years. Even if you’re not, you’ll have a great-looking bathroom to relish!
And because, as we’ve said, it’s long-lasting, you only need to fit your granite bathroom countertops once.
Each piece is unique
Since granite is a natural stone, no two pieces of it are going to be identical. So each slab has a unique appeal. This substance comes in a variety of colours. But we’re guessing that for your bathroom, you’ll probably want a soft, neutral tone. That could include grey or white. You don’t get the dramatic veining you do with marble, but granite looks stunning nonetheless.
Resistant to heating, staining and etching
If you have a busy household and your bathroom gets a lot of traffic, granite countertops could be the perfect choice. This stone is lower-maintenance than marble, and for daily cleaning just needs a quick wipe with a soft cloth to keep it looking its gorgeous best. That means it’s tough enough to withstand most day-to-day wear and tear. It even resists heat, staining and etching.
Even if you do have a spillage of, say, a messy hair dye (accidents do happen, after all), the natural tones of granite will hide it well.
