As you can see, there are so many color varieties of granite countertops, the design dilemma falls around which one to choose! Of course, you want to find a color and hue that works for your own sensibility; after all, the kitchen is one of the most traversed rooms in a home. But granite countertops also offer a classiness and grace that other options might not.

To clean granite countertops, its best to use a microfiber cloth to dust off the surface. While there are polishes and special cleaners available, many recommend just a daily wipe down with water to maintain its integrity.

Sealing your granite countertop is important so that it can continue to be the strong and durable focal point that you need it to be. Sealing usually happens once a year, which enables the granite to be less porous, so you don’t have to fret over oils and stains.

Overall, the world is at your fingertips when it comes to selecting a quality and beautiful granite countertop. Ask yourself which design might best fit your design plans and especially which color you would like to see every day since the kitchen is an unavoidable daily space!
