When you want to add an element of timeless design to your home, consider adding granite in your bathroom and kitchen remodelling projects. The variety of veins and colours available in granite and its durability make it one of the tops choices of homeowners who are searching for a new look in these special rooms. Keep in mind that you will have to pay a little more for the attractive appeal of granite but it will certainly hold up to the punishment of hot pots and pans in the kitchen and water spots in the bathroom. You will want to always take good care of your granite to extend its life and the luxurious look that it brings to your home.
Decide on Your Style
First decide in which rooms you want to have granite installed so that you can begin to think about colours and prices. Granite worktops in your kitchen will give it a more professional look and take your food preparation to a new level. You can use a monochromatic colour scheme or combine different shades and textures for a more interesting look. Think about the type of flooring that you want to use, colours that are used in the tile and paint, and select granite that will complement them.
Decide on a Budget
When you enjoy having some of the finer things in your home you may have to pay a little more for the look that you want to achieve with your decor. Granite will always be beautiful but you’ll be hard pressed to find it on sale or at a bargain price. The finish is timeless, will give your rooms a traditional look, and will add value to your home should you decide to sell it.
Benefits of Using Granite
The benefits of using granite in your bathroom and kitchen are many and can help persuade you to spend more money for a high-end design that adds a touch of elegance to your decor. Your worktops will have a deep and rich look that cannot be copied by using any other materials. Even though there is a porous factor with granite that absorbs stains, you can ask the installer to seal it professionally for you or you may even want to tackle this job as a weekend project. You’ll find that granite will be heat resistant which makes removing hot pots and pans from the stove a worry-free experience. Finally, the resale value that granite adds to your home makes this home improvement project one that you may want to seriously consider as you upgrade your home to a more modern look.
With a timeless look of elegance your granite will continue to shine and make the rooms of your home more inviting and practical all in the same package.
