The kitchen countertop is probably the most abused space in the kitchen. Hot dishes straight from the stove land here, it houses our mixers, ovens and other appliances, if milk boils and overflows it falls over this, a dish slips from our hand and is all over the countertop, we chop our veggies on this… Wow. Every day we do so many things in one place. To stand this test of time and strain, granite kitchen countertops are the amongst the best. However, this doesn’t mean that the choice is limited; there is a wide range of possibilities that you can choose from. Start from natural stone, engineered stone, stainless steel, wood, concrete, glass, tiles, laminates…whew, just assess them and your needs and have it the way you like it.

However, many kitchen decorators and renovators recommend a granite kitchen counter top due to its umpteen pros and relative cons of its other peers. A stainless steel counter can be quite noisy, soapstone counters get darker over time, a marble countertop requires heavy maintenance.

Well, in any size, granite adds beauty and durability to your kitchen countertop. Consider it for your kitchen renovation project. Find granite kitchen countertops in Edmonton today.
