Why Granite?




Granite countertops for the kitchen are an obvious advantage over other materials that can suffer from minor neglect. Benefits of granite counter tops aside, there are a fire things that you should keep in mind while you're planning your new kitchen remodel.

For renovated or new homes alike, granite has grown in popularity more and more. There are many reasons for this. Here are some of the top benefits.

The natural beauty of a granite counter top. Vast arrays of shades, colours, and textures are available. Colors to compliment any decor can be found weather its a neutral color or something bright, your personal tastes can always be satisfied. One note here, if your counter top will need more than one slab to complete, make sure they come from the same mine batch or color shades could be objectionably different between slabs.

The durability of kitchen granite counter tops. Granite is one of the most durable materials available. Unlike Formica, it isn't subject to burning by hot pots or pans being cooked with. Granite is resistant to staining and discoloring when properly sealed on a regular basis. Sealing is easily done by anyone, and a properly sealed granite counter top will maintain a beautiful shiny luster for a lifetime.

 Every slab of granite will have different feature from the next. Patterns, color textures, distribution and depth can all vary from slab to slab, providing different character. Any type of cabinet hardware fixtures can be complemented as well as cabinet finish or flooring. A richness is added to your kitchen, one that simple cannot be duplicated with other materials.

Although granite will add some expense to your kitchen remodel project, there are few better investments in your homes value. Using granite for your kitchen granite counter top will increase your home value, whether you're planning on selling your home soon or not. Home shoppers are more inclined towards a recently remodeled kitchen void of repair needs. They're more likely to pay more for the home, or go from feeling indifferent to preferred.

Why Marble?




From ancient history, mankind has had an ongoing love affair with all things marble. Owning a marble countertop is now within the reach of the majority.

Where Do Marble Countertops Get Their "Look"?

 One of the best qualities of marble countertops is the variety of color and veining. Laminate and solid surface countertops (i.e., Formica or Corian brands, respectively) all attempt to reproduce the beauty of marble, yet with mixed results. Marble is a metamorphic rock, which means it changes from its original, sedimentary form (in this case, limestone or dolomite rock) to marble under severe pressure and heat. That highly distinctive aspect of marble--the veining--is the result of impurities in the original limestone. Under extreme pressure and heat, the original materials completely re-crystallize. The purest marble is white, type that Renaissance artists carved into statues.

Advantages of Marble Countertops.

 There are plenty of reasons why people over the centuries have valued marble as a practical surface, not just for marble countertops, but for other uses:

Fancy Details - Marble countertops can be fabricated to have fancy ogee edges (as well as other profile styles), due to the softness and overall workability of marble.

Cutting - If you've worked with marble tiles, for instance, they cut easier than granite, which is prone to chip more easily. Marble cuts like a dream. This allows for fancier design capabilities without the fear of damage, relative to other types of stone.

Decent Durability - Even with marble's inherent "softness," it is still hard enough to withstand high traffic. Resists Heat - It's an ideal work surface. It is also heat resistance, lending itself well to kitchen use.

Choosing





They are both stone. They are both natural products, which means there can be variations in colour and pattern, a certain uniqueness.

Both come in a wide range of colours and patterns. Both can be stained by oily or highly coloured foods. So both require resealing every once in a while.

Both are relatively heatproof, and they won't scorch but granite is a much harder, stronger stone than marble. It resists impacts and scratches better. And it is resistant to acids like tomato juice, lemon juice or vinegar. Marble is simply calcium carbonate, just like chalk, but in a compressed and crystallized form. So acids can etch the surface permanently.

Some marbles have very little pattern (some are totally pure white) so stains and marring stand out more. Granite typically has a complex mottled pattern that hides stains better. So for hard use, granite is a better choice.

A marble countertop or slab is a traditional working surface for pastry chefs, because the cold stone keeps the butter in the pastry layers from melting. But polished granite would probably work as well.

Practical considerations aside, marble has a look that is possibly more elegant and luxurious. It has extremely fine crystals, which create a snowy or satiny look. The colours and patterns can be quite dramatic.

Granite tends to have larger crystals, perhaps the size of peas or rice grains. This creates a coarser, more sparkly look. While granite comes in a range of colours and patterns, that range is probably narrower than for marble. So most people seem to recommend granite for hard use areas like countertops.

Marble is higher maintenance, less durable and about as expensive. Its one advantage may be in appearance, but that will depend on the owner's taste and the kitchen's overall style.
