Some of the most common home upgrades or renovations are the kitchen and bathroom. These two rooms are high traffic areas and need to be functional, visually appealing and warm making every feature within these rooms crucially important to the overall feel. Most important of all, especially in the kitchen, is typically the countertops. Countertops are a heavy investment and picking the right kind is important to the long-term enjoyment of the room. Nowadays there are nearly a dozen options for countertops and the prices can vary between inexpensive for something that may last years, to something that may last a lifetime.
 
While there are many options, one of the most timeless and aesthetically pleasing of all the options is granite. Granite is a very strong igneous rock, which is beautiful, unique and requires only a small amount of energy in maintenance. Granite countertops can last for a lifetime without ever losing any of its beauty. They are very durable, do not easily scratch and are very easy to clean and keep sanitary. They are also heat resistant, allowing someone to place a very hot pot, operate a toaster or other hot items on the counter without any kind of damage being caused to the granite. Granite is typically a little more expensive than other options, but when considering the benefits in contrast to those of cheap alternatives, granite is becoming the natural choice. In addition, while some granite is expensive, like all products, granite can also be found inexpensively. It is possible to purchase the right granite countertop for less cost overall than the cheap alternatives.
 
However, when people are considering countertops, it is important to weigh the options. With all countertops from slate, to stainless steel, granite, laminate and others, there are three important things to consider before making a final decision.
 
Appearance
The appearance of the countertop should be beautiful, easy to clean and complement the look you are trying to achieve. Different countertops have different methods of cleaning and many options are prone to staining if the wrong kind of cleaner is used.
 
Durability
New countertops are not a temporary option and should be purchased for the long haul. More than ever, having a countertop that lasts for a long time and continues to look brand new throughout the years is becoming the standard practice. Purchasing an alternative that may look faded, discoloured or stained in less than a decade is not the right choice for a homeowner.
 
Increasing and Retaining the Value of the Home
A good countertop retains its value at nearly 100 per cent or better. For every dollar invested into a new countertop, the value of your home should increase in kind or at a higher rate. Countertops are what people first see when they walk into a kitchen or bathroom, so picking one that remains beautiful and ‘like new' for now and indefinitely into the future is ideal. If you do sell your home, you will certainly want to recoup the value of the beautiful countertops you are leaving behind.
 
Careful consideration should be made when purchasing new countertops to ensure that you are selecting the right ones for your home both in the short- and long-term. Contact a top Burlington granite supplier for everything from information to installation.
