Granite in Richmond Countertops
Granite is very similar to marble and quartz in a lot of ways and makes wonderful new kitchen countertops, tops for bathroom vanities, fireplace surrounds and hearths, and is also excellent for outdoor kitchens.
It's second to diamonds in hardness, which means the diamond is the only other natural stone material that can cut it or harm it.
Granite is quite a bit different-looking from marble or quartz because it's much grainier in appearance. It's a course-grained structure comprised of mainly feldspar, quartz, mica, and amphibole minerals that interlock together, forming lighter colors throughout the material.
Granite is commonly white, pink, or gray but can also be green. It is an extremely dense material and is found in huge, massive quantities in the earth. It is found just about everywhere as it is widely distributed throughout the earth's crust.
The variations in climate from area to area influence the rate, or length of time, that it takes to form. Variations of mineral content can affect the color. You'll mostly find very natural-looking, soft, complementary colors that are always classic.
Granite for Your New Kitchen Countertops
If you're thinking about granite countertops in Richmond, you'll have a lot of options because even with similar colors you'll never get two slabs that look alike, even when taken from the same quarry.
Rich in color and durability, granite is often the go-to material for new kitchen countertops in Richmond. The natural stone has outstanding strength and is heat resistant. It draws the eye and can be stunningly beautiful when the right cabinetry and flooring isn't blended in with similar colors. Contrasting tones and colors can really set off the granite, creating a showpiece of the kitchen countertops.
Granite for Bathroom Vanities
Granite makes a beautiful top for bathroom vanities. Although granite is a porous stone, it is sealed to make it resistant to stains. It is completely heat resistant, so setting down a hot curling iron directly onto it won't affect it at all.
