Granite is another natural stone that is a popular choice for the kitchen, and brings a touch of the outdoors inside. Granite is pulled directly from the quarry and cut for your kitchen. Granite has a speckled and mottled surface, comprised of black, white, pink, and grey colors. It’s possible to coordinate colors with your kitchen style. Granite is classed as one of the most durable countertops on the market today. It can resist scratches, stains, and heat. A granite countertop will look as good ten years from now, as it does today.
