We’ve all seen those fabulously redesigned kitchens on various home renovation shows or on a favorite reality tv program. They look luxurious and out of reach for most pocketbooks, but what every homeowner should realize, is the return on investment is, in almost every case, well worth the extra expense. It also doesn’t hurt that, as the homeowner, you will get the chance to enjoy that gorgeous new kitchen for many years to come! Natural stone kitchen countertops are one of the best options for any home, and below we will explain why.
Beauty and Variety
With an abundance of diverse colors and patterns, the beauty of natural stone can instantly change any room into a showstopper. With thousands of commercial varieties and numerous applications, natural stone is an ideal choice in everything from building facades and walls, to kitchen and bathroom sinks and countertops, as well as decorative pieces fashioned by talented artists. There’s no end to the way natural stone can be displayed in a home.
Durability and Quality
Great things take time to make. Natural stone was formed over millions of years, so you know it is built to last! Some varieties are almost indestructible, and all are easy to maintain compared to other countertop products. With the proper maintenance, natural stone countertops can last the lifetime of the home.
It may come as a surprise, but the sustainability of natural stone products far exceeds most other industry standards. There is full use of the raw materials, with even the leftover stonemeal being used to replace fertilizers for agricultural use in many countries. There are almost no chemical products used during industrial processing, which means there is low to no harmful toxic waste. Also, the industrial processing uses low amounts of electric and water, making it a very efficient process to sustain.
