Kitchens are busy, messy places, but that doesn't mean they can't be beautiful. The key to maintaining beauty and elegance amid the chaos of three meals a day is to be smart about the materials you choose to use in the design of your space. Cabinets need to be durable and able to withstand regular wiping down. Floors need to stand up to heavy traffic and spills of all kinds and, to keep you sane, should offer a modicum of camouflage against crumbs and the other fallout from normal kitchen activities. And countertops should be granite. Granite is far and away the best material for kitchen countertops for the following three reasons:

·         Granite is a naturally versatile design choice. It is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, and can be finished in a diverse range of textures. This diversity means you can find a piece of granite that perfectly fits your design aesthetic, from classic to modern and everything in between.

·         Granite is durable and low maintenance. Once installed and professionally sealed, a granite countertop will need nothing more from you than regular, ordinary cleaning. Granite can stand up to high heat, cutting, and even the occasional bang from a heavy pot. It won't stain or etch when your tomato sauce spills and it won't scratch when you toss your keys on to it at the end of the day. If you don't mind a bit of polishing, choose a dark granite with a highly polished surface that will reflect light and add glamour to your space. If you aren't interested in polishing, opt for a granite in a lighter color with a honed finish. Either way, your counters will be gorgeous and will last a lifetime.

·         Granite is a great value. You can find granite in price points to fit any budget, so don't worry about cost. But that's not the only way granite adds value. Homeowners want granite, so adding granite to your home increases the value of your home.
