Granite Kitchen Countertops are #1 in Pickering

Granite countertops used to be accessible only to the very wealthy, due to the fact that extracting the stone, processing it, and shipping it was labour-intensive, and time-consuming. By the 1980s, new technologies made it possible for these jobs to be carried out more efficiently and quickly, and the price of granite design elements became more affordable. Today, granite kitchen countertops are the first choice of homeowners in most parts of Canada, including Pickering and area.
Granite has many advantages over other types of kitchen countertop surfaces. These include:
  • Durability
  • Safety
  • Affordability
  • Heat Resistance
  • Ease of Care
  • Strength
However, many articles focus only on these practical concerns, and fail to highlight what may be granite's most appealing feature: its uniqueness.

One of a Kind

Granite is found in virtually every country in the world. It's an igneous rock that's formed when minerals crystallize under extreme heat and pressure beneath the earth's crust. The major minerals comprising granite are quartz and feldspar, but these are always accompanied by "accessory” minerals, which change from location to location, and even from lot to lot within a single block of granite. These accessory minerals give granite its colour, graining, patterning, and veining.
Most of us are familiar with the more common types of granite; the neutral colours like tan, cream, white, brown, grey, or black. Often, the stone chosen for home countertops is subtly patterned, with small flecks or faint graining. There are many reasons why designers often opt for these more neutral granite slabs, including versatility and resale strategy. These neutral stone slabs are compatible with every type of paint colour, and every style of décor. Yet even the most neutrally toned and faintly patterned piece of granite is utterly unique! Undertones of other colours, flecks that catch the light and reflect it back, patterns that recur or wind around; your granite counter is unlike any other countertop in the world. It's nature's own work of art.
If even the most neutral granite countertops are unique, you can only imagine how dramatically singular exotic granite slabs will appear. Visiting a stone showroom will help you to understand the wide variety of granite available. Types of stone from India, China, Brazil, the Scandinavian countries, and even from various provinces in Canada offer a huge variety of colour and patterning. Vivid blues and greens, deep oxblood and aubergine shades, sunny yellows and fiery oranges – granite can be found in every colour of the rainbow and more. If you have a bold sense of style, you may want to investigate these exotic granite varieties. There's sure to be one unique piece of stone that will be the perfect centerpiece for your kitchen, and a point of interest for the whole home.

The Right Choice

Some Pickering homeowners choose granite kitchen countertops because of its toughness and durability. Others choose it because it is beautiful and unique. But no matter why you select this amazing natural stone, it's a choice you won't regret.
