Granite is an igneous rock that is formed after the exposure of compounds to high heat. The structure of granite is crystalline and it is red, pink, grey, or white in color with, dark mineral grains that are visible and harder than marble. Granite is an ideal option for kitchen floors, countertops and bathrooms or anywhere else in areas that always get scratched or stained through daily use.

Wondering why you should go with granite? Below are some answers;

Exquisite beauty to your home

Granite gives a very attractive look to your home, and the surfaces come in a wide range of patterns and colors. Granite floors are beautiful and elegant.

Durability

Granite is also ranked as one of the hardest flooring materials available; it’s highly unlikely to crack. Granite is very resistant to scratches or stains. However, it requires regular maintenance in order to last long. It is a very dense stone.

Value for money

 Granite can be considerably more expensive than other flooring options, but it is better to pay much more for quality. If you can’t afford to tile a large area with granite, consider using it in areas such as guest bathrooms.

 Granite is limited because it is a natural stone, and its appearance is marked with color variations and irregularities.

Resistance to water and moisture

Granite is excessively resistant to moisture and water. Always clean granite surfaces using a damp cloth and use warm soapy water in order to remove tough stains.

Comfortably cooling

Granite floors have a comfortable feeling because the material has a cooling effect in warm climate areas.

Good for your health

Granite doesn’t attract bacteria, dirt, or dust, making it non-allergenic and hygienic. Granite floors are not slippery, and this reduces the risk of slips and falls.

 

 

They maintain their shine

As indicated earlier, granite stone floor tiles last for many years over carpets or wood flooring. Moreover, they maintain their original look over many years. They are also water resistant, making them a perfect solution for moist rooms. Granite flooring is very strong and dependable.

Versatile

Floor tiles can be installed outdoors or indoors, and they look great just about anywhere. Inside your home, they look especially great in the kitchens and bathrooms, as well as on steps, but you can install them in other areas as well (such as balconies or even living rooms).

Easy to maintain

After installation, seal the granite properly such that it is easier to clean and maintain.

Heat resistance

You can place hot pots on granite because the material is able to hold off heat from hot objects, making it a suitable choice for your countertop surface.

Easy installation

It is very easy and fast to install granite tops. Still, the installation process is not a DIY manoeuvre-you need a professional.
