Craving Granite

Here’s a fact: Granite is mesmerizing. Some may even argue its beauty is hypnotic. The unique design of this natural stone is impossible to be ignored. Subtlety shimmering in your kitchen, hinting you to come closer. Aah. This is love.

You may think you’re inseparable with the kitchen. But the rest of your house needs the same kind of loving too. So why not introduce granite to your bathroom, your basement, maybe even your bedroom (if you’re feeling adventurous)? This granite addiction isn’t a bad thing at all. It’s only cure is to be surrounded by them so you can appreciate its majesty.

Look at your bathrooms/powder rooms. They’re not bad, but they’re not exactly eye-catching. It’s probably just a little bland. Having a granite counter top would do wonders to your bathroom, given that you keep it clear enough to actually see your counter. Since it’s granite, it’ll be a great investment in any room you put it in. No more scrubbing tiles or unsightly stains. As long as you take good care of it (i.e. just water and soap), then it’ll stay with you for years to come.

If you have a bar area or thinking about having one, then you probably already know that granite is a perfect match for it. Just imagine a bar with a plastic laminate counter top. Not cool. The bar is a place to entertain, to show off, and to have a good time at. The granite will just give it that environment, that certain mood of winding-down and catching up with close company.

As for bedrooms, you could install granite for a table next to your bed. Same goes for office tables and coffee tables. It would also be a stunner outdoors as you grill and barbecue under the sun. Maybe you just want a slab to display in the living room. Honestly, the possibilities are endless.

If you’re still having doubts. Go ahead and search before-and-after pictures for installations of granite in different places in the house. You’ll be amazed by how drastic the rooms would change with a just a switch of a counter top.
