Sims Exteriors and Remodeling
Kitchen counters are begging to be covered with granite now that it is more affordable than ever.
There are many decisions to be made when you decide to tackle a remodel in your kitchen. With options like tough concrete and recycled glass, picking a counter material is one of the biggest decisions in a remodel. These days, it is normal for people to use granite for their kitchen counters. It really is standard to use granite in homes now.
Today, for kitchen design, homeowners are using granite in kitchen remodeling for counter tops, back splashes and accents throughout the kitchen remodel. And, the fact that granite is more affordable than ever is no coincidence.
Up until about a decade ago, granite was an exclusive property only found in new homes in the higher price range and in big ticket kitchen remodeling plans. Since some new design concepts have popped on the scene, granite has become much more affordable, even for those with a more moderate budget.
Kitchen Remodeling – Upscale Your Home
Even though it is becoming more commonplace, the look and feel of granite is often still unequaled by any other material. If you’re looking for a classy upgrade option, granite is the way to go. Since the demand for granite has grown so quickly, many color and design options have recently become availble.
Kitchen Remodeling – As Green As They Get
The original “green” counter top is granite. Granite is a material that can be recycled even after it has been harvested from nature with little to no impact on our environment. There are other countertop options that are not as healthy for the environment…like quartz. Some other non eco-friendly options include laminates and corian.
The way you live your life can be greatly impacted by the material you choose to use in your remodel. There are also other options should you decide to use not-so-green materials in the rest of your kitchen remodel.
Kitchen Remodeling – Recycle The Old
There are so many different color options if you choose to use granite.
As was said previously, granite can be recycled; so if you need to replace granite that you already own, it won’t go to waste. There are not too many materials that can be used more than once either outside or inside. Granite can be reused by creating furniture for an outdoor space. And, if you decide to dispose of your granite, there are no issues because it is completely natural with no chemicals to leach out and contaminate ground water. If you don’t have a use for your old granite, and you don’t want to throw it out, consider selling it to a shop for someone else to use in their home.
