Spring is here, and that means it’s time for spring cleaning! Time to clear out that garage or attic, go through your closet, and dust off the grill! Spring is also a popular time for home remodels, and if you’re considering remodeling your kitchen or bathroom this spring, take a moment to think about including a natural stone countertop or vanity in your plans.
When it comes to kitchen and bath remodeling projects, there are a lot of good reasons to give natural stone such as granite or marble a try:
Natural stone countertops are unique. Whereas fabricated or engineered countertops use manufactured patterns and may look the same from one countertop to another, each and every natural stone countertop or vanity is unique, because each piece of stone is a naturally-occurring work of art, distinct from every other. The patterns in natural stones like granite and marble are determined by the conditions under which the stone is formed, and vary based on what region the stone was quarried from. This means that each and every slab is one of a kind, and you’ll never find another quite like it.
They look great. For centuries, marble and granite have been markers of distinction and taste. They can bring a classic sense of timelessness to almost any kitchen or bathroom, and can match almost any style of décor.
They last a lifetime. There’s a reason why famous sculptures and architectural treasures are so often made from stones like marble: marble and granite last down through the years. If treated properly, your natural stone countertop is a treasure that generations of your family will be able to enjoy.
And of course, they add to the value of your home. Chances are, any remodel is going to increase the value of your home, but few remodeling options have the proven resale value of natural stone countertops and vanities.
Those are just a few of the reasons why natural stone countertops and vanities are the perfect choice for your next home remodeling project. Natural stone countertops are perfect for cooking and baking, and bring a warmth and beauty to the kitchen that can’t be beat, while there are few things more luxurious than a natural stone vanity in your new bathroom.
When you ask around about the downsides of natural stone countertops and vanities, one of the first things you’ll hear about is keeping them in good shape.
