Granite Countertops Are Great For Your Bathroom

Granite countertops are a popular choice for kitchens. However, they are just as great for a bathroom. If a bathroom remodel is in your future, learn why installing granite countertops is an excellent choice.


Granite countertops give the gift of versatility. Although granite is a natural material, the stone does come in all sorts of variations. If you want to create a light and airy bathroom, there is an option for you. If you want something more masculine or with dark accents, there is also a stone option just for you. Even if you're not quite sure what direction you want to go, you can choose a neutral-toned granite slab and use it as your inspiration. 


There is little required from you in terms of maintenance for your granite countertops. When you initially have the countertop installed, you will want to have the material sealed. However, once this step is completed, there is little you need to do to maintain the luxurious appearance of the granite aside from cleaning. Just make sure you choose granite-friendly cleaners. You don't want to use traditional cleaners on your granite. Otherwise, you could strip the sealant and cause the stone to look dull. 


A bathroom is an overall clean environment, but there are bacteria and other elements in the space that can be risky. However, granite is an excellent tool to help keep you and your family safe. When granite is sealed correctly, it becomes a non-porous surface. When a material is non-porous, bacteria, dirt, grime, and other contaminants can't settle within the material, which in turn can help limit the risk of germs spreading. As a result, your cleaning process becomes easier, and your bathroom remains cleaner. 


On a busy morning, it's easy to rest your curling iron on the bathroom countertop accidentally. On many countertops, this simple mistake would lead to significant damage. However, with granite countertops, the opposite is true. Granite is a heat-resistant material. So, if you rest your curling iron on the countertop for a few moments accidentally, you don't have to worry about damage. Although your countertop will be fine, it is; however, a good idea not to get into the habit of making this mistake as it could introduce a fire hazard.
