A newly remodeled kitchen or bathroom featuring high quality appliances and countertops can be a major selling point when you are trying to sell your house. If you are trying to decide which parts of your house to remodel to add the most value to it, the kitchen and bathroom are a good choice. Choosing kitchen and bathroom furnishings that will last a long time with little maintenance and which are of timeless appeal will help you sell your home more quickly and for a higher price.
You know you have reached the full bloom of adulthood when you start to daydream about remodeling your kitchen and bathrooms. When you were at the age where all fun was to be had playing video games in the living room or playing ping pong in the basement (a room that never gets remodeled except when it is in an utter state of disrepair), you probably never imagined that kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling would be fun. When you were young, you dreamed of saving up money to buy a Ferrari or to spend a year backpacking across Southeast Asia; you never thought you would find yourself looking forward to spending your hard earned money on granite countertops, bronze-colored faucets, and a stainless steel refrigerator, but here you are.
So while we are on the subject of countertops, they are among the most important decisions you will make during your kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling project. You probably take the countertops in your kitchen and bathroom for granted, but they get more use than almost any other part of the house. You use the countertops in your kitchen every time you prepare a meal. You use the bathroom countertops every time you brush your teeth or wash your face. Choosing to install granite countertops or marble countertops in your kitchen or bathroom should be one of the first decisions you make when starting your kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling project.
A granite countertop is a great choice for a practical and modern kitchen or bathroom. Granite is a type of igneous rock, meaning that it is produced by volcanic eruptions. If you’re imagining a granite countertop, you are probably thinking of it as being dark gray, which is not a very cheerful color for a kitchen or a guest bathroom, but actually dark gray is just one of the possible colors for granite. It can actually be any shade of gray, from almost black to almost white. Its color is not perfectly uniform, so the same piece of granite will contain both darker and lighter particles upon close inspection, and the different shades of gray may even be mixed with pink. Since granite countertops are made of solid rock, they are very heavy, and you should not try to install them as a do it yourself project. They are quite heavy, but granite is one of the most durable materials around. Your granite countertop could last for centuries. You might be dismayed when you see the price tag, but a granite countertop is a great investment.
