Kitchen designs often boast of granite stones in its interiors. More often than not, this material is incorporated in several household items and furniture. Below are the common uses of granite stone in kitchen design.
Be it granite tabletops, countertops, or islands. These are elegant and at the same time versatile enough to match it with the cabinets and backsplash. The water resistance capacity of the stone is excellent and does not damage the equipment. For example, if you are working with raw meat or anything which can cause contamination than granite can be sanitized easily.
Polished granite flooring is a stunning addition to the kitchen wealth. The natural stone offers a subtle pattern and texture compared to marble that shows off veining rather intensely. For those who are prone to allergies, granite tiles are ideal. They are resistant to bacteria and can be kept spick-and-span with just regular mopping.
Granite Wall Cladding
What can be more robust than a kitchen with granite countertop, granite flooring, and granite wall cladding? Yes, even for a wall cladding or backsplash, the stone can excel in its performance. It is just as functional and beautiful for wall cladding as it is for tabletops or flooring. The stone creates an incredible barrier between the wall and water. A granite wall cladding can be easily coupled with a custom-made countertop. Using the stone for both backsplash and countertop enhances visual continuity while also saves on time and investment.
