Thinking about a new countertop in your kitchen or bathroom? A new countertop in your kitchen or bathroom can transform the look of your room. There are many options, but two popular choices for countertops today are natural granite and engineered stone.
Granite is a naturally-occurring type of igneous rock that is mined from a quarry to produce countertops and tile. The pyramids in Egypt were constructed of granite blocks in the 26th century BC. It comes in a range of colors ranging from pinks and whites through black. Granite has a strong, porous surface that needs to be sealed yearly to provide extra protection from staining. No two slabs of granite are exactly alike and, for that reason, it cannot be replicated. It is important to visit the granite supplier to choose your stone, as each piece could contain a variety of colors and patterns. Your Morris Black designer can help with advice and recommendations.
