Adding granite countertops ranks very close to the top of upgrades for the kitchen. Granite's rich colours, unique patterns and strength make it an ideal choice for kitchen countertops and bath vanities, as well as other uses in the home. Granite is also extremely low maintenance and each stone has its own mineral make up that creates beautiful colours and patterns. There is practically no end to colour selections for granite countertops. No matter what your kitchen colours or appliance colours, you can find colour desires. Granite countertop colours and patterns are available in very even, almost solid colours of granite or they can vary dramatically with swirling colours, embedded crystals and wild patterns.
