Granite is light-colored, with large, dark visible grains. Depending on the mineral composition, it can be red, pink, gray, or white on the dark background. It comes right from the quarry, and then it is cut, polished, and fabricated into countertops, with each granite slab being different in mineral pattern and color. You'll never see your countertop in anyone else's home.
Granite countertops have a shiny, brilliant quality and are highly durable and resistant to chipping and scratching. Granite is referred to as the "hardest rock." It's also affordable, adds value to your kitchen or bath, and is heat resistant; a hot pot or pan can be placed directly on the countertop with no melting or blistering. Once it is sealed, it's impossible to absorb bacteria.
Other stones used for countertops include soapstone, marble, slate, onyx, limestone and travertine. At Network Interiors we have a large stone inventory with an in-house fabricator and over 25 years of experience. Come into our showroom
