Don’t Take Granite for Granted!

Bathroom remodels do not have to cause homeowner’s a headache. Sometimes, when remodeling a new bathroom, the hardest part of the design process is choosing the countertops. Homeowners are looking for the perfect bathroom design that is both practical, functional and within a given budget. There are many options available for consumers and choosing granite countertops will take your bathroom remodel to the next level, without breaking the bank.

Don’t Take Granite for Granted!

Designers prefer the look of granite stone because of it offers both beauty and durability. It is available in numerous colors and designs, adding beauty to your project and can be cost efficient in the long term. It is inexpensive compared to other stones, and more durable then formic and lament countertops. This makes it a great economical choice for a remodeling project.

The average cost of granite is around $50.00 per square foot, if you are working with a small space, you may find a remnant piece for less cost. This is a small investment to make, considering the stone will add additional value to the home after the completed bathroom remodel. It is estimated a bathroom remodel, when done correctly, can add around $11,000.00 to the value of the home.

When trying to keep remodeling costs relatively low, stay away from the big-box retail stores. Local quarries and stone dealers will have a larger selection of granite to choose from and will beat the price of most big box stores. The stone is often cut to size, making installation a breeze. If you are nervous about installing it yourself, work with a local contractor who is very willing to install it for a fair price. After installation, it should be easily maintained with proper care.

Granite does not require any special cleaning products to maintain its richness. Once the granite is sealed properly after installation, cleaning and maintenance only requires a mild detergent, like dish soap, warm water and also a soft cloth. Homeowner’s will enjoy the ease of cleaning and not have to worry about using costly and caustic cleaning solutions.

Bathroom remodels can be very successful, especially when tasked with choosing fixtures, paint colors and countertops. Granite can take the guess work out of a stressful project and tie in any design look with ease. It is a choice that promises beauty, durability and a return on your investment. What more could you ask for from your project? Until next time, happy remodeling!
