Granite countertops were up-and-coming a decade ago, but they continue to be one of the most popular choices for kitchens and bathrooms today. Homeowners considering granite countertops will have a wide variety of colors, patterns and designs from which to choose. You can even get cheap granite countertops without compromising on look & quality. Knowing the facts about granite before you buy will help you make the right choice -- one that will last for years to come. Here are some of the factors involved in choosing granite countertops:

Granite countertops are naturally unique, and they add value to any home. Granite offers other benefits as well, including:

  • Various color and pattern options
  • Heat, scratch, dent and chemical resistance
  • Durability

Granite was expensive when it first came onto the market, but it has become more affordable in recent years. Nowadays, you can even add bevel, radius and square edging to granite countertops for a reasonable price. Some downsides to granite are that it is cold, scratchable and prone to damage from hot grease and repeated cutting over time. Additionally, it is easy to see its seams. If you're comparing granite with other natural stone options, consider the following:

  • Silestone, Corian and quartz countertops offer fewer color and pattern options
  • Quartz and Silestone countertops are more expensive to install
  • Corian is easily scratched, dented and damaged by pans
  • Other natural stone countertops can be installed without seams
