There’s no doubt that your choice to invest in a home is one of the biggest decisions that any of us will make. Beyond that initial home inspection which identifies that you are making a sound investment, many of us will look at our new home with ideas to customize the space, refresh the décor and to make sure that our home is a reflection of our life and our tastes. Inside and out, you’ll be looking at your home to make decisions that you hope will have an enduring impact as well as add to the value of your home over time.
This examination and consideration often starts with appliances and heating systems, and while there are some options, a lot of the solutions come somewhat standard. However, when you shift your attention to the interior design and décor of your new home, the possibilities are truly endless. Nowhere is this more important than in your kitchen, which can often become the hub of family activity.

Granite is a Sound Investment
When properly installed and sealed, a quality granite counter top never requires replacement. Resistant to scratching, chipping, cracking and heat, granite is perhaps one of the most resilient materials available for counter tops – areas in our home that are often subject to a wide array of uses. With granite, liquids can’t penetrate the surface, so you avoid challenges with water damage, it is easy to clean and maintain and it does not discolor over time with age or through exposure to UV light.
Some Are Dissuaded by Cost
If your purchase price is your only consideration, then granite may not be the solution for you. Let’s be direct about that. It’s true, that the cost per square foot for granite is much higher than other materials. However, while you will invest more up front for granite, the lifetime costs saved will start to demonstrate the value of this solution. Some materials are more prone to damage and discoloration and require replacement every ten to twenty years, which starts to double your costs over the life of your home. Designed to last for more than a generation, granite has been assessed by popular countertop guides as offering a 100% return on investment.
